"Oh I can’t wait to see McGonagall inspected,” said Ron happily. “Umbridge won’t know what’s hit her.”
McGonagall is the Queen of Sass. All Hail McGonagall.

"Horsemanning, or fake beheading, was a popular way to pose in a photograph in the 1920’s. Sometimes spelled horsemaning, the horsemanning photo fad derives its name from the Headless Horseman, a character from “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”
HUMAN BEING ARE AND ALWAYS HAVE BEEN SUCH HUGE FUCKING DORKS OKAY.
As a fellow bisexual woman, I've got a few hate messages saying some things among the lines of ''bisexual people are just transphobic pansexuals'', what's your opinion on that?
My opinion is that the pansexual vs bisexual thing has to end. It’s so petty and pointless and when we’re divided, it stops us from focussing on the real issues like bi and pan erasure, and y’know, general human rights.
Bisexuals and pansexuals should be friends. We’re very similar. Some of us even define ourselves in exactly the same way.
Being bisexual isn’t transphobic because the most broadly used definition of bisexuality is: attraction to same and different genders or attraction to more than one gender.
Trans people don’t have their own special category. Trans men are men. Trans women are women.
When I say I’m attracted to women, I mean women. Obviously including trans women.
When I say I’m attracted to men, I mean men. Obviously including trans men.
When I say I am attracted to non-binary people, I mean exactly that.
I don’t think it’s a difficult concept for people to grasp, so I think this argument is rooted in biphobia, not in concern for the trans community.
Bisexuality is not problematic by definition. Sure, there are going to be individual bisexuals that are transphobic but there are bad eggs in just about every group in the world. This isn’t a problem unique to the bi community, and to frame it like that is just plain biphobia.
I could define myself as pansexual or bisexual. Most bisexuals probably could. I chose bisexuality because it is more broadly known about, and I am very determined to show people that bisexuality isn’t wrong. I refuse to not call myself bisexual because biphobic people are uncomfortable with the term for bigoted, unfounded, and ignorant reasons.
Seriously, why are we hating on each other? We’re supposed to be a community. We get enough hate and abuse from the outside world. We don’t need this pointless bullshit on top of all that.
One thing though that bothers me is that there are a lot of bisexuals who would identify as pansexual if they knew about non-binary people / that there is beyond male and female. A lot of bisexuals style themselves as “gender doesn’t matter” type of people, which is closer to pansexual than bisexual. I don’t think it’s that there are a lot of transphobic bisexuals, but that a lot of bisexuals aren’t that aware about gender.
Saying you could define yourself as either pansexual or bisexual doesn’t make sense to me because they simply aren’t the same thing. However, I totally understand with identifying as bisexual because it’s more known about and therefore doesn’t require explanation.
Ultimately, I think a lot of trans people see bisexual people saying that bisexual means “attracted to men and women” which is nonbinary erasure and therefore transphobic — it’s not the correct definition, but ask bisexual people outside of tumblr how they define it, and you’ll see what I mean.
You’re missing the point.
For many of us Bisexual has always included trans people. We are suddenly being told we should identify as pan instead of bi. Our identity is suddenly being dictated by others while being told we are transphobic. We are told the definition we have been using for years (in my case for more than 15 years) is no longer valid and we need to use another one or we are horrible people.
I’ve met many bi people, most long before Tumblr existed, including bi people who have been activists for longer than I and probably you have been alive and most use a form of the following definition for bisexuality:
the potential to be attracted—romantically and/or sexually—to people of more than one sex and/or gender, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree.
Some adjusted the definition for themselves, the same way straight, gay and lesbian people have, to exclude or include trans people.
And yes, like many straight, gay and lesbian people, not all bi people are aware of gender, but bisexuals are punished the most for it while they are in general the one most open to a relationship with trans people.
To tell bisexual people they have to identify as pansexual is a horrible thing and makes me more determined to keep using bisexual to label myself.
