That awkward bi moment
when your mother tells you she thinks that bi people need to “pick a side” and that it’s not real. Forever leaving you silenced and afraid to come out and scared to death if you ever date the same gender and have to introduce your partner.

It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.
I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.
This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.
Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.
My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.
I’d never even considered this but I support it
I have seriously always wondered about this. I mean, most malls and such here have “family” rest rooms with change tables but I mean I have watched many a father bring his child out to the car to change because they don’t have rest room access. I am SO glad this is a post!!

Sirius totally knowing Remus’ middle name is John but whenever he breaks out the full name he’ll throw in ridiculous middle names like
"Of COURSE he got a perfect score on the Charms exam, HE’S REMUS THADDEUS LUPIN"
"REMUS MICHELANGELO LUPIN, I AM SURPRISED AT YOU"
“Fuck, Remus Elizabeth Lupin—”
h/h/r’s friendship with Hagrid is my favourite part of the whole dang series
It was the first time I really learned that fostering relationships actually takes a lot of work on your part, and you have to make time to go see the person and maybe do things you don’t necessarily like because you care about them, which is a totally foreign concept to a 12-year-old whose friends are just whoever is closest and most readily available.
