A big problem in the Quidditch community is since it is not an official sport, like basketball, football, soccer, etc, there is nothing stopping people from doing things like using the n-word, making creepy tumblrs/competitions like Butts & Brooms and making rape jokes. There is no higher committee to enforce laws that I am sure other sports have and there is no leverage to use against people to keep them from playing. The worst that could happen is they’re not allowed to play Quidditch anymore and I don’t even know if the IQA can enforce a rule like that. They won’t lose scholarships/esteem like they would if they played an official sport. I also question how much power officers hold in school clubs and if they’d really take actions against players who do things off the field, off season like these players have been doing lately.
I’ve been very disappointed with the Quidditch community lately and I think I’m finally done. I didn’t join this sport for the ignorant high school football playing jock mentality that has come about and I don’t see a real end to it in the near future.
So many uncomfortable feels about whats going on on the All the Regions IQA page right now. But… I don’t have time to get into an argument. *sigh*
did i tell you guys that me and a friend from our super cool science school is trying to start the first sport we have in our first year of being a school: A Muggle Quidditch Team. Im head of Gryffindor, he’s head of Ravenclaw, and we have a hand full of other people to do this.
Its gonna be so fucking cool
