Rubeus Remus Potter. You were named after the only two people at Hogwarts who seemed to give shit about me, because come on who else would I name you after? A verbally abusive dickbag who was in love with my mum and gave me shit all my life and someone who convinced a bunch of children that they needed to be soldiers? What kind of awful aspirations would that make you end up having? Come on son I’m not an idiot…

this is such a great article! 

“It’s cognitive dissonance,” explains Rebecca. “When somebody says ‘I love animals, they’re so cute, here’s a picture of a cow I’m going to reblog’ and then they go home and eat a cheeseburger. These men don’t make the connection between ‘I call myself a feminist and I say positive things about women’ to ‘I treat women like shit’.”

“It’s because these guys are emotionally stunted,” suggests Rebecca. “They’ve never lived a day in the real world or worked a real job. They’ve got the brain of a 15 year old – which isn’t helped by the fact teenage girls adore them – and they don’t know how to be grown-up or have grown-up relationships. All they know is how to be powerful and dominating over someone else, and they think that’s love. That’s their idea of a relationship.

“No ramifications, no responsibilities, no thinking about other people’s feelings or the consequences of their actions. That’s what it’s like when you’re 15 and have a crush at school,” she continues. “I’m not going to make any excuses for any person whose over the age of 18, but acts like they’re 14, in high school, crushing on a minor, manipulating them, gossiping about them, trying to coerce them into sex. That’s disgusting at any age. But once you’re an adult, you need to take responsibility for your actions, and behave in a mature way when it comes to sex.”
