Done and done.

(Not pictured: “Butt window”, but trust me, it’s there.)

You have no idea how much this cheered me up just now.

I for one, think this is a major improvement. Look how empowered he is! And it’s relevant to the character as someone who is powered by the sun, he’d want to maximize the amount of sunlight he receives, right? It’s not like it makes sense for him to cover himself from chin to toe.
In fact, I think some strappy sandals might be an improvement.

strappy high heeled sandals would increase his height making him closer to the sun. and if wonderwoman can fight in heels it can’t be that hard, right?

SO EMPOWERING

Felt a dire need to contribute to the hilarity.

Now I can tell right away he’s a strong male character. Whew! No more confusion.

And I’m not even that into superheroes, but: gosh, this post.

is it wrong that I would totally read superman if he wore this costume?

Trans Guys | Bind Kinder 
The use of ace bandages for binding is not only extremely uncomfortable, its dangerous. Ace bandages contract around the ribcage, not allowing your ribcage to expand as you breathe, furthermore, putting you at risk for deformed ribs from prolonged use, as well as broken rib bones. Always use a binder, which is specifically designed for binding and shaping the chest. Can’t afford a binder? contact Aydian Dowling at point5ccclothing@gmail.com and get a binder for nothing more than the cost of shipping. 

for my brothers in need

Things I wish I’d known in high school. Guys seriously the ace bandages can do some serious damage, don’t do it. Huge thanks to whoever is at that email taking care of folks so kindly.

Boosting for this wonderful person’s email.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE spread this information and STOP DRAWING FANART/CREATING MEDIA THAT PORTRAYS USE OF ACE BANDAGES because not all trans people know this and will attempt to bind in dangerous ways if not given alternative methods!!

I mixed the last page of the epilogue (read by the amazing Stephen Fry) with Leaving Hogwarts, changed the levels and unfortunately to make it fit, cut some bits out. But yes. This is what it sounds like.

My dear Claudia, please tell me you found this and are sobbing your eyes out right now…

I got chills. I have goosebumps. I am crying. And I’m not just saying that. I am literally crying.

did she get a haircut

does it make anyone else uncomfortable that they changed her entire race because she went out with Ron in their sixth year
isn’t that what happened???
they changed a character’s entire race because she as a character became important and relevant for a short amount of time

Wow.

Umm, no. They did not change her entire race simply because she dated Ron. Actually think about it. Up until the sixth book, she was a background character that was only ever mentioned in passing, so she wasn’t given a physical description. Then in the sixth book, Lavender was finally described, as having ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’. Well, the first few Harry Potter movies came out before the Half-Blood Prince book did, so the casting directors did what they wanted with the character. 
Another thing, the Lavender Brown from the first few movies only appeared in the first few movies. Lavender didn’t even appear in the 4th and 5th movies, because again, she was a background character, and wasn’t vital to the story. The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books, and it didn’t fit what the directors had, so they had to recast her. It was not because she dated Ron.

Somebody spread this shit because I refuse to have this turn into some social justice bullshit

Because it would have been the end of the world for her to not match the book, right?
I mean, Movie Harry definitely has green eyes and hair sticking up everywhere, and Movie Hermione is plain and bushyhaired.


….huh. Almost like that JUST BEING FAITHFUL TO THE BOOK argument is horseshit.

Basically, in the early books she was a background character, so it didn’t matter what race she was. Then in the sixth book, when she suddenly had a more prominent role, the producers’ minds automatically jumped to thinking of her as white, because white = default.
So not just because she went out with Ron, but yes, it does have to do with racism.

THIS

see, thing is, when I read the books, I had always imagined her as being black too - to the point where I didn’t even notice the books’ description of her, simply because it didn’t fit with how I had imagined her. it was actually quite a shock to see her portrayed by a white actress in the films, and I had to go back and check the books to see how she was described.
this is something that bothered me as well - that in the first few movies Lavender Brown was portrayed by a black actress, then in the final few films she was portrayed by a white actress. I get that it’s how she was described in the books, but it still seems kind of odd - especially considering that it seems like quite a few readers imagined her as a black character.
