“A woman should have every honorable motive to exertion which is enjoyed by man, to the full extent of her capacities and endowments. The case is too plain for argument. Nature has given woman the same powers, and subjected her to the same earth, breathes the same air, subsists on the same food, physical, moral, mental and spiritual. She has, therefore, an equal right with man, in all efforts to obtain and maintain a perfect existence.” - Frederick Douglass’ Paper, June 10, 1853.
The government shut down is so annoying because like

"I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. If you fucking like something, like it. That’s what’s wrong with our generation: that residual punk rock guilt, like, “You’re not supposed to like that. That’s not fucking cool.” Don’t fucking think it’s not cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” It is cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic”! Why the fuck not? Fuck you! That’s who I am, goddamn it! That whole guilty pleasure thing is full of fucking shit."
uses various racial slurs, emotionally abuses child of childhood crush for having resemblance to said crush’s husband, ((is literally a friendzoned dudebro)), flushed remus’ career down the drain over personal resentment knowing fully well he’d been homeless, jobless, all alone, and knowing fully well remus would not get another job,
abused his students ((remember the “i see no difference” to hermione when a slytherin cursed her teeth, something she was self-conscious about, instead of punishing the one who cursed her)), the students he was supposed to take care of, to the point where he was the worst fear of one of them
the fact severus snape formed when neville longbottom was supposed to see his worst fear in the boggart says a lot tbh and i know it was supposed to be a funny moment haha silly neville but to me it says a lot that despite there being dementors and ghosts and massive fucking spiders, and having his parents tortured half to death and into madness, neville’s worst fear is one of his teachers
“I find it very sad that media makes up bogus stories about women fighting in this industry. Filming The Help was the most amazing experience and yet, that is the film I’m most asked about in regards to ‘fighting on set’. Why do we support the myth that women are competitive and cannot get along?…
