The kid in the back feelin it
#he made the character more than it was tbh #i love book draco but you don’t get to SEE his struggle so much as infer it based on harry’s rather limited POV and in the movies you get tom felton being amazing and deep and showing the downward spiral of someone who made himself incredibly vulnerable at his first meeting harry because he’s sure that all the hype his parents have been doing towards his family and his winning personality are going to garner him all the cool friends but then the years go on and everyone but slytherin hates him and then everyone but his small group of friends hates him and then he’s not even at school at all and he thinks his parents resent him for not succeeding in killing dumbledore and not helping their family get out under voldemort’s control even though those are both impossible requests for someone who is still underage you can see him try and make a decision of what’s right and what’s easy and once he starts thinking for himself you can see him leaning towards the former because none of this is what he signed up for because from the moment his school career began he’s been failing to live up to the expectations he’s set for himself so he rejects everyone around him as lesser and latches onto the one thing that his parents taught him that comes in handy and condescends to anyone who’ll listen and by the end you can see it eat away at him to the point where he’s all but begging harry to save him from dying because he’s once again failed supremely but this time he’s hit the actual rock bottom and his throat is raw from his constant need to resist swallowing his pride and all he wants is a fresh gasp of air and when his parents get him back he flees without looking back because as much as they’ve been worn out by the war draco’s been worn out by so much more in addition to that #and this all happens int he background with no more than a page of dialogue in each movie whereas the main characters have massive arcs and long lingering moments where you see them break down and build themselves back up and tom felton does it all with such cohesion and quiet brilliance that you look back and deem him a main character when he’s really been lost among the massive cast only getting a few words in edgewise and sometimes i wonder if he maybe relates to draco on a level that makes everything that much more rich and nuanced#harry potter #word vomit #spoilers #malfoys appreciation blog ‘∞

GOLLY FUCKING GOSH WHAT A NICE DAY FOR SURFING!
In my opinion- and my slightly uneducated one, if I’m being honest- I think that pansexuality on the same branch of sexual orientations as bisexuality. They’re very similar, and it’s difficult to explain it to someone who has never, at one point or another [mind you, sexuality is fluid], identified as pansexual. Bisexuals are attracted to men and women whom are not transgender [which is absolutely fine]. Pansexuals, however, can be attracted to transgendered people, men, women, non-binary people, genderqueer people. Pansexuals can be attracted to anything under the sun! It’s like reaching your hand down someone’s pants being a-okay with anything you find there [I wish I could credit this quote, but I can’t remember where I heard it]. At the end of the day, is one better than the other? Nope. Should bisexuals be ‘shamed’ for closed-mindedness towards trans people? Nope. Can they fall in love with trans people? Absolutely.
Love, both sensually and sexually, depends on the person themselves. See, love is such a strong term that it could never be pigeon-holed into something as minute as sexuality. There’s a reason it’s called SEXuality! In most cases, sexual attraction and sensual attraction don’t always fall hand-in-hand. This leads to things like aromantic, or asexual. A bisexual person could be sexually attracted to a man or a woman, yet find themselves smitten with a genderqueer person. Pansexual, in my mind, it just a big umbrella term and can be summarized into just being free to love and have sex with whatever we please. After all, love is simply a bunch of serotonin and dopamine and carbon and nitrogen, all released in your brain cells. Can’t really choose who that happens to, yeah?
To sum up everything, pansexuality is a great term to describe people who just love whoever they please. Bisexuals are attracted to men and women. But truthfully, sexuality flows like a river, yeah? It’s a very fluid thing, and can change. If a bisexual person falls in love with a trans man or a trans woman or a genderqueer person, does this mean that they are all of a sudden pansexual? No! They are whatever they identify as and it’s society’s duty to recognize that and respect that. Sexuality is a great big gray area and can’t be defined in any one true way, but I hope this helped you.
Trans men and women ARE MEN AND WOMEN. That’s not what pansexual means and it’s not what bisexual means wow.
With all due respect, I am a pansexual myself and I am only trying to explain it in the best way possible and through the way in which I experience my sexuality. Where, in the paragraphs above, did I ever say that our trans* brothers and sisters were not what they identify as? If you may, could you please explain what I’ve gotten wrong constructively so that we can educate people, rather than just shooting down my attempt to explain? I mean this in the kindest way possible, because criticism void of any constructiveness helps no one. And it annoys me a bit when people jump onto my posts and disrespect my genuine attempt to explain my own sexuality. And I could be wrong, because obviously no one’s orientation is exactly identical, but please explain what I’ve gotten wrong to help further educate people and I would appreciate it if you did so in a more helpful manner than you have previously presented, as I only wish to help others understand. Thank you.
Because as someone who is also pansexual jfc, I’m tired of pansexuals being biphobic & transphobic.
Your words verbatim,”Bisexuals are attracted to men and women whom are not transgender [which is absolutely fine]. ”
Right there is the implication that trans folk are some other kind of gender that need a sexuality created for them (ie pansexual in this case). Here have some more quotes straight from your reply;
“. Pansexuals, however, can be attracted to transgendered people, men, women, […]”
First of all, it’s transgender and not transgender(ed) and second of all you literally stated, “transgendered people, MEN, WOMEN” as if trans men and women aren’t actually men and women.
You didn’t just speak about your sexuality, you spoke about bisexuality as well in a negative way and made it sound like bisexuals are transphobic and who they’re attracted to.
Here, want to know the difference?
Bisexual = umbrella
Pan = label under umbrella
Bisexual = same gender + other gender(S)
Pansexual = all genders
Pansexual is just a bit more specific. How you say? Well when someone says same & other gender(s) they can mean they are attracted to only two sets of genders OR that they are attracted to a gender similar to theirs and genders (plural) not similar to theirs.
Pansexual just specifies that in this case, the person in question is attracted to all genders. Hint: all meaning non binary genders and NOT binary trans folk who are men and women.
Pansexuals are all bisexual as a result of being under the bisexual umbrella and bisexuals can be pansexuals but not all of them are. Squares & rectangles basically.
So yeah no, cut that out.
As a side note though, I really don’t appreciate your tone + I’m pretty sure according to stat counter you were the one in my inbox with the message of, “you are rude + full of yourself” and I want to say my hunches are correct considering you think my original response was rude but how about this?
