"I know men don’t want to give up using porn. Why should they when they know they don’t have to? It’s there, it’s often free, it does the job they want it to do, and they’ve already convinced everyone that they’re entitled to do so. Maybe because it hurts the people involved in its production, it hurts the women who have to deal with men who use it, and because it hurts the women they are in relationships with. A man who uses porn while he’s in a relationship is basically saying to his partner, “I care more about the fact that I want jerking off to be quicker and easier than I do about the fact that someone I’m jerking off to might be being raped, about the fact that it hurts you and damages your self esteem and security in our relationship, about the fact that it is detrimental to our sex life.”"

Draft 1: The “Shit Cishets say about LGBTQIAP+ representation in Harry Potter” Bingo card. 
Suggestions?

Not a headcanon, but i feel it fits

Seriously, though. Dumbledore’s sexuality was in no way relevant to the books. It didn’t need to be brought up. At all. Why does his sexuality matter? It doesn’t. He’s gay. He’s not made to be obviously gay. That isn’t his character. His sexuality doesn’t define his character, and it WOULD have been inappropriate for Harry to know his sexuality. IT. IS. NOT. RELEVANT.

1. Yes it was relevant. It was integral to his entire backstory with Gellert. It is just as important to the plot as Snape’s feelings for Lily. 
2. It matters because LGBTQIAP+ youth deserve representation. 
3. No, his sexuality doesn’t define his character, but if it’s supposed to be part of his character, then it should actually be stated. 
4. No, it would not be any more inappropriate than for Harry to know about Hagrid, or Remus, or Snape’s sexuality (which he did.) 
Stop trying to defend the disgusting heteronormative portrayal of LGBTQIAP+ characters in Harry Potter.

political correctness kills creativity' if you can't create something without furthering the oppression of minorities, you aren’t a very creative person.

"If someone can be kicked out of school for copying a paper, a person should be kicked out of school for raping another human being."

*makes heterophobic text post*

It’s a metaphor, see? You make a mean text post, but you don’t back it with thousands of years of violently-upheld institutional power, so it doesn’t have the power to actually hurt anyone.
