why discriminate

Draco before the First Task
  • Lucius: That Potter boy won't last five minutes against a dragon
  • Draco: What are you saying Father? He's amazing. He'll definitely make it to ten. And then it'll be over only because he'll end it spectacularly with some daring stunt <3<3<3
  • Lucius: Oh Draco, you're so young and stupid and W R O N G
  • Draco: *glares*
  • Draco: *muttering* My Potter will hear about this

straight overwatch fans: why does everyone discriminate against straight ships!!! I’m so oppressed

the el gee bee tees: actually we adore and support and make content for anahardt and other healthy cute het ships

straight overwatch fans: hmm…. Mm….. hmmm……… but what about shipping a 19 year old with a 56 year old man instead

"BUT ABLEISM ISNT AS BAD AS RACISM/SEXISM/OTHER FORMS OF DISCRIMINATION, THATS WHY WE DONT TALK ABOUT IT AS MUCH!!!1"

1. yes it is, if you actually dont think so youre either wildly ignorant or ableist, or both.

2. dont compare who has it worse as a way to excuse silence/erasure/acceptance of ableism, thats ableist.

3. if you dont include ableism in your social justice, and your thought of equality simply because you dont think its “as bad” as other forms of discrimination and inequality, stop.fighting for social.justice cause youre doing it wrong my guy, and excluding disabled people in this way makes you ableist.

4. if you think this, youre ableist and need to get your shit together.

5. Ableism exists, stop excusing it, stop erasing it, stop accepting it, stop ignoring it, stop excluding us. STOP. BEING. ABLEIST.

“We won the war,” they say.

Harry isn’t inclined to agree. How can they say that when former Death Eaters are still being persecuted, when their children are being outcasted for something out of their control?

He sees Draco Malfoy’s child, Scorpius, sitting in the front of the class, keeping to himself, and feels his heart break. He hears the jibes that the other students, his own students, throws at the poor boy, and it makes him angry. A punishment is enough for the offenders, he thinks, because they’re still young. They have time to learn. The parents, he knows, are the ones who won’t change. He sees it in their eyes, the way a haunted expression washes over and clouds their judgment. It’s frustrating to see that all his efforts didn’t change anything at all.

“I didn’t fight a war for this,” he wants to scream, “I didn’t risk my life just for another group to be discriminated against.”


“Why didn’t you marry Ginny?” they ask.

Harry’s tired of people asking. Molly’s a lovely person, the mother figure that he never had, but she doesn’t understand. Marriage wasn’t the answer, not at the time. He would wake up in the middle of the night screaming in terror. He would flinch at the sight of a wand pointed at him, whether it is with good intentions or not, and would have to fight the urge to draw his own wand. His eyes would dart around a place, searching for exits, even if he knew it to be safe. For a time, his hand never strayed far from his holster, fingertips always in contact touch with the wand in case of an attack.

 Harry knew that he wasn’t stable, that he needed time, time alone, to heal his scars (if they ever did heal). Ginny wasn’t happy about that, not understanding his exact struggle, and thus they had to separate.

“I was broken,” he whispers softly, “I am broken. Can’t you see?”


“How can you forgive him?” they wonder.

Harry just does. Draco had apologized and offered to repay a Life-Debt, but Harry refuses. The past is in the past and there’s no use in dwelling on it. Draco had been young and he made all the wrong choices. Harry wasn’t going to fault him for doing what he thought was right. He’s just happy that Draco had changed, seeing the error in his ways.

It did, however, come as a surprise when Draco came to him after his classes had ended with flowers in hand. They had been talking more and more with Draco constantly checking up on Scorpius. It’s cute, Harry thinks, but he keeps that to himself.

“To apologize again?” Harry asks bemusedly. Draco hasn’t sent an apology gift in a while, but he couldn’t for the life of him think why Draco would get him flowers.

Draco shakes his head. “No.” His cheeks are dusted a light pink. “To ask you out on a date.”

“Everyone deserves a second chance,” he replies. “And to answer your question, how can I not?”


“You deserve better,” they patronize.

Harry’s response is quick and sweet.

“And, I got it.” He smirks and walks away to where Draco and Scorpius are waiting.

