Since we're already on the subject of poop, it's time to talk about that wizard plumbing thing.

Backstory: I don't know if this is the consequence of a lifetime of agronomy + food safety = my entire professional life is poop, or what
But any time I'm getting a lot of pushback/gaslighting for stuff that I damn well have receipts for, the stress shows up as recurring dreams about a world w no chairs.

Just toilets.

People are dropping deuces at their desk, in waiting rooms, on the bus

So the whole dream is either looking for a normal place to sit that's not a can, or trying to find a bathroom with a door & failing miserably

while a growing crowd follows you around yelling about how wanting privacy when you go to the bathroom is socially deviant & bad.
One the one hand in the dream I'm like "I get that bc we shouldn't be embarrassed about our bodies" or w/e

but at the same time, it's objectively bad hygiene to roll through life w your ass out at all times, and NOBODY CARES
The most important part of the dream is how ANGRY everybody gets that someone does not share their enthusiasm for pooping in public. They're threatened, irate, and absolutely must* change your mind.
So anyway, this Pottermore thing about how before the 1800s wizards didn't have bathrooms and used to just let 'er rip in situ at all times, in public or private, & Used Magic to make the pee & poops disappear

I feel…seen? and/or personally attacked
it's just not every day that your Dadaist shame nightmare becomes canon
The good news is by now whenever this dream shows up, I just go "ah! X is happening & it's really bothering me" & it ends. It's like the brain just really needs to let me know gaslighting is happening & I should blow it off. Thnx brain, you're a freak but you're supportive.
