“Whatever the history books tell you, don’t listen to them. Racism has always been present in the Wizarding World, perhaps even more so than the muggle world. It is just the privilege of the white that they don’t have to see it. We don’t have that privilege. 
My initial research has revealed little of where this discrimination came from. Our people have been scrubbed from many of the records. Wizards travel much more than muggles do, but they think anyone they meet with skin darker than their own is “savage” and “uneducated”. They think their magic is better than anyone else’s. 
They insist their Latin and Anglo Saxon spells are better than the Sanskrit spells that I know. They don’t understand that wands were made in Egypt long before white people had their hands on them. Two-way mirrors, flying carpets, astrology. All these things come from the lands these white people label as “backward”. They are so close-minded. 
My father brought me to this country as a child. I was not even five years old. He had wanderlust after my mother had died and a thirst for knowledge. He thought there was much to learn from this small country. And there is! I do love it here. I love the harsh landscape, the mist that descends on the glens, the waves crashing on the rocks at the coast. As much as I long for India, I have fallen in love with this tiny place where my father brought me. This is why I suggested we build the castle near here.
I helped build this school to open young wizards’ and witches’ minds. No child is born racist. That’s what they say. I do believe that most of the time. I want to squash prejudice before it has the chance to take hold in their impressionable minds. I want to broaden their horizons. I want them to explore what they can do, and test and question what they think they know! They shouldn’t just be taught spells from their parents’ lap.
We have taken on such a huge task. These children are in our hands so we spent so long designing the school. It is our pride and joy. I spent hours designing the ever-changing floor plan, the secret passageways and the moving staircases. It inspires our students to be creative too. They can not only explore the castle here, but explore themselves.  
There are two things that press constantly against my mind. One is the future of the school. After we are gone, will the castle fall to ruins? It is my dream for the legacy to last forever: generations of children being educated here. Finding a home, as Godric, Helga, Salazar and I all found. The second, which is much more important, is Salazar’s view on those from muggle families. The others and I are unsettled by him. I can feel the cracks forming in our relationship but I simply cannot let this go. I will not tolerate this kind of discrimination in the heart of the school. Who knows what it will lead to? 
God knows what discrimination has led to in the past. I reverently hope that history will not repeat itself – but humans… we never seem to learn.”

I think that in people’s birthday they should give a medal or trophy something like that to their mother for having successfully overcome hours of pain and blood lost and years of butthurt staying with them through kindergarten and then rebellious phases without losing hope, because sometimes it’s like always rooting for the Starks knowing they would just die one after another.

Also, thousands trophies to my mother for this day 21 years ago she had bravely overcome butchering pain and tons of blood lost and hours that feel like centuries to summon me from the depth of some galaxy pit that could probably another universe or just satan’s lair to this considerably peaceful planet to conquer it or at least its amphibian residents. Something even Edward Alphonse would never be able to achieve.

Toast to mom, may she forever stays with me, with us.

What you see here is the classic self depreciating “nice guy” how dare a woman and her friends dress up all nice and go out to have fun with their friends without giving you, a complete stranger, any play. How dare women dress up and have a good time for themselves and not dress up and slink around for your enjoyment. “Its to feel fucking superior” Well I know its surprising, but chicks don’t always go out clubbing in the hopes of getting sexual action. Maybe they are not attracted to the opposite sex? But that doesn’t matter to you because you think that if you go up to a woman and ask her to dance like “a gentleman” then she is required to grind on you like there is no tomorrow. 

valid reasons for a woman to dress up and go out but reject you:
1. She already has a partner, and just wants to have fun with her friends.
2. She just broke up with her partner and doesn’t want to meet anyone right now.
3. She’s lesbian, asexual, or otherwise not attracted to men.
4. She enjoys fucking random strangers, but not you.
5. She enjoys meeting new people, but you’re a total creep.
6. Literally anything else.

Plus, just think about the reasoning on display in that image. The fact that she spent a lot of money on her outfit and makeup establishes that she owes you something? That’s like arguing that an artist ought to pay you because you looked at her work. It’s Bizarro World logic. I’m not being hyperbolic there; that is literally how logic works on Bizarro World.

The fact that men think women get dolled up only to attract their attention is such nonsense.  Like ever heard of homosocial bonding?  What about homosocial status seeking?  Like crushing a beer can on your head isn’t generally going to impress ladies but you do it to get status with your dude friends.

Just shut up you dreamy ass bastard it’s not like girls have to kneel for your shitty attention they would rather kneel for Loki

“My mother was very much a feminist and I thought it was something right for the moment. I couldn’t care less if people are for or against. It’s my idea.

"No one wants to see curvy women. You’ve got fat mothers with their bags of chips sitting in front of the television and saying thin models are ugly. Fashion is about dreams and illusion." "Florals are for middle-aged women with weight problems.""The body has to be impeccable. If it’s not, buy small sizes and eat less food.""Dress for yourself and the man you love (if there is one). Women dressing to impress other women––forget about that. Forget about that. It’s a very bad way of thinking."

And still there are so many people out there who are still worshiping him like the god of fashion or some similar fucked up title. I’m disgusted by him from his action to his speech AND also his creation, and I’m so agree with the writer that he’s mental. So spread the news. so that everybody know for themselves what kind of person Karl Lagerfeld is.
