whoneedsfeminism:

I need feminism because females students made up the majority of my 12th grade high school classes: math = 82%, chemistry = 77%, physics 80%, english = 82%. But we’re not even close to being equally represented in what we’re learning in school.
The # of pieces of literature we read with a female lead character: 1
The # of female authors we read: 2
The # of women in history we learned about in-depth (in the entire course): 1 (Margaret Thatcher)
# of women we learned about in the sciences and math: the textbooks made some attempt to occasionally mention females in sciences. HOWEVER, they were always placed to the side of the page, out of the main text. 
FEMALES made up the majority  of my classes. 
So why can’t we be equally represented in our own education? WE DESERVE BETTER! <3 
I went to a small school in a rural area in Canada,  so I know that my class stats may be different from others in city schools. However, this is still a problem in our education system!

HYPOTHETICALLY

hogwarts AU where Arthur is NOT sorted into Gryffindor, but is instead made a Hufflepuff to the astonishment of every single person in Britain 

Morgana mocks him for a full week, but it has the opposite effect and it turns Arthur into someone who is Super Aggressive About Hufflepuff Pride

everything is black and yellow. everything

he personally deals with other students harassing first-year Puffs

he inspires the House mantra BADGER BLOOD at quidditch games and when the yellow section get going it sounds like a war chant

his game tactics are ruthless and dangerous, and for the first time in a long time Hufflepuff’s quidditch team is taken seriously

his network of close friends spans all four houses, from Merlin and Morgana in Slytherin, to his fellow Hufflepuff Gwen, to Gryffindors Lancelot and Gwaine, to Ravenclaws Elyan and Leon

and by the time he graduates, no incoming student is ashamed to be sorted into Hufflepuff ever again

*whispers* Mulan, Merida, and Rapunzel didn’t have men saving them

*regular voice* Lilo and Nani’s sisterly love for each other was a big point in their movie

*slightly aggravated voice* Enchanted questioned marrying a man you hardly know

*shouting* FROZEN ISN’T THE FIRST MOVIE TO HAVE THESE POINTS
