….is it just me or does the porno version outfit not only look WAY BETTER crafted and prettier, the actress also has more muscles, a nicer fitting chest piece and a waaay more fitting body type and skin tone.
Also the porno version doesn’t look more “feminine”/more sexy whatever.
That… is EMBARASSING
the “official” one looks like a really bad Halloween costume
I mean fuck the porno one has bigger wrist cuff I REPEATE: BIGGER WRIST CUFFS PORNO WOMAN IS BETTER DRESSED TO KICK ASS *cries*
can someone contact the designer of the porno
clearly he/she knows how a womans body works.
It’s embarrassing when the official looks a like a porn and the porn looks like the official thing.
The thing that makes me stunned the most is that even the boobs of the porn version are cupped and held in better by her clothing than those of the official thing…
The moment a porn movie treats the boobs of a woman with more subtlety than a big name production, some staff changes are in order.
Meanwhile at Marvel, Black Widow wears appropriate ass kicking attire, Thor is a woman and Captain America is black and DC is over there like: what do we do with *whispers* boob?
seee stellalovesbones that ´s what I meant yesterday
True gender equality is actually perceived as inequality. A group that is made up of 50% women is perceived as being mostly women. A situation that is perfectly equal between men and women is perceived as being biased in favor of women.
And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”
My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part.
The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.
and in that moment, the entire movie theater burst into tears
i think this was the moment that made most of us despise umbridge more than voldemort
most of us?! don’t you mean ALL of us?? I don’t think even Voldemort liked this bitch!
No one likes Umbridge.
I heard, one time, a dementor kissed her and IT died
Voldemort committed genocide, but Umbridge dared to be female while she abused her power.
The point isn’t that Umbridge was worse than Voldemort; it’s that everyone hates her more. And I think it has nothing to do with her being a woman and everything with being the sort of cruel most of us have actually experienced.
I mean, look at Voldemort. He’s basically Wizard Hitler, which is, obviously, an incredibly terrible thing to be. But most people—especially the younger people in Harry Potter’s target audience—have not had their parents murdered by a xenophobic cult leader. Nor have they fought for their lives against giant snakes, been kidnapped for dark rituals, or watched numerous friends die in front of them. Voldemort’s crimes are numerous, but they’re distant and fantastical, like hearing about a serial killer on the news.
But they have had that one teacher who inflicts extra punishments just because they don’t like you. They’ve complained to parents and authorities only to be ignored. They’ve sat through pointless classes and been silenced when they criticize. Umbridge is that teacher we all hated because she made our lives miserable and we were powerless to stop her. And as we grow out of school, there are still people in positions of power who act like her. The manager who denies your schedule requests and penalizes you for invented infractions. That customer who complains to corporate because their scam didn’t work, and the corporate decision to listen to their story. Cops performing illegal searches because they know you don’t have any proof.
Yes, torturing and killing numerous people is worse than terrorizing a handful of schoolchildren, but Voldemort is the bad guy in a fairy tale. Umbridge is personal.
*drops the mic*
Voldemort is the villain we never hope to face.
Umbridge is the villain we face every day.
thank you all-four-cheekbones some people on this website need to realise not everything is a matter of sexism or gender discrimination omg
Now, if you want to question the sexism aspect, read that third paragraph (“But they have had that one teachers…”) and think about how much of that applies to Snape.
That’s a much more valid comparison of treatment for Umbridge than Voldemort.
I’m with you on that. There is sexism involved to some level if you compare Umbridge/Snape. We could argue that Snape’s abuse gradually increased over time and it started when Harry was too young to really comprehend it. Umbridge showed up when he was older and more understanding of her true nature and she was pretty evil from the start. But these differences don’t amount to much to me. There are only two plausible explanations for the differences in how readers perceived these characters; one being male/female authority biases and the other being that people inherently wanted to forgive Snape and felt more empathy towards him b/c of his backstory.
Regardless, they were both teachers who abused power and abused their students in very vicious evil ways. Snape might have had a slight redemption in the end whereas Umbridge did not, Snape’s actions towards his students are still unforgivable and he should be considered very similar to Umbridge.
Snape is also presented as the classic bully (who we all know never wins) from the start when Hogwarts was a magic place where nothing bad happens and if it does they just laugh it off or grudge through their punishment and learn their lesson at the end of the day like on Hannah Montana. Umbridge, on the other hand, came in at a time when things were already super duper shitty. Dumbledore was gone, no one was believing Harry about Voldemort, the ministry was doing the best they could to shut him up or make him look like a fool, and all the while Umbridge isn’t only being a total bitch about everything, but she also controls much much more of the school than just the dungeon where potions class is held.
Also if you take into consideration that Snape was really only mean because a. it’s sort of a tradition for Slytherin and Gryffindor to hate each other and b. because Harry is the reason the “love of his life” is dead. Even though his relationship with her was fucked up and he was a total creep but we’re not talking about that. We’re talking about Umbridge.
So why was Umbridge so awful to everyone? Who even knows? Honestly it just seems like she did it because she genuinely thought she was right. And that’s terrifying. That’s even more like Hitler than Voldemort. (at least in that aspect).
Plus, Snape never really did anything to physically harm the children. Yeah he was rude and unfair and a total asshole, but Umbridge literally filled the Great Hall with underage kids and forced them to carve their punishment into the backs of their hands. That’s so many levels of fucked up.
Basically, Snape is a shitty teacher for one class out of a whole school of joy and sunshine and rainbows. He was like that mostly because he was upset that Lilly died, and all he did was get sassy and rude oh and kill the headmaster but you know whatever.
Umbridge, however, took a super terrible situation and made it a billion times worse. She seriously thought she was justified in everything she did, and she was not only rude and sassy and mean but she also physically hurt the students and deprived them of the education they actually needed (which, obviously, Snape didn’t.)
Conclusion: They both bad. Umbridge is worse.
I don’t see how physical and emotional abuse are not equal. They are equally bad and damaging.
