He should be a Gryffindor, not a Slytherin, that's the evil house!

So why are there so many evil Slytherin stamps?

Look up Slytherin pride and there's loads of stamps that imply that Slytherin IS the house of assholes.


No way would I want to be in that awful house. How can anyone like it? If you're in Slytherin, you're a death eater/murderer... true fans know that!

Albus Potter should be in one of the other houses... any other house than Slytherin.

“Albus Severus," Harry said quietly, so that nobody but Ginny could hear, and she was tactful enough to pretend to be waving to Rose, who was now on the train, "you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew.”

I don't care. Don't patronise me, I know that quote. Slytherin is still the house of racism and cruelty. Do you really think Albus would join such a disgusting house? As a Harry Potter fan, I refuse to accept Slytherin and people who choose to identify with it. Slytherins are like Nazis. Salazar Slytherin was basically Hitler and wanted all muggle-borns to be killed. That's why he left a basilisk in the chamber of secrets. In the final book, who do the Slytherins support? Voldemort, because they agree with his regime. If you are in Slytherin, you are a person who will be a Death Eater. And after the series, even with Voldemort gone, it's still a severely racist, sociopathic house.

You cannot defend Slytherin. YOU CANNOT. This is a nice drawing but Albus clearly chose to be a Gryffindor, because Harry told him he could. He would never choose the house for evil children.

You're a moron. That's all the response you're worthy of.

And how is that true?

Face it, almost every mention of Slytherin in the books is negative, and the most important Slytherin character, Snape, is evil for most of the series until we finally found out he was good all along, but still nasty to certain people, like Neville.

Rowling could have easily made a nice Slytherin character, but she chose not to. Slughorn doesn't count either, because it was him who gave Tom Riddle the information that helped him become Lord Voldemort. And again, the thing with the basilisk. The house is pure evil.

And since most people online who identify with Slytherin choose to act like assholes to people in order to stay in character, I have no choice but to dislike them. Trust me, I wish I could like Slytherins, and the house, but there is almost nothing good about it. They use the word "mudblood" all the time, which is the wizarding equivalent of the n word. How is that a nice house?

(Buy the way, my "house" is Ravenclaw)

According to HP canon, Merlin was a Slytherin, and he championed Muggleborn rights, and started the Order of Merlin to honour those who supported that cause.

Most prejudiced Slytherins gained their beliefs from their families, not their House. Harry could have been a Slytherin, and there was nothing evil about him. (Don't even try to give me the "Horcrux" argument - it's made clear that it's his resourcefulness, determination and disregard for rules that made him a potential Slytherin). If he hadn't met Ron or listened to Hagrid, and had been placed there, he would not automatically become "evil".

Slughorn certainly DOES count, since a Muggleborn was one of his favourite students, and giving somebody you thought you could trust information about an unsavoury subject, then spending the rest of your life regretting it, does not make someone a bad person. 
Snape was a very bitter man, but also a very brave and possibly the most complex and human character in the series.
Draco Malfoy was an arrogant snob, but not evil. In the end, the Malfoys cared more for family than for power. I put most of his behaviour down to cognitive dissonance - growing up in an aristocratic family, constantly being told that you are superior, then going to school and finding people who don't treat you as such and actually outperform you in many things - he turned to spiteful bullying as a way to reassert what he thought was the proper order of things.

And we only really hear from a few Slytherins. The vast majority of the house remains quiet, never an insulting word heard from them. Most Death Eaters are implied to be Slytherins, but nothing suggests that most Slytherins become Death Eaters.
And JK Rowling herself has stated that some Slytherin students returned to the school with Slughorn, to defend it against the Death Eaters.

Yet you insist on lumping them all together, exaggerating their faults and downplaying or dismissing any evidence to the contrary. It's incredibly shallow, simplistic and basically ignorant. More damage has been done throughout the centuries by people with such self-righteous and judgmental attitudes as yours than by people who are attracted to the darker side of things.

Would it not be considered 'Racism' for you to say that every single Slytherin is evil? Just because someone is a Slytherin does not make them evil. Whereas yes, the original founder of Slytherin was certainly not a persons of good nature. However, that does not mean they are all evil.

You are more than welcome to feel that Albus should be in Gryffindor, but I really don't see why you had to come onto someone else's art and go off on them. You are welcome to have a different opinion than mine, but it is rude to yell at me for what I think.

YES! This is exactly how I pictured him, I feel like Harry would see himself in Al and therefore try to shelter him as much as he could. Not wanting him to experience anything evil or cruel like he did.
