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

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!