This Gay Teen Deserves An A+ For Her Feminist Yearbook Quote

“Twitter user @casualnosebleed shared a photo of a yearbook quote chosen by her close friend Caitlyn Cannon on Tuesday, and in just one day, the image was retweeted almost 4,000 times. In her Twitter bio, Cannon describes herself as a “feminist” and “really gay.” Her senior quote sums that up quite perfectly.

The quote reads: “I need feminism because I intend on marrying rich and I can’t do that if my wife and I are making .75 cent for every dollar a man makes.”

Cannon, a 17-year-old who just graduated from Oak Hills High School in California, said she found the quote on Tumblr and changed the parts that were written from a man’s perspective. She chose the quote because she wanted to leave something behind that was both different and true to herself.

“I was tired of seeing the same old quotes from popular books and movies and authors, and I wanted to call attention to a problem that women face,” she said in an email to The Huffington Post. “I’ve never really been ashamed to say that I am gay, so the LGBT aspect was simply who I am.”

GO CAITLYN!!! NICE WORK “KEEPING IT 100″!

Cannon describes herself as a “feminist” and “really gay.”  

Why am I not fucking surprised they flagged my Life Is Strange videos?

Hey did you know you can’t say gay or lesbian on Youtube? Did you also know that if your video is flagged with that yellow icon called “limited or no ads” then your video isn’t even shown on the site???? Like purposefully not in recommended and sometimes not even in the subscription box so your subscribers can watch it????

Did you also know It takes a fucking week or more to fix? But they’ll only fix it if you reach 1,000 views in 28 days! 

Fuck this website. I can’t even’t be fucking excited about this game on Youtube because once I mention gay shit they flag me.

EDIT:

Oh what’s that? I’m over reacting?? I’m making a big deal about nothing?

THEY FUCKING FLAGGED MORE OF IT.

if you think I’m joking or making a big deal, you bet your fucking ass I will. Every time I upload a video containing LGBTQ+ content, this happens. While yes my other videos get flagged when there isn’t any LGBTQ+ content, but not as fast. Just to clarify, I don’t have copyright musice (that doesn’t effect this limited state, it’s more if you’re video is advertiser friendly)

Youtube doesn’t want “controversial” videos. And for some reason that also includes LGBTQ+ content. I understand an AI isn’t going to learn that right away, but this system has been flagging LGBTQ+ content ever since it started back around in April. Which means whoever made the AI system place keywords to look for. And placed LGBTQ+ words at a default…. AI change over time, but they need a default to go off of first. 

Worst part? Youtube hasn’t fixed it yet. They’re saying if you say/use the words “lesbian” or “gay” it’s like a porn term. It’s not. These are terms for people, REAL PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF

And when people say “stop saying it’s only about the gay community it happens to everyone on the site” I fucking know that because it’s effecting my entire channel, along with my friends who do Youtube, and people who I watch on this site. I’m making this a big deal because it should be, and if Youtube fixes it because of this then it will fix the entire thing for EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN FALSELY FLAGGED.

no offense but the discourse has literally nothing to do with whether or not aces/aros are oppressed, because that’s not what decides whether or not someone qualifies as lgbtpn.

it’s literally just a matter of whether or not you experience transphobia, homophobia, or a subset of either. if you do not, it’s literally that simple, you are not lgbtpn. at all.

because it’s not like just facing any discrimination for your experience with sexuality makes you lgbtpn, otherwise people like cishet kinksters or furries might qualify for the lgbtpn community which is just….. bad.

The whole “the left is being driven by hate” narrative is yet another part of the right to appropriate the language of the left without the contextual understanding that gives it meaning. When faced with the issue of denying LGBT+ people rights the conservatives respond with “but what about the RIGHTS of the child?” When faced with the undeniable discrimination against LGBT+ people the right responds with “why are you DISCRIMINATING against our beliefs?” Now, when faced with the undeniable fact that voting no against marriage equality is in itself an act of hatred they’re shifting the onus back off themselves and go “why is the left so full of HATE?” when it is clearly a morally justified response the oppressive, dehumanisation, and demeaning attitudes and laws that have focused on hurting LGBT+ people. The right continues to take the language of social progressives and then make them hollow ironic statements, unaware of the utter meaninglessness that they have when reversed.

