Re-examination of W.O.M.B.A.T. question
The page currently says that, of the options presented on the W.O.M.B.A.T. question regarding him, the Squib riot stuff probably happened during his reign. However, given the new information from Pottermore, isn't the Wizengamot members walking out more likely? I would think that the first Muggle-born Minister would be more likely to cause that then the first female one would. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 23:00, July 10, 2012 (UTC)
- I wouldn't think so. Leach's major upheaval in office was a "shady plot" (widely believed to have been orchestrated by Abraxas Malfoy), and the Squib Rights marches were, as we know, interrupted as a group of extremist Pure-bloods broke out in riot while it were taking place. All seems to fit, I think. -- 14:22, July 11, 2012 (UTC)
- Personally I agree with 1337star. A "shady plot" and something as loud as a riot don't seem to hang well together. I mean, are riots even planned? Additionally, prejudice against Muggleborns and the like seems to run a lot deeper than prejudice against women; in fact, you had prominent female figures in history as far back as the tenth century - Rowena Ravenclaw and Helga Hufflepuff, who are acknowledged as two of the greatest magical figures at the time. I could easily see the riot happening either before or after Nobby's term in office. Maybe after, somewhere between quietly getting rid of a Muggleborn Minister and the full-on war between those in favor of a more accepting society and those against in the seventies. But obviously this is not the only interpretation, and yours is possible as well; however, I don't see why there has to be one answer on the wiki when there are at least two possible ones, each equally valid. There are no certainties, so why does the article have to act like there are? Minnabird (talk) 17:41, July 29, 2012 (UTC)Minnabird
- Personally, I don't think EITHER should be mentioned in this article. Although I'm more inclined to believe that members of the wizengamout left (due to him being muggle born), the fact that it isn't certain should mean that neither should be mentioned rather than 'it's likely that-'.
