There is no lack of women who want to be directors. There is an industry that carries on an obsolete white hypermasculine mindset that discourages them from pursuing positions of power, erases the presence of the women who do, and diminishes their opportunities..And in the end, contributions by women will not be remembered..instead the white men who steal and popularize their innovations will be remembered and idolized by a new generation of film school fuckboys
I was in a hospital today and I saw this cute guy with a cast on his leg and my first thought was

'no ones ever been killed in the name of science'
- hiroshima and nagosaki bombings and countless other american and british nuclear tests
- jewish children in medical experiments in nazi concentration camps
- black people in america injected with certain diseases and others left to die from the diseases as scientific experiments to see how the disease ran its course (Tuskegee syphilis experiment)
- unit 731 in northeast china ran by the japanese, too vile to go into detail about but 10s of 1000s of people died at the hands of scientist experiments in biological and chemical warfare such as limbs and organs removed with no anaesthetics, burned at certain degrees to see how the skin reacted, left in high pressure chambers till they died, organs injected with horse urine etc etc
- 1000s from drug research which has gone wrong killing some and causing cancer and other diseases in others

"I decided that I was a feminist. This seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists. Apparently, [women’s expression is] seen as too strong, too aggressive, anti-men, unattractive."
I like to think that sometimes when people were talking to James and said “are you fucking serious?” he said “no but I wish” and turned around and winked at Sirius who winked back and Peter just giggled while Remus just crossed his arms and rolled his eyes
my mom and i are venturing to make old family recipe cinnamon rolls which is made more difficult with the fact that neither of us ever bake with yeast.we're just hoping at this point
I think one of the reasons the Harry Potter Epilogue was so poorly received was because the audience was primarily made up of the Millennial generation.
We’ve walked with Harry, Ron and Hermione, through a world that we thought was great but slowly revealed itself to be the opposite. We unpeeled the layers of corruption within the government, we saw cruelty against minorities grow in the past decades, and had media attack us and had teachers tell us that we ‘must not tell lies’. We got angry and frustrated and, like Harry, Ron and Hermione, had to think of a way to fight back. And them winning? That would have been enough to give us hope and leave us satisfied.
But instead. There was skip scene. And suddenly they were all over 30 and happy with their 2.5 children.
And the Millennials were left flailing in the dust.
Because while we recognised and empathised with everything up to that point. But seeing the Golden Trio financially stable and content and married? That was not something our generation could recognise. Because we have no idea if we’re ever going to be able to reach that stage. Not with the world we’re living in right now.
Having Harry, Ron and Hermione stare off into the distance after the battle and wonder about what the future might be would have stuck with us. Hell, have them move into a shitty flat together and try and sort out their lives would have. Have them with screaming nightmares and failed relationships and trying to get jobs in a society that’s falling apart would have. Have them still trying to fix things in that society would have. Because we known Voldemort was just a symptom of the disease of prejudice the Wizarding World.
But don’t push us off with an ‘all was well’. In a world about magic, JK Rowling finally broke our suspension of disbelief by having them all hit middle-class and middle-age contentment and expecting a fanbase of teenagers to accept it.
Also. Since when was ‘don’t worry kids, you’re going to turn out just like your parents’ ever a happy ending? Does our generation even recognise marriage and money and jobs as the fulfillment of life anymore? Does our generation even recognise the Epilogue’s Golden Trio anymore?
#i think this one of the reasons why the james/lily/albus naming theme bothered me #because there’s a sense of going in a circle rather than pressing forward #the only way the wizarding world will survive if it changes dramatically from this point #having the station seem exactly the same #right down to the names being thrown around #makes it seem stagnant #so i’m guessing another dark lord should turn up in a couple of decades (x)
