Hello my fellow little munchkins. How are you all doing? I am doing well. I got some clothes a couple days ago from a thrift store which are in really good condition which I am happy about. I am mostly going to be relaxing today because I typed up three college essays and am about half brain dead right now.
Also, before you ask why I am writing this post even though my name is “thehufflepuffnerdette” is because I named my blog this years ago and I got these little business cards that cost a lot of money about two years ago so until they are gone or I get money I won’t be able to change them as a teenage ya book blogger I don’t make that much money and cannot afford that in this point in my life.
Anyways, why don’t we get into this post already?
She glosses over queer characters, doesn’t add them, or adds them for a money grab:
DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE! DUMBLEDORE!
Anyways if you haven’t heard of this little issue yet. J.K. Rowling has mentioned serval times that Dumbledore is gay right before the first Fantastic Beasts movie came out and than all of a sudden she retracted her statement saying that he never was and that his relationship with Grindelwald is just platonic. Yet, in the second movie it heavily goes over their bond border-lying sexual in it’s nature.
Below is the twitter thread through a series of screenshots that talks about this issue as well as quoting J. K. Rowling for what she said:
While also on this topic there is little to no character in the series that are queer in any aspect which is completely baffling as there are so many people who are lgbtqa+ in the world and you would think there would be characters in this series that identified under the lgbtqa+ spectrum.
She is blatantly racist:
Everyone knowns about the Nagini situation. If you don’t J.K. Rowling made the snake who is being enslaved by a white man and the snake gets its head cut of by a sword an east asian woman which show an immense level of disrespect to east asian woman as a whole due to the only other character besides Cho Chang in the series who was of Asian descent was Nagini who has all of that happen to her is just plain wrong in and on so many levels.
Blaise Zabini is also one of the few characters who are black in this book and he is put into the “bad” house which is Slytherin and is used as a strictly sexual character throughout the books especially as the books got for more mature audiences which is incredibly racist on so many levels.
Her female characters have VERY little real life character:
Hermione, Lily, Luna, Ginny, Pansy, Mrs. Wesley, Lavender, Cho Chang, and Fleur. Many of these characters are focal characters of the story who were on the “good side” beside pansy parkinson. However, they were all treated as the same character. Each and every single one of them has one driving force behind them which is a boy. This is extremely prevalent with Lavender and Mrs. Wesley and Fleur. While being completely and fully prevelant with each and every character in the movies which people who didn’t either read or finish the books would only get which makes it even worse for those people.
Hermione has the driving force of knowledge behind her alongside or Lily and Luna but besides that there isn’t that much that differs from those characters and the rest of the characters. All of the female characters of the book but mainly the movie were treated as it they were “copied and pasted” onto another character.
SO SNAPE, HUH!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! If you didn’t think that this was going to be a point as to why she is trash then just wow because it is clear and as obvious as day.
I mean his character is a child abuser. He constantly abused and bullied little kids such as Neville just because of the past history that he couldn’t even change. Do you know how messed up that is? I mean as a child who was abused by my mother I can at least say from my perspective that they way Snape treated children was somewhat similar to how my mother treated me and that shouldn’t be acceptable no matter his “love for lily”.
On the topic of love for lily. He didn’t really love her. He was infatuated with her. He was almost stalker like at certain points. He only cared about her because he wanted her to love him and once she found someone else who she liked he immediately hated him and in turn in the long run ended up sending James to an early death just because he hated him.
Also there is a huge loophole within the story. If Snape was on Voldemort side in the very beginning as a teenager into the very end of his life than he would have seen Peter the Rat when he was in his young adulthood meaning that Snape would have known Peter was betraying all of his ‘friends’ in which included Lily which means that in the end Lily would have gotten hurt or even killed like she did in the story. So in the very end Snape really never loved Lily. He was a sick, twisted, chauvinistic asshole who didn’t need to belong in the book at all.
The sudden explanations for everything in the Harry Potter Universe:
If you are even new to the book community you have seen at least one post where J.K. Rowling is SUDDENLY explaining another aspect of the world. One really popular example is that all the wizards are pooping on the streets. Another instance was when she suddenly added that one of her characters was jewish but the thing that people got angry about was the name of the character who she was deeming jewish which was Anthony Goldstein. Goldstein was the part of the name that pushed J.K. Rowlings descent into trash-dome even faster then it was going originally.
There has been several other instances where J.K. has done this which each and every time is getting worse and ends up ruining the books for me at least more and more. This feels very half-assed from the author especially since the series is OVER IT HAS BEEN OVER I mean at this point she is just pulling things straight out of her butt to try and please a few fans who still thinks she rains sunshine and rainbows.
What do you think of J.K. Rowling? Do you agree with me or disagree? Has your opinion of her changed as well? Have you heard anything else about her?
