robotsquid: Seriously though your period is like coming home one day and finding that your spouse has constructed this entire new baby bedroom inside your house and you have to tell them “Sweetie we don’t have a baby” and then your spouse FLIPS THE FUCK OUT like “The FUCK do you mean we don’t have a baby I DID ALL THIS WORK” and then they spend the next week tearing the whole room apart and...

butterscotchcreys: cloysterbell: Out of context Harry Potter quotes are the best things ever. “Tired of walking in on Harry, Hermione and Ron all over the school, Professor McGonagall had given them permission to use the empty Transfiguration classroom at lunchtimes.” “Stars winking in front of his eyes, he grabbed the top of the hat to pull it off and felt something long and hard beneath...

Let’s not let that pass. The most insidious cruelty of rape is...

julieheartsbooks: publicshaming: The news out of Steubenville today is a *small step* in the right direction for a town that seems to be plagued with cover-ups in an attempt to save their beloved football team. Two young men were sentenced to juvenile detention in the Steubenville rape case today. I suggest you look up what they put the victim through if you are not familiar with the story....
Is it weird that I’m googling the lyrics to a song I hear all the time at work, not because I like the song or want to listen to it, but because it’s so awful, I want to know who specifically to hate?

fuckyeahjaneausten: “Let’s face it, if you don’t love Jane Austen, then you shouldn’t be an English major. That’s mean…you just shouldn’t be a human being.” — My professor for my class on the English novel, also strong front-runner for my favorite professor ever. (via drachens) Sounds about right.
