THIS IS THE COLBERT REPORT!
Also, Lily Potter would have never wanted an abortion, because she was a financially well-off white woman starting a family in a happy marriage with a secure place at the top of wizarding society.
The question you should be asking is what if Merope Gaunt, an impoverished and uneducated single woman who escaped from a severely abusive family only to become pregnant with the unwanted child of a man who wanted nothing to do with her, had had access to an abortion and not had immense social pressure brainwashing her into carrying to term?
Perfect commentary is perfect.
it got better
Our distance kept growing and you did nothing to stop it. You watched us grow apart and you didn’t fight for it.
but it’s okay
you were one of those people
one of those friends
i would have desperately held on to
if only i knew you were holding on,
but there was no clinging to each
other, ever, just the talks
late at night
once a week
until we were just too busy
and we looked back, tiny specks

Also holy shit I love these.
How come I don’t run across this stuff regularly?
Because of racism and the retroactive erasure of POC in Medieval Europe. Pretty much the same reason you almost never see these works of art either unless you’re already looking for them:
But it’s SOOOOOOOOOOO UNREALISTIC TO SEE BLACK PEOPLE IN MEDIEVAL EUROPE!!!!
Two scientists walk into a bar
The first scientist says ‘I’ll have a glass of H2O”
The second scientist says ‘I’ll have a glass of water too. Wh… why did you say H2O? Like, I know it’s the chemical formula for water and all, but it’s the end of the day and there’s really no need to intentionally over-complicate things like that in a situation outside of work”
The first scientist stares at his drink, angry that his assassination plan has failed.
