I always imagine that Ron is the most "traditional" parent, I think because he was kind of the most flawed and obviously prejudiced character in canon who was "a good guy". He didn't respect Elf rights and he was just more used to and compliant in "normal wizard culture" So I kinda carried that into believing he'd be the most conflicted about all his activist children, cause he believed that now that Voldermort was gone they'd be okay. But could he with Hermione as a wife? IMO she's (cont)

Nope. I think after the war Ron is forced to look at that (we do see some maturation in the last book, after all), and I think definitely after seven years of rubbish, Ron’s become skeptical, to say the least, of not only the Ministry but the larger society of Wizarding England. Also, I think we can all agree that Ron’s entire generation has been severly affected by what happened, and I don’t think they could let it go. I like the idea that Ron actually adjusted to it suprisingly well, far better than Harry and Hermione, because the truth is that Ron is far more familiar with the wizarding world on an instinctual level, in a way that Harry and Hermione never will be, and I don’t think Ron is given enough credit for that. As I’ve stated earlier, Ron went through a lot of growth in the seventh book, and I believe that that would show.

Finally, Ron himself did the same as a teenager, so I think that rather than resisting it, he would actually support them causing chaos. 

The most I could see is him being concerned about how the publicity could affect the kids negatively (the media can be cruel about this sort of thing, “celebrity children” obsession and all), or maybe finding it somewhat difficult to keep up with the rapidly changing social system and activism and such in Hogwarts (which, to be fair, is difficult to keep up with even in Hogwarts), and so may feel unhappily isolated from the kids. But these are both problems that could and probably would affect Hermione too, and arguably to a lesser extent the Weasley clan in general.

Hi guys, I felt like I should really share this experience with you. Recently I decided to conduct something of a…social experiment.

The first photo is of me in casual wear. It’s pretty mismatched. I was wearing my pajama top over my tee and had black pants on. My hairs messed up and everything. I look unprofessional, and it’s intended.

I took a walk through an inner city neighbourhood of Brisbane. I asked the police for directions to the library. I bought a krispy kreme doughnut from the 7 11. I went inside the mall and was asked to try free samples several times. I bought the first volume from SnK from Angus and Robert’s. I wasn’t treated any differently, the reactions were warm and friendly. My outfit didn’t effect anything at all.

The second image is me in a salwaar. The hair took effort to get into curls. (Sorry, the mirror was foggy) I had a bit of make up on. I looked good. The outfit was ironed and it looked much better than the previous one. I went to the same shops an hour later. Asked the same guard where the library was. Bought another krispy kreme.

The reactions were totally different. There were no thank you’s. No one asked me to try a sample. The guard was annoyed. When I went into the bookstore the lady at the register followed me around the whole time. When I bought a copy of ‘The storyteller’ by Jodi Picoult, she asked me if I had enough money with me before she scanned it.

I am a fourteen year old girl who has lived overseas for three years. Never have I faced such blatant discrimination.

What is this supposed to mean? You’re good to go as long as you don’t embrace your traditional values? Is this why south Asian girls are embarrassed to wear their saris and salwaars in the open? Is this why we refuse to wear our bindi and play the harmonium? Is this why we think it’s better to be well spoken in English that Bangla, Urdu, or Hindi.

When white people embrace my traditional values, they’re open minded. When I do it, I’m suddenly a nuisance. I’m automatically expected to not be well spoken. I’m automatically a suspect for shop lifting.

Think about that.

Headcanon: when Draco sees tiny baby Scorpius for the first time, he's like "awww" for ONE SECOND - before the utter PANIC sets in, and then he's just "OHMERLIN WHAT HAVE I DONE I'M GOING To F*CK THIS CHILD UP SO BADLY I'LL BE A TERRIBLE PARENT I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE I CAN BARELY EVEN MEET MY DEADLINES FOR WRITING HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO MANAGE A CHILD I'M SCREWED HE'S SCREWED WHAT AM I DOINg" and that's basically how it goes

toobusyoverthinking answered:

I want to believe that Draco feels so out of his element but desperately wants to interact with his child, not hand him off to a Nanny (even if they had a Nanny idk how wealthy they would be after most of their business partners wouldn’t want to be associated with them after the war). And he’s SO CONCERNED about Scorpius LITERALLY ALL THE TIME because “HE’S SO SMALL TORY (which is what he calls Astoria bc nicknames are life) WHAT IF HE FALLS DOWN CLIMBING THE STAIRS” and is Extremely Protective.

When he gets older he has to learn to trust Scorpius to act for himself even though he really just wants to protect him from everything bad in the world, and seriously tries to talk him into home-school but Scor won’t have it (which is probably for the best), mostly because 

"Do you even know how big the hogwarts library is father"

"we have a bookshelf right here"

"THAT’S A FAKE BOOKSHELF THAT LEADS TO THE SECRET ROOM YOU HAD INSTALLED"

"BUT IT’S SUCH A COOL ROOM"

but Draco will learn to respect his son’s choices and interests and will not be horrible because I need to have hope for the future.

PERFECTION

(except let’s be real here Scorpius would not call Draco father and also Scorpius is a giant dorky nerd too)

Although my headcanon is that actually Draco lets Scorpius form his own opinions from the get-go and lets him read whatever -

It’s just that he doesn’t want to let Scorpius out in public at ALL (you know, because Draco is convinced that people will treat scorpius terribly?), but then, when Scorpius is four, Astoria is like,”OH, come on, Draco, let the kid have some fun! Take him to a children’s bookshop or something!”

And that is the day he meets Rose Weasley. (The two of them becoming little bby nerd friends was faaaaate~)

And it’s just that little Scorpius is so CUTE and BUBBLY and AWWW he’s so cute esp when he and rose nerd out together (flapping hands)

My headcanon is that Scorpius is a giant little dorky nerd and it’s adorable and he and Rose love nerding out together and it’s so cuuuuute and I know im repeating myself but at this point i don’t care so cuuuuuute

Truthfully, I’ve never expected much from Sarah Silverman but this? She can keep this bullshit non-apology.

I absolutely believe that the cissexist undertones of that video never crossed Sarah’s mind. But that doesn’t make the content any less hurtful. Remember, intent vs. impact. But after being called out for trivializing sexual reassignment surgery

  • Ron: At least he's not crying...
  • Hermione: Yes, thank god for that, I really don't want to deal with MORE screaming...
  • Ginny: May I just add that I think that's an incredibly low bar?
  • [All three together]: NO!
  • : P.S. In case you were wondering, yes, this Scorpius Malfoy is autistic. So is this Rose Weasley. And Ron Weasley. And yes, Hermione Granger too. You NTs cannot stop me.

chutzpadik:

look. to emphasize the often arbitrary difference between schizophrenia spectrum disorders and autism spectrum ones, to bring it up again and again and again in conversations about—can schizophrenics call themselves neurodivergent??? is to enforce the western psychiatric hegemony and to ignore a lifetime of shared experiences & struggles.

and it reeks of autistic people trying to separate themselves from the Scary Mentally Ill.
