The Harry Potter Debate
#51
I am almost afraid to post on this topic, but I have grew up with the books (I was 11 when the first book came out so I as young enough to be seriously looking for owls flying during the day until I turned 12 and was quite disappointed that I wasn't going to Hogwarts).

My main argument with people who oppose the books is that they aren't giving young readers much credit. Yes, most of them look at the magic and go oh neat wouldn't it be awesome to do that and have no consequences. Most of them will also do the same thing for Superman, Spiderman, and My Little Pony. Yet, no one says that watching Spiderman cartoons leads children to go courting spider bites. Yes, he's and awful role model, so is Punch and Judy puppet shows and your neighbor down the street possibly. Everyday kids see bad role models and the occult. It's better to just let them read the books and if they have questions or are looking for owls sit them down and explain. Have them read the bible passages and talk to them. Book protest simply serve to make people curious.

Oh the note of Dumbuldore being gay, it was so not present in the book that she had to tell the movie director that he was gay.

Quote:Rowling told the audience that while working on the planned sixth Potter film, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," she spotted a reference in the script to a girl who once was of interest to Dumbledore. A note was duly passed to director David Yates, revealing the truth about her character.

The man making the movies couldn't even tell from just reading the books! The chance of a little kid reading it and figuring it out mind numbingly low.
