if you think that professor mcgonagall didn’t love james potter then let me just explain to you how wrong you are because among james’ many talents he was really fan-fucking-tastic at two things: quidditch and transfiguration and those just happen to be mcgonagall’s favorite things so guess what he may have been a little shit but he was her little shit and you know she loved every minute of detention she had to chaperone with him
I mean, I’m not saying that we can enforce this as law or anything. I also might be wrong about this. But:
Just as a general rule, I feel like we should not look at pictures of the breasts or genitalia of people who would rather we not look at pictures of their breasts or genitalia.
As a corollary to that general rule, I would add that I don’t see anything wrong with looking at pictures of breasts or genitalia of people who have invited us to do so. There seem to be plenty such pictures for us to get a reasonably good grasp of, like, the diversity of unclothed human anatomy without having to look at people who wish we wouldn’t.
This seems pretty straightforward to me. Yes, the photographer(s) who photographed Kate Middleton’s grainy distant breasts were violating her privacy. But so do people who choose to look at those pictures.
So maybe we can just agree not to? And this goes not only for princesses, I would argue, but also for people who send things to their romantic partners, who turn out to be jerks and release those photos publicly. Or people whose phones are hacked. etc.
In this world where most every curiosity can be satiated, it seems to me genuinely heroic to resist the urge to look at everything that can be seen, and instead to respect the wishes of those who feel violated or hurt by the availability of images they wish were private.
Seemed a good day to reblog this.
YES. LET’S. DEAN THOMAS. WHAT A GUY. Muggle-born (sort of). Drew the “Potter for President” banner they made for Harry’s first Quidditch match. Hung up
soccerfootball posters that bothered Ron so much in the dorm and shouted football calls at Quidditch matches. Still supported Harry when his name came out of the Goblet of Fire. Sticks up for Lupin when Umbridge was insulting him and says he was the best teacher they ever had and sided with Harry in his fights against her. Didn’t jump to take sides when Harry claimed Voldemort was back and acted neutral in the fights between Seamus and Harry even though Seamus is his best friend. Didn’t freak out and avoid Harry like the plague when he was having nightmares in fifth year and creepily laughing and flailing in his sleep. Joined Dumbledore’s Army. Wasn’t hostile to Harry or Ginny when they started going out. Fiercely supportive of Harry when he’s on the run in the 7th book, so supportive the Goblins were tired of hearing it. Captured and locked and who knows what else in the Malfoy’s cellar. Made friends with Luna. Helped dig Dobby’s grave and put his hat on him before they buried him. Fought in the battle of Hogwarts…and just….Dean Thomas, man.
what’s the difference between a dirty bus stop and a lobster with breast implants ?
one’s a crusty bus station and one’s a busty crustacean#i’ve told this joke a million times and it NEVER fails
May you have enough money to pay your bills this month with a little extra left over for a bit of fun.
