What you don’t seem to realized is that there are many different levels of intelligence. Wasn’t Luna the one that found a way to get to the ministry? Wasn’t Luna the one to always comfort Harry- the one who understood him in ways that no one else could? You don’t have to have Book smarts to be considered smart. It’s clear that Luna has very high levels of interpersonal intelligence. To be honest I don’t even know where this is coming from- we never see her in a classroom, we don’t see her grades- wtf are you talking about? Because she believes in things other people don’t?  Do we have proof that those things don’t exist!? This was one of the most important themes in the book- Voldemort, the chamber of secrets, the room of requirement, horcruxes, Ravenclaw’s diadem, THE DEATHLY HALLOWS….. people didn’t believe they existed but eventually they were proven wrong. So why should Luna be considered stupid just because she chooses to believe!? And I can’t… because she doesn’t try to make friends!? Really? Fucking REALLY!? WHY would you try to be friends with people who treat you like crap? Who bully you and call you names just because you’re different? No one needs friends like that. And Luna didn’t need people like that in her life and she knew that. Didn’t she eventually find the friends that she deserved? The ones that accepted her quirks and differences and didn’t try and make her change? Frankly, I’m ashamed of you. You’re showing levels of narrow-minded ignorance a Ravenclaw shouldn’t possess.

Fuck, being a Ravenclaw does NOT mean being academically brilliant and overly logical and having a stick up your ass. It means being open to new ideas and alternatives and being willing to think outside of the box; it means accepting that you do not know everything but nonetheless choosing to follow your own path and learn for the sake of learning. It means not judging others for their eccentricities because there are so many different types of intelligence. While it makes logical sense that Ravenclaws would be good at academics and smart, being smart has multiple facets. Two brilliant people could disagree with one another on everything just because their modes of thought and the way they process information is completely different. Luna was different, and the way she processed reality may seem funny, but that doesn’t detract from the fact that she passionately searched for information about things she was interested in, even if that thing is a crumple horned snorkack. Being a Ravenclaw means accepting the world for being a strange and marvelous as it is, and seizing it to learn all of its intricacies. Luna is more a Ravenclaw than you will ever be.

Can we also bring up the fact that one of the magical creatures she “made up” was found to be true, but only certain people could see it so they thought she was insane?
If the thestral was real, who’s to say the other things weren’t?

I knew when the answer opened with those gifs that someone was going to get schooled.

Are we never going to talk about how the “password” to the Ravenclaw tower is a RIDDLE?
A Ravenclaw who is strictly logical will LITERALLY BE UNABLE TO GET TO THEIR DORM. A Ravenclaw who has book-smarts and cannot think outside the box and take the weird answer WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE A RAVENCLAW. “Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?” “Where do Vanished objects go?”
TO BE A RAVENCLAW YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THE ANSWER THAT ISN’T GIVEN, TO TAKE THE WEIRD OPTION AND FLIGHT OF FANCY AND MAKE SENSE OF IT. BECAUSE THAT’S THE KIND OF RIDDLE RAVENCLAWS LIVE ON. THE KIND OF RIDDLE THAT ACTS AS A KEY TO GET INTO THEIR DAMN DORM.
AND WHAT’S MORE, YOU KNOW WHO WAS THE SHITTIEST TO LUNA, AS FAR AS WE CAN TELL FROM THE BOOKS? OTHER. RAVENCLAWS. RAVENCLAWS ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO COULD HAVE GOTTEN INTO HER DORM AND TAKE THINGS. RAVENCLAWS HAD TO HAVE A BIG FUCKING HAND IN TORMENTING LUNA. WHY THE FUCK SHOULD SHE MAKE FRIENDS WITH THOSE PEOPLE?

this post is so great because it demonstrates exactly how luna got bullied for being different and also how she got a badass posse of friends to save the goddamn world with

    So many men have internalized the lie that they have uncontrollable sex drives, and no way to control their anger. They aren’t ashamed of their abusive behavior because they see it as a something natural to them and maybe even central to their masculinity. It’s scary as hell.

Hey! This is a post I’ve really dreaded making, and I feel kind of really awful for doing so. But I’ve basically exhausted all other options, and decided that since it’s gotten a bit of attention, I may as well make a post about it.

Why do you need money?

As someone who’s been pretty much on their own since around sixteen in an attempt to leave an extremely toxic environment, things haven’t been easy in quite a while. Though I’m incredibly lucky to have a place to sleep each night because of friends and a small amount of money each month, that’s all I have. Food money generally runs out come the end of the month, and I’ve given up a of of the basics as far as everything else goes. Surviving is tough, and it’s even tougher when you’re trying to pull yourself up from the bottom.

Why don’t you just get a job?

