Why are the ‘world wars’ called the ‘world’ wars when it was only a bunch a white countries beefing over who gets to control and fuck up the world the most? Why does everything white suddenly become the world?
the world wars were white
remember the white countries japan, china, egypt, libya, morocco, iraq, brazil, the phillipines, thailand, vietnam, burma and ethiopia in the world wars

i am so fucking sick of the term “illegal asylum seekers” because there is NO SUCH THING. it is NOT illegal to seek asylum. in fact, it is a human right and australia is signed onto the UN convention that states that it is LEGAL to seek asylum, no matter which mode of transportation you take. there is no australian law against asylum seekers. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ILLEGAL ASYLUM SEEKERS
[image description: a green banner reading “queer books for slytherin” is surrounded by six book covers of the titles listed below]
This is the third of four recommended reading lists of queer and queer-ish books, organized by Hogwarts houses! Check out previous posts on Gryffindor and Ravenclaw. AND ENJOY.
A Girl’s Guide to Taking Over the World: Writings from the Girl Zine Revolution edited by Karen Green and Tristan Taromino
While this collection of writings from zines of the early 90s riot grrl era and beyond may not be an actual blueprint for world domination, it is just as brash, smart and unapologetic as any Slytherin.
Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz
This story of an isolated teenager’s relationship with a monstrous fish-boy is supposed to be seriously grim. The darkness factor - and the fact that Pottermore tells us that the Slytherin common room windows gives students a view of the creatures the lake - is what makes it a great Slytherin pick.
The Complete Hothead Paisan: Homicidal Lesbian Terrorist by Diane DiMassa
Before some tumblr misandrists were even born, Hothead Paisan was collecting rapists’ spines. Queer Slytherins in need of some guilt-free revenge fantasy should pick this one up - though I implore you to read up on the author’s transmisogyny first.
Sula by Toni Morrison
While not explicitly queer, this story is held together by love between women. Slytherins will likely relate to Sula, a community pariah whose motivations are as incomprehensible to her friends and family as theirs are to her.
Sister Mischief by Laura Goode
Esme Rockett is probably a Gryffindor at heart (they tend to get the leading roles). But she and her friends - outsiders in their lily-white Christian community - employ all their cunning to wreck havoc for the establishment. Sex, drugs and hip-hop make this YA debut a conservative censor’s worst nightmare - or wet dream, maybe.
When You Are Engulfed In Flames by David Sedaris
This contemporary master of the personal essay always manages to come off as judgmental, selfish, petty, loveable and brilliant. Tapping into our dark spots to charm us, Sedaris is an exemplary Slytherin - and skull-centric cover art doesn’t hurt, either.
it takes ten seconds to tag something and forty five minutes to hours to calm down from a panic attack. think about that for a second
and totally feel comfortable enough to ask me to tag something that bothers you bc there are so many things that trigger people that i wouldn’t even think about and i’m sorry if i do that but let me know!
Please tell me if you need something tagged. Please please please. I will without any hesitation.
CATS HAVE LIMITED OBJECT PERMANENCE AND DON’T ALWAYS UNDERSTAND THAT TWO DIFFERENT DOORS CAN LEAD TO THE SAME ROOM
YUP, THAT’S WHY. CATS ARE BIG DUMMIES AND OFTEN SEE NO REASON WHY TWO DIFFERENT DOORS SHOULD LEAD TO THE SAME PLACE, SO THEY FIGURE THEY’LL CHECK IF IT’S ALSO RAINING IN THE OTHER OUTSIDE BEHIND THE OTHER DOOR.
WHEN THE PROPRIETOR OF THIS BLOG WAS A CHILD, THE KITCHEN LED INTO THE DINING ROOM, WHICH LED INTO THE LIVING ROOM, WHICH LEAD INTO THE FRONT HALLWAY, WHICH LED BACK INTO THE KITCHEN, SO WHEN THE CATS WERE HUNGRY, THEY WOULD CHECK THEIR BOWLS, SEE THAT THEY WERE EMPTY, AND WALK ALL THE WAY AROUND THE HOUSE TO SEE IF THE OTHER BOWLS IN THE OTHER KITCHEN WERE ALSO EMPTY.
why is everyone fucking screaming
FOR AN ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION, I ADVISE YOU TO LOOK AT THE TITLE OF THIS BLOG.
George R.R. Martin is ruthless - every death in the Game of Thrones series is tabbed
Wow. That is incredibly cool… and frightening. I wonder what my books would look like given that treatment. I often wonder if I’m gentler than George… in fact, to be honest I think of myself as such, but I also think that’s only because I know exactly how far I’ll go, and what I intend to do. George’s brain is terra incognita to all but George.
#My job isn’t to give you an anodyne #It’s to make you and me both feel deeply for what’s lost and broken #But also to leave us both with the hope that something survives #The notion that someone makes it and keeps punching toward daylight #I don’t kill my beloved characters because it makes me feel like some kind of literary necro-hipster #but because it makes me shake with grief in every bone of my body #that’s how I know there’s still good strong current in all these wires I set out for you to gnaw
