Me watching Rio 2: The Spix Macaw’s natural habitat is the Caatinga, not the Amazon. The climate and flora in both is COMPELTELY different. 

Me watching Rio 2: That flight is silly. At least rheas do live in the cerrado.

Me watching Rio 2: They should be eating buriti nuts, not brazilian nuts

Me watching Rio 2: Pretty sure those fast rivers/falls don’t really exist in the Amazon

Me watching Rio 2:  Did you know macaws have four toes but the design team left one out for simplicity/streamlining?

Conclusion: Don’t take me to these movies unless you wanna discuss nerd/biology stuff XD

AU where Harry is brought up by Sirius and Remus.


Harry swaggering into Hogwarts at age 11.Harry trying to lean back in his chair like he’d seen Sirius do.Harry knowing all the secret passage ways in his very first year itself.Harry knowing the perfect hexes for Malfoy.Harry pretending to be really embarrassed by Remus teaching them in 3rd year, but secretly feeling delighted when he finds the rest of his class thinks he’s the coolest teacher they’ve had.Harry getting howlers from Sirius announcing the next Weird Sisters concert.Harry fiercely defending werewolves.And most importantly, Harry who is happy and loved. Harry who has someone to go home to. Harry who has someone to talk about his teenage woes to. Harry who grew up knowing what wonderful, brave people his parents were.





And that sound is my heart shattering into a million pieces. 

Harry would have grown up being a lot more like James.
Oh my god I just broke my own heart.

oh gods he wouldand then one day Sirius would slip up and call him James…..

On April 8, the Philippine Supreme Court upheld a controversial new law that, among other things, would provide free contraceptives to poor women. The ruling is seen as a significant blow to the Catholic Church, which fought hard against the legislation for 15 years. Officially known as the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act, this legislation guarantees universal access to modern contraception methods, sex education, and maternal care.

President Benigno Aquino III defied the powerful Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines and ignored threats of excommunication when he signed the law in December 2012. But before it could take effect, church-backed opponents filed a legal challenge, arguing that most forms of contraception other than church-approved “natural” methods or abstinence are tantamount to abortion, which is forbidden by the Constitution in this overwhelmingly Catholic country.

This week, after deliberating for more than a year, the judges ruled unanimously that the RH Law, as it is called in the Philippines, is “not unconstitutional.”

The unanimous verdict was a surprise. All indications were of a closely and bitterly divided court. But recognizing the profound importance of the case in the Philippines, the 15 justices, it appears, may have reached their own compromise by agreeing to a unanimous decision, but rejecting some parts of the law that most offended the church. (The court tossed out several provisions imposing criminal sanctions against individuals and groups that refused to provide family planning services on religious grounds as well as nullified a provision that would have given minors access to contraceptives without parental consent.)

The Bishops’ Conference, which is accustomed to wielding great influence in most spheres of public life, made the best of what was clearly a disappointment, saying the court had “watered down" the RH Law. But people on the frontlines of the struggle against poverty in the Philippines were elated by the court’s decision.

"I think it is a total victory for the Filipino people. The elimination of certain provisions, we can live with," said Esperanza Cabral, former secretary of the Department of Health and an advocate of the law.

WOMEN: don’t be successful - you might hurt a man’s feelings. #sexism #wtf #heteronormativetoo #whataloadofbollocks

After reading this, this is all I am going to try to do. To succeed.
And they say male privilege doesn’t exist? How about instead of telling women to stop trying to be successful and you know achieve their dreams (GOD FORBID WOMEN TRY TO BE SUCCESSFUL AND ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS) how about teaching men and boys that women are human beings and they should stop throwing a tantrum about women succeeding.
The kind of man who will be intimidated by my success is exactly the kind of man I don’t want.

this is an exact representation of what patriarchy does to men. and the exact reason why feminism is still so important; printed publications are still telling us not to “outdo” our men for fear that they will get their itty bitty baby manly feelings hurt.
i make a pledge to never ever ever ever downplay my successes because some dickface is feeling sorry about himself.
i also pledge to never date a man who would be happier when i fail than when i excel. f that noise.
