my school put me in charge of the posters for LGBTQ acceptance and i kind of just
great job, you just alienated every LGBTQ kid in your school who doesn’t give a crap about your shitty fandoms just so you could make a fucking tumblr post
hope you feel proud of yourself for indulging in your fandom rather than actually making posters that everyone rather than a select few people will actually understand!
No. Stop. Stop insulting someone’s efforts to aid the LGBTQ community. Shut your fucking mouth and think for a minute.
When I was in high school, I was the president of our Gay-Straight Alliance. We tried everything to get new members and to gain support for years, but even in my senior year, we were still referred to “the gay club” and received no support from the school whatsoever.
To run a school club, you need support.
Harry Potter happens to be an extremely popular series. Pitch Perfect as well. Every time my club advertised, we would try to include everyone, suggesting that people visit, maybe even once. But by using popular media like that, you not only emphasize your point in a way people will enjoy, you do it in a way people will understand.
In no way is this a form of alienation. Not at all. You’re not saying “If you don’t like this fandom, you can’t join our club.”
FOR THE LOVE OF CHEESE, THEY’RE SAYING “DON’T BE AN ASSHAT BY NOT ACCEPTING PEOPLE WHO ARE DIFFERENT.”
So please, refrain from demonizing someone who was doing all they can to support the LGBTQ community.
okay i think we all can agree that reverse racism isn’t a thing but reverse discrimination does happen and it shouldn’t be excused any more than ‘regular’ discrimination
And this is brilliant. Because it demonstrates that racism isn’t only present in clearly malicious and evil people, in the Malfoys and Blacks - it’s also there in warm, kind, funny people who just happened to learn some pretty toxic things growing up in a pretty toxic society. And they can unlearn them too, with some time and effort. Ron eventually accepts Hagrid’s parentage, lets Lupin bandage his leg and in the final battle, he worries about the safety of the house elves.
Some people are prejudiced because they are evil, and some people are prejudiced because they don’t know better yet. And those people can learn better, and become better people. And that’s an important lesson. The lesson taught about discrimination shouldn’t be “only evil people do it”, because then all readers will assume it doesn’t apply to them. Instead old JK teaches us “you too are probably doing it, and you should do stop ASAP”.
ARE WE NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT HOW FUCKING AWESOME THIS IS
"maybe if i ignore my assignments they will magically go away" a college story“they didn’t” the riveting sequel
"i have 24 hours until i submit and i have done jack shit" the nail-biting conclusion to the trilogy
"i have 12 hours til it’s due but all i have is a heading (and i’m still on tumblr)" the reboot
