can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda

and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind

and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move


Sometimes I get huffy about tumblr but then I see that 260,000 people got the same kind of chills I did reading this…

I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

“Research studies commonly used all-male subjects. Men with abnormal test results were treated far more aggressively than women with the same results. Women reporting the same symptoms as men were at least twice as likely to receive — no surprise here — a psychiatric diagnosis.”

The Woman’s Heart Attack

Women’s heart attack symptoms are very different than men’s. So for decades and decades, women having heart attacks are diagnosed with psychiatric diagnoses rather than the correct diagnosis of a heart attack. Not coincidentally, women are much more likely to die from heart attacks. Today, some of these gender differences are known, but many doctors still don’t recognize them, and few patients know about them. And basically nothing is known about gender and heart attack symptoms in trans people.

I have experienced what both I and the doctor on call thought HAD to be appendicitis and the first question I was asked in the ER was “Don’t you think you’re just having a panic attack?” and “Do you have a history of anxiety?”

this also happens on webmd. If you’re a woman and you put in your demographic info, “anxiety” and other psychiatric issues show up before physical illnesses even if you’ve put in things that are, as above^ primarily symptoms of heart trouble or other very serious, urgent conditions

Protesters are angry about these strange negotiations to release protesters. What kind of practice is this?

If you see any youtube channel with Night Vale episodes, especially one with ads, please report it. None of the money is going to the crew and it’s completely unfair.

Those people who constantly reblog your stuff but you never really talk:


I do notice my regulars. You guys are the best.

"Regulars" makes me feel like a bar-tender…

Wiping down my dash at the end of an evening, I see your read-more, over-hear your rant in the tags, so I pour you a drink.

"…what’s troubling you, kid?"

I’ve made up personalities for you based on what you reblog/like. I like you guys.

mentally ill people are as prone to using abuse tactics as anyone else but let’s not pretend that painting an entire subset of people with a higher need of support as abusers for not meeting neurotypical standards of self-sufficiency isn’t designed to cut them off from the avenues of assistance they depend on lmao
