do you ever think of how harry, ron and hermione could barely handle a horcrux at 17/18 when they were taking turns being close to it
and ginny tried her hardest to fight off a horcrux (and occasionally succeeded) - which she poured her heart and soul into - so that she wouldn’t hurt anyone
at age 11
and just wonder why???
I often wonder why people have a problem with Ginny in general. Why do they find issues with her not being around for a long time and then suddenly popping back - because, of course, learning just how much she had been fooled and how much damaged she had caused isn’t enough cause for depression. Because she was convinced by an older, smarter male that she should trust him and do his bidding, and not one of her six brothers noticed about it, how her parents didn’t see it too - who the first words out of her parents mouths when they learned were blaming her; the victim. Being depressed generally doesn’t lead to much social interaction, does it?
Harry thinks she’s embarassed when they meet again in the following year. My guess is that actually she feels ashamed.
And, well, going by what Dumbledore says in PS/SS; no secret is ever kept in Hogwarts, so we can guess the rest of the students learned about it soon enough. Victim-blaming is hard to deal with.
No one wonders WHEN she and Luna became friendly - specially considering how odd and outcast Luna is.
I wonder why people have an issue when she starts to date around and to me somewhat mean - I wonder how they can’t see that those are too loud words to distract from the cracks left inside; boys that she could deal with without so much reverence that it clouded her judgment - as Harry and Tom had been.
No one asks why her hexes are so strong; but self-protection must have been something she put all her effort on.
I wonder why people are surprised when Harry falls in love with her; when the first thing he liked about Cho was that she was feisty and sure of herself.
I wonder how people fail to see that she’s a survivor.
And most of all, I wonder why would anyone hate a survivor for being damaged.
I wonder if they ever saw Ginny at all.
“But if she says, ‘I love you,’ and I say, ‘I know,’ it’s beautiful and it’s acceptable and it’s funny,” he pleaded. “The point is, I’m not worried about myself anymore; I’m worried about her.”

Things that don’t make you less of a feminist:
- Being in a loving relationship.
- Being submissive.
- Wearing makeup.
- Being a housewife.
- Wearing dresses.
- High heels.
Things that do make you less of a feminist:
- Shaming women for doing any of these things.
Yes. 10000x thank you.
"Brown eyed people are responsible for the fact that you have electricity. Many of the components for generating and transmitting electricity were invented by brown eyed people.
Brown eyed people gave us our alphabet. Brown eyed people gave us our numeration system. Brown eyed people gave us the paper on which we write these anonymous letters to me that tell me that brown eyed people are inferior.
Brown eyed people are the originators, the ones who founded every major religion on Earth. No white people have ever founded a major religion.
Now you need to realize the contributions that have been made to society, to civilization by brown eyed people, by PEOPLE OF COLOR.
I’m talking about people of color here folks. And most of us are not aware of those things because we live in a racist society.
And because we are educated by a racist school system that only teaches us about white contributions.”
