#oh my god #look at this #how it starts off with reds and oranges and purples #bright colors #and then it gets continuously darker towards the end #it’s so fitting to the story #and then there is that strip of white at the end #which has to be the king’s cross scene #and it’s just #light #in a dark time #which is extremely beautiful
Every frame of the Harry Potter movies, condensed into a barcode.
you know why theres a white part at the end? because happiness can be found even in the darkest of times
only the harry potter fandom would make me have feelings about color stripes.

“Here’s the thing. Men in our culture have been socialized to believe that their opinions on women’s appearance matter a lot. Not all men buy into this, of course, but many do. Some seem incapable of entertaining the notion that not everything women do with their appearance is for men to look at. This is why men’s response to women discussing stifling beauty norms is so often something like “But I actually like small boobs!” and “But I actually like my women on the heavier side, if you know what I mean!” They don’t realize that their individual opinion on women’s appearance doesn’t matter in this context, and that while it might be reassuring for some women to know that there are indeed men who find them fuckable, that’s not the point of the discussion.
Women, too, have been socialized to believe that the ultimate arbiters of their appearance are men, that anything they do with their appearance is or should be “for men.” That’s why women’s magazines trip over themselves to offer up advice on “what he wants to see you wearing” and “what men think of these current fashion trends” and “wow him with these new hairstyles.” While women can and do judge each other’s appearance harshly, many of us grew up being told by mothers, sisters, and female strangers that we’ll never “get a man” or “keep a man” unless we do X or lose some fat from Y, unless we moisturize//trim/shave/push up/hide/show/”flatter”/paint/dye/exfoliate/pierce/surgically alter this or that.
That’s also why when a woman wears revealing clothes, it’s okay, in our society, to assume that she’s “looking for attention” or that she’s a slut and wants to sleep with a bunch of guys. Because why else would a woman wear revealing clothes if not for the benefit of men and to communicate her sexual availability to them, right? It can’t possibly have anything to do with the fact that it’s hot out or it’s more comfortable or she likes how she looks in it or everything else is in the laundry or she wants to get a tan or maybe she likes women and wants attention from them, not from men?
The result of all this is that many men, even kind and well-meaning men, believe, however subconsciously, that women’s bodies are for them. They are for them to look at, for them to pass judgment on, for them to bless with a compliment if they deign to do so. They are not for women to enjoy, take pride in, love, accept, explore, show off, or hide as they please. They are for men and their pleasure.”
this is literally so insanely fucking important fucking hell fuckity fuckkkkkk
Yeah, I don’t like going around shouting out my Colombian pride as a way to show just how much of an unprivileged minority I am and oh look how much tumblr will accept me cause I fit into these stupid categories
Like, yo quiero que gente me vea como una persona, no como unos categorias,
Ademas, si un/a gringo/a me viene como “ERES RACISTA Y MACHISTA Y HOMOFOBICO” les puedo decir “SORPRESA! usted eres mas privilegiada que yo, asi que no juego ese maldito estupido juego con mi, por que vas a perder.
Also, technically, I AM white. Well, mestizo, which means a mix of native american and white, most hispanics are that. But there are a lot of combinations, so hispanic isn’t really a race like white, black and native american are, it’s all three.
But yeah,I’m so pale people say I look Italian, so I just let them go with it, until I get angry and start spouting angry spanish cause it sounds more intimidating to people who cant speak it.
cool to know there are more hispanics on here.
