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


Wow. Just. Wow.

A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it.

Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.

The Trans Wars

It was not the best of times. Oh, hell no. Life was brutal, and it never made a damn bit of sense.


Mankind likes to procrastinate. Technological advances seemingly appear out of nowhere during the most trying times, when a threat of annihilation looms over the heads of every one of us.


The UPHEAVAL lasted for about four decades. Of course, it waxed and waned across the globe, countries and territories each getting swept up in the wake. Intolerance and discrimination are nothing new, and - as per usual - conflict sprung up from out of the warm embrace of peace. The man-eating crocodile that lives in the placid lake.


There were those who saw it coming, someone always sees stuff like this coming. Nevertheless, it was largely ignored. Some paid heed and either tried to warn others in their own little way, while others listened and only rebuked the notion. No good came of listening.


"Was is the UPHEAVAL?”, you ask. Well, that story comes soon, just not today. I need to collect my thoughts, to give it the time and credence a story of this magnitude deserves. It is an important era of history, and it need not be ignored, nor watered down.

This looks just like a dog at my daycare. This would be hilarious if it was her.
