Why does no one ever talk about Andromeda Tonks I mean she was a pure-blood Slytherin in the Black family and she still chose to marry a muggle born despite being disowned and then she raised one of the most badass witches in all of existence and joined the Order of the Pheonix and when her husband, daughter and son-in-law all died in the war, she stepped up and helped raise Teddy seriously that woman was a fucking hero.
So I was in line at the grocery store earlier, and there was an older lady in line behind me. She saw that I was wearing a bracelet with rainbow on it. She then asked me if I was gay, which I replied no. She then told me to take the bracelet off because it’s for “faggots.” To that I say, “Well I happen to like ‘faggots’.” Then the cashier heard the conversation and told the woman that that particular register was for faggots only, and asked her to leave. The woman said that she wanted to speak to the manager. The manager came and guess what, he was gay.
Lets just say the woman left without her groceries.
dude best thing I read all night
Undermining homophobic grandmas seems to be its own subset of awesome Tumblr stories.
One metaphor I find particularly demonstrative of asexuality is as follows: for people who experience such attractions, sexual intimacy is akin to water and air. It isn’t a want so much as it is a necessity. To be without is to be acquainted with suffering (and also possibly death). As for those who feel none of these urges, it’s more like a plate of… pancakes. I like pancakes, but there is no overwhelming urge telling me that I must eat them. I might, for example see other more appetizing things to consume—or, I might not be hungry at all, opting instead to take a hike or draw or read or watch TV. If such a free and metaphoric meal were to be placed in my hands, I would find no reason not to eat some
…But, ultimately, a lack of pancakes in my life will not cause me suffering (or possibly death).

I ACCIDENTALLY SEARCHED “SORNIC THE HEDGEHOG”
An Englishman, a Frenchman, a Spaniard and a German are all standing watching a street performer do some excellent juggling. The juggler notices that the four gentlemen have a very poor view, so he stands up on a large wooden box and calls out, “Can you all see me now?”
