Rubeus Remus Potter. You were named after the only two people at Hogwarts who seemed to give shit about me, because come on who else would I name you after? A verbally abusive dickbag who was in love with my mum and gave me shit all my life and someone who convinced a bunch of children that they needed to be soldiers? What kind of awful aspirations would that make you end up having? Come on son I’m not an idiot…

leaving Laverne Cox off of the Time top 100 despite the overwhelming support she received is an act of violence and erasure towards trans women

Pretty much this. She beat so many people that actually made it onto the list, but the people at Time really didn’t give half a shit. The editors had theirtop 100 written out over a month ago, they convinced celebrities to write little biopics for them, and then they left the polls open to humor us. Apparently the people at Time never expected a transgender person, let alone a trans woman of colour, to be respected and loved more than a british man. Let’s take a look at the online polls and crunch some numbers shall we?

Benedict Cumberbatch is the first person in the ‘artists’ section of Time’s 100. On the online poll, 90,271 people answered the question of whether or not he should have made it. 65.8% said yes, which, at a favorable estimate, means that sixty thousand people voted for him to be on the list. He made it. Good for him.

Laverne Cox didn’t make it onto the list. Why? On the online poll, 88,481 people answered whether or not Laverne should have been on the list. That’s nearly as many answers as there were for Benedict. However, 91.5% of those votes said she should be on the list.  Even at the least favourable estimaterounding that percentage down to 90%, she still had seventy nine thousand people vote that she deserved to be on the list. That’s 125% of the support that Cumberbatch had, but where is she on the list? Nowhere to be seen. Why? Because Time has chosen to participate in the willful erasure of transgender people.

To the editors of Time Magazine, fuck you. We know who deserved their spot on the list.

i’m not mad that john green made the times 100 list. (okay i’m a bit mad.) but mostly what i’m mad about isn’t that he made the list but why he made the list

because instead of focusing on the project for awesome or the foundation to decrease world suck or his support of kiva or his promotion of education through crash course and scishow (all of which are excellent things on the whole) 

instead of focusing on those things which are actual legitimate things which are bettering this planet they said no, let’s focus on how he’s finally given a voice to all those poor, misunderstood teenagers who never had someone to speak for them before 

because he’s saved the young adult genre, because he’s a prophet for his books because clearly ya lit was nothing before john green

#yeah project for awesome is actually impressive  #his books are honestly less so  #especially compared to the many women YA writers before him

After an announcement yesterday outlining what girls (and only girls) could and could not wear to school today (even though it was 80 degrees and the school would not turn on the air conditioner) someone posted this in a stairwell. A lot of girls were supportive of these posters, seeing as some teachers were sending down absolutely any girls wearing shorts.

time didn’t even revise the results

they didn’t change the numbers

they left it clear that laverne cox was on top

and then they just straight up excluded laverne from their Influential 100 list because they felt like it. 

i don’t need an explanation from them. i don’t need to understand their motives because fuck them.

Laverne Cox was purposefully kept off the Times 100 list. 

Just let that sink in.

Oh and before you come at me, I do not care what you say because she was well over 90 fucking percent

If you don’t think that’s utterly fucking disgusting and transmisogynist then I have officially nothing to say to you and you may vacate my life immediately

This woman is a feminist icon. She has been raising awareness for trans rights everywhere. She is the driving force behind the Free CeCe docuementary. She is an inspiration to women everywhere

And they fucking kept her off the list.

Fuck all of your excuses this was blatant erasure and transmisogynist violence.

fauxcyborg:

there should be the realization that some issues are more important than others, while still realizing that many things feed into each other but uh: no more talking about shaving legs, no more talking about makeup if it will always come at the expense of declaring “but I’m not a hairy angry ugly feminist” (which is a dogwhistle and misogynistic)

no more if it becomes the only conversation that you can hear over and over again.
