Yes, they’re just “wife” and “husband” with a racist accent.
This fucking teacher in my Native American lit class needs a solid punch to the face.
pugs are cute until you remember humans are breeding a type of dog that commonly suffers from a plethora of frequent and significant health issues and an inability to breathe properly and is basically just destined to a life of pain
It’d really be something if I got out of bed today.
Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2)
Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace
stop making fun of black women for wearing a weave

oh hell okay
i think the Issue with dumbledore being gay is that it wasn’t canonised in the text, which means: a) a crucial and important part of his backstory is glossed over and, b) considering how crucial and important this piece of backstory is, it’s clear that jkr tried her hardest to make sure it wasn’t canonised in the text. because it’s REALLY IMPORTANT AND RELEVANT and was discussed fleetingly, using the broadest possible terms — it’s glaringly obvious that jkr was trying not to make it Too Gay
like, albus’ feelings for grindelwald impacted his life MASSIVELY, and even eighty(???) years later they were still affecting him. dumbledore’s ~mysterious backstory~ IS gellert grindelwald. everything boils down to his relationship with grindelwald, it influenced everything in his life, from his constant refusals to become minister for magic to his choice to never marry/have a relationship with anyone and instead dedicate himself solely to hogwarts and his students. the only reason he knows about the hallows is because of grindelwald, HE WON THE ELDER WAND FROM HIM??? he NEVER trusted himself with power again and it’s all because of his relationship with grindelwald. it was dumbledore’s MAIN CHARACTER MOTIVATION THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE SERIES
and we got aaall of dumbledore’s backstory in deathly hallows — we got the whole story about his family and his siblings and his dodgy dad and gellert grindelwald. all the gory details, except the fact that albus was in love with gellert. (and are we really supposed to believe that rita skeeter would either miss a scoop like that, or find it out and decide to sit on it?? hell nah) and like??? he says grindelwald’s ideas “inflamed me” and describes the summer they were together as “two months of insanity” that… sounds…….. like he was pretty fucking smitten
plus it really says a lot about dumbledore, like he wasn’t just following his mate for a bit of power, he was IN LOVE and blinded by it. he literally says “did i know, in my heart of hearts, what gellert grindelwald was? i think i did, but i closed my eyes”??? he was completely blinded by love and subsequently never let his personal feelings get in the way of The Goal/Doing The Right Thing ever again (case in point: his fucking awful treatment/manipulation of harry)
but i mean dumbledore’s literally CRYING IN THE AFTERLIFE while talking about gellert grindelwald. he fucked dumbledore up THAT BADLY
and harry obviously picks up on this because he’s like “well grindelwald lied to voldemort and said he’d never had the elder wand, so” and dumbledore’s like “yeah cos he was ashamed of what he’d done and trying to make amends” and harry’s like “nah he was trying to stop him from breaking into your tomb” and dumbledore’s all sniffly and sad about it. we only really get shit from dumbledore’s perspective but….. grindelwald died to protect dumbledore’s tomb……
and it just BLOWS MY MIND that this relationship, which FORMED A PRINCIPLE CHARACTER and is the CORNERSTONE OF HIS BACKSTORY can just be glossed over with typical british stiff-upper-lipness when it’s just as relevant (IF NOT MORE RELEVANT) as the fucking snape and lily fiasco, which was laid on SO THICK in the text and lauded as a ~love story~
dumbledore’s love for grindelwald and his queerness are both VITAL parts of his backstory AND OF THE STORY AS A WHOLE and it’s a fucking crime that jkr decided (because it was a DECISION, and a major failing on her part) to omit it
