Essay: In the Defense of Lily Evans

A friend of mine suggested that I link this here. I just wrote an essay of sorts called In the Defense of Lily Evans which is about the unfair treatment of Lily Evans in fandom as well as the staggering levels of misogyny and blatant disregard of canon which often leads to a ton of Lily bashing. Feel free to comment at the link :)

* Note to mods: The essay has been edited to take out the swearing, however I've left in the word "bitch" in two incidents due to the fact that misogyny IS one of the main topics of concern in this essay. Therefore the word is being used to show a point, not just to be vulgar. I hope that is an okay exception.
