New Protest MVP Candidate! Get it girl! #staywoke #farfromover #thefutureisbright

i feel sick every time i see an obviously candid photo of a japanese school girl’s legs/thighs/body on my dashboard
like the ones of them just on trains or walking or in a store where either you cant see their face or its cropped out
those are taken by perverts/pedophiles and are a huge problem in japan
the girls in the photos are generally underage (and anyway school uniforms are ALWAYS used as age markers so….) and DONT know the photo is being taken
this kind of thing (as well as upskirts, etc.) are SO common in japan that its actually illegal to produce/sell phones or cameras that allow you to silence the shutter sound so that you cannot take a secret photo of someone
and every time i see the photos on my dash i get chills because its no a cute “kawaii” photo for your pale blog its disgusting
OH MY GOD NO

I think one of the reasons the Harry Potter Epilogue was so poorly received was because the audience was primarily made up of the Millennial generation.
We’ve walked with Harry, Ron and Hermione, through a world that we thought was great but slowly revealed itself to be the opposite. We unpeeled the layers of corruption within the government, we saw cruelty against minorities grow in the past decades, and had media attack us and had teachers tell us that we ‘must not tell lies’. We got angry and frustrated and, like Harry, Ron and Hermione, had to think of a way to fight back. And them winning? That would have been enough to give us hope and leave us satisfied.
But instead. There was skip scene. And suddenly they were all over 30 and happy with their 2.5 children.
And the Millennials were left flailing in the dust.
Because while we recognised and empathised with everything up to that point. But seeing the Golden Trio financially stable and content and married? That was not something our generation could recognise. Because we have no idea if we’re ever going to be able to reach that stage. Not with the world we’re living in right now.
Having Harry, Ron and Hermione stare off into the distance after the battle and wonder about what the future might be would have stuck with us. Hell, have them move into a shitty flat together and try and sort out their lives would have. Have them with screaming nightmares and failed relationships and trying to get jobs in a society that’s falling apart would have. Have them still trying to fix things in that society would have. Because we known Voldemort was just a symptom of the disease of prejudice the Wizarding World.
But don’t push us off with an ‘all was well’. In a world about magic, JK Rowling finally broke our suspension of disbelief by having them all hit middle-class and middle-age contentment and expecting a fanbase of teenagers to accept it.
Also. Since when was ‘don’t worry kids, you’re going to turn out just like your parents’ ever a happy ending? Does our generation even recognise marriage and money and jobs as the fulfillment of life anymore? Does our generation even recognise the Epilogue’s Golden Trio anymore?
Teenagers AND YOUNG ADULTS. We were homeless and living in a creepy guy’s basement when Deathly Hallows came out. She had me up until the epilogue.
Don’t tell me it’s all gonna be okay because it’s fucking not okay. I am almost 30 and it’s still not fucking okay and possibly never will be in my lifetime.
Don’t push us off with an ‘all was well’.

note to critics of the world: When you’re talking to African-American women, don’t use the tired “angry black woman” stereotype.
New York Times critic Alessandra Stanley, whose journalism career includes a laundry list of inaccuracies and errors, published a disgusting assessment of how Rhimes and her hit ABC series Scandal have changed the television landscape for black women.
"When Shonda Rhimes writes her autobiography," Stanley begins, "it should be called How to Get Away With Being an Angry Black Woman."
That author is definitely one of those awkward ass white people who say bullshit like that to “create rapport.”
White people, let it be known that shit is not cute and will earn you awkward points.
