“And it upsets me that as I record this video #wewillalwayssupportyoujustin is trending on twitter. I wish all the people who were tweeting that right now would be forced to send a tweet to explain to Katie’s family in 140 characters or less why they would quote always support someone who would do something as fundamentally selfish as driving drunk.”

Josh, as always, hits the nail directly on the head.
some new stuff I’m working on, I get tons of anonymous messages like this every day and while this isn’t unique to women, the content of the messages and the frequency in which I get them are definitely related to my gender. I almost exclusively get them after I post selfies. The authority people feel they have to share their opinion on my appearance is something myself and many other girls online deal with daily.
Just for a moment, can we appreciate how great Filch is?
- He’s a Squib so has to remove any mess with his bare hands
- People call him a Squib and said in a nasty way like the same kind of tone used for Muggleborns as if he has a choice in the matter, as if he chooses to be a Squib. He doesn’t, that’s just him being him
- He doesn’t really have any friends apart from a cat, no wonder his shock and horror at her getting Petrified
- And in case you didn’t realize, Hogwarts is frickin’ huge!!! And he has to look after all of it, just him and his cat. And even then, he’s patrolling the corridors at night too (when does he sleep?!?!) No wonder he’s annoyed with the pupils. And also, he’s trying to do his job as the responsibility’s all on him and then he has to worry about Peeves. No wonder, he’s bitter.
I just feel he gets a bad reputation when we should feel bad for Filch. Poor Filch.
It’s good to see many people agree. Look at those notes go.
#He was also a grumpy old man#who looked back on the glory days when detention meant hanging students by their tumbs from the dungeon#and who was cruel to students for fun #and never trusted anyone #ever#except umbridge #who he had a major hard on for#because people were scared of her even though they hated her#and he looked up to her #because students listend to her and were terrified#he wanted that all the time #yeah #i really feel bad for filch
