I know we could all go  “Hell, yeah! You go girl!”, but it’s actually a rather sad story.

She was only intending to kill the husband. But she messed up pretty bad (traumatized teenage girls tend not to be criminal geniuses) and ending up killing way more people than was ever intended. Horrible situation for all involved. 

The point is: She should not have been put in that situation in the first place.

Can we realise she killed people and is not in the right arranged marriage is horrible and all but you could run away or contact authorities and be put into protection this act of murder is vile

You don’t know much about how women are treated in Pakistan, do you? The law doesn’t protect them.

She begged for a divorce. She tried to escape at least once. Her parents forced her to go back.

Murder is not right. But you can’t drive a vulnerable young woman completely crazy then be shocked when she lashes out.

^^^^

lolololol how naive do you have to be to think a teenage girl’s first solution to not wanting to get married would be murder and not think that she at least considered other ways out? dumbass

Gender roles in a nutshell: the Beauxbatons and Durmstrang entrances in The Goblet of Fire.

also, to my knowledge neither of those schools were sex-segregated in the books

That bothered me more than the Dumbledore yelling, actually.

Nicolas Flamel was an alum of Beauxbatons.

The first headteacher of Durmstrang was a witch.

Bam.

In the books, it even says that there were boys and girls from each school. Thanks Hollywood for making Durmstrang buff and all athletic men and Beauxbatons all feminine and dainty.

Just imagine what it would have meant for every kid watching, seeing girls walking beside the guys in Durmstrang being “manly” and boys walking with Beuxbaton being flirty and feminine.

It would have shown that girls and boys can be however they want.

It also suggested that the only way a female could have be selected to participate was if she was not up against any male competition. In the books Fleur is chosen as the best candidate for her school from a selection of female AND male students. And she was the best PERSON. Not the best GIRL.

all men are Russian and all Women are French.

Select your gender: 🔳 Russian
🔳 French

Durmstrang isn’t Russian, it’s Scandanavian.

Wasn’t Viktor Krum Bulgarian though?

durmstrang takes students from northern europe, eastern europe, and the balkans. it is located in either norway, russia, or sweden. 

beauxbatons takes students from western, central, and southern europe. it is located in france.

hogwarts takes students from the british isles, including ireland. it is located in scotland.

Honestly the closer we get to 2018 the less chill I am about the whole thing. 2018 sounds like we’re living in a fucking sci fi novel. It sounds completely fake. And then it’s on to 2020s like????? That’s completely impossible and I don’t believe you.

any time I see a weird hole or a mud pit or a ramshackle old hut in the woods I point at it and say “that’s my house” and after a couple of years of this at college my classmates would say “man you have a lot of houses” so I had to figure out a way to fix this consistency error so things became “my vacation home” or “my place before I really got on my feet” or “#house goals [a rotting log with a hole in it]”

but one day I said this in a new class with a new professor and none of them had heard it before and they were like, weirdly into the concept unlike most classes who’d just accept it and move on.

I claimed a slimy hole in a cave wall as my home, and my classmates started asking about it. How far could I take it, I wondered. How much descriptive imagery was too much and I’d lose them?

“Yeah,” I said. “I squirm out of that every day, encased in mucus, and greet the sun.” I made faces, did a squirming motion.

My classmates nodded. They approved of my home and of my mucus encasement.

I was riveted.

someone commented on this telling me “riveted means fascinated.”

Yes? Are you correcting me? Did you think I didn’t mean riveted?

I didn’t go thousands of dollars into debt on an unfinished English major just to have someone correct me on how I felt when my classmates wanted to know more about my mucus encasement thank u

When the promo shots of Confederate comes out, don’t reblog it

Don’t post it. Don’t screen shot it. Don’t retweet’s with angry emojis. Nothing. Nada. Don’t give them any free press. Don’t fuel the media outrage that they will use to get viewers. don’t tune in and don’t watch it “just to see”. Give them nothing and let it flop so HBO knows not to do that shit again. Give them NOTHING

do kids these days know about grace kelly by mika

WHAT. IS. THIS. SORCERY.

1. i can’t believe there are people in the world who haven’t heard this

2. go check out mika he’s great - important to note is that he’s mlm (he’s come out alternately as being gay, bisexual and ‘not interested in labels’ for a while) and a huge amount of his songs are about being mlm so in particular if ya need good mlm artists check him out

Seriously Mika is a gift and sunshine unto this sick sad world

mika is wildly popular in europe but his north american fanbase is like, six people and a napkin, and it’s killing me. 

ALSO, he came out as bisexual/‘not interested in labels’ like a decade ago, but much more recently he came out as gay, so he’s gay! his latest album, No Place In Heaven, is almost completely about being gay.
it’s got a song abt his sexuality and his religion, a song abt pining for your straight best friend, a song abt the music world that includes the lyrics “where have all the gay guys gone?”, a song abt gay and lesbian solidarity, a song abt heterosexual expectations from family, and two songs that are just abt being super ridiculously in love w your partner.

please listen to Mika’s entire discography because there are a LOT of classics that i’m 100% sure you’ve heard at some point in your life, all the love songs are implicitly gay, it’s great, but ESPECIALLY listen to No Place In Heaven (2015).

Adding to this, We Are Golden - an upbeat and beautiful track about being young - is an ABSOLUTE CLASSIC

Guys, Netflix will be taking down Leverage on November 2nd, so if you or people you know haven’t watched it yet, GO WATCH IT!


Seriously go watch Leverage. It’s awesome.


