Ginny Weasley is a character in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, best known as Ron Weasley's younger sister and Harry Potter's canonical love interest.



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.[2] Others have called her a slut, and various other misogynist names, as Mrs. Bombastic cataloged to prove such character bashing is prevalent.[3]
