You can reverse the flow of the hotdogs if you concentrate hard enough

oh my god you can

What I find fascinating is that they appear to go in much faster than they come out. Hank, explain this to me using science.

YOU CAN REVERSE THE HOTDOGS! =O

THIS! Also I wish Rowling would have explored Hermione’s motivations more, because damn, these tags did a better job at explaining her motivations than the actual books. I mean, seriously, we get to know all about Ron, get to learn all his deepest fears and his greatest motivations, get to meet each member of his family, get to see where he lives, get to know him outside the context of being one of Harry’s best friends… but Hermione? Well, we don’t even get to know half of that.

Hermione is one of my favorite characters, but we don’t get to know Hermione like we do Ron. In fact, this can be said of most of the women in the series when you think about it. 

Since everyone’s already talking about Hermione, I’d like to bring this back. I have a lot of feelings about the women in Harry Potter.

Why Stephen Colbert’s Transphobic Jokes Are Not Satirizing Transphobia

yourmomentofhate:

Here are some super hilarious jokes:

“…President Elect, Obama is meeting every day with his transition team, or in beltway lingo, ‘trannies’.”

“First of all, congratulations… transparency award. Congratulations on winning the coveted… tranny.”

Two more:

“Here’s a general rule of thumb I have: if you don’t know whether you’ve made a particular mistake more or less than 50 times, that’s not really a mistake. At that point, it’s something you do.


For instance, how many times have I accidentally picked up a tranny hooker at a truck-stop? I wanna say it’s in the 50s, but it could be higher. I-I-i- guess what I’m saying is I’m nearsighted?”

“This person, that person? That’s the phrase I use when I’m talking about Jackie, the ‘person’ I met in the meat-packing district with an adam’s apple and hands like canoe paddles.” *looks around suspiciously*

And here are two more:

"C’mon democratic party. Play along! If your party does not implode, we’ll have to go with our backup scandal. Ed Rendell is a tranny!"

(making up a fake scandal for a random governor) “Governor Bob Riley, of Alabama, is fond of banana pudding…when served off the breasts of a Thai shemale.”

 

In each grouping above, one of the jokes is from Jon Stewart and one is from Stephen Colbert. Yet, despite the fact that Jon Stewart is a liberal comedian, they are almost indistinguishable from each other. 

That’s the thing, jokes mocking and dehumanizing trans people are a liberal problem. Liberal comedians and comedy shows do it constantly. Nearly all of them. It’s borderline harassment. 

Colbert isn’t using these jokes to mock conservatives’ transphobia, he’s just using time-tested trans jokes (ones often used by other liberal comedians) for easy laughs. And because liberals (as well as conservatives) find the idea of a trans person to be the most hilarious/disgusting thing ever, these jokes fucking kill.