Believe me, I’m trying. I wouldn’t dare ask otherwise. I’ve been trying for the past couple of years to do so, and now that I’m 18, a few opportunities are actually coming in despite the awful economic situation. The problem is that I live in an extremely small town, one without transportation and one without places to work that are less than 15 miles away. In short, I’m stuck in a cycle that a lot of people are probably familiar with: need a car for work, need work for a car. 

What do I get for helping out?

Other than a teary eyed message from me, I don’t have tons to offer. But, there are a few things that I can do if you message me off anon:
a promo to 3k+ followers as well as a super awesome thank you
a doodle of whatever you’d like to the best of my ability
(???) to be added
If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. If you’re interested in donating, I have a paypal button linked on the top left corner of my blog, or you can donate directly at ventricularsystem@hotmail.com.

Highly-criticized Albuquerque police further militarize with $350,000 purchase of 350 AR-15 rifles
The Albuquerque Police Department, which has drawn criticism for its use of excessive force, plans to supply officers with hundreds of military-style weapons.
The department awarded a bid to a local vendor to purchase 350 AR-15 rifles over two years, reported KOB-TV, with the option of buying quantities of 50 thereafter, as needed.
The rifles cost about $1,000 each and will be purchased with taxpayer funds.
Civil liberties groups have warned in recent months about the growing militarization of U.S. police departments which have been buying surplus military equipment for civilian purposes.
Although the AR-15 is the civilian version of the military-grade M16 rifle, “you’re asking for trouble, in my opinion,” said Peter Simonson, executive director of the ACLU of New Mexico.
A U.S. Department of Justice report cited Albuquerque police in April for engaging in a “pattern and practice” of using excessive force, and Police Chief Gorden Eden told officers the following month they could no longer carry their personal weapons – including AR-15s – in the field.
The DOJ report found officers would purchase expensive weapons they viewed as “status symbols.”
“I think it sends a contradictory message to the public, and I think it should raise concerns about how seriously they’re actually taking the DOJ reforms,” Simonson said.
A spokeswoman for the police chief said the weapons were “ordered as replacements for officers’ authorized personally-owned rifles” and did “not represent an increase in the number of rifles carried by APD officers.”
“The replacement rifles are the standard type of rifle used commonly by police departments throughout the United States and may be purchased by any person at a commercial retailer,” said spokeswoman Janet Blair.
The president of the Albuquerque police union disagreed that the weapons would militarize the department.
Union President Stephanie Lopez said about 320 Albuquerque police officers had paid for their own training to shoot rifles and requested the department pay to buy the guns after they were told to leave their own at home.
“That training shouldn’t go to waste,” Lopez said. “There is a need to have these weapons on the street and within the department.”
The union president cited the October shooting rampage led by suspect Christopher Chase, who was dressed in body armor and targeted officers during a lengthy pursuit through the city.
Chase was shot to death buy officers with weapons similar to AR-15s, she said, adding that standard-issue handguns and shotguns would not have been effective.
Officers also used AR-15 rifles to shoot and kill ”illegal” camper James Boyd in March.

    Lol

    Thank you so much to everyone who has participated in this thread! Your comments are much appreciated.  The listing has been edited for clarity. 

    Just for clarity and transparency, you morally bankrupt little puke, I’m going to reblog your bullshit “clarification” in it’s entirety before I rip it to fucking shreds.

    “First of all, I would like to start off with an apology.”

    Excellent start!

    “I am sorry, femmes”

    Excuse the fuck out of me? You owe someone an apology, but it sure isn’t femmes. Try again.

    “for all of the heat that you took for posting this pin on someone’s wall, reblogging it on tumblr, giggling because it struck a chord, or pointing it out in certain company to try to start a conversation that ended up going sideways.”

    Gee, because insinuating that butches shouldn’t be trusted, butches who held the fucking gates and fought the battles and started the Stonewall Riots, can’t be trusted, is “trying to start a conversation that ended up going sideways”. No, it didn’t go sideways, it was skewed to hell to begin with. Those butches you don’t trust have taken more heat than your shitty undercut queer self would know what to do with, and they have never asked for anything more than respect you refuse to give them.

    “That was an unforeseen consequence.”

    You don’t fucking say? What a fucking surprise. Jesus Christ, you’re ignorant as well as amoral.

    “Next, and this should go without saying; I have amazing butches in my life. Like, a bunch, in a ton of different roles.”

    Really? Do you also totally, like, have Chicano friends so it’s totally okay for you to wander around being all “trust no cholo lol!” Cmon now, your ignorance is obvious. You don’t need to waggle it around. I feel sorry for your butch friends, to be honest.

    “Do I trust them all? You bet. Did I when I met them? No way.”

    Because you’re an asshole. Obviously.

    “Cause here’s a slippery thing about butch, from way over here, looking back on where I used to live; the easiest way to do it is to be kind of a jerk!”

    Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit (shout out to my homegirl who came up with that!) I guess you’d fucking know, eh? Shit, you could teach a seminar on How To Recognize Assholes. I’ll even donate the mirrors.

    “Take up some space, center yourself, get a little condescending; you know, strap on some of the low-hanging trappings of misogyny.”

    God forbid a woman assert herself and take up space. Jesus Christ almighty whatever shall we do. Seriously, fuck that noise.

    I’m not down for misogyny, but saying “trust no butch” is a pretty prime example. I’d trust a butch to save my life before I trusted you with a pet pebble.

    “That’s exhausting to be around, and it’s JV.”

    You know what’s exhausting? Your solipsistic navel gazing attempt at justification. Give me a butch taking up space over you wasting my time any goddamn day.

    “In the very particular context of this pin, beginning to trust a butch starts with getting to see first-hand that that they’ve put away casual sexism as a tenet of their gender. That their butch is varsity.”

    Whereas some glitterqueer lesbophobic etsy queen is totally kosher, as she shills her wares to the lesbian community. Fuck that, hypocrite. You wanna talk Varsity, let’s fuckin go.

    “Please ask yourself. When you first saw this, did it hurt your feelings?”

    Holy shit, or maybe it’s just fucking offensive and lesbophobic. Maybe that’s why their feelings get hurt. I’m not even a butch, but I’ve known butches I’ve just met to put themselves bodily between me and men, knowing full well that’s a good way to end up dead. Butches have historically protected out communities, often at the risk of their own lives.

    They’re entitled to their feelings when some sad little shill trying to make bank ignores that history and then tries to justify herself.

    “Did you get upset that someone else saw a glint of truth in it? Did your heart start to form the words, “Not all butches!!”? Did you pause to consider some reasons that might necessitate its creation?”

    Now you’re comparing butches to MRA’s who go out and murder women. This! Right here, this is why lesbians don’t want shitall to do with queers. You fuckers are vampires.

    “”It’s just a drop in the bucket compared to [the sexism] we get from dudes all the time!” Sure. But it’s the saltiest drop as it comes from our own.”

    As opposed to some queermo throwing butches under the bus to get some stars on etsy. That’s not “coming from our own”. You’re not my own, don’t presume to speak for me. I’d rather chew glass.

    “If you’d prefer to hear similar sentiments written by a butch, this link may be of interest: http://www.autostraddle.com/butch-please-butch-with-a-side-of-misogyny-174442/

    Because Autostraddle is a neo-liberal post-modernist piece of shit that has always been butch-hostile, especially in it’s new iteration as queequee gender central.

    That’s bullshit.

    “What do you do to identify and dismantle the sexism that exists within the queer and lesbian communities? Which team did you make?”

    Well personally, I call your shit out, and embrace my butch sisters for who they are.

    I trust butches. You? You’re in it for the fucking cash, and I wouldn’t trust you if you offered to pay me in Labrador puppies.

    Grow some fucking decency and respect the women who have held this community together for decades before you were born.

    aislingetmaya:

    White privilege with white women is inherent and is why it is necessary to always keep in mind that not all women go through the same issues.  It literally puts them immediately on a higher level of social standing in comparison women of color because women of color are darker by default, therefore lesser because of white supremacy.  White privilege, regardless of how open-minded white women may claim to be, will protect white women from being able to truly understand how their whiteness affects women of color.  

    Indeed, white women, too, have their bodies scrutinized.  I am in no way ignoring or even advocating for that.  But while white women look for solutions to end the scrutinization of their bodies, they indirectly affect women of color by mimicking the bodies of women of color.  In looking for solutions to end the scrutinizing, white women indirectly cause harm to women of color because it is okay for white women to have big butts, big boobs, thicker lips, tanner skin, etc., while on another level, those very same traits which are common among women of color are still used to body-shame women of color.  Having a big butt or big boobs make women of color promiscuous or “fat”, having thicker lips makes their faces disproportionate, and simply having a dark complexion is something which allows for these differences in beauty standards.

    The attractiveness of the physicalities of women of color are constantly in a back and forth game of good and bad.  Yes, curves are good, but not on black or brown women or else they are fat and overly promiscuous.  Yes, thicker lips are good, but only on white women, because on smaller, darker faces, it’s disproportionate and ugly.  Yes, having tanner/darker skin is good, but only when it’s white women tanning, while having naturally darker skin as a woman of color subjects them to the dizzying beauty standards which contributes to internalized racism and self-hating.

    Fuck that “trust no butch” noise.

    To my butch sisters, not only do I trust you, I value you and I’ll defend you. You’ve held our community together through thick and thin, and we owe you.

    Thank you for your swagger (that scares away men), and thank you for taking up space (so that men can’t crowd us in), and for putting up with this shit when you shouldn’t have to and don’t deserve it.

    Fuck this queer shit. Y’all’ll be around when these shits have grown out the undercut and started chairing the PTA.
