reminder that rape and sexual abuse happens to everyone, not just girls
I think the disturbing part is how very similar the threats are.
That would be because rape is about power and control. Not only do rapists enjoy the violation process, they enjoy the power and control that they can gain over their victims through threats and coercion.
Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F
I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?
You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.
Average American Grading Scale: A+- 97-100 A - 94-96 A- - 90-93 B- 80-89 C- 70-79 D- 60-69 F- 59 and under
oh wow that is fucked up
why do they skip E in america
There’s an E in other grading scales?
And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be A - 100-93 B - 92-85 C - 84-78 D - 77-70 F - 69 and below
Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier?
No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?
UK Grading Scale
Below 40: F
ARE YOU FUCKING WITH ME?! THATS INSANE!!!!
next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid
i’m gonna remind you
that our “average” is your “A”
Reblogged for the commentary
I’m moving to the UK
Canada has the same grading system as the US. And then in college, in my program, if I get anything lower than a 69, I fail that class. I’ve done it once already, that’s why I’ve spent 4 years in a 3 years program. :/ When you fail (in my case it was just one class) you come back and they make you redo all the classes of that semester, and you have to get higher grades than what was required last time, to pass. All the classes, even the ones you have passed previously.
My mind is seriously blown by this. You mean all this time I could have been a straight A student?!
Bloody hell America. Everything I hear about your education system both frightens me and fills me with sadness. Jeez.

"Well, then, I am confused…I’m afraid I don’t quite understand how you can give Mr. Potter false hope that —" "False hope?" repeated Professor McGonagall, still refusing to look round at Professor Umbridge. “He has achieved high marks in all his Defense Against the Dark Arts tests —" "I am terribly sorry to have to contradict you, Minerva, but as you will see from my note, Harry has been achieving very poor results in his classes with me —" "I should have made my meaning plainer," said Professor McGonagall, turning at last to look Umbridge directly in the eyes. “He has achieved high marks in all Defense Against the Dark Arts tests set by a competent teacher."
