Star Trek, Sherlock, The Hobbit, and a menagerie of other things that seem somewhat relevant to me.

capricorns would look so weird. like, “hey, do you like my goat horns? they go perfectly with my fucking mermaid tail.”

BUT ALL VIRGOS WOULD JUST BE LIKE PRETTY GIRLS WITH WINGS YES THIS IS GREAT

A muggle-born’s sibling sends them a howler in the middle of the school year and it arrives while they eat. When they open it, all it does is simply scream “WHAT TEAM?”. Nearly all the muggle-borns shout “WILDCATS!” before returning to their meal, leaving the pure-bloods in total confusion of what the hell they just witnessed.

I accept and fully support this headcanon

they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it. 
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck


badass.

We revere the “Renaissance Era: 89-99" of Walt Disney Animation Studios and we’ve dubbed their recent successes “The Golden Age 10-present" but I’m here today to show you what I dub "The Experimental Era 99-09" of the studios. Each on of these violently critiqued and often looked-over films is a charm in its own right and I’m here to tell you why.

1999 - Fantasia 2000 - Fitting enough it starts with a sequel to one of the most experimental animations of all time, Fantasia. This beautiful little continuation is just as charming and unique as the original. If not for the general rejection from audiences a third film had been planned.

2000 - Dinosaur - Experiments with overlaying computer generation with live-action backgrounds. Though often critiqued for its similarity to The Land Before Time (because it was dinosaurs??) 

2000 - The Emperor’s New Groove - On top of Dinosaur Disney released a second film, which was one of the first “cartoony” Disney films that focussed on a lot of traditional comic antics but beyond that it created a humorous film about class and understanding.

2001 - Atlantis: The Lost Empire - A film that often felt more aimed at adults than children featured a cast of diverse and interesting characters, including a Russian florist/bomber, a Latina mechanic, a black doctor, an Atlantean princess and several elderly characters that band together for the great of good and to save a dying kingdom from gold diggers.

2002 - Lilo & Stitch - One of the most unique animated Disney films to date, as it showcased the art style of artist Chris Sanders rather than sticking to the “Disney look,” along with beautiful watercolor backgrounds. The comedy was on point as well as an incredibly deep plotline about family and finding where you belong. One of the realest Disney films to date with its inclusion of social services, family death and over-all realistic portrayals of humans and family as well as the lead being a 7-year-old Hawaiian girl put this film as a turning point in the Disney Animation Studios.

2002 - Treasure Planet - The second film of 2002 focussed heavily in the concept of teenage angst and growing up. This film joins Atlantis in Disney’s attempts to create song-less animated Adventure stories.

2003 - Brother Bear - The second Disney film since Pocahontas to find its basis in Native American culture as well as the second since Tarzan to feature songs by Phil Collins. Breathtaking visuals and strong concepts of family and seeing things from someone else’s perspective make this film just as good as the two Renaissance Era it holds similarities with.

2004Home on the Range - Not one of Disney’s finest but unique in its plot line being focussed on three female cows and an array of farm animals. Cute and not as bad as its been made-out to be.

2005 - Chicken Little - Their first fully computer-generated film as well as the first to use Disney Digital 3D. It’s cute in its own right but definitely an attempt at getting the hang of CG outside of Pixar. Without Chicken Little we might not have Frozen.

2007 - Meet the Robinsons - The story of an orphaned boy who learns the best thing in life is to “keep moving forward.” Much of the film is based on retro Disney “Tomorrowland” ideas. It’s filled with uniquely designed characters and inspirational messages and is definitely the first CG Disney film to stand out.

2008 - Bolt - The third fully CG film from Disney. Adorable and funny as it follows the stories of three pets, uncovers topics of abandonment and identity crisis’ on a level that children can understand.

2009 - The Princess and the Frog - We close the Disney Experimental Era with the beauty that is The Princess and the Frog. Harkening back to such classic films as Cinderella with as much beauty and grace as Sleeping Beauty, this visual treat is one of Disney’s finest. Beyond that it features a unique soundtrack unlike anything featured in prior Disney musicals, incredibly detailed backgrounds, costume design and an amazing lead character. Not only is Princess Tiana the first Black princess but she is also one of the most realistically written with a dream and a will to make it happen.

And that’s the Walt Disney Animation Studios “Experimental Era.” It deserves far more respect than its been given.

If you have suffered a tragedy and someone says, “you’re in my prayers” with sincerity, and you respond with some egotistical shit about being atheist you are an emotionally inept moron.

For real though like think about it. If someone is religious, there’s really no kinder sentiment they can express than appealing to the highest power they know for your recovery. Whether or not you think it “works” is irrelevant— the kindness is absolutely real.

The US Government: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of

The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day

The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem

The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free

The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education

The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people

The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job

The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day

Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.
