Russian Harry Potter Fandom is Awesome!

So  blades_of_grass  linked to this amazing Table of Contents, posted here, and authored by (c) sadcrixivanfrau_derrida_palka. This is meant to be a ToC for ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FEMINISM ACCORDING TO HARRY POTTER. Of course, as it’s third wave, there are quite a few intersectional articles. What I want to know is why is this not real!
