some are better then others

tbh the US is a hellscape dystopia compared to the education system of any other country

I wouldn’t say that. I would say that different countries have different systems, and some might have certain parts of the system that are better than others. But the bottom line is that post-secondary education around the world is a disastrous hellscape in general that is primarily sustained by massive amounts of gatekeeping and through the insistence on providing privileged access to an arbitrarily chosen few while excluding almost everyone else. Some states may choose to provide freer access through reduced or eliminated tuition fees, but higher academia is still rife with shittons of nonsense that exploits a lot of vulnerable people and enforces strict gatekeeping policies while still exploiting the work of the aforementioned vulnerable folks. When you consider the system as a whole, a few flipsides here or there don’t really make up for the massively negative experiences that many people still have, and that needs to change.

This isn’t to diminish the hellscape that is unique to the US education system ofc, but just to point out that places that people often say “have it better” often don’t.

@ the antis laughing at the karamel fandom because of the PZ cliffhanger….

do you guys even realize that we have spent 3+ months speculating about this story line. Some wanting it, some not wanting it. We have covered every possibility and this was #1 in the cards. We have been through the emotional roller coaster without it even happening. Extremely long speculations posts have been made solely on the PZ, loads fanfic has been written about a goodbye, we aren’t the least bit delusional (unlike yall) about this…okay? 

We weren’t naive, oblivious, or ignorant about this potentially happening in the finale. We prepared for it, some better than others. ITS NOT A SHOCK! Ya, we will cry, yes we will be angry, BUT we all know what a hero’s journey is, and this is the next step.

And the icing on the cake? If Mon El doesn’t return in S3, we are still going to be happy cause Chris Wood is free of this toxic ass fandom. And if Mon El is in S3, we will never stop fighting for him and his character, and loving Mon El and Karamel. 

So either way, we win, and either way – you lose.

One question, not meaning to be rude and sorry if I end up being: Why do you still think Snape was a good person if he bullied students for no reason and let his obsession take over his life until the moment of his death? I really love your blog and your fanfictions, but I'm a little bit confused about that point of view. I hoped you could explain it to me, so I'd understand better why you reblog some things and think other things in general :) thanks for your time

First of all he’s a great guy, be doesn’t have to be good although I’d say devoting the last 2 decades of your life to righting your wrongs makes him good. Two, actually read the posts instead of dismissing them. Check out my #Severus Snape and #Marauders tags and my opinions are rather obvious.

I mean, why do you people love James when according to Lily herself he assaulted anyone just because he could? Hell, he sexually assaulted Severus by stripping him without consent. So what if James became a cop? Are you trying to tell me that being a cop automatically makes you a decent person? 

FYI, Remus and Sirius said James never stopped bullying, he just got better at hiding the evidence so Lily would date him. He started their relationship on a foundation of lies. James is a piece of shit and is such an example of White Privilege that I can’t stand him. And people like him and excuse his actions because he was a rich Gryffindor which must ‘obviously’ mean he’s good.

Darling, just hold on ♡

Took a break from comics to draw my favorite ladies!! I’m not in love with how this turned out, but they can’t all be winners!

I do like how their outfits came out though. I may do more with those sometime.

Happy Birthday, Selina! <3

Seeing people complain about the CW’s lack of positive female rep and in particular female friendships is great. Seeing them complain about Arrow especially is even better.

Seeing them complain about it without mentioning Laurel Lance though, is WILD.

“Felicity’s so isolated, she has no female friendships”

“The new team has no women”

“What happened to women supporting women”

“Why are there no female friendships”

like, man, I dunno, it’s like they all disappeared for NO REASON I WONDER WHAT HAPPENED
