but this was obligatory

“The sweat on your forehead as you walk to Dhuhr is greater than your tears in Taraweeh, for the first is mandatory and the second is commendable. It’s a scam to sleep through Dhuhr or Asr in Ramadan, then exhaust yourself in Taraweeh and Tahajjud prayers.

These are all signs that the outwardly appearances have hijacked our lives. Be Careful. Remember. A single obligation is superior to standing at night for all of Ramadan.“

“The odd thing is, Harry,“ he said softly, "that it may not have meant you at all. Sibyll’s prophecy could have applied to two wizard boys, both born at the end of July that year, both of whom had parents in the Order of the Phoenix, both sets of parents having narrowly escaped Voldemort three times. One, of course, was you. The other was Neville Longbottom.

i just want to talk about some of the bullshit that makes this post so great:

  • exactly 5 tags (the max number that the post will show up in searches for)
  • one of which is #incident
  • Here’s a thing that happened to one of my friends. I was there.” i could say so much about just this two sentences but i feel its better just presented without comment
  • the perfect spelling & punctuation that actually makes it read as less well written
  • every sentence ends in a period and there’s no profanity in this anecdote about getting beaten up who did op expect to fool with this
  • feeling the need to specify that their conversation was meaningless
  • op is such a better fighter than their friend
  • but I managed to avoid brutalization by going for their faces.
  • the nonchalant tone of the entire thing really
  • just the idea of people driving around a bus in “Down with Cis” shirts and assaulting random bystanders
  • the fucking hypocrisy and gall of a cis person writing something like this about trans people
  • and then it doesnt even end really the post just stops abruptly
  • i just read op’s about page and its exactly what you’d expect

We have reprogrammed reality. Language is a virus, religion an operating system, and prayers are just so much fucking spam.
