Luna was one of the most beautiful characters in Harry Potter
#it never once occurred to her to treat dobby as anything less than a human being#even ron had trouble viewing house elves as something other than slaves because that’s all he was used to#but luna calls him ‘sir’ on their very first meeting as if that’s the normal greeting for a house elf#and just look how grateful dobby is#he’s not used to being treated like that#luna you beautiful soul (x)
if you like both disney and dreamworks equally and you just want to watch movies without people fighting about it clap your hands
I feel like there are people who are like this…
So I saw many people saying that Tangled and Frozen have mothers and daughters that look exactly the same and how those people “used to love Disney before they got lazy” but I just wanted to make a tiny reminder that Elsa, Anna and Rapunzel are not the only ones who look a lot like their moms, okay? Seriously.
Let me explain to you a thing that I like to call genetics
things harry styles is not:
things harry styles could possibly be:
- golf ball
- coconut in a wig
"I just don’t want them to change me."
“How would they change you?”
“I don’t know. They’d turn me into something I’m not.
I just don’t want to be another piece in their game, you know? [..]
If I’m gonna die, I want to still be me”.
Remember when Ariel met Gabriella, a deaf latina mermaid who taught her how to sign and they performed a duet, where Ariel was singing and Gabriella was signing?
SEE, DISNEY CAN BE INCLUSIVE WHEN IT WANTS
That was my favorite episode of the whole series!
This episode devastated me. It was the first time Disney told me that dreams can’t come true and sometimes thats okay.
As an autistic person, I feel the need to help inform the public, especially on this important Autistic Pride Day.
Please, please DO NOT SUPPORT AUTISM SPEAKS.
Autism Speaks hates autistic people. Autistic people have been treated horribly by this corporation. They have done many, many really shady things that should be brought to public attention, yet they are often seen as the “face” of autism because they are so large. This is a LIE. Autistic people DO NOT want to be represented by Autism Speaks. We do not support Autism Speaks. We do not want Autism Speaks to continually pretend to “help” us while raking in massive corporate profits, that we, disabled people, will never see.
- Autism Speaks does not have a single autistic member on their board.
Autism Speaks only spends 3% of their budget on “family services”.
Much of Autism Speaks’ money goes toward research, and much of that research centers on finding a way to eliminate autism, and thus, autistics (which will likely be done through a prenatal test, in the same way that the Down’s Syndrome test is conducted).
Autism Speaks produces advertisements, small films, etc. about what a burden autistic people are to society.
Autism Speaks was responsible for “Autism Every Day”, which featured a member of their board talking about contemplating murder-suicide of her daughter in front of her daughter. This has now be removed from Autism Speaks’ Youtube channel.
Autism Speaks is responsible for the atrocity known as “I am Autism”, a short film produced by the Academy Award Winning Alfonso Cuaron, who also directed the 3rd Harry Potter movie (yes, really) and features an ominous voice saying things like “I am autism…I know where you live…I work faster than pediatric AIDS, cancer, and diabetes combined…I will make sure your marriage fails.”
This woman’s job offer was rescinded after she asked Autism Speaks for accommodations in caring for her autistic son. They refused, and she made necessary accommodations for childcare, but they withdrew her offer anyways.
Autism Speaks shared the news of Google removing hate speech regarding autistics from Google’s autofill feature, completely erasing any mention of autistic people’s flashblogs having anything to do with the change. It was only after a member of the autism community (and not a parent, but an autistic person themselves) spoke with a reporter about the flashblog and a statement was released to the media that Google decided to make this change.
Autism Speaks highlighted AAC use, while erasing those those who actually use AAC devices to communicate. The focus was on the caretakers, not on the autistic people themselves. (The attached link has a link to a rebuttal by a nonspeaking autistic person, Amy Sequenzia).
Autism Speaks has violated copyright and has profited off an autistic advocate’s writing for three years.Is that not enough? Here, have way more of Autism Speaks dirty laundry that they don’t want you to know about.

Do not donate to Autism Speaks. Do not support them. Educate yourself on why they are so horrible. I like Emma Stone and I like Andrew Garfield, but they are obviously unaware of the horrors that go on behind closed curtains when it comes to Autism Speaks.
Please spread the word and listen to autistic people, not Autism Speaks!
Don’t get me started on how important this movie is. I won’t stop.
“It’s just a morality tale, it’s obvious which gift is best, which one you’d
The three of them spoke at the same time; Hermione said, “the cloak,” Ron said, “the wand,” and Harry said, “the stone.”
