This is the secret to life.

Politicalprof: David Foster Wallace explains it all to you. Listen.

There is no way to overstate how much we recommend taking 10 minutes to watch this video. 

I’m really glad I watched this, and I think people have nothing to lose and all the more to gain from doing the same.


These are just getting better.

Oh Leo…

I’ve just seen and heard so much hatred. I’ve been called garbage, I’ve been called the death of fucking good music, trash, stupid, pointless and disposable. I don’t understand. I’m just trying to make people happy. And it’s such positive, fun music. Like, why are people so angry?




I don’t even care for her music all that much

But all of y’all people who are vehemently, aggressively insulting and just plain fucking rude about artists’ work

Y’all need a goddamn dropkick to the head.


Study well, my collegiate brethren.

thank you

I can’t stop laughing at Harry running the fuck awaythe boy who lived ladies and gentlemen.

….You realize, of course, that Hermione Granger lit a teacher on fire when she was eleven, and kept a person alive in a jar for a year when she was fourteen, and studies dark and forbidden magics for kicks, and is one of the brightest and strongest witches of her era. If she came at me, even wandless, I would aparate to Neptune to get away from her.

Hermione Granger also: 

  • punched Draco Malfoy in the nose for being an idiot 
  • purposefully performed a confundus charm on whatshsface WHILE HE WAS FLYING just so Ron would win (omfg that is so fucking dangerous) 
  • literally pulled a fucking Bourne Identity on her parents and managed to set them up in fucking Australia (jesus christ she literally made it so that she NEVER EXISTED wtf that’s so fucking 007)
  • Convinced the Ministry of Magic to give her an incredibly dangerous and volatile device that allowed her to ALTER TIMELINES COMPLETELY (just because she was so smart, literally, that is the reason, her “potential”) 
  • Has enough basic survival skills and badass magic to literally disappear to the middle of nowhere and flourish AND figure out Voldemort’s plot with Harry 
  • Hermione also figures out not only what Voldemort’s plan is, but generally how to beat it, WAY BEFORE VOLDEMORT EVER DOES. Why? because she is just that much smarter and better at magic than everybody else

in conclusion: Voldemort wishes he could be as awesome as Hermione, that’s why he wants to kill her so bad. 

So why was this series about Harry Potter again?

because apparently any media without a straight white male lead character won’t sell


Okay, I’m a feminist. I love Hermione Granger. But I also love Harry Potter. The point of the series is that we all have different strengths and weaknesses, but by working together, we can bring out the best in each other. Hermione was wonderful, and could do a lot of things that Harry couldn’t, but Harry was special in his own ways that Hermione wasn’t. I think there’s a lot to be said that a character doesn’t have to be the ‘main character’ in order to mean a lot to the series. Harry knows that without Hermione, he would never have made it. The audience knows it, too. 

And finally, saying that ‘any media without a straight white male lead won’t sell’ might actually be more impactful if you were arguing that a well-rounded woman of color should be the lead instead of a one-dimensional male character, and weren’t using it to argue taking the lead from a dynamic straight white male to a dynamic straight white female.

#yep #and so far they haven’t saved you from hell yet

No, you don’t even understand how much this upsets me. He just looks so damn vulnerable and to think of that poor little baby in HELL I just want to wrap him in my arms and keep him safe forever.








everybodys dad has a weird obsession with something

mine likes building model trains and things, and documentaries about the civil war

Mine flips his shirt up and flashes pets.

Mine is constantly expecting disasters such as house fires or the collapse of the American monetary system. Given that he also believes that President Obama is a Kenyan-born Muslim hellbent on instituting sharia law in the U.S., it’s really no wonder.

Mine likes taking pictures of lighthouses, cajun cooking, and Florida beaches.  Especially Key West.

My dad is obsessed with conspiracy theories.

My dad is obsessed with native plants and science fiction novels

Mine makes bullets and has a fucking turkey caller.

Men’s Issues



  • Societal expectations of masculinity
  • Societal expectations to provide for women
  • No long term reversible male birth control
  • Men who are raped are more likely to remain silent and be dismissed or outright laughed at 
  • Unfair treatment in child custody battles
  • No support for male victims of domestic abuse
  • Media portrayal of married men as weak morons

Not men’s issues

  • The friend zone
  • Women not dating you

which are all the result of ~*~misogyny~*~

All that matters to me is the work. Without that my brain rots. Put that in your blog. Or better still, stop inflicting your opinions on the world.
