Bully messes with karate champ. [video]

The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:
The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.
The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.
This is a hero.

Bringing this back.

Here’s a sure-fire way to know that you hate women: when an incident of intimate partner violence in which a man knocks a woman unconscious gains national attention and every question or comment you think to make has to do with her behavior, you really hate women. Like, despise.

There is no other explanation. There is no “I need all the facts.” There is no excuse. You hate women. Own it.

Now, you probably don’t believe you hate women. You probably honestly think you’re being an objective observer whose only interest is the truth. You are delusional.

We have this problem in our discourse around the most important challenges we face where we feel we have to be “fair to both sides.” But sometimes, one of those sides is subjugation and oppression. If you’re OK with legitimizing that side in the interest of “fairness,” you’re essentially saying you’re OK with oppression as a part of the human condition. That’s some hateful shit.

I just love thinking about the parts of Ginny’s life that have absolutely nothing to do with Harry Potter

Ginny writing long-winded letters to Charlie about her Care of Magical Creatures classes and her feelings about Bill’s new earring

Ginny defending Luna in their classes together and holding hands with her in the hall

Ginny kissing Neville on the mouth and making him turn bright red

Ginny training for Quidditch tryouts because she’s really fucking good and knows she deserves a spot on the team no matter who’s the bloody Captain

Ginny doing her homework on her bed with Arnold sleeping in her hair

Ginny writing letters to Remus that include puzzles and riddles for Sirius, to keep him occupied, because she’s kind and compassionate and knows he’s having a hard time

Ginny taking astronomy just so she has an excuse to sit out on the North Tower at night, alone

Ginny teaming up with Peeves to wreak havoc and getting it blamed on Fred and George

Ginny helping Fred and George develop their anti-Dark Magic line bc she’s so damn good at DADA

and all the friends Ginny has that never get names because Harry doesn’t know who they are and never sees her with them, so it’s as if they don’t exist

man Ginny got shafted y’all, I want books from Ginny’s perspective

I think one of the reasons the Harry Potter Epilogue was so poorly received was because the audience was primarily made up of the Millennial generation.

We’ve walked with Harry, Ron and Hermione, through a world that we thought was great but slowly revealed itself to be the opposite. We unpeeled the layers of corruption within the government, we saw cruelty against minorities grow in the past decades, and had media attack us and had teachers tell us that we ‘must not tell lies’. We got angry and frustrated and, like Harry, Ron and Hermione, had to think of a way to fight back. And them winning? That would have been enough to give us hope and leave us satisfied.

But instead. There was skip scene. And suddenly they were all over 30 and happy with their 2.5 children.

And the Millennials were left flailing in the dust.

Because while we recognised and empathised with everything up to that point. But seeing the Golden Trio financially stable and content and married? That was not something our generation could recognise. Because we have no idea if we’re ever going to be able to reach that stage. Not with the world we’re living in right now.

Having Harry, Ron and Hermione stare off into the distance after the battle and wonder about what the future might be would have stuck with us. Hell, have them move into a shitty flat together and try and sort out their lives would have. Have them with screaming nightmares and failed relationships and trying to get jobs in a society that’s falling apart would have. Have them still trying to fix things in that society would have. Because we known Voldemort was just a symptom of the disease of prejudice the Wizarding World.

But don’t push us off with an ‘all was well’. In a world about magic, JK Rowling finally broke our suspension of disbelief by having them all hit middle-class and middle-age contentment and expecting a fanbase of teenagers to accept it.

Also. Since when was ‘don’t worry kids, you’re going to turn out just like your parents’ ever a happy ending? Does our generation even recognise marriage and money and jobs as the fulfillment of life anymore? Does our generation even recognise the Epilogue’s Golden Trio anymore?

Saying ‘what kind of an idiot doesn’t know about the Yellowstone supervolcano’ is so much more boring than telling someone about the Yellowstone supervolcano for the first time.

School teaches you that ignorance is shameful, rather than being a person’s default AND ENTIRELY FIXABLE state. Sucks the fun outta learning, if you let it.

Will always reblog.

XKCD is my favorite comic of all time, for this reason. Tumblr could learn a huge lesson, especially from this comic.
if someone doesn’t know something, or says something wrong, do not shame them, teach them.

notably there is a threshold here where the ignorance overlaps with ‘being a decent human being’ and it is entirely justifiable to be hurt and angry at people who are being fucking horrible even if they’re doing so out of ignorance.I say this because I’ve seen a LOT of people use this comic as a reference for why it’s the injured party’s job to educate them and not be angry or hurt by their ignorance.
