Portrayal in Fandom
Ginny has often, in some circles (such as Harry/Hermione or Harry/Draco shipper circles), been a victim of character bashing. This is presumably a result of backlash towards the Harry/Ginny canonical ship, which seemed to threaten the existence of those other ships. Some have claimed she is a Mary Sue (guilty of being too perfect), while others have argued against that judgement. Others have called her a slut, and various other misogynist names, as Mrs. Bombastic cataloged to prove such character bashing is prevalent.
