canon, healthy, non-sexualised lesbians who don’t die
madam you’re going to have to take your radical ideas somewhere else.
You could also pick up Valhalla by Ari Bach and The Girls From Alcyone by Cary Caffrey. Oh and add main character to the list.
i imagine both steve and bucky like to come up with different ways to poke fun at sam every time they pass him during jogging
because they are shitheads
(the first one is a print you can get here)
sloppy comic of an experience with a hot guy. marco feels me
Peggy is the one to get stuck in ice in and survive the century. Pepper doesn’t get rid of Extremis and becomes Rescue. Bruce Banner stays under the radar leaving Betty as the authority in gamma radiation. Jane retains some of the Aether’s powers. Thor is busy ruling Asgard, therefore Sif is the one tasked to retrieve the Tesseract. Director Fury rounds them all up along with Black Widow for his Avengers Initiative and, Barton being compromised, Maria Hill steps up as the marksman of the team.
tldr; the ladies save the world instead
and in that moment, the entire movie theater burst into tears
i think this was the moment that made most of us despise umbridge more than voldemort
most of us?! don’t you mean ALL of us?? I don’t think even Voldemort liked this bitch!
No one likes Umbridge.
I heard, one time, a dementor kissed her and IT died
Voldemort committed genocide, but Umbridge dared to be female while she abused her power.
The point isn’t that Umbridge was worse than Voldemort; it’s that everyone hates her more. And I think it has nothing to do with her being a woman and everything with being the sort of cruel most of us have actually experienced.
I mean, look at Voldemort. He’s basically Wizard Hitler, which is, obviously, an incredibly terrible thing to be. But most people—especially the younger people in Harry Potter’s target audience—have not had their parents murdered by a xenophobic cult leader. Nor have they fought for their lives against giant snakes, been kidnapped for dark rituals, or watched numerous friends die in front of them. Voldemort’s crimes are numerous, but they’re distant and fantastical, like hearing about a serial killer on the news.
But they have had that one teacher who inflicts extra punishments just because they don’t like you. They’ve complained to parents and authorities only to be ignored. They’ve sat through pointless classes and been silenced when they criticize. Umbridge is that teacher we all hated because she made our lives miserable and we were powerless to stop her. And as we grow out of school, there are still people in positions of power who act like her. The manager who denies your schedule requests and penalizes you for invented infractions. That customer who complains to corporate because their scam didn’t work, and the corporate decision to listen to their story. Cops performing illegal searches because they know you don’t have any proof.
Yes, torturing and killing numerous people is worse than terrorizing a handful of schoolchildren, but Voldemort is the bad guy in a fairy tale. Umbridge is personal.
*drops the mic*
Voldemort is the villain we never hope to face.
Umbridge is the villain we face every day.
thank you all-four-cheekbones some people on this website need to realise not everything is a matter of sexism or gender discrimination omg
If it has absolutely nothing to do with her gender, why didn’t we hate Snape nearly as much? Snape who emotionally and verbally ABUSED his students every day for years. Snape who traumatized at least one student so badly that he was the one thing that student feared most in the world.
If this is just about having that “one teacher who inflicts extra punishments just because they don’t like you,” why weren’t we all up in arms over Snape and hating the FUCK out of Snape and still hating Snape, because he did a lot more damage in his years at Hogwarts than Umbridge did in her one.
It’s ok, I’ll wait.
I feel like it’s not gender alone. It’s gender + everyone wants to bone Snape. Though, in defense of the narrative, Snape generally flirted along the line. He didn’t attack other professors, as far as I can remember, and he was somewhat kept in check by the rules of the school and his position there.
Umbridge crossed the line. That scene with Trelawney is what pushed her over the line for me. Being a cruel asshole is one thing (especially in the HP world), but that goes beyond idle sadism. Umbridge seemed dedicated to the cause of huting each and every person as deeply as possible, in a very personal way. I mean, Snape never had someone carve “I must not tell lies” in his own flesh. So there’s a scale thing there.
But yeah, gender is ABSOLUTELY part of it, too.
There is also the fact that Umbridge is never redeemed in the series where Snape is. He is because of his love of Lily, the torment he suffered at the hands of “good” characters, his trying to protect Harry(which we eventually find out about), and his sacrifice in the end. By the end of the book we are given reasons to understand and relate to Snape. He’s what any of us “could become” if we let anger and resentment define us, but his redemption is also a reminder that we’re human and it is possible to come back from our mistakes.
We never get any reasons for why Umbridge is who she is. I honestly resisted disliking her for a long time. I wanted to see the character redeemed in some way or her actions explained… she never was and they never were though.
Let’s play a game.
