“And it upsets me that as I record this video #wewillalwayssupportyoujustin is trending on twitter. I wish all the people who were tweeting that right now would be forced to send a tweet to explain to Katie’s family in 140 characters or less why they would quote always support someone who would do something as fundamentally selfish as driving drunk.”

and in that moment, the entire movie theater burst into tears
i think this was the moment that made most of us despise umbridge more than voldemort
most of us?! don’t you mean ALL of us?? I don’t think even Voldemort liked this bitch!
No one likes Umbridge.
I heard, one time, a dementor kissed her and IT died
Voldemort committed genocide, but Umbridge dared to be female while she abused her power.
The point isn’t that Umbridge was worse than Voldemort; it’s that everyone hates her more. And I think it has nothing to do with her being a woman and everything with being the sort of cruel most of us have actually experienced.
I mean, look at Voldemort. He’s basically Wizard Hitler, which is, obviously, an incredibly terrible thing to be. But most people—especially the younger people in Harry Potter’s target audience—have not had their parents murdered by a xenophobic cult leader. Nor have they fought for their lives against giant snakes, been kidnapped for dark rituals, or watched numerous friends die in front of them. Voldemort’s crimes are numerous, but they’re distant and fantastical, like hearing about a serial killer on the news.
But they have had that one teacher who inflicts extra punishments just because they don’t like you. They’ve complained to parents and authorities only to be ignored. They’ve sat through pointless classes and been silenced when they criticize. Umbridge is that teacher we all hated because she made our lives miserable and we were powerless to stop her. And as we grow out of school, there are still people in positions of power who act like her. The manager who denies your schedule requests and penalizes you for invented infractions. That customer who complains to corporate because their scam didn’t work, and the corporate decision to listen to their story. Cops performing illegal searches because they know you don’t have any proof.
Yes, torturing and killing numerous people is worse than terrorizing a handful of schoolchildren, but Voldemort is the bad guy in a fairy tale. Umbridge is personal.
*drops the mic*
Voldemort is the villain we never hope to face.
Umbridge is the villain we face every day.
It’s the banality of Umbridge’s evil that does it for me. She’s the evil of absolute order, sadism that masks itself behind doilies and cute kitten pictures. She’s the purity of institutional power, absolutely pristine and spotless because her pink furniture and lace cover up the blood she’s spilled—the blood she sees as necessary to the preservation of order and her power.
And, y’know, I always knew Harry would defeat Voldemort. Probably at some kind of cost because Hero Narrative, but that’s how these stories work.
I was not entirely certain that Umbridge wouldn’t win.
We knew what Voldemort was, and he never hid what it was, he showed off proudly. But Umbridge, she was the one the hid her intentions, she pretended to be nice, when all along she was the snake in the garden. That’s what’s scary, and that’s why he hated her more, it’s because she hid her true intentions.
the catholic church gives wine to 7 year olds but gay marriage is wrongI mean this is totally out of context but is technically true. It is believed to be the blood of god and they are only given 1 tiny sip once a week but otherwise this is totally correct.
the catholic church encourages 7 year olds to drink blood every week but gay marriage is wrong
Laughed so hard.
why couldn’t i be born with an older brother who is my best friend and has hot friends that flirt with me and drives me places like mcdonalds when im sad and punches rude boys in the face for me.
My brother once sat on me and farted until I passed out
my brother duct taped me to a treadmill and turned it to the highest setting once
My eldest brother moved out a little before I was born, and I didn’t meet him till I was 11, and he was kind of a douche until I was about 16. (Thought I’d add to the awkward.)
“Oh, you’re straight? So is spaghetti until it gets hot. ;)”
Are you suggesting we boil heterosexuals
I laughed too hard at this.
Hear “Let It Go,” the Academy Award nominee for Best Original Song, in 25 different languages and see how fans in other countries have experienced Elsa unleashing her powers.
I don’t think I’ve ever since a CGI movie in a different language. I mean I used to watch French Disney movies in French class, but those were classics, so you could get away with the poor lip reading. But this was different, but for the most part they were able to pull together words to match the lips.
It was also delightful to hear the different languages of the song.
The difference between dogs and cats teaching their young about stairs x
oh my god
I felt that that was what was going to happen, but still too funny!
Like how he’s all.
"Kevin isn’t your fault Sam don’t worry about it. Get your ass in gear, son-"
And this week he’s all.
"Dean you hate yourself more than anyone else trust me."
And it’s just like
Therapeutic King of Hell is the best Dr. Phil the Winchesters ever had.
There was a four year old named Hermione at my work today. It’s started.
it has begun
The Potter generation is growing up.
AND GETTIN’ BIZAY
girls who can run in heels should be feared
Not only run in heels, but run up stairs made of ice in heels.
Do you see that? She’s also skipping steps.
She is running in heels made of ice up stairs made of ice and skipping steps.
ELSA IS A FUCKING FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.
AND IN A DRESS TOO
WANT THEM ALLLL OMFG
I love that Sally was included.
You know how people buy drinks for girls in bars? Why can’t people do that in book stores? Like if I’m looking at a novel in Barnes and Noble and some person walks up to me and strikes up a conversation and offers to buy the book for me there is a lot better chance of that working out in their favor
I’m going to reblog this until it’s a cultural norm.
Lets do it
plus less chance of drugs being slipped into your book
Not sure where you live, but where I live one book is a hell of a lot more expensive than one drink.
True books cost more, but there is a higher chance of a one night stand, or an actually relationship coming out of it.
Urban legend states that if you say supernatural 3 times the fandom will appear with a totally relevant gif.
