1014. Some muggleborn Slytherins can’t help but hum “The Rains of Castamere” under their breath when preparing to do something especially cunning. Purebloods start to get very terrified of that song.
For as long as I remember, we’ve been told we’d someday wed.

From the always amazing and on-target Laci Green. In ”Five Things Everyone Should Know About Slut Shame This Halloween,” she breaks it down:
1. Calling women sluts/whores/skanks is a form of sexism.
2. Slut shame limits women’s freedom.
3. Slut shame is one of the ways women compete with each other for male approval.
4. Slut shame is a form of bullying.
5. Slut shame leads to rape, sexual assault, and sexual violence.
“This Halloween (and always) be a good person. Respect women, respect their choices, and check yourself when you find yourself thinking or saying someone is a slut. It’s a deeply held attitude about women that we all learn from our sexist culture, and it is vital that we all take the time to unlearn it. These attitudes are more vicious and dangerous than they might appear.”
I hate slut and related words like I hate b***h and any other word that slams women. Anyone who knows me knows I don’t want to hear these words spoken around me. We are not each other’s enemy; we do not need to trash one another to gain male approval. If we feel we have to compete for a man, chances are he isn’t worth competing for, not if it means belittling a sister. We should work together, not tear at each other. It’s the only way we’ll all get ahead. When women trash each other, only men gain.

The worst is when I give a little boy a pink spoon (or he even ASKS for a pink spoon!) and his mom and dad glare at me as if I’m Satan himself trying to corrupt their kid with a fucking colored disposable spoon.
