Yes just me, a dog. Taking a walk. With my dogs. Who are my friends. But also dogs. And I am a dog.

What we didn’t have yesterday.
THIS IS WHY IT’S HUGE
can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda
and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind
and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move
Sometimes I get huffy about tumblr but then I see that 260,000 people got the same kind of chills I did reading this…
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH.
god bless sdcc
MY MUM WENT INTO MY ROOM
AND SHE THOUGHT I SNEAKED OUT
how can i be ready for future when i’m not even ready to get up in the morning
this is a solid question
Over the years we’ve had a variety of odd pairs
We have a frog and a pig
a rabbit and a promiscuously drawn woman
a donkey and a dragon
a shape shifting dog and a rainbow unicorn
and a warthog with a meerkat who raise a lion cub
But no one will ever accept the Bee Movie
I thought this was gonna be about gay couples but gee was I mistaken
packs 2 hours before leaving for a trip

And this is brilliant. Because it demonstrates that racism isn’t only present in clearly malicious and evil people, in the Malfoys and Blacks - it’s also there in warm, kind, funny people who just happened to learn some pretty toxic things growing up in a pretty toxic society. And they can unlearn them too, with some time and effort. Ron eventually accepts Hagrid’s parentage, lets Lupin bandage his leg and in the final battle, he worries about the safety of the house elves.
Some people are prejudiced because they are evil, and some people are prejudiced because they don’t know better yet. And those people can learn better, and become better people. And that’s an important lesson. The lesson taught about discrimination shouldn’t be “only evil people do it”, because then all readers will assume it doesn’t apply to them. Instead old JK teaches us “you too are probably doing it, and you should do stop ASAP”.
things you should totes not view as positive portrayals of love/romance:
- the great gatsby
- romeo & juliet
- the phantom of the opera
- Fifty Shades of Grey
