I didn’t want to play her as this femme fatale—she was a genuine evangelical with a real religious belief in the Reformation. Anne really influenced the world, behind closed doors. But she’s given no explicit credit because she wasn’t protected. Let’s not forget, too, that history was written by men. And even now, in our post-feminist era we still have women struggle in public positions of power.
Men still have trouble recognizing that a woman can be complex, can have ambition, good looks, sexuality, erudition, and common sense. A woman can have all those facets, and yet men, in literature and in drama, seem to need to simplify women, to polarize us as either the whore or the angel. That sensibility is prevalent, even to this day.Natalie Dormer

witheringghost:

do you ever just kinda wonder what your selling point as a human being or friend is? like, what was the point at which people were like: hey, I’ll keep this human

milajewnis:

but actually plaid button up shirts with the sleeves rolled to the elbows are universally attractive 

rachellephant:

the most important thing to me ever is bi kids knowing that it’s ok to be 10% attracted to women and 90% attracted to men or 10% attracted to men and 90% attracted to women and still feeling ok to identify as bi, and still feeling like their identity is valid, and still feeling like they can lead fulfilling lives with both (or other) genders. like that’s just so fricking important.

padfootdidntdoit:

yeah but once they started dating, imagine how many innuendos they came up with relating to being head girl and head boy “sorry can’t do that i have head duties with my girlfriend” “james is relying on my fantastic head skills - you know, me being head girl and all” “im so tired, head duties kept me awake” “i have it from a superb source that potter is good at his job” “the head girl sure does live up to her title” “james is very fond of his head duties”

daisykettering:

One of my favourite things about Harry Potter is that Harry is such an unreliable narrator, not because he’s lying, but because he was so oblivious, just about anything could be going on under his nose and he wouldn’t even notice. It’s great because it supports basically every headcanon. Like, no, Harry would not have noticed if Sirius and Remus were dating, I know he’s The Chosen One but he’s about as perceptive as a pile of bricks.

The saddest things in the world:

-people forgotten on their birthdays
-old people eating alone
-animals left behind by their humans
