UPDATE: I have deleted my account. On principles alone, I am not a Slytherin. I believe in workers rights, free speech, equal rights, feminism. I'm horrified at the racism and the need for power exhibited by Slytherins in the book. I don't like the house or its moral values. And, yes, I have traits the house prizes BUT I don't prize these traits in myself. I understand why I have them, but I don't believe they are GOOD traits. Therefore, I got rid of my account. Sooner or later, I'll rejoin the site, but right now I'm feeling burned by that Sorting Hat. (And, yes, that is how strongly I feel about it. I don't care if it's silly. It does matter to me. I might be a lazy feminist, but I am one. It's like the Sorting Hat said "oh you have interest in moneyed people, therefore you must be share the same politics as Dick Cheney." Yes, I like moneyed people, but they tend to be LIBERAL moneyed people who worked to make art and literature accessible to everyone, and who care that those less fortunate than them have liberty and rights as well. IT DOES MATTER even if it is just a fictional house from a fictional book about fictional people.)
