“You might have got the impression that there is a little bit more to Aunt Petunia than meets the eye, and you will find out what it is. She is not a squib, although that is a very good guess. Oh, I am giving a lot away here. I am being shockingly indiscreet." - J.K. Rowling.
If the reveal had been that Petunia was a witch ~ Several years after the war, Harry tracks his aunt down to confront her with what he witnessed in the pensieve.

Art Nouveau vs. Byzantium. Not such a bad mashup after all.
i guess they wanted to clarify their child was definitely frankish
I feel like that does not particularly need clarification because I am assuming that anybody who names their child Francois (as opposed to Francis) is living in a place where they will be speaking French. It could not happen that way, immigrants and such, but that still seems awkward for the kid.
Who even knows.
I’ve met a person named English and three Americas
I forget that people actually name their kids English and that it’s not just a surname. Never actually met somebody called America, though.
I was kind of hoping people didn’t do that, but I am not surprised that they do.
- Kekkuloida = to prance or just hang around naked (yes, the word includes the presumption that you are naked)
- Örveltää = to be really drunk and do whatever you do when you’re really drunk, like crawling in a ditch somewhere on all fours
- Perskärpänen (literally “ass fly”) = a person who keeps following you without you wanting them to
- Röhnöttää = to sit with a bad posture or lie around because you are bored, lazy, or tired
- Paskahalvaus (literally “shit paralysis”) = the state of being really fucking scared or startled
- Änkyrä = a person who’s very reluctant to change their own, usually backwards and bigoted views
- Änkyröidä = a verb derived from the previous noun
- Raivoraitis (literally “rage sober”) = a person who never drinks alcohol and might be very passionate about it
- Yrmy = a person who’s always grumpy or angry
- Perskannikka (literally “ass end-of-a-loaf-of-bread”) = a slang word for “buttock”
- Vongata = to repeatedly and annoyingly ask for sex from someone who’s not interested (i.e. to be a Nice Guy)
- Könsikäs = a big, handsome, masculine man that you find attractive
- Puliukko = a man who spends most of his time wandering about drunk, smells bad, and might be homeless
Feel free to add to the list. :D
I’d add there one thing that’s common word in my family but I’m not sure about the others:
-Örnöttää = being alone in a very distant place such as a summer cottage, not wanting to anyone disturb and being really grumpy even thinking about the possibility of anyone to come visit you.
Suomalainen is a legit surname and means a Finn/Finnish :P
Surnames, though, surnames makes sense. Especially since so often people were ‘x of place’ or ‘x the ethnicity’. Also, they’re inherited.
I just find it concerning when there’s an option for a given name that literally means your demonym and somebody gives it to their child. It’s just vaguely worrying in a ‘too much patriotism’ sort of way.
Okay but the more I think about it, François seems like it would be a really awkward name to have, like-
"Hello, I am from France. My parents named me French."
The only similar names I can come up with are Hua (华) and Romano, which are ‘Chinese’ in Chinese and ‘Roman’ in Italian.
It’s not like the Spanish go around naming their kids Español or the Hungarians Magyar.
What are you doing, France?
if there’s anything I can’t handle right now it’s this
is there a rocky and bullwinkle fandom or
im going in
DON’T GO IN
Loud vocal anger is *not* a valid response to someone who has a neurological problem with pronouns being unable to use the correct ones consistently.
It is not ok to punish someone for being disabled.
Uh, sorry, no?
If someone can’t use either my name or the correct pronouns (there are multiple ones I’d accept) then yeah, I’m gonna be mad if they ever refer to me in a misgendering way. I don’t really care if some random internet stranger has declared my anger at being misgendered by anyone, for any reason, to be invalid.
And maybe that’s one of those situations where it’s not really any one person’s fault or responsibility to change but that they just need to avoid one another, but still, I’m not gonna shut up about or put up with being hurt just because someone ‘can’t help it’.
Ughhhh. The problem with the OP here is something I keep seeing in certain autistic communities, as if other people’s justified anger is a punishment toward them.
Misgendering someone is a terrible thing that causes a lot of harm and pain for the person being misgendered, whether or not you “meant” it. Trying to preemptively invalidate their anger is even worse. And do I even need to point out that trans people with neuro and communication disabilities exist? Like, we’re not talking about mutually exclusive categories?
"I’m justifiably angry that you misgendered me"=/="I’m punishing you for being disabled". That is a pretty big false equivalence.
And can I also point out that this is not something that only happens online? I speak from experience when I say that if six months of “you need to stop saying this” isn’t good enough, then you need to NOT be a part of that social group because you’re causing too much harm to the people in it.
Honestly if using the correct pronouns for people isn’t possible for you then you need to recognize that you’re a danger to trans and genderqueer people, and keep yourself away from them. Invalidating people’s anger when you’ve just harmed them is just gross and not okay.
This and I am 1000% done with every abled person using neurodivergent people to argue against non-traditional pronouns as well. I’m an autistic person who can use neopronouns for others if asked, just tell me how to conjugate and pronounce them if it’s not immediately obvious. Not to mention this whole thing smacks of “but it’s sooo hard to not misgender people” as part of general trans-hate mental gymnastics.
And I don’t know if there really are any neurodivergences that actually do make switching pronouns impossible (I have my doubts) I’ve seen a few dozen posts like this about autistic cis people switching pronouns and they were all ableist pieces of shit.
These posts need to stop
- ignoring that, even if they have genuine difficulty, their difficulty is likely very rooted in cissexism and it’s on them to fix that shit.
- treating us neurodivergent people as if we are so much less competent than neurotypical people. Ableist garbage.
- acting as if any genuine difficulty means it hurts any less.
- treating neurodivergent trans people like they don’t exist.
- preemptively excusing this behavior so that any neurodivergent person will have an excuse. Don’t think they won’t reach for it.
1. also sainte-chapelle thats cool 2. REAL TALK BRO MARSEILLES IS BETTER
Okay I will give Paris the Louvre and it’s associated art museums, Sainte-Chapelle, and Notre Dame.
But none know the true depths of my incredible apathy when it comes to writing about Paris I do not have a great big Theory on what a city means in relationship to people that’s all philosophical and stuff. A city is a city it’s people and buildings and industry with ease of travel and proximity and the money to support stuff like museums and charities and theaters. I don’t see the microcosm of the world in a city, or the microcosm of the city in a person.
But I have to write like I do and I am Not Happy.
My ideal city is the picture of Industrial Chicago I have in my head. Not Paris.
