the ceo of abercrombie and fitch has a lot of nerve saying that ugly people shouldn’t wear his clothes when he looks like a caucasian orc from the lord of the rings
Please Azog is WAY more attractive than that guy. If we’re comparing him to orcs, I’m thinking Mr. Potato Head.
I JUST SPIT WATER ONTO MY COMPUTER.
I’d like to bring this back. My friend and I want to see if there’s any sort of relationship between Hogwarts houses and personality types (we’re using Myers-Briggs for this).
If you’d like to participate, just reblog or reply to this post (or message me) with your House and type.
For houses- if you were sorted on Pottermore, I’d prefer if you used that result. If you aren’t on Pottermore, or really really don’t think that test matched you with the right house, just put the house you feel you fit in best with.
For Myers-Briggs types- if you don’t already know your Myers-Briggs type, this site is really helpful in determining which of the sixteen types best fits you. It isn’t a personality quiz, it just has information about the different elements that make up the types.
Thanks so much!
(Note- this is for our own personal nerdly enjoyment, not for Official Science or anything. When we put the data in the spreadsheet, we do not enter your username or any other identifying information- just the house and type.)

Fat Queer Tells All: On Fatness and Gender Flatness - By Allie Shyer (via cassket) —
STOP DISNEY FROM TRADEMARKING DIA DE LOS MUERTOS! I am signing this petition to stop Walt Disney from appropriating and exploiting Mexican religion and culture.Dia de los Muertos is a religious observance during which people, and particularly native peoples, in Mexico, the United States, and abroad, honor ancestors and loved ones who have died. This important religious, spiritual, and cultural observance pre-dates the invasion of Mexico by the Spanish. We celebrate and honor our deceased loved ones by making altars and placing offerings of food such as pan de muertos baked in shapes of skulls and figures, candles, incense, yellow marigolds known as cempaxochitl, and offering prayers and the smoke of copal.
an article about this in case you’re itching for a quick source, there’s also some posted with the petitition
I am surprised that Disney went that far… that’s pretty far. Guess I should know not to be surprised by now…
Passage from The Diary of Anne Frank that parents of 7th and 8th grade students are claiming is “too graphic” and “too pornographic” to appear in classrooms. Instead, they argue, a censored version of the book should be taught if it is to be taught at all.
Gail Horalek, the parent who filed a formal complaint with her daughter’s school district in Northville, Michigan, added:
If they watch any kind of movie with a swear word in it, I have to sign a permission slip. It doesn’t mean my child is sheltered, it doesn’t mean I live in a bubble, and it doesn’t mean I’m trying to ban books.
Yes, it does. If it’s “too graphic” for middle school aged kids to read about a body part in a diary written by a girl of the same age, those kids are sheltered. Acknowledging that vaginas exist and babies come out of them isn’t pornographic, especially when many middle school aged kids can and do have sex, sometimes resulting in a pregnancy. Somehow, though, it’s more offensive than Nazis systematically murdering over 12 million human-beings in concentration camps, forcing slave labor, starving millions until dead, lining people up and shooting them in the street, and doing horrific medical experiments on unwilling participants.
