HELLO yes I am here for the discourse: as the symbol of the Hallows is pretty much analogous to a swastika (a cultural symbol appropriated into a fascist cause) it disturbs me that so many fans wear it
holy shit i literally never thought about that. it’s completely true that, in universe, it became a symbol of oppression, and of oppressors who were proud to oppress - purebloods who hated muggles and muggleborns in this case. i never thought about that before!!
i’m not gonna jump on anybody for wearing it because i’m pretty sure that 99% of the time they’re just thinking “oh hey it’s that easy to draw/make symbol that’s associated with that book i love!” but yeah if you wore it in-universe people would rightfully give you some pretty dirty looks because you’d be a shithead
again i’m not gonna jump on anybody for it because it’s obviously not anywhere near like actually wearing a swastika (or even, i’d argue, like wearing a hydra symbol from Marvel comics) and because i think it has transcended its in-fic meaning and just become “the harry potter symbol” but yeah there are some pretty fucked up and tense in-fiction reasons not to wear it; the people who wore it in-universe were literally fascist terrorists. some food for thought, for sure!
