Actually, a wizard wouldn’t need the trans prefix.

Because they would simply be able to change their biosex with a spell.

As should be their right.

Also, can we talk about how excessively influential the Harry Potter series is in the magic/witchcraft fantasy genre, despite actually having subpar plots, characters, and especially worldbuilding compared to other, less popular works?

Like, Harry Potter is the first character people think of when you say “wizard” or “magic wand”, even though he probably doesn’t deserve to be.

Well. It’s not always quality that makes something influencial. But do you know another novel/series like harry potter that is more worthy of that influence in your opinion?

Earthsea series by Ursula LeGuinn is pretty excellent as a fantasy children’s series. Less traditional “wizards and witches” but better written and way better politics https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earthsea

Harry Potter is the kind of book that I would recommend to a very young child who is starting to read novels. But I fully agree with you.

Rules:

  1. Be civil and nice.
  2. Try not to excessively repost, as a rule of thumb, wait at least 2 months to do it if you have to.
