Wolves fighting for dominance as a “thing” came from observation of captive packs.  Observation of genuinely wild packs has revealed that it is not, in fact, a “thing.”

Y’hear that, ya shitty modern werewolf writers?

hear that, self-styled “alpha males”?

They weren’t even captive packs, they were a bunch of unrelated wolves shoved together in too-small a space.

So if you’re an ‘alpha wolf’ then you are, in point of fact, not the noble, fierce and imposing leader of a group who respects you, but a scared wild creature with no social support frantically lashing out at strangers to try and gain some semblance of control over a fundamentally uncontrollable environment?
Huh.
That would explain a few things.

We didn’t know that our activism and our peaceful displays would result in guns literally looking down our eyes. Literally looking down our eyes. Guns.
And I had young people who were willing to die. For justice. 
I had a young person — and he’s definitely the example of many young people that I represent who said "I didn’t think I would make it to twenty-one years old so I’m ready to die now. Let’s do it now."

State senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (@MariaChappelleN) speaks on the Senate floor about the events she witnessed in Ferguson, Missouri in the weeks following the execution of Mike Brown. Senator Chappelle-Nadal was one of many protesters tear gassed for three hours without reprieve by the Ferguson PD.
She has been consistent and unrelenting in her criticism of Governor Jay Nixon — to the point of tweeting him “FUCK you, Governor!” — for his lack of action over the violation of citizens’ constitutional right to peacefully protest, and passionately vocal about the violent ways in which protesters were abused by the police.
Full video of Senator Chappelle-Nadal’s speech is available for download here (.wmv format).

u ever just get pissed off that all the marauders were in gryffindor?? or is that like? just me?

like a lot of times i wish i really wish sirius was in slytherin like the rest of his family and overcame the family name. but lets be real he’s more loyal than ambitious, “I WOULD HAVE DIED”. so like stick him in hufflepuff [can you imagine his mother’s face upon hearing that news?]. put peter and is love of those in power and wanting to rise along side them in slytherin. put remus in ravenclaw for the most obvious reasons okay. and leave james, who tried to hold off the dark lord sans wand to give his wife and child a chance to live, in gryffindor.

suddenly you’ve got someone in each house, a view of each house. like whatever this is probably asking a lot since we’re obviously supposed to demonize slytherin or whatever. bUT i always wanted more house diversity in the group u kno. can u imagine them all sneaking in and out of different house common areas. waking up in the wrong ones like ‘oh shit not again’. ravenclaw and puff house members thinking remus and sirius were the cutest couple yet to realize they were a couple.

it’s so weird that men can make endless misogynistic comments and not have to reassure people that they don’t hate women but when women, especially those in the spotlight, talk about things concerning women they feel an overwhelming need to constantly reassure the world that they don’t hate men, that they love men. 

and by weird i mean a cultural norm to demean women and overvalue men.

My favourite translator said that when she was an ambassador for Hungary she took all these Japanese politicians on a tour and she was trying to circumtranslate ‘merry go round’ cause she didn’t know the Japanese word for it by calling it a ‘horse tornado for children’ and they had no blessed idea what she was saying and she finally started running in circles going up and down and they go ‘ohhhhh, in Japan we call those ‘merry-go-rounds’”
