WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: AUSTRALIAOriginally located in Arnhem Land, The Australian College of Sorcery and Witchcraft was a sprawling campus of large huts that eventually coalesced into one single structure. The school separated from mainland Australia soon after British settlement in order escape diseases that killed a large portion of the indigenous population. Ever since, the school has been drifting haphazardly along the Australian coast. Every year, a team of witches and wizards must be employed to anchor the floating campus so students don’t have to go on a cat-and-mouse chase at the beginning of the year in order to attend school (a frustrating endeavour which often results in the postponing of classes due to the lack of a present student population). Due to the campus’s exposure to ocean-life, the College of Sorcery and Witchcraft boasts incredibly extensive courses in aquatic creature studies, and is held in high esteem by the international wizarding community for its innovations in water magic.
I LOVE ORPHAN BLACK
I literally finished the show yesterday. I feel that.
we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.
I just did the dishes with this scene and song running through my head. Take from that what you will. Apparently I’m turning into Alison.
#the contrast between beth and sarah is amazing here #they have similar clothing on #similar hair #yet they’re different #how? #beth’s face looks more lined due to lighting #she looks tired #her eyes are pained #she looks like she’s given up #she looks like she’s watched her whole world burn down before her #then there’s sarah with this unwavering ferocity in her eyes #like go ahead #fuck with me #just try it #she even snarls slightly when she says her name #like fuck you #im sarah #whaddaya gonna do? #she looks like a woman on a mission #and it makes me wonder #did beth have that look when she still in control? #and did sarah look like beth while she was suffering vic and far away from her daughter?
STOP. I DO NOT NEED THESE FEELINGS.

mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary
