[…] These days, however, several years after the books have come out, you still can’t mention being in Hufflepuff without expecting some kind of pitying laugh from your friends. In fact in many ways the prejudice has gotten even worse.
The viral phenomenon of Starkid and “A Very Potter Musical” years ago certainly didn’t help the house’s rep - quotes from parodied Cedric, “Hufflepuffs are exceptionally great finders!” and parodied Dumbledore’s, “What the HELL is a Hufflepuff?” associate the house with a dull, stupid - overall negative connotation and have become ubiquitous with any mention of the house online.
Further, we all remember when Pottermore was finally realized and Harry Potter fans got to be Sorted “for real.” There were outcries from kids and adults all over the globe lamenting their placement in the believed weakest of all Houses and talk about making multiple Pottermore accounts because the Sorting Hat just couldn’t have been more wrong that first time. Because come on, how can choosing between Moon or Stars/ Heads or Tails really tell you what house you’re supposed to be in anyway, right?
One fact that many Potter fans forget about it that JK Rowling herself has said that Hufflepuff is her favorite House! […]
While Gryffindors by nature stayed during the battle to fight off pure evil, they did do because it was just the brave thing to do, while Hufflepuff House stayed to fight because it was their duty. Even if you could argue some or most of these Hufflepuff students were scared - or even that they were unskilled on the battlefield - that’s more reason to celebrate that house and its loyalty, because those students fought truly knowing (and feeling) the coming danger. […]
Maybe I’m coming off as a little too harsh here, but as someone who has been an active part of this fandom for many years, I’m ashamed that we fans have not collectively risen above this particular divide. I mean, if we can all take the cue from Draco and Snape and agree that Slytherin’s aren’t all bad, why can’t we lighten up a little on the Hufflepuffs?

Other Houses: Gryffindor | Hufflepuff | Ravenclaw | Slytherin

I think it's worth noting that despite the pottermore sorting, or any other sorting quizzes, that people do grow and change and what house may have "fit" more as a child may be different than when they are an adult. I always identified very strongly as a Ravenclaw since I was 15? and always was sorted a Ravenclaw, sometimes Gryff. I'm 25 now and the consensus is very much Hufflepuff, with some Ravenclaw. (I'm very into hybrid sorting because I don't think 1 house always fits perfectly)

Oh, that’s a nice point! We as human beings are always changing who we are and how we perceive the world. When we were eleven we were surely very different from what we are now (I know I was, thanks god because I was a bit stupid then). As we change and learn new things, some times traces of our personalities that may not be so strong before (or even nonexistence) surface. Someone who used to be kind can suffer and turn out to be a bit selfish. Or the inverse, someone who used to be selfish grow up to be someone kind. It’s very subjective and, once again, unlike the Sorting Hat that could see inside your head and understand and study all your potential, the test on Pottermore just knows what it asks to you, so yeah it can place you in a House and then after some years (or even months or days) place you somewhere else because you’ve changed (or simply answered the questions more honestly this time). So yes, good point deary, very good point, I’m glad you brought this up.

Fall fashion (and a ballgown cause I fucking love ballgowns) for the 4 houses (with movie and book colorway for Ravenclaw yer welcome). Also played around a little bit more in the second look with styles that aren’t usually associated with that house haha.

I think it’s stupid when people believe that benevolence is a trait of Hufflepuffs. Last time I talked to the Sorting Hat, the Hufflepuff traits are: justice, loyalty, patience, honesty, and hardworking. I have all of these traits; I am a Hufflepuff. Benevolence is a stereotype. Not all of us have the dying urge to be nice to everyone.
