I think the reason that she says all these things about Slytherin is to give the reader a general feel of what House he's coming from....I don't think all Slytherins are bad, it's just that the ones that're introduced in the book are...I think J.K is clever enough to avoid hypocrisy because assuming that all Slytherins are bad and being somewhat "prejudice" against them would only contradict the whole pureblood/ muggles...

I don't think all Slytherins are bad; in SS/PS, Ron said something like Slytherin House has more dark wizards than any other house in Hogwarts. I think that more people turn bad in Slytherin, but not all of them are bad. I have a feeling a Slytherin will be the hero of the day in the seventh book (ex: Draco, Snape, a new character, etc.)

i think its just like prejudice. just because its true that many slytherins are dark wizards, most people just think that about ALL slytherins. I mean they cant all be bad. After all, Harry was going to be one, and hes not a dark wizard obviously. I think the treated sort of like giants.

The simple answer to this is no. We are seeing the Slytherins though the Harry filter and he is baised towards them.

Cool

We're not all bad. Just because we are Slytherins, people get all steriotypical. Yeah, a few of us may be snobs, brats, fiends, and even evil, but th@ doesn't mean we all are. Jkr makes it seem all 'woe is to you' if you are a Slytherin, she even made it so Harry didn't want to be one. But realy, we're just a class up( so to speak). We have our pride, and we know who we are. If you read the sixth book, you would learn th@ Drei didn't want to kill Dumblydorf, but he had to, maybe our pride thing is enherited, like our wizarding blood. If you read the underlined things in the last sentince, it may explain why we are a bit snobbish. Even thou it may be black, we still have hearts.

but not all. Most people would say slytherins represent the bullies - but in real life the bully doesn't have to be like that - it could be anyone - slytherins are being contridicted - you can't judge someone for this reason - that would be shallow.

Of course all Slytherins are bad. Evil....backstabbing -pauses- oh wait i've been sorted into Slytherin. Well in that case no. Yeah okay so the most notorious wizards happen to be from Slytherin (Voldemort, The Malfoy's, The Goyle's, SNAPE) A few mess it up for er'one. Last I checked Gryffindors weren't all that saintly either I.E. Sirius and James. Slytherins for the most part just seem to follow the stereotype that was set since before they got to hogwarts.

At least, that's how it's percieved by Wizarding society. Guilt by association really stinks. And when people expect you to be bad without giving you the chance, that stinks even more.

Most seem to discover the bias against them is too powerful to fight off, so it seems. So they either yield to it ("Yes, I'm bad, very bad, everyone clear off!") or ignore it entirely and operate as if they don't care. It's very hard to shake a sterotype of any shape or form.

I think that it is a combination of two things. One, what everyone has mentioned, that it basically the way they've been brought up, a bit of their personality,ect. Second, I think since most of the Wizarding World expects Slytherins to be bad & rude and all, the Slytherins are also trying to live up to their reputation in a way. So, sonce people expect them to act one way, all bad,tough and uncaring, they're just living what people expect. Does that make any sense?

Slytherins are only a bit mean and jelaous of Gryfindors triumph. Gryfindor is always better in everything and Slytherins want to take pride in something too.
You mean Malfoy is jealous of Harry Potter If you remember, Slytherin had been winning the house cup for 4 years in a row or something like that before the first book year.

Quote:
No way. It is never said, anywhere in the books that they're all bad.
It's Hagrid.
"Better Hufflepuff than Slytherin," said Hagrid darkly. "There's not a single witch or wizard who went bad who wasn't in Slytherin."

He was the *coughdumbcough* childish character to bring up the biased pov that Slytherin = evil. Not only inaccurate, if we consider Wormtail and so many of others, but unfair and ridiculous. Hagrid is suppossed to be the "cute" character, but to me he is only ignorant. Ron also aided to this idea, but at least he -was- a child.

Quote:
And what about Horace Slughorn, he was a Slytherin.
And Phineas Nigellius too! He was headmaster and a Slytherin, no?

I don't think you inheritate pride Evils are made! You society made us what we are

I don't think all Slytherin's are bad. Slughorn really wasn't that bad, he wasn't perfect but he didn't seem to be any death eater. All houses have their flaws.

Hey, I'm a Slytherin and I'm one of the nicest people you can meet. Ok, well, in the book they are kinda nasty at times, but I feel if you give them a chance, they could be some of the truest friends to have.

Slytherin's aren't all bad... they just all hate Harry...

*blink*

But seriously, they didn't all hate Cedric when he was competing in the Triwizard Tournament, they were actually rooting for him (and Krum...). Plus, when you look at it, Slytherin's are a bit competitive, so obviously they'll hold harsh feelings for any house which beats them in the Qudditch Cup, not to mention the House Cup.
They're sneaky and crafty, and that breeds a bit of distrust, which does make having friends (who are not like you) a bit tougher because it's harder to understand them.

They're just a different breed or student basically, and they take a bit of pride in that I think.

Nope I don't believe that Slytherins are all bad. There are bad seeds in all walks of life and therefore all houses too. For example...Percy Weasley wasn't a slytherin but look how nasty he turned out to be.

Haha...Harry and Draco snowball fight isn't it cute?

Not all slytherins are bad!, but the good ones are minority, and its a bit difficult for them to stand out from the rest, they are in the same house at the end!!, and if the mean ones find out they won't leave the good ones by themselves they will be bullied, so instead being a single outcaster (which is difficult to rally by themselved) they become part of a group (overall direction of the group is mean/bad). Even though the good ones don't behave badly but they Keep Quite. Thats why i assume slytherins are close to each other.

No, not all Slytherins are bad. The reason why so many are bad is because a lot of them are self-serving and wouldn't die for goodness. The self-serving road often leads you to evil. But no, definitely not all Slytherins are bad.
