Hey guys, I think it's really sad that some people not only do not understand what HP is like, but even tease others (who are undoudtedly better and smarter) for loving it.

As for me, I was already grown up when I started reading HP, so no one ever teased me because I like it. But I was always a person different to those who surrounded me and I know perfectly well what is it to be an outcast. I think that's why I understand and like so much Harry's character. School mates thought I'm strange and were teasing and bullying but still I was always ready to defend my friends and any person when they needed help, and Harry's the same.

Of course now I became wiser and no one can hurt me with their words, I know that it's their problems not mine. And I'm not ashamed to say to anyone that I'm an ardent HP fan and that I frequently visit fandom site. Yes, many don't understand me and don't support, but I think I'm surrounded with good people for no one tried to tease me. And if they will, I'm good at debating :P I never shy to defend the things I like and the facts I know for sure.

Now all my family except my father read HP books and I'm proud that I helped them to get into, but sadly none of my friends do. But I have snitch friends and that's great :D

And I have good news to all of you, fans, do you realise that every year and every month thousands of children and adults begin reading HP books :D so our population instantly increases and there're less and less non-readers and haters. Let's enjoy reading and be happy. :P

People tease you? Seriously? Have you cursed them?

I get bugged at work, because I'm such a Potter Geek (and proud of it!). But nothing seriously. That's just pathetic to the abuser.

Hi Neiser,
I just LOVE your dancing Spidey, it's freakin cool.

And getting back to the subject here, no one should be afraid of who they are and what they like or what they do (as long as they're not hurting people in the process).
If everyone liked the same things, it would be a VERY BORING WORLD ! ! People who tease are just ignorant jerks and probably very insecure. I'm 37 years old and I'm proud to be a HP fan. I tell everyone that cares to listen and if they don't like it .... they don't have to ....it's a free country. (atleast where I'm at :P )
Take care HP fans ! o@

i havnt been teased about it yet but i would be
its weird that ppl would tease u though cuz harry potter is huge
even adults like it
and the movies always rank 1 in the box office

EXACTLY ! ! I think most people that don't like these types of books or films, don't have a vivid imagination. When you read these types of books, if you don't have a great imagination, you can't see it. So I guess I'm complimenting EVERY HARRY POTTER FAN - WE HAVE A GREAT IMAGINATION :P o@

Hey Nymph,

I definitely can identify with being grown and not really caring one way or the other about being teased about reading HP books. Which believe it or not is not so much teasing, than more like a disapproving look or snide remark from family and colleagues. They can't believe I'm into" a children's witchcraft book." Most do not have the open-mindedness to disregard the packaging and appreciate the profound story telling of JK. I read DH in about 2 days, reading at every opportunity. By day two, my husband quipped that he wanted a divorce. He was kidding of course, but that is how deep it gets. Right? You kind of shut off the world around you and immerse yourself in this extraodinary universe JK has created for you. My mother simply shakes her head in disapproval, but my cousins, little sister, and most recently, my older sister have all found the scathing skeptical glances well worth it!

Viva Harry Potter!

I thought I told you, yup, Kahl sure did. Funny thing is I kept reading, even after his short tantrum. Matter of fact, I think I finished not
too long after . :P

Hi Fawkesy =/
It's a pity that your hubby is not a HP man, hope that he's just not YET :D But I see you have a fan sister, that's great.
When I was waiting for a book to come I told Alex that I'll be absent from the real world for a couple of days and so it was, but he's already got used to that. :nuts:

No one teases me.

I'm 25, my friends from college that are my age are all into HP, though probably not to the depth I am...I don't think anyones read the books a squillion times like me. One of my best friends is 35 and she definitely thought my HP love was a little odd, but didn't tease me about it. My sister in law is 37 and she's as much of a Potterhead as I am. She tells me her co-workers were reading DH at their desks during their lunch breaks! haha!

Weird anyone could tease about HP, its so popular. But silly people will latch onto anything to get a dig in *eye roll*

Just ignore them...they're missing out.

I dont get teased either thankfully :P But thats only because the vast majority of people my age where Im from, all have read Harry Potter and adore it! But some not to the extent of some of us :P So its quite a normal thing here - to have read the books a squillion times lol :hmm: My twin sister had never read them up until we done PS as a novel in class but she still didnt read the others, it was only until before the release of DH that she decided to give them a go and now she cant get enough of them! :D

Hm no one teases me. All my friends know that I'm a huge fan (they are not), and they can only tease me as a joke, like "She wrote another book?? OMG!!! Is it necessary for me to accompany you going to the shop at 8.00 am??"

im often worried about that actually. my friends like potter to, but coz im the most "obsessed" they do make fun of me a little but not in a way that bothers me at all. in my yearbook photo though i decided to wear my hp scarf coz we had to have an object that linked with us. i was a bit worried that people would think i was weird but it was fine, nobody batted an eyelid. even my friends wanted to try it on. youd think the majority of people as well do enjoy reading potter so it should only be a small sad minority who would pick on people for their love of the books. and if this is the case, it truly is sad coz they dont know what they have been missing out on!

I definetly have, loads of people in my class tease me because at breaktimes all I do is talk to this boy who is the only one who understands my HP obsession, they all think HP is just a set of books and it's so much more, it's an amzing and terrifying world. The teasing isn't helped by my English teacher always going on that I have to read different things!
