john grew up in the 80s and 90s when homophobia was rampant
he wanted to be a doctor and there were posters on every corner warning people about the “gay plague”
his sister is queer and an alcoholic and we know nothing about their relationship with their parents
but you’re right, a man his age has no reason to be closeted, right?

"Oh I can’t wait to see McGonagall inspected,” said Ron happily. “Umbridge won’t know what’s hit her.”
McGonagall is the Queen of Sass. All Hail McGonagall.
DO YOU NEED A COUGH DROP, DOLORES?!
"No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible."
while the sentiment is appreciated, there’s a fundamental difference between snowflakes and people.
The snowflakes who make up the avalanche don’t have any control about whether they tip the scale and make everything into an avalanche, They are controlled by physics; gravitation, friction, temperature - everything plays into this.
Humans, on the other hand, always have the option to decide. Sometimes the decision is between life and (certain, presumed certain) death; but there is a decision one can make.
So while no snowflake feels responsible, it’s because they can’t take responsibility. Humans are ALWAYS responsible for their own doings.
A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.
Thank you lieutenantnorals!
"cop breaks and enters with state approval, gets his ass shot"
this happened in Texas where it is perfectly legal to shoot and kill someone who is breaking into your home
Literally everybody knows that in Texas you can open fire on someone who comes onto your property without permission. What in the hell did they expect??
Where the NRA at? In the largest pro-gun state of Texass, those second amendment rights only apply if you’re white.
Oh no stand your ground for the homie right???? NO STAND YOUR GROUND FOR THE HOMIE RIGHT????!????!!!!
"the right to bear arms" applies to every American. As long as he is white.
This seems to be a common problem in media, whether we’re talking about geographic location or time period. It’s a two-part problem.
1) Whose stories are being told.
2) Which actors are cast to tell those stories.
And then of course just general whitewashing.
So Vlogbrothers started running pre-rolls more than a month ago, so we’ve had the first lump of money come in. The biggest chunk of the first payment (and probably a fairly large chunk of the second one) will be going to Kelly Kend to help her work on her documentary “Yeah, Maybe No” which is about consent and sexual abuse.
Just by chance, I was at the same conference as Kelly last weekend so we got to hang out (and I can confirm that she is very smart, very nice, and very well informed on this topic.)
She’s a survivor herself, and just an all around awesome person, and Nerdfighteria is responsible for the money she now has to finish her documentary.
