“I think that all women are witches, in the sense  that a witch is a magical being. And a wizard, which is a male version  of a witch, is kind of revered, and people respect wizards. But a witch,  my god, we have to burn them. It’s the male chauvinistic society that  we’re living in for the longest time, 3,000 years or whatever. And so I  just wanted to point out the fact that men and women are magical beings.  We are very blessed that way, so I’m just bringing that out. Don’t be  scared of witches, because we are good witches, and you should  appreciate our magical power,” — Yoko Ono
When I read this quotation, I remembered how I felt about the word “witch” before Harry Potter; Jo changed my reaction to the word from negative to positive. I imagine it’s not just my feelings about the word that have been changed, given the size of the readership; that’s the rule with Harry Potter: you’re never the only one. In my books, that’s win one for the lady team in the language department. There’s a lot of negativity in the language of women, and it’s grand to overcome some of that. Thanks, Jo.

I want to be Minerva McGonagall when I am of advanced years.
Yes. This is my plan. Be Daniel Radcliffe, and then when I am old, Minerva McGonagall. It is a Good Plan.

Merope - squib?

homemadedarkmark:

oh-potter-you-rotter:

Just to put this all together with the issue because I still have messages about it… As far as I gather, it was not clear if she was a squib or not. Most of you are saying she wasn’t a Squib and I agree. She didn’t use magic to get Riddle. She made a love potion after all. I think with the whole depressing atmosphere that she may have suppressed performing magic or if she attempted, it was pathetic =).

That is what happened. That’s what Dumbledore thing happened C:

The Gaunt family is very genetically weak — their obsession with blood purity lead to what is called inbreeding depression — bad eyes are a common symptom of this in humans. I think that this inbreeding weakens magical power — contradicting the view that pure is better. (We can see that they have strong magic in their blood: one generation of outbreeding produces Voldemort.)

Some of her poor magical skill was connected to the unrequited love — at least, later: it’s paralleled with Tonk’s loss of power. Merope was abused, but so was Harry — the Dursleys wanted to crush the magic right out of him. Perhaps it is a sign of his strength that this could not be done. And then there’s Ariana (who didn’t lose her power, but lost something, over a single event of abuse).

I don’t care if he’s gay - and I don’t care who he hooked up with - whether it was a male or a female. It changes nothing about the story for me.

/end Dumbledore’s sexual preference talk for the rest of this Tumblr’s life.

THANK YOU! I was like…DOES IT REALLY MATTER IF HE’S GAY ‘CAUSE IT JUST MAKES HIM MORE OF A BADARSE VOLDECHUCKER if you ask me!

It matters to me.

……because now I can ship AD/GG and not have my head torn off :D

Trivialities I know. but no, it doesn’t take away from the story at ALL <3

*butting in*

Oddly, in a way, it changes things for me. Not that he had a thing with men in particular but that he was in love and that it was an evil person. The fact that he was gay just makes it more complicated for poor little Dumbledore cause lets face it, he was in love like a million years ago when gay-ness was so taboo.

AD/GG = <3

That’s really interesting, the way you phrased it: “that he was in love and that it was an evil person.” I hadn’t thought about it precisely that way before, because I don’t generally look at people as being either good or evil and neither does Jo. Despite that, though, the concept of evil in magic and deed is present, and a person who commits these spells or acts is touched by them, changed. To love such a person — when love is such a Good Power that the Truly Evil (ie. Voldemort) are incapable of it (either by cause or effect) — is would change a person, as well. Perhaps this has something to do with the paucity of love later in Dumbledore’s life.
