What We Missed

In case it was not already wildly obvious, I am a Harry Potter nerd. I am also a fan of the It Gets Better project. Which is why I love this video.

Australian painter Margaret Olley, one of the world’s foremost woman artists, has died.

Rep. David Wu, the Democratic congressman from Oregon who was accused last week of raping the daughter of a longtime friend and campaign contributor, resigned today.

Raped, framed by her rapist, and wrongly incarcerated. There is literally nothing that isn’t appalling about this story.

Two days after New York State granted its first marriage licenses to same sex couples, anti-SSM groups have filed a suit to have the law overturned.

At Feministe, a reminder that abortion isn’t as freely available in Australia as some Australians (myself included) like to think.

**Trigger warning** At Scarleteen, Heather Corinna writes about what the SlutWalk movement means to her, as a rape survivor.

    Snape referenced Lady Gaga! Does that mean that he has the gift of prophecy?

    Would have been nice to have a spoiler alert on a video that gives away major plot twists in a movie that’s only been out a couple weeks.

    The movie may have been out for only a couple of weeks but the book that it’s based on has been out for four years now. It’s therefore should not a shock for the video to mention Snape’s secret life and his death.

    Thank you for this great video!! I loved it. Watched it this morning and it made my day. I sent it to my 13 year old daughter as well. We are HUGE Harry Potter fans and say the final movie in the Theatre last weekend.

    It does get better. I have to believe it!!!!
