we need to destroy the notion that lily wasn’t sensitive or vulnerable, that she was always on top of her game and had her shit together and was the best at keeping her composure, bc that wasn’t the case. in nearly every scene we see her in she’s crying, and her emotional openness is what’s so beautiful about her tbh.
- mirror of erised; smiling at harry and crying
- godrics hollow; pleading for harry’s life and crying
- prince’s tale; angry at petunia’s remarks and crying
- sirius’ letter; admits she cried all evening after hearing the news about the mckinnons
why don’t we see more of this lily in fandom? this utterly human lily who is so raw and consumed with emotion and who is never afraid to let it all out; who has every reason to be emotional and is never ashamed of it. she is a strong female character because of her femininity and her tendency to be emotional. destroy the notion that females can’t be both, destroy it.
I have a few copies of “Playboy” from the 1970s stashed away somewhere. One of them has a letter where a guy writes in saying, “I met this really gorgeous, sweet woman, and we were planning to get married, but she sat me down yesterday and told me that she had a sex change before she met me. Mr. Hefner, should I marry someone who used to be a man?” and the response was, “So she had a sex change, big whoop. Would you be asking this question if she’d made any other change in her life before she met you? You love the woman she is now, and that’s all that should matter. If you want kids you can adopt or something.”
I feel so conflicted right now
Do you guys SERIOUSLY not know that Hugh Hefner is super respectful of women and doesn’t play around with peoples misogynistic bullshit?
just because you want to be surrounded by hot ladies 24/7 doesn’t mean you’re a douchebag
not being a douchebag is the best way to be surrounded by hot ladies 24/7
Should also be noted, from watching The Girls Next Door, the Playmates decide on everything they do. All photoshoots and all the spreads in the magazines and calendars are their ideas and their doing. Hef is only there to give his stamp of approval.
None of those girls do things they don’t want to do, and he’s supportive of whatever.
i actually love this man
bexlogic aww service dogs are awesome. Can’t begin to stress how awesome these dogs are for their vets.
Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat they have service dogs for this? I am weeping. That’s incredible.
i literally just started sobbing.
Too important. Our soldiers are coming back to us in such bad shape. Anything that can be done to help them needs to be done, especially something as cheap and easy as service dogs.