Leverage is the perfect inter-genre show that nobody knows exists - I saw it referenced in every single fandom I’ve been in for years before I gave it a try….simply because I’m not into ‘funny shows.’  I mean, a serious show that’s occasionally funny, fine.  But a show that gets laughs in almost every scene? How could that have enough weight to meet my weighty-show desires?

Boy was I wrong. 

I think Leverage appeals to so many different genre audiences because it manages to hit the ticky box on so many different qualities: 

writing - especially from S2 on - super tight plotting and scripting, with zingers of humor and poignance and pain in every scene

acting - both quality and massive variety

arcs - character arc, a balance of season-long arc, run-of-show-long arc; and fun one-offs that still hook in to the larger picture

it has a strong meta-narrative running on several different levels, from political commentary to poking fun at the conceits of the show itself.  The show is always thinking, even when it’s fun and funny.

It’s perfectly cast (who else could play Parker, I ask you) and they both enjoy the multi-character talents each actor can portray, and poke fun at the fact that their various level of grifter-talents aren’t going to stick the landing every time.  Having your actors act badly is a risk most shows don’t take :)

LEVERAGE - WATCH IT.  YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO MARATHON THE ENTIRE RUN OF THE SHOW IF YOU START NOW - GO GO!

concept: your significant other loves taking pictures of you when you’re not watching. a candid of you laughing so hard your eyes are closed. one of cooking breakfast wearing their oversized shirt. one of you curled up asleep on the couch. a picture of every reason they love you.

Once my friend Henry was accused of wearing wireless headphones by a substitute so she said for him to hand them over so he took them off and handed them to her. Then later on she asked him a question and he didn’t respond so she said it louder and he still didn’t respond. She asked why he was not responding and he said “I can’t understand you ma'am, you took my hearing aids.”

HOLY SHIT

one time we had a sub that was handing back papers and called my name. I asked if someone could grab it for me and she started mocking me for not even standing up. taunting me asking why I was not walking up to the front to get the paper myself.

my classmates went dead silent and after the sub’s laughter ended someone informed her that the wheelchair parked nearby belonged to me

My sister once had her insulin pump ripped off of her because her exam proctor (a sub) thought it was some cheating device.
He soon figured out that it was, in fact, not, when the port on her side (the place the needle goes in) started bleeding through her shirt. Her pump started beeping frantically, because that’s what it does, and it was general chaos until my sister ripped what’s basically her pancreas out of his hands, told her friend “Let the next proctor know I’ll need extra time,” and walked out of the room towards the nurse.

Literally schools are shit with disabilities. In elementary school I was having a high blood sugar reaction(cold sweats to rapid passing in and out of consciousness, vomiting and finally leading to a massive seizure before you die) and I KNEW I had to go to the nurse cuz I was getting worse. Kept telling my teach I needed to go and he kept saying no till finally I felt myself about to throw up and I’m screaming LET ME GO (i was a little kid to me i couldnt do anything in an institution without an adults say so or id basically go to hell) and the bitch said SHUT YOUR DAMN MOUTH AND PAY ATTENTION TO THE LESSON where I proceeded to projectile vomit all over my desk and he jut kept going on with the lesson. Finally I just booked it out of the room but I was too far gone to even REMEMBER where the nurses office was let alone where the hell I was that my class literally just left and helped me to the nurses office. I immediately went to the hospital and officially died for 5 minutes before I was revived. I could have stayed dead all because some fuck twad thought his lesson was more important than a students life

After Columbine, a local school installed metal detectors and made everyone walk through them and put their bags on a table for a teacher to search. 

A few days into the school year, a teacher ripped a boy’s insulin pump off him because she thought it was a weapon, despite he and his sister insisting it was an insulin pump and he needed it to live. 

I don’t know how many of you are still in school but I have some valuable knowledge that might actually help with this problem! In the United States there’s this thing called a 504 Plan that you can get which basically gives you legal protection from disability/chronic illness discrimination in public schools. 

Students can qualify for 504 plans if they have physical or mental impairments that affect or limit any of their abilities to: walk, breathe, eat, or sleep; communicate, see, hear, or speak; read, concentrate, think, or learn; stand, bend, lift, or work

 Examples of accommodations in 504 plans include: preferential seating, extended time on tests and assignments, reduced homework or classwork, verbal, visual, or technology aids, modified textbooks or audio-video materials, behavior management support, adjusted class schedules or grading, verbal testing, excused lateness, absence, or missed classwork

 I’m a type one diabetic and my school nurse would do stuff like keep all my meds in a locked cabinet, not let me take my insulin or test my blood sugar unless she was watching me, and lie to my mother about me inducing low blood sugars in order to get out of class. She wouldn’t even let me keep glucagon (emergency sugar injection) on my person in case I passed out from low blood sugar. 

 So one day I casually mentioned all this to my endocrinologist and she was really mad. She was really angry at the school nurse for mistreating me like that and informed me of this thing called a 504 plan. A 504 plan protects students with disabilities and chronic illnesses from discrimination by outlining exactly what a student needs to meet their special needs. For me, this meant I had to be able to keep ahold of my own meds in case of emergency and keep track of my own glucose levels, that I would never be marked late for a class if I was busy treating a low, and I could pause the clock on a standardized test to check my blood sugar and treat it. If you have a disability and you’re still attending public school, PLEASE read up on 504 plans because they saved me so much grief when I was still in school. It might help you too. Here’s some more information about 504 plans:

Passing this along. I would not have made it this far without my disability documentation in school.
