Anatomy of a HOAX: Harry Potter 7 LEAKED

I am a huge Harry Potter fan. First read the first 2 books in 1999 and was forever hooked. In the past 8 years I've waited in line for the books at midnight like everyone else. Last year I was fedup with the lines and was happy to find a .pdf of the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince online a week before it's release. I bought the book about a month later, as any real Potter fan would. I wondered how long the book would take to leak to the internet this time around. So I've been searching every month for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows/Deathly Hollows. This week on a fav torrent site I found a 659 page book that looked like the right thing.

The words seem to go the way they should and on page 8 we find Dudley Dursley is a wizard! Which made much sense and got me hooked. 24 hours later I was satisfied with the ending to the series. So happy I made it into a cell phone ebook and sent it to 2 friends. So happy I posted about my glee on livejournal...a friend's response, "uh, wasn't that found to be fake?"

Harry Potter Fake Links

WHAT, WHAT WHA? No Way! It's perfect this version! Harry Potter and Ginny make out all the time. Harry and Ron get wasted on Firewhiskey a bunch! The story is told from the pov of all the main characters for once! Harry is the 7th Horocrux and lives in the end! Everyone gets their own scar! All the things a harry potter fan would desire...and it's fanfic? Well, I guess that makes sense.

In fact, this new Harry Potter? A piece of fanfic by melindaleo called The Seventh Horocrux.
The Admin Team of PhoenixSong.net have recently learned that there is a "leaked" file of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows floating around the internet, specifically in bit torrent form. While people obviously have different opinions on "spoilers" in general, this one is especially troublesome because it is actually a plagiarized version of our own Melindaleo's fan fic, "The Seventh Horcrux", available legitimately here at PhoenixSong: http://www.phoenixsong.net/fanfiction/story/3517/ Please be aware that Melindaleo was in no way involved in re-titling her fan fic as the seventh book or in trying to pass it off as a leaked copy of the seventh book. Someone else did this without her knowledge or permission, and she has been quite upset and worried, especially about the fact that people may be being duped by this situation. - Phoenixsong.net

Yes, it's a 659 page piece of fanfic. And quite possibly, it may turn out to be better than JKR's book 7. Seriously.

Something real of interest to close us out....the new Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix film trailer. For real.

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

No Apologies for Queer White Tears - 2016 BlaQOUT Keynote

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
One of the earliest articles available online about white tears written by a person of color is the 2007 College Student Affairs Journal article “When White Women Cry: How White Women’s Tears Oppress Women of Color” by Mamta Motwani Accapadi. In the article, Accapadi describes a case study of a white woman bursting into tears when being pressed by a woman of color about diversity resources at the college that employs them both. Instead of working on the issues affecting students, the c…
