Men, I would like to give this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too. To date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either. We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are. We can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle so their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so, be a more true and complete version of themselves - Emma Watson for HeForShe UN campaign

Actors have this amazing skill. We bond quite quickly but equally, we move on quite quickly. There’s nothing particularly cold or capricious about it. We’re troubadours and lead a troubadour’s lifestyle.

How in the world is harry considered a mixed race?

milominderbindered:

In the films, he’s not. But in the books, his race is never explicitly stated. We know that he has his father’s messy black hair, and we know that is mother is a pale redhead and he has her green eyes. It’s entirely plausible that James could have been black (or another race that isn’t white) and therefore Harry would be mixed race.  A lot of people - including me - really love this idea.

here are some really good posts about it:

1, 2, 3

and this quote from this article:

Vondell has most recently channeled his search for representation and identity into illustrations of Harry Potter, from the unique lens of Harry Potter as a black, mixed-race kid. “I’ve been rereading Harry Potter and I realized that his race in the books was never defined. It was never defined except to say that he has startling green eyes and jet-black uncontrollable hair. And to me, what I read into that was that he’s a mixed kid.”

The illustrations proved popular, striking a chord both inside and outside his social media audience, prompting a host of responses. “It took off because so many people were like, ‘Oh my God, Harry Potter could easily be a black, mixed-race hero story.’ I’ve heard from so many people like, ‘I’ve been wanting this.’ It’s really interesting to hear from people of color, particularly black, mixed-race people like me saying, ‘I’ve never had this.’ That’s something that really struck me, because I realized I didn’t have that either. There are so few hero stories with centralized black characters.”

How is ''female queerness constantly undermined and invalidated by men''

thetalkingguineapig:

”she’s just experimenting” ”it’s a phase” ”she’s confused” ”can I watch?” ”can I join?” ”you’re a lesbian? that’s hot” *continues to hit on you*  ”you’re bi? wanna threesome?” ”lesbian sex doesn’t count” ”girls only do it for boys attention” ”she just needs to find the right man” ”I can change your mind” ”if you use dildos that means you really just want dick”
