the ultimate question of doctor who isn’t “doctor who?”

it’s “how do the daleks build anything”

SERIOUSLY THEY HAVE A WHISK AND A PLUNGER

Everything’s made of scrambled eggs.

and in that moment, the entire movie theater burst into tears

i think this was the moment that made most of us despise umbridge more than voldemort

most of us?! don’t you mean ALL of us?? I don’t think even Voldemort liked this bitch!

No one likes Umbridge.

I heard, one time, a dementor kissed her and IT died

Voldemort committed genocide, but Umbridge dared to be female while she abused her power. 

The point isn’t that Umbridge was worse than Voldemort; it’s that everyone hates her more. And I think it has nothing to do with her being a woman and everything with being the sort of cruel most of us have actually experienced.
I mean, look at Voldemort. He’s basically Wizard Hitler, which is, obviously, an incredibly terrible thing to be. But most people—especially the younger people in Harry Potter’s target audience—have not had their parents murdered by a xenophobic cult leader. Nor have they fought for their lives against giant snakes, been kidnapped for dark rituals, or watched numerous friends die in front of them. Voldemort’s crimes are numerous, but they’re distant and fantastical, like hearing about a serial killer on the news.
But they have had that one teacher who inflicts extra punishments just because they don’t like you. They’ve complained to parents and authorities only to be ignored. They’ve sat through pointless classes and been silenced when they criticize. Umbridge is that teacher we all hated because she made our lives miserable and we were powerless to stop her. And as we grow out of school, there are still people in positions of power who act like her. The manager who denies your schedule requests and penalizes you for invented infractions. That customer who complains to corporate because their scam didn’t work, and the corporate decision to listen to their story. Cops performing illegal searches because they know you don’t have any proof.
Yes, torturing and killing numerous people is worse than terrorizing a handful of schoolchildren, but Voldemort is the bad guy in a fairy tale. Umbridge is personal.

*drops the mic*

Voldemort is the villain we never hope to face.
Umbridge is the villain we face every day.

thank you all-four-cheekbones some people on this website need to realise not everything is a matter of sexism or gender discrimination omg

except that the universal loathing of Umbridge is partly tied to her gender
you know what other Hogwarts teacher was an abusive piece of trash that used their position of power to mess with children?
Snape. he was so abusive and scary to children, that a child whose parents that had been tortured into insanity feared Snape more than he feared the people who broke his family irreparably.
and yet, he’s one of the most loved characters in the series for reasons I can not fathom. because he’s a dude.
i agree with the assessment that people loathe Umbridge more than Voldemort because she’s the evil we know. but Snape is that same kind of evil, and yet the fandom thinks he’s the bees fuckin knees.
i’ve seen people falling over themselves to defend Snape, and to write fics proclaiming him to be a fuckgod, pairing him up with every character from Hermione to McGonagall. because he’s a dude. i’ve never seen a single person try to redeem Umbridge. Instead, sexism runs rampant against her character, with ‘Umbitch’ being the most commonly used word when people talk of her.
Snape and Umbridge are both awful teachers using their position of power to abuse children, and yet, Snape is given accolades and love because he wanted to bone Lily Evans, despite all the awful shit we know he’s done.
everyone needs to take a good, close look at why they hate Umbridge more than Snape, when Snape is just as awful as Umbridge.

No, we hate Umbridge because J.K. Rowling hated people like Umbridge. She worked as a teacher for a time and had a singular hatred for government administrators who came into schools and started bossing around the teachers. Voldemort was based on people like Hitler and Stalin, the classic villains of history, but Umbridge? She was based on the kind of person Rowling got to know and hate on a really personal level. We hate her because we feel the author’s presence, her beliefs and thoughts and feelings, pushing through the pages.

florida is a godless place. I went there once, got in the ocean, and immediately had to evacuate because a bull shark was swimming right towards me. there was an alligator on the side of the freeway. meth addicts and men on tractors roam free. florida is america’s australia

I grew up in Florida. Please don’t insult Australia like that.

but what about men?

for once “but what about men” was a phenomenal addition to one of my posts and I applaud you

I need a tag I can use when I reblog posts like this, something that means “Dude, seriously? Not helping.”

Check out these incredible Jaeger cosplays of Cherno Alpha and Gypsy Danger made by DBsamurai and Hailee. They even light up! Though entering the Amazing Arizona Comic Con costume contest under the novice category, the judges bumped them up to the expert level and gave them first place! Well deserved!  You can check out their process on making these costumes come to life HERE

let. me. love. you.

For the Gypsy one, add a shot-glass bandolier, a big stein, some booze bottles, and voila! TIPSY DANGER!

After a long-fought battle in Australia, a python bested a crocodile and swallowed the reptile whole over a span of several hours in Queensland, Australia.

The snake reportedly fought the croc for five hours in Lake Moondarra. Winning the fight, the python constricted its prey to death. The estimated 10-foot snake then dragged the 3-foot croc ashore and proceeded to swallow it whole in front of a group of onlookers.

National Geographic identified the snake as an olive python and the croc as a Johnson’s crocodile, both of which are native to Australia. After its hefty meal, the python should be full for at least a month.

I love it when stuff like this makes the international news. It’s so handy when I go overseas. People think you’re automatically some kind of badarse when Everything In Your Backyard Is Trying To Kill You.

"You wanna get fresh with me, mate? There’s critters in the scrub behind my house that eat crocodiles. You know, crocodiles — they’re like alligators, but fucking hardcore."

My dream cast for a Cowboy Bebop movie (an Anglo cast, admittedly, but I don’t watch enough Japanese cinema to put together any other) used to be Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Hayley Atwell, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Chloe Grace Moretz, but sadly, Moretz got too old to fit the role.

If dudes are expected to have a lot of sex

But ladies are expected to stay virgins until marriage

But homosexuality is bad

I’m really confused who dudes are supposed to be having all that sex with

Guys I got it

Society is literally telling dudes to go fuck themselves

I’m sorry I can’t not reblog this

I haven’t laughed so hard at being insulted since my last parent-teacher conference.

baby-snails:

lucas bit my ass and this truly terrifying thing happened

…
So.
I’m trying to be polite and respectful.
But it looks like a tortured spirit is trying to break free from your butt.
I tried, there’s no flattering way to put it.
