Someone’s probably in love with you right now, even though you think you’re boring and stupid and smell bad most of the time, someone probably saw you last week and wiped their sweaty hands on the insides of their pockets and thought about your body under your clothing and about how you would look asleep in their bed

That’s not love. That’s lust.

hi I was wondering who sexually abuses emma??? like what happened? I have seen like 90% of the episodes but I cannot think of that happening? like idk if it was something that I didn't see or forgot about or if there is somethig that I saw but didn't see as sexual abuse. which the last one is what really concerns me tbh

In ‘Tallahassee’ Emma is 16 years old. We know this from Henry’s age. He was 10 on her 28th Birthday so we know he was born when she was 17. And in ‘Manhattan’ he said he was 11, which was how Neal worked out he was his son, which was within 6 months of the start of the show timeline. This means she must have been 16 when she got pregnant. To put it is perspective, Emma was about the age of the actress who portrayed her in the finale flashback at the children’s home. 

Neal’s legal DOB puts him at 24, and while we know that is fake, we also know him to be much older than that. 

In Arizona (and Oregon) if an adult has sex with someone under the age of consent the legal term is sexual abuse. It would more commonly be called statutory rape. 

Whatever you call it, it is an adult man in a sexual relationship with someone who is still a child, which is abuse. Part of the reason we have age of consent laws is there is a power imbalance issue when a grown adult gets into a relationship with someone that much younger who is not an adult yet which makes it pretty much impossible for there to be true informed consent. There is also the issue of why is this adult hitting on a child rather than someone their own age.

Because they didn’t recast age appropriate actors for the episode it is easy to miss if you don’t sit down and break down the ages. The show also has a lot of younger fans, and teenagers do believe they are all grown up and capable of making adult decisions, so they don;t see the issues there. And they also often think that the idea of an older man taking an interest in them is romantic instead of creepy, it is a common teenage girl fantasy.

It also didn’t help that the show didn’t do as good a job as they could of in making sure that Neal’s abuse of Emma was framed as negatively as it should have been.

People who hate Harry Potter missed the a giant part of the story. Despite being abused by his aunt, uncle and cousin his whole life Harry was kind, compassionate, loyal, protective and honest. He defended those who needed it and stood up to those who deserved it. He didn’t become bitter or hateful. And he spent his life trying to protect others. You can’t hate him because people chose to stand by him even if it meant they’d die. He didn’t want that, he wanted everyone to live even if it meant he couldn’t anymore.

It’s because he suffered PTSD in book 5 and was mistaken for a whinny angsty teen.

THANK YOU! Bold and italicized for major emphasis because I’m tired of fucking hearing it. 

Harry WAS a whinny angsty teen in Book 5 and there was absolutely NOTHING wrong with that because HE WAS A TEENAGER and was allowed that bit of human emotion. Jeez. 

He was suffering from PTSD. He saw Voldemort return, Voldemort tried to kill him and he saw Cedric die.
