So this tripe appeared on my Twitter feed.

The tripe above was retweeted by someone I know and appeared on my Twitter. The original poster was from some harry potter “fandom” account., and I use ” “, cause anyone who believes that shit isn’t a fan of Harry Potter, nor understand actual humans.

Now I’ve only see the movies so my knowledge of the Potter world is limited but I’m going to have a say anyway.

First point: the Weasley’s don’t have a house elf. We can take from this that you know, maybe they don’t agree with them. A maybe there’s nothing wrong with letting people serve IF THEY WANT TO, and the issue isn’t slavery per say, but the ill treatment some elves suffer though SEE GODDAMN DOBBY!

Point Two: Werewolves. the children are taught that werewolves are dangerous. Because, as Sirius, and even Lupin will attest to. WEREWOLVES DON’T HAVE MUCH CONTROL WHEN THEY’VE TRANSFORMED. So maybe, JUST MAYBE, his desire to not be touched by Lupin was him not wanting to risk being attacked. IE IT’S UNDERSTANDABLE AT THE MOMENT IT HAPPENED! He warms up to Lupin once he himself calms down and can take stock. Fear and adrenalin doesn’t just switch off when danger has past, it’s lingers.

Speaking of fear

Point the Third: Ron being uncomfortable around Hagrid. Ron meets Hagrid when he is 10. At 10 regular adults are tall to you. So coming across a half-giant who is about twice the size of a regular adult. Would be MASSIVLY intimidating, and would make ANY child uncomfortable.

As much as J K Rowling did a great thing with the books. Over analysing every single line for context that isn’t there helps no one. And what’s worse with shit like this; Is that the authors themselves just need to sitting and nod, claiming that’s what they were going for, and people will eat it up.

News Flash. Things are NOT that nuanced. Sometimes a banana, is just a banana. Deal with it.

Vent over.
