Today in North Seattle, a pregnant*, Black mother of four* was murdered by police in her home after calling 911 for help for a burglary in progress. Her name was Charleena Lyles. There is a vigil going on right now (6:15 PM PST) at Magnuson Park near the soccer fields. Please attend if you are in the area and available. Let me know if this post needs more/different tags.
Listen up folks!
So, we all know about our Hogwarts houses and we also know that it is an unspoken rule that your Hogwarts house is kind of your own very important, very chaotic but also very lovable family.
However, I am slowly but steadily getting sick of hearing:
“Oh, you’re a Slytherin, so you are an evil piece of shit.”
Like, no. Kindly f*ck off. It’s true that once you have pissed me off, I’ll make your life miserable, but that doesn’t mean that I’m evil, at least not per se.
And this does not only go for Slytherins.
It goes for every house.
You wanna know how I know? Apart from the obvious evidence given in the books, let’s just take one short look at their freakin’ crests.
☆ GRYFFINDOR ☆
Their house animal is a bloody lion!
Yes, it’s true that male lions sometimes fight recklessly. BUT, a lion pride has a strict hierarchy and rules which are to be followed. The young lions are to be protected at all cost and the pride is literally living together. Whether they are hunting or grooming each other or simply lying on the sun together. They protect each other, the pride and their territory.
So, should you ever think that Gryffindors are happy go lucky idiots , than you are most likely fucking wrong. Thank you very much.
☆ HUFFLEPUFF ☆
Oh boy, don’t even get me started… You think a badger is cute and harmless? Well, yes they are, but still. Have you ever heard of the honey-badger? Probably the most badass living mammal I have ever heard of. That animal eats snakes! Freakin’ snakes!!
It digs out the honey out off a bee hive and gets stung ten to twenty times and simply does not give a shit.
If you still think Hufflepuffs are vulnerable you better get ready to get your ass kicked.
☆ RAVENCLAW ☆
Alright, so, Ravenclaws always read and have a stick up their arse? Well, think again!
Their animal is a motherfudging eagle. That creature is so epic even Americas bald eagle loses its feathers. Have you seen its claws? Because I have and they certainly aren’t just for decoration.
They might have their head in the clouds but from up there they can see all your flaws so shut the fuck up about Ravenclaws being boring.
☆ SLYTHERIN ☆
Yes, you say the snake is an evil demon? Well , you thought wrong, asshat! It’s true that the snake is a sign of the wicked, but it is also known for its wisdom and healing. Snake poison is indeed used for certain antidotes hence the use of the snake as the sign of medicine.
Furthermore , in mythology it is the symbol of eternity and primal energy (Uroborus.)
So yeah, you wanna say that I’m a piece of shit? Okay, maybe so. But that has nothing to do with my Hogwarts house. So leave it.
