"guess we cant have different opinions on tumblr"
nah son. an opinion is like “orange juice is nasty” or “fall out boy is overrated”
"your gender identity is ridiculous and you dont deserve to have it respected" is straight up bullshit and you should be called out on it
Things you should NEVER say to fangirls:
Whovians: I skipped nine.
Potterheads: They’re just books.
Tolkienites: Why didn’t the eagles just drop them off?
Merlinians: You must have known it was going to end like that.
Hunters: I skipped the first three seasons to meet cas.
Sherlockians: I hate Mrs Hudson.
Hiddlestoners or Cumberbabes: But he is ugly.
All fandoms: Its not real. Its only a stupid story.
"They’re just books" applies TO ANYONE WHO READS AND OBSESSES OVER BOOKS, not specifically to “Potterheads.”
Seriously, I obsess over Stephen King’s The Dark Tower and Mercedes Lackeys Mage Wind books and Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Legacy series and dozens of other novels and if anyone ever said to me “but they’re just books” I would literally hiss and growl because books changed my life, books made me who I am, and if they’re “just” books, how could they change my life in such profound ways?
The Harry Potter books NEVER did that for me, but so many other books DID, so claiming “they’re just books” specifically for the Potterheads in terms of things never to say to fangirls is narrow-sighted and not at all well-thought through.
