He is such a nerd.

Just to clarify 

What If these same plotlines had the mantles getting passed onto white male characters? It would just be ‘oh ok plots are happening in Marvel Comics, let’s read on’ and any critique would be focused on the plot or characterization. 
But the very idea of someone not white-male entering what was supposedly the sphere of White Men Only, means these ignorant fans get outraged.  It terrifies them, to know that their White Man Club is being dismantled.  And this is a comic book.  Can you imagine the rage these fools feel when this happens in real life? When a white woman becomes a CEO? When a black man gets membership into an exclusive golf club?
'White man' is so embedded in our minds as the default representation of power in our society, that it's become near impossible to separate one from the other.  And the closer you are to being in that privileged bracket (white, straight, cis, thin, able-bodied, wealthy male), the more difficult it becomes to divorce ‘default’ from yourself.
There’s no other member of a group more angry, more insecure, more irrational than a white man.

Quotes from the Harry Potter Books [33/50]

"…So is this what you’ve been doing, Minister, shut up in your office, trying to break open a Snitch? People are dying, I was nearly one of them, Voldemort chased me across three counties, he killed Mad-Eye Moody, but there’s been no word about any of that from the Ministry, has there? And you still expect us to cooperate with you!"

HARRY POTTER HISTORY MEME: one villain [1/1] → Lord Voldemort

When I first met young Mr. Riddle, he was a quiet albeit brilliant boy, committed to becoming a first rate wizard. Not unlike others I’ve known. Not unlike yourself. If the monster existed it was buried deep within.

You used to sleep with one of those lawyers, you live with another…hell…maybe you’re sleeping with her.

Anna: (on arranged marriages) They are forcing me into these practices, which are barbaric… 
Bennett: Barbaric… Did your lawyer tell you to use that word? 
Alan Shore: No, I told her to use reprehensible, repugnant, or repulsive. She came up with barbaric on her own.

Too damn cute

bitterlawyer:

Name: Eugene Young Flavor of Lawyer: Private Defense Attorney Location: Boston Famous Words: Most of my clients are criminals. Some of them are broke and even have to pay in trade. So much as go near your ex-wife again, drive by the house, leave a funny message on the machine, whatever - I will be dispatching two of my delinquent accounts to separate the tops of your kneecaps. Why He’s Awesome: Okay, so he probably shouldn’t have strangled his client’s husband, and he probably shouldn’t have threatened to beat up opposing counsel, but in Eugene’s defense, those guys were really, REALLY annoying. It’s-A-Small-World-on-loop annoying. It was practically self-defense.
