Since I plan to go book shopping for my birthday this week, anyone has suggestions of December/Christmas appropriated books that I could get?

Hey Anna! I'm actually enjoying the beginning of the book. Her toughts on feminism and how you don't have to be perfect about it really spoke to me along with the difficulty but neccesity to acknowledge our privileges. I'm still early on my reading, but I'll keep you posted!

Even if I completely agree with Hermione on the bottom of things, I always tought she was kind of condescending & paternalistic in her way of dealing with the house-elves issues. But she's young and experience will teach her to do things properly if she wants change.

Yes and no. It shows that you can't just free them against their will, but Winky's story also shows how intrinsically wrong the whole house-elves system is, since that really destroyed her. Hermione's moral argument stands, it's her process that is problematic.

Unfortunately, I think she is at the moment. But Hagrid has both the knowledge and the enthusiasm to become a really good teacher. He just needs more experience and self confidence. I wished he had been offered more guidance at the beginning of his teaching career.

That's a good point, champions were not supposed to be 14!

That's true that the pressure to go with a date (and even the obligation in Harry's case) is a downside of the event. Students should just be able to go together as groups, regardless if they have a date or not.

It's important because it's a moment where schools put rivalry aside and just enjoy an evening together (well, maybe not Ron & Harry, but in general!). Plus, it has a ceremonial aspect that marked the importance of the tournament for the wizarding community.

I don't think that's quite so simple, working or not is not the issue, the problem is cruelty and absence of rights. Of course Hogwarts house elves are happy with their work, but just saw Dobby & Winkie & even Kreacher. You can't say they had especially happy lives.

Yes, she lives with that since she joined the wizarding world and them saw other injustices, like what happened to Lupin. Then, she saw what happened to Winkie and this was just too much, she felt it was something she had to act on.

Inequalities are a big problem in the wizarding world. Between wizards and other creatures & between wizards (muggle-borns, werewolves, nepotism). House-elves is the most obvious exemples, but in this world of traditions, there would be a lot of work to do about that.
