In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, all of the students Professor McGonagall is teaching to dance are Gryffindors. Which means, Hufflepuffs would be taught by Professor Sprout, Flitwick would be teaching the Ravenclaws, and guess who the Slytherins get to waltz with?

“Put ………you hand …………….on …… …………….waist.”

This seems to be a popular topic on tumblr as of late with a lot of harry potter blogs but I was wondering what your opinions are on transgendered characters in the wizarding world. Do you think it could be a thing and if so, which characters do you feel like could very much be transgendered? I know a favorite among some blogs is trans*sirius
thewitchinghourkwcw thewitchinghourkwcw Said:

I definitely think it could (and should!) be a thing.

I think it’s also a very interesting idea since it is so much easier for witches and wizards to change their appearances at will than it is for muggles- there’s polyjuice of course, but also lots of different human transfigurations, charms, etc… I think the experience of a trans* witch or wizard would be in some ways pretty unique.

Of course, there’s also the problem with the very gender-binary paradigm of “witch or wizard,” which I think we’ve mentioned on the show before… what would a more gender neutral name or pronoun be? Any ideas, dear listeners? Let us know what you guys think about this!

I also feel like there's a lot of context in the books for Remus/Sirius. There is an entire essay written on why people tend to ship these two.
thewitchinghourkwcw thewitchinghourkwcw Said:

There really has been a lot written about the two of them as a pair! I’m not sure if this is the essay you’re referring to, but there was a great editorial on Mugglenet a couple of months ago about Remus/Sirius and the lack of queer relationships in Harry Potter in general that I really enjoyed reading!

Check it out here:

If you were referring to a different essay, we’d love to read it- send it our way!
