i was legitimately screaming the entire time

anytime i see a post with nursey being v romantic and dex being a memer i 100% agree but i am also picturing dex internally screaming the entire time like this boy is deeply in love but when nursey asks him out his brain just goes blue screen of death and he says something like, “yeah sure” and shrugs even though he wants to scream out a sick guitar solo right there

also dex definitely has issues communicating w people? like it isnt uncommon for people to misread his emotions or what he’s trying to say and its v frustrating/confusing bc he isnt really clear on where the misunderstandings are coming from?? 

he legitimately does not have words for his feelings for this boy and he definitely shows his affection very very differently from how nursey shows him but make no mistake anytime nursey does something sweet dex is burning with the rage of a thousand suns/living a constant litany of “be cool Will BE COOL”/lying face down on the floor in death’s sweet embrace 

okay so re: that last post about HP + homophobia. what’s EXTRA harmful about the werewolves as HIV/AIDS metaphor is that is creates a scenario in which it’s ENTIRELY FUCKING REASONABLE to be afraid of the people afflicted by the metaphor disease.

there are those posts about how Ron is written as racist that have been around for approximately ever and cite his panic/fear at finding out Lupin is werewolf, but that is a legitimately justifiable fear. you’re 14 years old, you and your two best friends are trapped in a small space where no one will hear you scream with a man who could at any time turn into an animal whose only goal is to infect or kill you. like yes, JKR’s werewolves are an AIDS metaphor, but they’re a shitty one and Ron is entirely right to be afraid of Lupin in that moment. Lupin does in fact end up doing exactly what Ron was afraid of.

I understand what JKR was going for in presenting Lupin as a lovable sweater wearing nerd who ~happens to have a disease~. but that metaphor falls to absolute shit when the disease in question does make him a legitimate danger to society. you can’t criticize bigots while at the same time handing them a perfectly good excuse for their bigotry.  


I was so horrified today,I went through a drive through with my mom,I wasn’t paying to much attention to anything but my phone,but suddenly she went from speaking in a normal tone to screaming at this poor guy who looked barely old enough to work and who began crying while trying to fix his mistake on her order something about cookies not being hot and her drink not having enough ice,he was shaking all over and starting to stutter while he was doing this,and she just kept yelling at him!i was just siting there mortified the entire time,before she finally drove off after a watched this kid practically run away so the manager could ‘fix’ it and when she stopped to turn out of the parking lot,I legitimately got out told her I was walking back to my dads,then went in and apologized to this poor kid who was literally sobbing as his manager tried to calm him down and stuck $20 in the tip jar.She called me saying she was pissed I didn’t think it was okay for her to verbally assault a 15 year old to literal tears because ‘I was just hungry you know how I get’.I was livid,I don’t give a shit how hungry you are, don’t you EVER take it out on some poor kid so that he breaks down in tears
