According to the piece, heightened awareness about sexual assault on college campuses and a greater move toward justice for survivors has made some college men’s boners shrink in terror. We are, it seems, meant to feel alarmed at these shrinking boners.

College dudes worried that movement to take rape seriously is ruining their sex lives - Salon.com (via sarahdoesfandom)

Two women were raped in my neighborhood (a street away) in the last week. We get these little campus-wide emails about it. They were both raped four nights apart by two different men. It’s a college town and they were raped right near campus. Both of these women probably just moved into town last week or the week before. We get these reports of their sexual assault but that’s it. There is little to no recourse, these men are going out at night specifically to take advantage of campus traffic. They are stalking these women. I am so so so fucking tired sometimes. I get so tired. And men think they should open their ignorant shithole mouths and complain about how their sex lives are suffering because some women somewhere are finally being respected and heard and their rapes aren’t just silenced, ignored, forgotten. Sometimes I just wish I could kill every fucking man in the world with my bare hands.

The scientific method. Use. Use the scientific method. “We may never know.” Bologna. Use the scientific method.

They don’t have that. They have MAGIC.

Where there are patterns of cause and effect, the scientific method has insight. But if they’d started using it we’d all be aparating on fucking Mars by now.

The scientific method isn’t really a great way to determine “hmm how did this baby not die when all those other people did” because what are you gonna do to prove whatever your hypothesis is? Avada Kedavra at a bunch of babies whose parents love them very much? Good luck finding your test subjects, dude.

They could have done autopsies on the victims of the Avada Kedavra curse, compared to autopsies on people who died of natural causes, eventually isolating the true cause-of-death in the bodies of the victims, and then use this new understanding to create an effective counter-curse without anyone needing to sacrifice their life for their child.

The scientific method could also be used to isolate the composition of Phoenix tears, the process by which they spark perfect cellular regeneration, and then synthesize an artificial version with the same effects, essentially rendering all of medical science obsolete. 

The “can’t be done” and “we may never know” attitude of the wizarding world has seriously limited their ability to progress as a society.

look okay they’re still using medieval quills over pencils, I think cellular regeneration is still many innovations away in the wizarding world

Yeah but they could make all of those leaps in like a week if they used the scientific method. Bring in like, ten muggle scientists, get them to analyze the shit out of everything, then send them home with some extra spending money and fabricated memories of a science conference out-of-town

#ravenclaws.. #whaat a ravenclaw…

Don’t get it mixed up. I’m not just advocating science for the sake of better understanding. I’m a slytherin, so I’m looking for practical applications for the knowledge gained through use of the scientific method. 

For example, why is the wizarding world still effectively using carrier pigeons? Sirius Black demonstrated that instantaneous communication is possible via the floo network, so why not fill cigarette lighters with floo powder? This would not only be the wizarding equivalent of a cell phone, but would also allow streamline the process of creating entryways into the floo network.

There are people, like Tonks, who can rewrite their own genetic code with a thought. There are people, like McGonagall, who can completely change species and retain human cognition. There are potions, like Polyjuice, that rewrite your genetic code temporarily, replicating both a person’s nature and nurture. They’ve naturally perfected genetic engineering, but their understanding of how these processes work has left them completely unable to apply it practically.

For example, if they did a little bit of research and development, they could isolate the genes that allow for magical abilities, replicate the process by which Polyjuice Potion works, and synthesize a new potion that allows people like Filch, who were born squibs but desperately want to be wizards, to drink a little bit of potion every day so they’re able to use magic. 

Or, if they isolate the genes that allow Tonks and Teddy to rewrite their genetic code at will, as well as the process by which animagi are able to retain their human consciousness while in an animal body, they could easily create an effective treatment for lycanthropy that allows werewolves like Lupin to control the shift between man and wolf and retain control of themselves while in wolf form. 

Additionally, if they did research on what contagion causes lycanthropy, they would be so much closer to creating a vaccine that makes it significantly less communicable. 

i love when the harry potter fandom gets all sciency

I think we all, I think all of us, want to feel something that we’ve forgotten or turned our backs on because maybe we didn’t realize how much we were leaving behind. We need to remember what used to be good. If we don’t, we won’t recognize it even if it hits us between the eyes.

This commercial is amazing.

I work at an Under Armour store and we got to see this commercial way before they showed it on TV and everyone was speechless except one dude. He was all like “What the hell? Why the fuck would they make a ballet commercial? It’s not a sport.” My boss was quick to jump down his throat and said “Alright then get your ass on the floor and work on you tippy toes for the rest of your shift. If I fucking see you off them you will be the first of the temps to get cut!” He was on his tippy toes for the last hour and a half of his shift lol
