- don’t trust men who have to insult other women in order to compliment you
- a subset of this rule is don’t trust men who say ‘you’re pretty/smart/[adjective] for an indian/asian/[identity group]’

The only point I need make when getting huffle-shamed is Helga Motherfucking Hufflepuff.
She was the best founder in my book, hands down.
You know the story. Each founder wanted only a certain type of student at Hogwarts. When they saw they couldn’t agree they split the school into quarters and set up credentials for their houses.
Said Slytherin, “We’ll teach just those
Whose ancestry’s purest.”
Said Ravenclaw, “We’ll teach those whose
Intelligence is surest.”
Said Gryffindor, “We’ll teach all those
With brave deeds to their name.”
Said Hufflepuff, “I’ll teach the lot
And treat them just the same.”
Salazar was essentially a eugenicist who wanted to implement background checks and only teach you if your lineage was ‘pure’. Rowena probably would have had some sort of rigorous aptitude test to make sure only the most academically gifted were accepted. Godric wanted only brave students so feats of strengths perhaps? Tests of valor?
Helga thought that a student was a student and deserving of the opportunity of receiving an education. What if any one of them was the sole founder of Hogwarts? If anyone but Helga was in charge, hundreds of witches and wizards in Britain would never be able to properly learn magic.

Great Gatsby captioned exactly how it happened.
Tom and Tilda in Detroit!! They’re just grungy perfection :)
just look at the time
Today, it was revealed that Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox have found their own Quicksilver for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Well, we now have more information as to exactly why they’ve made this seemingly antagonistic move towards Marvel and what this means for The Avengers 2.
“This is not a situation where the two different companies are working together to try and create a sense of a larger shared world. In fact, if either of them could get the other to back off, they would. The thing is, Bryan Singer has designed a sequence that he feels only works with Quicksilver, and Joss Whedon feels that there is a pressing reason for Quicksilver to show up in “The Avengers 2,” and so what we’re going to see is a legally-negotiated stand-off in which we’ll get two totally different versions of one character. While they may act like things are amicable in public, HitFix sources say otherwise.” Unsurprisngly, they add that, “Marvel has larger plans for the character, though, and wants to use him for more than just one action sequence.”
“If they push forward and allow Singer to include the character, there’s a chance they’re burning down any future cooperation with Marvel, who have proven themselves to be hard negotiators who aren’t afraid to flex whatever muscle they have.”
