people on here will be like:
"I HATE ROBIN THICKE! HE’S A DISGUSTING,SEXIST,MISOGYNIST PIG THAT SHOULD DIE!!!"
but turn around and go on iTunes like : “♪BECAUSE I’M HAPPYYYYYYYY!!!!♪”
and I’m just like
Now I’m in no way saying Robin should’nt be criticized for the song but i don’t understand why people conveniently forget that there were 2 other people dancing in that video and singing those lyrics.Not to mention Pharrell produced Robin’s whole album blurred lines
Now I’m not exactly sure why people, specifically tumblr, has done this but it just bothers me when people have selective social justice.
if you’re going to crucified one, you have to crucify them all
you know how when you go to a concert or show of some sort and the person on stage is like “HOW’S EVERYONE DOING TONIGHT?!?!?!?!” and the audience cheers back? why? you’re not answering the question, you’re just yelling. imagine if we did that in daily conversation. “hey jeff, how are ya?” and jeff just starts screaming and clapping in your face
Dumbledore, notorious for giving second chances Dumbledore, let Sirius rot in Azkaban for twelve years.
He must have known Sirius well due to his time in the Order, he must have known what James meant to Sirius. Dumbledore was a member of the freaking Wizengamot yet he didn’t fight the Ministry’s horrifying trial-optional policy.
This is a man who took back Death Eater!Snape at his word, shielded him from prison, and employed him at a school for children.
But he didn’t have a use for Sirius, so he didn’t care about him.
I got 99 problems with Dumbledore and his treatment of Sirius Black accounts for like 64 of them.
To be honest, Albus Dumbledore is one of the most disturbing, terrifying characters I’ve ever found in a book, because he thought he was a good guy and so did everyone else and the books don’t really challenge it either (given that Harry forgives him for everything he did), but when you look between the lines he was profoundly, profoundly immoral and unethical.
A couple of months ago, I was talking about HP characters with a friend, and he said that Dumbledore was one of his least favorite characters of all time.
Naturally, this took me back a bit since he’s one of the heroes of the series, misguided as he was at times. Still, I was curious and asked my friend why he hated him. His answer still strikes a chord with me.
"There is never, ever a reason to leave a child in an abusive home. Never."
unless it was a plot device, which this was. i really think some people in fandom take everything that happens in the story way too literally. like if there was a man allowing a child to be abused by his foster parents in real life then yes that is atrocious, but when you’re talking about a character who has motivations that exist purely for the story, that act outside of what we consider morally acceptable for the sake of the plot, then i think people need to rethink some things
