straight from the ministry of magic, y’all.

when men dress up as women or white people wear hijabs or darken their skin in order to “see how hard it is,” they’re simply admitting that they believe those members of those groups are untrustworthy to the point that they can’t honestly relay the reality of their own experiences.
Uh… how can I explain this… Okay. Having cancer is hard. It’s painful, it’s stressful, people go through emotional and financial trauma as well as the physical illness… but you don’t understand that, you don’t truly understand that, unless you’ve had cancer
I also realize that often when people dress/act as a minority, they do it to share their experience with others. You may be referring to the fact that some people understand better when someone who does this explains it. It’s not because the person who did it is more trustworthy.. it’s because they did it from a point of view of someone who has never had to deal with these hardships and can explain better the differences between the two lifestyles, they can really impress upon others how shocked they were, how important these differences are… because, in a sense, they’ve experienced both.
TL;DR: no they’re not
Is it true that straight boys eat footballs for breakfast
yeah everyday, the leather makes them feel more secure about their inability to satisfy women
"men don’t ever face sexism."
wow gee i’m sorry that this joke reduced your pay and made you way more at risk of sexual assault because men face sexism
Don’t shame the girls who sent pictures of themselves half-naked to their significant others as a way to express eroticism which is healthy and natural… give the people hell who think it’s okay to destroy someone’s trust and distribute those images simply for entertainment purposes.
Say it again. I don’t think they got it the first time. Too much truth.
#can we talk about this #just for a second #can we talk about how this show took valuable time out of its short episodes to throw in little moments like this #moments that humanized ”the enemy” #and showed the war from a different perspective #and made the audience stop and realize the Fire Nation wasn’t inherently evil #like we were at first led to believe #*sighs* idk what i’m saying #I still get really really emotional about A:TLA (via equalistmako)

That awkward moment when Catwoman seductively purrs “I’ve been a bad kitty….” and you get a little rise out of the bat-pole from it…. Then you realize that the same actress did the voice for both of these characters.
once when i was little, i claimed it was a teacher’s work day so i wouldn’t have to go to school and mom’s not an idiot so of course it didn’t work, but when we got to the school, we found it was a teacher’s work day and that made me think i had super powers so i started trying to kill classmates with my mind to confirm the theory
You thought you had super powers so you immediately attempted to murder everyone

I’m horrified but not astonished.
Yeah if the researchers were astonished, that… says a lot about them.
I asked Siri if I’d ever get married and it consulted the magic conch
when i was 6 years old i was being babysat by some girls down the street and they were talking about their friend who got pregnant and I was like “what’s pregnant” and they were like “it means fat” so when i got in the car with my dad to go home i was like “dad, i’m pregnant” and he hit he breaks and looked at me so mortified for about 5 minutes and then said “rin you’re fucking six years old” and then kept driving
