#is my dad one of those guys.
got the most enthusiastic group of guys at work today and we were chatting while they waited in line for one of the ships bc they were interested in, like, what rights and social norms did i have as a woman in 1773 (they were delighted that i was being really frank about a lot of stuff)
and one of the guys said something about like “hey man, what’s that thing (idk, someone’s name) calls their gender” and the other one was like “yeah uh ‘fluid’, bro” and he turned to me and was like “yeah in the future where we’re from gender’s all kinds of stuff”
and i was like
“oh, have you gentlemen heard of The Public Universal Friend?”
just so stoked to tell these guys that in the 1770s we ALSO have all kinds of gender stuff

gods i can’t believe i have to make this post but i have gotten enough annoying anons for this to be necessary at this point to just. shut people up
why i hate snape: he’s an abuser. he is abusive. he is manipulative and controlling and he is abusive. hi, i’m an abuse victim!! snape reminds me of my abuser!! why the fuck would i like him?
people who like snape are fine i guess because sure he did have a really shitty “redemption” and some people might think that’s adequate
but if that same “redemption” was given to my abuser? uhhh yeah no, that would not be enough for me to be at all comfortable around him and i would absolutely still have the miles and miles of mental health issues and trauma
i don’t like snape
i really hate snape
people have annoyed me and pressured me and bothered me about this for years, pretty much ever since i first read the books. i didn’t know then why i disliked snape so much, because then i didn’t quite realised that i was being abused and my young mind simply thought snape was like my abuser whom i didn’t like.
i still hate snape
and the anons that i just got for the millionth time asking “do you like snape and why is he the best character” “do you like snape and why is the answer always yes” “isn’t severus snape awesome”
no, no he’s not
