What if Charlie Weasley is asexual? Like what if when his brothers were going through puberty and getting crushes on girls and just obsessing over them, Charlie was just like, “Guys. DRAGONS.”

J.K. Rowling confirms it here.

mmm that’s all very well but is it really so much to ask for some ACTUAL representation? Not a dig at J.K. specifically, but off-hand the only character I can think of in any mainstream media who is actually definitively identifiably asexual is Sheldon from fucking Big Bang Theory (and it seriously hurts my geeky asexual physicist soul that he is the best representation I’ve got coz lol no ¬_¬). Sure there are a few others who could be read that way but more often than not they’re ace/aro by lack of relationship rather specifically identifying that way, which means it’s likely going to be missed by anyone who isn’t looking (or in many cases desperately searching) for it. Not saying every non-heterosexual character needs to outright state their sexuality or anything, but would it really be so difficult to throw in the odd comment or conversation that more than vaguely hint at the possibility that a character might not be interested in sex/romance/relationships in general. If the writer has to specifically tell people after everything is finished that “by the way this character is [minority]” I don’t see that as representation.

And incidentally, idk if it’s just me being on the defensive but was I the only one bothered by the “No, Dumbledore is gay” comment? It just came across to me as basically saying you can only have one character per minority group :\

don’t trust anyone who says something biphobic then when you call them out on it they say “i don’t mean real bisexuals. just the fake bicurious ones”.

Pro Tip: Actually there is no such thing as "fake" bisexuals. There are instead a lot of questioning people, worried people, closeted people, scared people, confused people, all sorts of people … and these are all perfectly normal things to be. Remember, there is no wrong way to be bisexual.

Aiya Van Kooten everyone

When Aiya Van Kooten stood face-to-face with a burglar in her bedroom, her left eye twitched, then she went into “predator mode”.
“I screamed at him… jumped off my chair, leaped over my bed and sprinted after him down the stairs,” she said.
http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/8626910/Predator-mode-scares-off-burglars

This is the best story of my life

“Although she was the only one home, Van Kooten said she had no regard for her safety - instead, she said she was just overwhelmed with “rage“….. ummmmm Hero!!! 

Haha, badass Muslim woman. Love it!!!

This lady is so awesome. She lives with her grandma and was studying and had a towel on her head and no shoes but she chased them out of her garden, kicked one up the arse as he climbed a fence, they dropped a camera and laptop, she flagged down a passing driver to help her continue the pursuit, and it turned out he was ex-military, and they finally caught one of them in a park and pinned him as the police arrived. Now she’s going to visit the burglar in prison for the next few months to help with his rehabilitation.
So in summary:
This lady doesn’t just defend her home and loved ones, she will hunt you down, team up with other skilled individuals, get you put away, and then teach you the consequences of your actions until you’re a valuable member of society once more.
Seriously she’s a frigging superhero.

literal hero

"I’ve always been a big fan of romance, and I think this story kind of captured the idea of meeting somebody and then an unexpected, unintentional night, unfolding in a really pure manner." (x)

No you don’t understand how frustrated I am that we always depicted the Apostles as old men, especially when it comes to during-Jesus-alive stuff.

They were probably late teens to early 20s, given the time and the description and some Biblical passages.

They were not ancient old men with long ass beards and wrinkles at the Last Supper.

They were young adult rebels with a cause.

where my punk-rock apostles at

And none of them were WHITE.
