Women should NOT be forced to feed their babies in a bathroom, all because we live in a misogynistic, porn-warped society that’s been brainwashed to believe that female breasts used for anything other than male pleasure is “indecent”. Support public breast feeding and end the porn culture.
policing of women’s bodies must stop
People need to feed their fucking spawn. Just get over yourselves.
Oh yeah. I’m glad someone is pointing out that time feminists violently took over governments, sent young people to their deaths en masse over lies, attempted to wipe out a race of people, started a business selling men as sex slaves, physically tortured men who were sexually deviant, denied men equal pay, advocated for plutocracies, used sexual assault as a tactic of war.
I’m SO glad someone finally found the courage to point that out.
Here’s where Tumblr’s going to be at San Diego Comic-Con this week:
- The MTV Fan Fest party on Thursday at 7 p.m.
- The official orphanblack #CloneClub Meetup on Friday at 1 p.m.
Pacific time, obviously. Surf’s up.
Before that happens, though, some classic fandoms are duking it out on Tumblr for the B.F.F. Award at the mtvU Fandom Awards. It’ll decide which group of people, all of whom like the same thing, collectively like their thing the most. Voting ends tonight, so this is completely your last chance ever to show how much you like the thing you like.
See you in San Diego!
Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.
I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.
She is so amazing. Just stops, surveys the obstacle in front of her, and goes for it.
Best part of this vid is the amount of high-pitched “whats” that came from the commentators.
* 1 part reckless abuse of the environment
* 1 part misplaced priorities
* 1 part anti-science
* 1 part violence
* 1 part denial
Mix and wait.
Enjoy your total destruction.

I absolutely agree that she is a Gryffindor by choice, which is the only thing that should matter in the end.
This post is mainly addressing the common belief that she PROBABLY would’ve been a Ravenclaw if she’d not chosen Gryffindor.
Why do people so often downplay Hermione’s Hufflepuff-ness? Let’s break it down.
She is very knowledgeable and intelligent, yes. Both are typical Ravenclaw traits. But as the novels prove time and time again, her achievements and capabilities are the products of hard work rather than simply being “gifted.” She works damn hard to come up with solutions for problems. How did she, as an eleven year old Muggle-born know even more about the magical world than Ron? She read up on it, because she knew that she was at a disadvantage compared to many of the other children. How’d she find out about the Basilisk? By hitting the books. She disagreed with Harry about using the HBP’s book for an unfair advantage. You can go on about her work ethic outside of her thirst for knowledge. One can also posit that she saved them all so many times by simply being prepared.
Secondly, she is a very compassionate person. Refer to SPEW. If you look specifically at the 7th movie, her reaction to seeing the dragon under Gringotts was strong disgust. In the end, Hermione put her money where her mouth is. She lays the smackdown on Draco for cracking wise about a grieving Hagrid. Hermione is NOT a violent person, so that strong reaction was borne of her empathy for Hagrid. She also provides Harry with deep emotional support over the course of the novels, never once abandoning him for his mistakes or lack of answers. This leads me to the the last trait.
She is unwaveringly dedicated to doing the right thing. She is unselfish. She puts the cause above herself. She puts the safety of others above herself—obliviating her parents for their own safety and going forth alone to fight with her friends. She stayed on the course with Harry, putting aside her romantic relationship with Ron and braving his ire. She is the one who constantly calls out Harry Potter for his foolhardy decisions. She places the greater good above personal desires, but she is also extremely loyal to those who deserve it. Hermione’s decision-making process: She doesn’t do the courageous thing. She does the right thing.
All of the above are often overlooked in order for people to assign Hermione to the “Ravenclaw who chose Gryffindor” box. Perhaps this conclusion makes sense on the surface because we like to celebrate natural talent over hard work. So our beloved Hermione is associated with the House known for preternatural intelligence. This is also fueled somewhat by her initial appearances in the book. She was painted as obnoxiously smart. Really though, why would she not answer all the questions and outdo Ron and Harry when she’s worked harder than them to earn that knowledge? As the story carried on, Hermione also grew into a much more humbled character, possibly due to the fact that she no longer felt the need to prove herself to her peers.
In the end, it is really her kindness and maturity that has endeared us to her.
So here’s to Hermione’s inner Hufflepuff. You just keep feeding that badger, girl.
