UW-Lacrosse Student Calls Harry Potter Mural “Transphobic & Supports White Power”
The depiction of this metamorphosis “represents our ideal society and everything I am trying to fight against,” wrote the offended student, whose name is redacted. “It represents white power. Man power. Cis power. Able power. Class power. ECT [sic] ect. I am angry that I know the people who put this mural up, and I am anger [sic] because I know the people who let this mural be put up. Like I said earlier, maybe I am being a little sensitive, but it is how I feel. This represents, to me, our society, and I do not want it up on this wall. Why do we need a BEFORE and AFTER?” via Heatstreet
If you had UW-La Crosse as the first Wisconsin university to make national headlines for something completely asinine, you are a winner! La Crosse stood around 10 to 1 odds with Madison the clear favorites. Sources out of Madtown say they are shocked La Crosse beat them to the punch. I’m barely able to keep up with all the different types of powers so I have no idea what able power is so forgive me. I Googled it and nothing pops up which really hurts the claim here.
The question of why do we need a before and an after is a pretty simple… We all want to be a better version of ourselves. Just because the person looks better doesn’t represent what the mural is actually about (Know art one time for me).
At the end of the day, it’s a mural about a fucking movie. There are better things to worry about.
