some feelings

  • entering a warm room after being out in the cold
  • the “boom” in your heart when you hear a firework explode
  • having someone brush your hair
  • the buzz of your fingers opening a package you had been waiting for
  • writing with a new pen
  • the funny feeling in your stomach when you see the sun outside your window and realize you’ve stayed up all night

Was she going to slap you because you never in any way made him gay in the actual books, taking zero risks/doing absolutely nothing for gay characters in literature, and only announcing your “authorial intent” afterwards for a cheap shot at looking like an ~ally~

^^^

Gay people are just normal people. We are not told about any of the Hogwarts professors love lives, other than Snape, and it would be completely out of character for Dumbledore to walk around telling everyone about his sexuality.

Did you want her to make him dress in glittery platform boots, a crop top, and decorate his office in rainbow flags to make it more obvious for you? Would that be enough of a stereotype to appease you people? Or what? Please tell me. I’d like to know how you think a gay character is supposed to be portrayed.

And did you miss the Grindelwald chapters in the ‘actual books’? Or was that also not obvious enough for you? Did Dumbledore need to whisper “always” wistfully in order for you to connect that he had romantic feelings for Grindelwald? Maybe you are American and need them to gaze longingly into each others eyes with awkward close ups of their fingers almost grazing each other that Hollywood thinks means ‘true love’. 

It didn’t fit into his relationship to Harry to ever say “I’m gay”, and so it was not stated explicitly (you might have noticed the book was told from Harry Potter’s perspective).

The point is though, that he is a homosexual, well respected, powerful, and very loved wizard- and his sexuality doesn’t matter because no one else thinks it matters. a.k.a. no one care that he loves men, and that is wonderful.

While more visibility would have been nice…

1. The books are told from Harry’s POV, and he’s thick as a post. He didn’t even realise that Snape’s handwriting matched that of the Half Blood Prince. It makes sense that he wouldn’t know about Dumbledore’s sexuality or love for Grindelwald. In fact, in Deathly Hallows, Harry even contemplates how many wasted opportunities he’s had to talk to Dumbledore, and how every conversation he and Dumbledore had revolved around him (Harry); and that the only personal question Harry ever asked Dumbledore (what he sees when he looks in the Mirror of Erised) was probably answered falsely (understandably).

2. As pointed out above, the teachers’ love lives are generally obscure within the narrative. We didn’t find out about Snape and Lily until DH, and JKR also recently revealed that McGonagall was in love with a muggle she couldn’t be with. Harry never knows any of these things within the books unless they’re explicitly revealed to him.

This doesn’t mean that representation couldn’t have occurred. Harry could have remarked that Dean and Seamus went to the Yule Ball together, for instance. So I’m not saying that the books aren’t problematic as far as queer representation is concerned; but I don’t think Dumbledore is the best target of criticism.

846. A muggleborn girl creates a spell to make perfectly winged eyeliner and it catches on with purebloods and halfbloods. Soon there is a group that gets together every week to create, research, and improve cosmetic spells including eyebrow shaping charms, hair dying charms, no chip nail polish, hair de-frizzing charms, and temporary tattoos that move like wizard photos.

Here’s a test:

I’m holding a baby in one hand and a petri dish holding a fetus in the other.

I’m going to drop one. You chose which.

If you really truly believe a fetus is the same thing as a baby, it should be impossible for you to decide. You should have to flip a coin, that’s how impossible the decision should be.

Shot in the dark, you saved the baby.

Because you’re aware there’s a difference.

Now admit it

woah.

These are the mugshots of William West and William West, and they are not related. They were both sent to Leavenworth Prison at the same time, in 1903, and after some confusion, the staff understood they had two different prisoners with the exact same name, who looked exactly alike. They are part of the reason fingerprints are now used as identification.

no but imagine the tally marks turning black if their love is requited.

and then imagine the tally marks becoming a scar when the one they love dies.

Imagine someone with no tally marks meeting someone with 50 tally marks

Imagine someone with no tally marks starting to like someone with all tally marks scarred 

imagine aromantics with no tally marks laughing at this tally mark bullshit system
imagine someone afraid of being in love suddenly getting a tally mark
imagine someone married with a single nice black tally mark has a new one just appear
imagine someone with a single scarred mark that refuses to love again gets a new mark and it’s black
imagine someone who falls in love too easily having a lot of marks
imagine nurses at old people homes taking care of people with scarred marks, black marks, and no marks

Grow a whole fucking cabbage in the time it takes to do that.

Without a Judeo-Christian moral code in its society, Japanese scientists decide to play god.

this is a food sample. food samples are handmade FAKE food created for advertisement photography and display - all those pictures of delicious hamburgers in mcdonald’s ads & menus aren’t actual hamburgers they are fake ass food samples.

He’s pouring hot wax into cold water to form the fake food. which is actually very cool because it takes mad skill. do 62,000 people actually believe you can pour some magical liquid into water and create cabbage. this is why americans are so fat we can’t even distinguish wax cabbage from actual vegetables.
