As a queer person of color, I have been told all my life that I will never play the romantic lead, and that’s fucked up. When they say that, what they’re actually telling you is that your love story doesn’t exist.

One of the most sinister things about normalized racism is you don’t have to have bad intentions to be racist, you just have to remain ignorant.
I’d have thought 50,000 years of existing on the continent would have qualified as settled.

Animatus Charm

A perfectly harmless little spell, the Animatus Charm, or Animating Charm, can be used to give a temporary life to small objects, most usual origami or small statuettes.

The spell became popular in the mid-1800’s and has remained relatively popular since, as it can serve multiple purposes. However attempts to use it to make paper darts carry messages long distances didn’t go very well, and the Interdepartmental memos used in the British Ministry of Magic use another charm entirely.

THIS IS WHAT A WORLD LEADER LOOKS LIKE.  
DESMOND TUTU, I OFFICIALLY LOVE YOU.

"I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place," Archbishop Tutu said at the launch of the Free and Equal campaign in Cape Town.
"I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this."
Archbishop Tutu said the campaign against homophobia was similar to the campaign waged against racism in South Africa.
"I am as passionate about this campaign as I ever was about apartheid. For me, it is at the same level," he added.

Snow White and Bambi


Since Snow White is like the Woodland Animal Whisperer I thought she would go great with Bambi!
Who know what sucks? Snow White’s dress’s colors and deer physiology. So Snow White… who the HELL thought it was a good idea to use all primary colors. That was a bitch to incorporate. I originally planned her to be a mage with a staff. But I feel like all my princesses rely on magic in some way so I felt like Snow White can be a badass warrior on her own accord. Bambi, gets a bad rep so I decided to make him… cooler (I hope)
So I decided to maybe do a Disney Cavalry thing. I might come back to this idea later.

And now my dad hides the salt from me…

A few days after the salt line incident, the lights flickered in the kitchen and my dad looked at me and said “don’t you dare. You lost your salt privileges”
