Quick reminder, that we often try to catch up with some super artist that isn’t even real. You know, that one who can do absolutely anything, learnt it within a week, doesn’t need any sleep and is working on like a hundred successful projects at the same time. We’re being all sad and frustrated because we think we’re no good compared to that one super artist. But then, who is?

do you ever stop to think what it would be like if the dursleys were nice to harry? what if their reason for hating magic wasn’t simply that it was magic and they were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much but that it took petunia’s sister away from her and then killed her? what if it wasn’t even really hatred bc wizards are different and not normal but accumulated pain and fear bc some wizards kill?

imagine harry actually being able to call privet drive his home. imagine him having a room like any other kid and playing with dudley and eating full meals every day. imagine dudley defending harry instead of being the one to bully him. imagine the dursleys celebrating harry’s birthdays as well, having his pictures on the walls next to dudley’s, buying him new clothes, hugging him. imagine if they actually told him the truth about his parents, that they had magic and they were killed but they loved him so so much. imagine harry being able to talk with petunia about his mother, to hear stories about her childhood and what was she liked and that he has her eyes and they’re beautiful. imagine harry getting to read his letter at breakfast and be excited bc he’s like his mum and dad, he has magic too.

imagine harry knowing love from the very start.

but now think about this happy harry who would have a family to go back to and ask yourself: would he be so eager to sacrifice himself in the forest? would it be so easy for him to accept death? would there be any reason for him to do just that? of course not. and of course dumbledore knew all that. if the dursleys were indeed nice people dumbledore would probably find a different place for harry bc he needed him broken, he needed him selfless to the point where it’s unhealthy, he needed him to be the weapon to kill voldemort and nobody cares if weapons get a happy childhood, they’re just weapons after all.

recent studies reveal that 100% of abortions are performed on people who do not wish to be pregnant and 0% of abortions are performed on conservative republican men

*reblogs so fast it almost breaks computer*

Not quite 100%. There is such a thing as coerced/forced abortion. (Ditto for sterilization).  This most typically involves women who experience multiple forms of marginalization, such as women with disabilities (especially intellectual and/or psychosocial disabilities, and most particularly women with disabilities in institutions), but also indigenous women and other women of color.

For some women, the fight for “reproductive freedom” is not about accessing abortions that they may not want, it’s about having the right to become and remain pregnant if that’s what they want, and then keep and raise their child, all without undue pressure to be sterilized, get an abortion, release their child for adoption, etc., just because they’re women with disabilities.

Howard Stark’s abuse of Tony may have been emotional and psychological rather than physical (depending how you read into it).

And it’s hard to compare it to the deep, systematic alienation and abuse Bruce received from his father, or the trauma Clint suffered at the hands of his father and brother.

But neither Clint nor Bruce have to repeatedly smile and make nice while people tell them what good men their abusers were.

Same goes for Loki.
