501. Muggleborns accidentally calling Dumbledore “Gandalf”.
I have literally been waiting for this gifset for all time
i’m tired of being told girl group stans have superiority complexes and are uselessly aggressive towards male idols/groups. i don’t think a lot of these people understand how tough it is for these girls, who, no matter how good their songs are for the first two years of debut, will likely not get a single win and will consistently sell less than the males who debuted at the same time. it’s not to say that one is better than the other (that is strictly opinion based, and since girl group stans generally prefer songs sung by girls and the other side of the coin for male group stans… it’s just biased). we see our extremely talented rookie girl groups get stomped on by boy groups so often it really is something that makes you bitter. we see our girls get replaced by new male groups in their companies and realize we may never see them come back again. from a music standpoint, there’s a lot of male groups who really are given lackluster songs, debuts, dances, ect. it’s not that they aren’t working hard, it’s just frustrating to see that people are preferring songs by lazy companies over ones who are putting their everything into their groups. a lot of these songs given to male groups promote some extremely iffy ideals, especially ones where girls are seen as someone’s “belonging”. if there’s something even remotely “unfit” in a girl group’s song, it’s pointed out automatically and usually banned. their dances are changed for the smallest things, outfits modified, ect. it’s not that we think we’re better than you, we just think our girls deserve better than what they get.
my favorite tidbit about rome is that in the mid-1800s one of the popes didnt like the statues in rome having dicks so he ordered them knocked off. fast forward to the last decade or so and art historians in conjunction with the vatican are trying to erm. restore. the statues. but the dicks were just. kept in a box. so art historians are going around rome, with a box of dicks, trying to match them up to their owner.

I literally overcame self esteem issues by making ironically over-arrogant claims because even if you’re joking about something a lot you start to believe it and that can totally work in a good way if you let it
I was just thinking about this!
A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society. Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.
Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:
I don’t know who any of these folks are.
They were tourists I presume.
But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.
"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."
There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.
The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”
One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.
There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”
"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’
I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because this is truly how white America works. Like people have their weddings on plantations, Blackface was and still is a major source of entertainment and the biggest movie of all time was Gone With the Wind. White America will kill Black people and then smile and laugh and enjoy their day it sickens me that we’re treated this way.
