you know what’s really fucking cool about quidditch?
there arent separate teams for boys and girls
wizards don’t give a shit what your gender is as long as you can hold your own on the pitch
muggle sports should take note
one of the coolest things about the hp universe in general is that, because guys and girls are equally good at magic, girls aren’t physically at a disadvantage in fights so it seems like the wizarding world didn’t have sexism
Ok, as much as I appreciate this post, there’s a reason sports in real life are separated by gender. It’s not sexism, it’s the fact that, let’s say, men can run a faster 5k than women can. Or the fact that men’s bodies can exert and sustain more force than women can. You don’t need that in Quidditch because, with the exception of beaters, it’s a fairly non-contact sport and everyone goes exactly as fast as their broom can take them. I understand arguing that women’s sports should get the same media representation, funding, etc. as men’s sports do, but there’s definitely a fair and logical reason that women and men play in separate competitions.
