did she get a haircut

does it make anyone else uncomfortable that they changed her entire race because she went out with Ron in their sixth year
isn’t that what happened???
they changed a character’s entire race because she as a character became important and relevant for a short amount of time

Wow.

Umm, no. They did not change her entire race simply because she dated Ron. Actually think about it. Up until the sixth book, she was a background character that was only ever mentioned in passing, so she wasn’t given a physical description. Then in the sixth book, Lavender was finally described, as having ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’. Well, the first few Harry Potter movies came out before the Half-Blood Prince book did, so the casting directors did what they wanted with the character. 
Another thing, the Lavender Brown from the first few movies only appeared in the first few movies. Lavender didn’t even appear in the 4th and 5th movies, because again, she was a background character, and wasn’t vital to the story. The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books, and it didn’t fit what the directors had, so they had to recast her. It was not because she dated Ron.

Somebody spread this shit because I refuse to have this turn into some social justice bullshit

Then…the person who is at fault and should be in deep, deep water about this is Rowling herself. Who would have noted that Lavender was a WOC in the films and then would have gone ahead completely disregarded this and decided that in her books she would have ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’.
How absolutely perfect and not suspiciously racist at all.
Also, “social justice bullshit”, hmmmm. Sounds like another HP fan who can’t stand the thought of it being at all criticised. Sorry but your refusal has been denied, because erasure has happened either way and that’s not cool. If you think about it, since she is a side character it should not matter so much what they cast her appearance wise since the adherence to canon is allowed more wiggle room the further from the main characters and main action you get and since she was already cast then suddenly changing her race in the middle of the films is terrible continuity amongst other things. Whatever the book (eventually) stated Lavender should have been kept the same in the films.
What I’m getting at here is: There is no excuse. None. Don’t try to squirm your way out of this.

Watch Honey Maid’s awesome answer about the backlash they received 

so powerful

This is beautiful and perfect and EXACTLY as the world should be.

I tweeted that this commercial made me cry, and one of the gay dads from the commercial favorited it.

Imogen Heap: Run-Time (Official Video)

To read about what Imogen said about how the song came about and the highly anticipated jogging app, check out this article written by Gizmodo.

told myself I wasn’t going to over post about run-time but the dorky/awesome dancing can not be denied. This song is just so fun.
