 #IS THAT HANNAH ABBOTT  #OH I AM SO HAPPY  #YES IF THIS GIRL CAN APPRECIATE MY BBY NEVILLE WHEN HES TORN APART BY A MONSTER BOOK WHEN HES THIRTEEN THEN YES  #SHE CAN MARRY HIM

YAY. (she looks completely different in all the films BUT….)

Also, can I just say that even if it’s not Hannah, it still makes a weird amount of sense? I mean, I feel like a lot of Hufflepuff girls would’ve been attracted to (and/or friends with) Neville. He’s hard-working, plays by the rules (when he feels it’s in everyone’s best interest), and is just generally a nice guy.

Puffs would’ve known how great Neville was before anybody else.

Dear Work,

Thanks for following me home and making my day off shitty and pretty unproductive thus far.

New Comic!

Apparently now that I’m not in school anymore I’m all about giant long-form comics. 

Identity is a really important topic to me, and the trope of ‘finding yourself’ is almost as problematic and insulting to me as the trope of ‘coming out’. 

I want to destroy the idea that some identities are less valid than others, the condescension that comes with ‘they’re just figuring themselves out’, and the insulting dismissal of identity exploration and performance in youth as being somehow not ‘real’, or as ‘attention seeking’. Fuck all of that. 

And beyond the fact that  ’inconsistent’ identities are really challenging socially, they ALSO carry these real, actual life and liberty risks; we’re expected to use the same name, orientations, values, languages, and identities across all aspects of our lives, we are expected to have normative identities that can be quantified and qualified and trust me, TRUST ME  when a person is perceived as having inconsistent or unusual identities they are being flagged in all sorts of systems for extra scrutiny and action. I know this from experience. 

So, yeah, this ‘one true identity’, this ‘finding yourself’, this ‘who is the real you’ stuff is bullshit. We are so, so much more interesting than that, and we deserve better.

This is very important to me as someone whose identity has changed a lot over the years - and I don’t just mean gender or sexuality, I mean everything. I am a totally different person than I used to be, and the world can’t really handle that. I’m not interested in my “profession” the way I used to be, and want to do something else. My hobbies has changed, dress sense, opinions on things like piercings, smoking, alcohol. Everything changes. Get over it.

This is amazing.

Related sidenote, sexual behavior doesn’t always match up with sexual behavior and gender expression doesn’t always match up with gender identity.

You can like having sex and still be asexual. You can only date dudes and still be bi. You can wear skirts and still be a boy. You can have a haircut typically associated with boys and still be a girl.

There’s no “gold star” anything.