Until adolescence, I was very complexed by my size. I was often the smallest in my class, in other words almost always. I saw the other girls become women and I, keeping the body of a child.
I wanted to grow up, have nice curves, but Mother Nature wasn’t of the same opinion. So I abandoned, believing one day that the society shows us : a beautiful woman boils down to being tall and thin.
I don’t understand why this discrimination. It was as if women less than 1m70 could be lovely. Say I’m 1m55, it’s limit ridiculous.
And then one day I looked at my mother, who is smaller than me, she has faced many remarks about it. I saw her smile, happy and above all proud of her.
If was my click, for me, it was more radiant than all these models without expression. She exuded charm, happiness and femininity.
My mother is my opposite : coquette, with humor, gifted in many areas and without exception. Next, I felt even more tiny it.
Wonderful women of smaller sizes, it exists everywhere. We’re not talking Eva Longoria, Karrueche Tran, Hayden Panettiere and Lea Michele, we’re talking about people like you and me. ———By tit3.viet

Quick Note on Fandom Etiquette re: Events

As the person who has taken it upon myself to track fandom events I consider myself pretty close to the action when it comes to these things, and I want to comment on something I have now seen happen 3 times for 3 different event weeks.

It happens like this:

  • Group A want to run a theme week, let’s say the theme is “potato”
  • Group A make their event blog and start making promo posts about “potato”
  • As the “potato” event gets spread around and more people see it, some people notice a thing in the rules list for “potato,” it says No X content
    • (The X here could be anything, but lbr we all know what this is about)
  • People get upset that X is excluded from the “potato” event, they say “why is Group A discriminating against an entire subset of the fandom, events like this should be inclusive of everyone!”
  • Group B then take it upon themselves to make a new “potato” event, one that doesn’t exclude X content and is open to everyone

That last point in itself is not a problem, the problem is in how it’s often presented

Look, I understand and respect the frustration of finding a cool-looking event only to realize you’re barred from participating just because you like X content, and I understand and respect the desire to make a new event for yourself and others who share your love of X content. But I also understand and respect people who are uncomfortable with X content, and their right to create events for themselves and others like them, that cater to their tastes.

If I may offer my opinion: by all means, absolutely go ahead and make the new event the way you’d like it! But in the interest of keeping the fandom peace, such as it is, please consider:

  • Choose a different week to run your event (don’t piggyback on the original event’s dates)
  • Make new prompts (don’t steal the original event’s prompts)
  • Use a different hashtag (like that content for the two events doesn’t get mixed up)
  • Don’t jab at/make fun of the original event, let them do their thing in peace and focus instead on promo-ing your event!

I love the Voltron fandom, I love how active and creative we are! I love that I’m constantly finding new events to add to this blog! But I wanted to address this because it’s been bothering me. I’ve seen it happen for 3 events and it’s done nothing but create animosity, resentment and hurt.

Please be kind and happy event-ing fandom!

When I say that I’m Catholic, people think that I am homophobic and I hate gay people.

Well, this has to stop. Not all Catholics are homophobics and not all homophobics are Catholics! 

I’m not discriminating anyone, so why do people discriminate me?

So, all I want to say is that most of the Catholics I know are not homophobic at all, so please stop it.

I have a gay friend, I’m a geek and I ship destiel, malec, solangelo, mattxmello, lxlight, jack harkness and everyone. Do I seem homophobic to you?

PLEASE DON’T JUDGE WITHOUT KNOWING.

spookyfoxxblog  asked:

Listen, as a lawyer of over 20 years, I've met all types. You are a teen and say you are a witch. You post a bunch of dribble that you copy and paste from other sites. In short, you are fake news, slut. Sorry, but I could tell after 5 minutes of reading your posts. Get a life, cunt, will you? Time to come out of your closet. So easy to pretend on the net you are something you're not.

Okay first witchcraft is not fake and I am a witch because I practise witchcraft, and witchcraft is not like the movies portray it, you don’t just wave a wand and things move that’s a bunch of crap. Secondly, you are just a closed minded person and are part of the problem why witches still get discriminated against, you may think it’s different but witch discrimination is just as bad as something like homophobia. And a lot of my posts come from my book of shadows actually, a personal book filled with my personal thoughts and ideas. And who do you think you are calling a young teen like me a “slut” what does being a witch having anything to do with being someone who has excessive amounts of sex. I usually private my question but I’m leaving this one public so people can see what rotten people like you live in this world.
