    Apparently Yaniv also has to pay the women he tried to make wax his lady nuts. Pretty sure that sped is on government benefits so the Canadian tax payer will be footing that bill. :lol:

    My disdain for HP is finally explained to me: Harry Potter is a girl, and the HP universe is an ignorant liberal female fantasy masquerading as a children's story for young adults.

    Rowling is about as cliche a liberal white woman as you can get. I still find it funny that Dolores Umbridge was obviously created as a satire of Thatcherite women, but all these years later much more resembles the average feminist. Seems to be a lot of examples of Rowling trying to satirize something only for it to eventually look more like the thing she supports.

    I loved the HP books as a kid but I was only an ardent fan up to book 4 (which came out in 5th grade for me).

    The criticism of Harry Potter as an unrealistic male is bizarre for anyone that believes in the 80/20 rule of male hierarchy (which I'm pretty sure includes Dak). Beta men (and lower) are always a minority by definition, and I'm willing to bet that male readers of children's fiction are disproportionately introspective and beta as well. Fiction is broadly the entertainment of weak men, and where authors interject hyper-masculinity alpha protagonists can also be found meek losers, e.g. Robert E. Howard.

    Anecdotally, most of the contemporary children's entertainment I can recall consuming as a kid also featured similarly beta male leads: Doug, Hey Arnold, Spongebob, various Goosebumps characters, etc, and the one major exception was Johnny Bravo, a negative stereotype. Even internationally, Evangelion became a ground-breaking success in anime in the 90s with its extremely weak male lead Shinji, who has been recapitulated 100s of times since. This may very well, of course, be a part of a worldwide plot to promote male femininity onto impressionable youths by the Judeo-Bolshevik-owned mass media, but Harry Potter was far from unique in that for its time.

    In the US, I can't think of that much media with strong alpha protagonists in general, particularly among stuff that would be considered children-friendly. Johnny Quest was pretty macho (and one of my favorites), but it was also exclusively about men and boys. Looney Toons had its various characters show their heterosexuality, but generally as a part of a gag that involved the use of a female character as a trap.

    I think another explanation is that for most of humanity's existence, culture and politics were dominated by a tiny minority of men who excelled in most things, including trials of masculinity. Various liberal movements saw the eventual legal emancipation of those men, though nothing that can undo biology. Nations have always needed less capable men to labor in the fields, in the factories, and on the front lines. Propagation of the species demanded that they still eventually get married and have children, but usually enabled through the institutions of family and religion. Today, the fields are filled with non-citizens, the factories have moved to China, and the draft has been over for 50 years. Further, traditional family values have eroded and sexual emancipation allows women to seek out higher-status men, so these weak beta men, while still playing a vital part of male gender/sexual norms as defined by millions of years of mammalian biology, become a new market for artists like Rowling and Anno to exploit.

    As an aside, this bit reminded me of all those times Bugs Bunny pretended to be a woman only to smash his target with a frying pan or whatever. A literal trap.

    Interesting take. I've been reading a bunch of non fiction lately but sometimes it's nice to 'escape' into fiction once in a while. I've never read any of the HP books (and don't plan to) but I do still read some science fiction and fantasy once in a while.

    I have never read HP books, so I am at the mercy of the article author's description, but there are several ways in which HP as described veers from simply a less masculine male to being outright female, the most important likely being the missing sense of "protecc".

    I never thought of Potter as a female character. Still seems like a stretch. All the males and females surrounding him have blatant sex drives and romantic intentions, but that never seemed like it would fit in with Potter who seemed to me like the human embodiment of grief.

    Also it's ironic to see this theory being thrown around when I recall Jordan Peterson referencing Harry Potter all the time due to the many parallels it has to classic masculine archetypes or whatever.

    Or both are onto something and it's not as simple as Harry is a stand-in for a female. :lol:

    what i instantly noticed is that the article is saying that waxing male genitalia and waxing female genitalia are apparently 2 completely different skill-sets that each require separate training

    so instead of trying to get her balls waxed at a place that only waxes pussies
    this big-boobed transgendered person who still has balls could have just gone out to a gayborhood and had her balls waxed at a place that waxes balls every five min which she prolly ended up doing before she even filed the fucking lawsuit :lol:

    most of the criticism of harry potter comes out of the fact that men write differently than women
    Stephen King books are obviously written by a male, Stephanie Meyer books are obviously written by a woman
