Sad picture, but not sad post. My friend from uni posted a link on Facebook: If Hermione Granger Were the Main Character in "Harry Potter".
Very compelling read (with images) in which Hermione takes No Shit, gives Zero Fucks, and tackles The Patriarchy (really truly), with tips of the hat to 'boss witch' Professor McGonagall (of course) and Ginny Weasley. (Molly too but I ignored that part because if a trope calls out a trope it's a double-negative and means the opposite, and the opposite of 'there' is 'not there', so there it's not.)
No really though it's hilarious. References to hashtag activism, some of the current goings-on in online feminist culture, calls out Dumblebore and Weasles and The Boy Who Lived But Died But Lived Again on some bullshittery and privilege...
It made me laugh. See what you think.
(This may be a posty day from me; I want to get up my resolutions and things. We'll see what happens after I manage to run some errands out in the cold: 22ºF/-5.6ºC yaaay... At least it's in the 20s? Serious scarf weather. Perhaps I should wear my Hufflrpuff scarf--and no that's not a typo, I have a cheap 'house scarf' that says Hufflrpuff, clearly not made by a Ravenclaw.)
n. A mental diversion to retreat from unpleasant realities through fantasy.
