Female Fantasy III

Perfecto.

May they be forever alone for their elitist douche-baggery.

I was recently interviewing the woman who founded Her Universe and we were talking specifically about women and geekdom. I asked about the rise of girls in geek culture and she very accurately corrected me: There is no “rise” of geek girls. We’ve always been here. Girls are just as nerdy as dudes are. Ladies have always been interested in sci fi and fantasy and video games - we just don’t talk about it a lot because men are assholes.

No, not all feminists are lesbians. But if we were, how would that make the fight any less valid? Is our purpose somehow solidified and scaled by how much we are personally invested in men? And if that is so, don’t you now see why we need feminism?

Sometimes I’m internally like “How is that a trigger?, ” then I realize other people have different life experiences from me, they don’t owe me their story, and I move the fuck on.

did she get a haircut

does it make anyone else uncomfortable that they changed her entire race because she went out with Ron in their sixth year
isn’t that what happened???
they changed a character’s entire race because she as a character became important and relevant for a short amount of time

Wow.

Umm, no. They did not change her entire race simply because she dated Ron. Actually think about it. Up until the sixth book, she was a background character that was only ever mentioned in passing, so she wasn’t given a physical description. Then in the sixth book, Lavender was finally described, as having ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’. Well, the first few Harry Potter movies came out before the Half-Blood Prince book did, so the casting directors did what they wanted with the character. 
Another thing, the Lavender Brown from the first few movies only appeared in the first few movies. Lavender didn’t even appear in the 4th and 5th movies, because again, she was a background character, and wasn’t vital to the story. The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books, and it didn’t fit what the directors had, so they had to recast her. It was not because she dated Ron.

Somebody spread this shit because I refuse to have this turn into some social justice bullshit

Bullshit. That little black girl is credited, in the cast list and IMDb, as Lavender Brown.
That is who Lavender was until she became more relevant, and they made her white
It is racist, stop shoving your fingers in your ears and pretending this isn’t what happened.

Naw, Harry’s eyes can be blue.
Lily’s eyes can be brown. 
Fred and George don’t really need the money to start their business. 
It’s not really important who gives Harry the gillyweed. 
Let’s make Hogwarts the only coed school in the TWT. 
Dudley Dursley doesn’t need a redemption.
It’s not really a big deal if we let Peter Pettigrew live, is it? 
Let’s have Snape be creepy with Lily’s dead body. 
DID YOU PUT YOUR NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIRE?!!!!!!!!
Let’s give Ron’s best lines to Hermione instead. 
Fuck Dumbledore’s entire back-story. 
THIS MINOR CHARACTER CAN’T BE BLACK, THOUGH. THAT WOULD JUST BE SPITTING IN THE FACE OF BOOK CANON.

The closest Rowling come to describing Lavender Brown’s race is…by not describing it. We’re supposed to assume that she’s white because we’re supposed to assume they would describe Lavender’s race if she was anything but white.

White people will move mountains to justify their totally unjustifiable inclusion in everything. Arrogant pieces of shit.

"The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books"that never happened.

LITERALLY WHAT IS THE HARM IN SAYING A CHARACTER IS BISEXUAL NOTHING OF PREVIOUS HETERO RELATIONSHIPS IS GLOSSED OVER IT GIVES REPRESENTATION TO A GROUP WHO IS OFTEN ERASED AND NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO FIGHT ABOUT THIS KIND OF SHIT WHY IS THIS EVEN A PROBLEM

can we please remember that Time magazine rigged their own online poll and refused to have Laverne Cox as person of the year, despite overwhelming support 

they never said why they did this, nor have they apologized for it
