"According to Rowling, Dumbledore never did anything about Snape’s behaviour in class because ‘Dumbledore believes there are all sorts of lessons in life… and horrible teachers are one of them’.”
ah yes … horrible teachers …. I mean, everyone gets a teacher who is so horrible to you that, despite the fact that you’ve seen your parents after they’ve literally been tortured into insanity by pain, he is your greatest fear. just your average horrible teacher
Dumbledore never did anything about Snape because Snape’s favoritism bought the trust and favor of the children of Dumbledore’s political opponents so he could fucking spy on them. Snape could read people’s minds, and demonstrably preyed on children without remorse. You can’t tell me Dumbledore wasn’t letting Snape run as wild as he liked in exchange for keeping track of the secrets and private thoughts of potential Death Eater kids. Snape had a ton of leverage in that situation because Dumbledore was too paranoid about missing another Tom Riddle—and it all came to nothing anyway, as his deranged game-playing and prejudices ultimately drove the whole house into Voldemort’s arms anyway during the final battle.
What a pair of dicks.
Why say “ding dong you are wrong” when you could say “eggs and bacon you’re mistaken”

so hey fun fact for anyone who wants queer history trivia: the first disco in Seattle was opened in 1973 and was a gay bar called “shelly’s leg” and it was named after a dancer named shelly who lost her leg in a confetti cannon accident and used the insurance/lawsuit settlement money to open a gay disco.
a) This is such a fantastic story that I wouldn’t care if it were made up, except that
do not underestimate my love of patrick and his sass.
i didn’t realize growing up meant dying inside but hey it’s whatever
when u excited about something and ur friend isnt
the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this
because fifteen dollars an hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve
^That commentary is very important.
Minimum wage is basically your boss saying “if I could pay you less, I would”
