Kids Who Read Harry Potter Are More Likely To Be Accepting Of Homosexuality And Immigrants!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayHarry PotterBookzAmazing

Harry Potter is fighting bigotry, one reader at a time!

We always knew there was a reason we loved Harry Potter so much, and that's not just the butter beer talking!!

New studies have found that youngsters who read the popular books and indentify with the boy who lived are MUCH more likely to have positive attitudes towards LGBT people and immigrants!

If this all sounds like a bunch of nonsense to you, it's not as crazy as you might think!

Ever heard of Quidditch??

Of course you have! If you know anything about Harry Potter, you should know his favorite sport!

Well it seems like the nation's youth have taken the idea and run wild, leading to an actual Quidditch sport real people can play!

george rr martin writes back to young fan about wolves

If a fan writes to you asking to be killed and you're anyone BUT George R.R. Martin, you'd probably call the police.

However, we're pretty sure the author behind Game of Thrones is no stranger to this request.

Especially when one of the prizes for his fundraiser was to be killed off in his next book, but only if you donated $20,000 to the cause!

Well, a 13-year-old from the UK named Jack wanted to be killed off in the book, but didn't have that kind of money, so he decided to write GRRM about it!
