"I woke up like this"

“All of this is typical girl-fear. Once you realize that The Exorcist is, essentially, the story of a 12-year-old who starts cussing, masturbating, and disobeying her mother—in other words, going through puberty—it becomes apparent to the feminist-minded viewer why two adult men are called in to slap her around for much of the third act. People are convinced that something spooky is going on with girls; that, once they reach a certain age, they lose their adorable innocence and start tapping into something powerful and forbidden. Little girls are sugar and spice, but women are just plain scary. And the moment a girl becomes a woman is the moment you fear her most. Which explains why the culture keeps telling this story.”

why don’t tv writers realize there are better storylines than cheating and death

I just want y’all to remember that a few days ago a visibly armed white man was pointing a gun at children in a park in broad daylight. He was calmly talked down and brought in to custody. TJ Lane shot up his school, was taken to trial peacefully, sentenced, escaped, and peacefully captured again. Or the white man who under the influence of some drug, attacked 3 officers in the police station, disarmed one and fired a shot. He wasn’t even tased. 

Let’s compare that with the fact that, Mike Brown was shot 6 times while surrendering. Vonderrick Myer was armed with a fucking sandwich and shot at 16 times. Levar Jones was stopped for a seat belt violation and got shot at 4 times for retrieving the ID he was ordered to show. John Crawford III was shot for being armed with an airsoft gun, in Wal Mart, where they sell airsoft guns!

mashable:

J.K. Rowling has assumed the role of Twitter’s riddle queen, posting several cryptic messages that many fans believe are anagrams about her upcoming novelFantastical Beasts and Where to Find Them.

She even posted this cryptic tweet: “cry, foe! Run amok! fa awry! My wand won’t tolerate this nonsense.”

thread in the Harry Potter subreddit was quickly set up to workshop the clue. The redditors discovered that the tweet works as an anagram for, “Harry returns! Won’t say any details now. A week off. No comment.”

PLEASE LET THIS BE REAL!
