There are three things that the Harry Potter fandom seems to universally agree upon:
1. Umbridge is awful
2. Maggie Smith is a perfect Professor McGonagall
3. Everyone should be at least slightly bothered by DID YOU PUT YOUR NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIRE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!
4. book ginny is 100 times better than movie ginny
5. where the fuck was peeves
6. Voldemort’s death is fucking ridiculous
7. Karen Gillian is Lily when she was younger
“I fall in love with human beings based on who they are,” she tells the magazine, “not based on what they do or what sex they are.”
DID SHAILENE JUST SAY WHAT WE ALL WANTED TO HEAR? SHE IS LIKE THE FIRST ACTRESS WHO SAYS IT LIKE THAT. SHE DIDNT SAY SHE WAS GAY BUT SHE IS JUST LIKE ALL OF US. WE ALWAYS WANTED PEOPLE TO SAY THAT WE FALL IN LOVE WITH PEOPLE AND NOT WITH A GENDER AND FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT. YOU GO SHAILENE WOODLEY.
Cosmo, you sexist piece of shit.
Oh boo. There’s Wanda, his wife, grinning evilly in the background as he’s saying it.
Besides, context is important. Remember what this episode was? "Queen for a Day." The one with Trixie Tang’s birthday?
The entire point of Wanda hitting Timmy with this wish was to teach a moral to him. Timmy was hitting a mental roadblock trying to come up with a birthday present for Trixie, not having a clue what “a girl” would want for her birthday. Cue the wish forcing him into a female body and… Still pretty much liking the exact same stuff. And as he later found out, Trixie liked the same things he did, even if gender norms didn’t fit for it all.
In the end, Timmy ends up giving Trixie the present she wanted in a comic book store, but fakes getting upset over it when he gives it to her because her friends thought it was only for boys. But, she WAS grateful.
And this moment? This right here? Our male protagonist, Timmy, is now getting playfully mocked by Cosmo for suddenly being a girl. That’s going to teach boys, through the eyes of Timmy, how stupid it is to be demeaning to females for being female.
This episode was basically a giant slap in the face to the idea of gender norms. And you’re still calling Cosmo sexist for reinforcing the moral, which is how stupid even casual sexism is?
Childhood is firmly not ruined, thank you.
Wanda was like so badass, she was constantly doing shit like this to Timmy and Cosmo both, like, why do we not still watch this show in my house?
Welcome, my friends, to my humble little corner of the Vinkus. You may call me Maggie. I am Ozian at heart with a bit of Underland in me, though my soul lies in the Scottish Highlands with my ancestors. I am completely and shamelessly obsessed and in love with both Adam Lambert and David Cook, a.k.a. my "Idol Babies" since they were both on American Idol, and I track the tags of both their names, as well as the Glambert tag. Adam is also the reason that I now picture Fiyero from Wicked with pale blue eyes instead of the dark brown that I used to picture him with. My URL is actually a reference to three of the songs on Adam's second album, "Trespassing," and they are Cuckoo, Outlaws of Love, and my personal favorite on the album, written as a lullaby for his former boyfriend Sauli, Nirvana.

(Adam and Sauli split because they were constantly across the country from each other due to their careers, but they remain good friends, so it's okay. There was no fight and no tears involved on either side, thankfully.)
(If you weren't aware, Adam actually had a brief run as Fiyero in San Diego before he auditioned for Idol and got famous. There are videos on YouTube of him doing Dancing Through Life and As Long As You're Mine, and if memory serves, I believe that the Elphaba he's with in those videos is Teal Wicks, but I might be remembering that wrong.)
I also suffer from a disease that the ancient Romans referred to as "cacoethes scribendi," or "an insatiable desire to write."
PS: I track my URL tag so if you wanna get my attention and don't feel like messaging me, feel free to just tag me, instead. :)
