#YESALLWOMEN

wasn’t this the episode where he dressed up as a woman on a bet because he thought women were overreacting?

This show was progressive beyond it’s years

I got half way through the photoset before I remembered this is the one with Shaun in drag

I never watched it, but I already love it

1) I had forgotten how cute Shaun was in drag

2) This show was seriously next-level.  I loved this episode. So much.  Even before I was really cognizant of WHY I loved it so much.  

okay but this also makes me kind of uncomfortable?

Yes I guess it’s a good lesson but if he had been ID’d as a “man in a dress”, this shit would have gotten a LOT more violent a LOT more quickly

y’all should be incredibly grateful that I have teachers who listened and continue to listen to me

because otherwise YOU would be the brunt of 1000+ word posts about literally any number of topics, and we both know you don’t want that

okay but really you guys you should be sending my teachers thank you notes, because they get 1100+ words about my feelings about libraries so you don’t have to

House republicans actually voting to sue Obama due to abuse of executive powers because he extended an Affordable Care Act insurance deadline (i.e. they all decided they were gonna sue him and then sat around a table until they figured out a potential way in) when the AFC has successfully insured 10 million people and has more public approval and actual utility than ever is such comical proof that 225 terrifying idiots have spent so much time hive-minding in a poorly lit office building for the past six years that being paid $200,000 per year to stomp their feet has effectively detached them from any semblance of reality except for the fact that it’s not comical at all it’s very quite sad like really the only thing left to do is call their offices to fart in their phones and hope they height of their idiocy will occur a few weeks before the midterms

also for the record they’re really after limiting the power of the executive order so that the president can’t do anything without congressional approval

let me make something ridiculously clear: the executive order is the only thing getting shit done in this country

like let’s talk about the number of executive orders that are currently helping people versus the number of laws being passed. would the president be using the executive power as often if Congress wasn’t fucking around?

y’all should be incredibly grateful that I have teachers who listened and continue to listen to me

… “You must have shown me real loyalty down in the Chamber. Nothing but that could’ve called Fawkes to you.” That’s the very first thing Dumbledore thanks and praises Harry for. Not for rescuing Ginny, or saving the school from the basilisk, or for keeping Voldemort from coming back, but for loyalty.

Dumbledore judges the people he works with based first and foremost on how loyal they are to him. Not because he thinks he’s all that, but because, as I said, he views people as game pieces, and you can’t have your game pieces acting up, can you? He values his pieces. He wants to advance and protect them. But he doesn’t want them running off beyond his sphere of influence and doing their own thing. I think there’s something very ambiguous about Dumbledore’s habit of seeking out desperate, socially outcast people and doing them one or two huge favors that leave them bound to him for life. Remus, Hagrid and Snape all fit that pattern, and Trelawney and Firenze appear to join the ranks in OOP. It kind of makes me wonder what Dumbledore has done for Fletcher, Moody and Shacklebolt.

…The problem with Sirius is, he’s not loyal to Dumbledore at all; he’s loyal to Harry. From Dumbledore’s point of view, it’s as if he’s playing wizard chess, and one of the knights suddenly decides that he doesn’t care what happens to the king, he’s just going to take care of that little pawn on the left. So Dumbledore does the only thing he thinks he can do — he sticks his recalcitrant knight into a safe, isolated corner of the board and keeps him from making any moves. Perfectly sensible and strategically sound, as long as you don’t expect your game pieces to have any pesky emotions or psychological issue that need to be taken into account.

…Dumbledore’s actions at Hogwarts are another symptom of his general approach. He doesn’t treat it just as a school, but also as an instrument in his strategy. People like Snape, Hagrid and Trelawny — all lousy teachers, in very different ways — are given their jobs as perks, because of their past of future usefulness to the Order, and because it strengthens their bonds of loyalty to Dumbledore.

OTOH, look at Lupin, who is a talented teacher. Why wasn’t he hired before Harry’s third year, especially given the difficulty of finding qualified DADA professors? My theory is that Dumbledore didn’t consider it necessary. As far as he knew, Lupin was already totally loyal simply because Dumbledore had allowed him to attend Hogwarts. There was no need to bribe him with a job. He was hired only when his familiarity with Sirius became an important factor. Once Sirius proved not to be a threat, Lupin was allowed to resign…

This morning I met for coffee with the @nprinterns. And of course, we took a selfie.

Ari is awesome. He even shared his granola recipe!
