I got two more editions of Word Cloud Classics today! For those of you unfamiliar with them, they’re these beautiful editions of classic books with words pertaining to the novel’s content on the front, a quote embedded on the back, icons pertaining to the novel at the top of each page, and symbols along the spine. I currently have three in total, but purchased The Picture of Dorian Gray and Emma today to add to my collection. And they are MAGNIFICENT.

Clothing companies are notorious for leaving plus-sized girls out of their marketing and stores, but it’s quite possible that Brandy Melville takes the cake. Brandy Melville, an Italian-based fashion company that has expanded to the United States in the last few years, seems to think that all women come in perfect little identical packages: when browsing their online selections, you’ll notice that it’s hard to find an option on most of their tops and sweaters and such to find the size that would fit you best.
That’s because it doesn’t exist.
Brandy Melville thinks that women are all cookie cutter copies of each other—even thin women—and produce clothing under the guise that “one size fits most.” Aside from this being yet another exclusion for thick or plus-sized women, it’s also an insult to thin women: Brandy Melville is stereotyping not only the ideal that all women should be thin, but that slender women all have the exact same body shape.
Women are not Barbie dolls; stop treating us like plastic, mass-manufactured toys.

Can we please kill the trope where writers for shows, books, or movies think it’s realistic to place their character who did poorly in school and isn’t really super academic into a super well-known, difficult to get into, elite university?
It’s okay to write a character who goes to a regular state school or community college. It’s okay to have characters who didn’t go to college at all. But for the love of God, stop making people think it’s super easy to get into a school that has a mile long waiting list.
. You’re going to be doing some lines for me, Mr. Potter.
[Potter opens his bag for his quill but Umbridge stops him]
No, not with your quill. You’re going to be using a rather special one of mine. Now, I want you to write “I must not tell lies.”
. How many times?
. Let’s see… As long as it takes for the message to sink in.
. You haven’t given me any ink.
