"Parental Abandonment: He [Tom Riddle, Sr.] knowingly abandons his wife along with their unborn child. Granted, he was effectivly raped, but even so..."

Wow. We're supposed to think he did a bad thing by walking out on his rapist? Double Standard much?

Yeah. I would support removing or rewording that.

To be honest, most of his section is problematic. Karmic Death and Asshole Victim are both there, when the worst thing we know he was...be rude to the Gaunts. Him abandoning his child is mentioned three or four times.

He was RAPED, for fuck's sake!

"Yes, he was drugged and coerced into marrying Merope and conceiving a child with her, but then again, he did knowingly abandon her and his own child."

It's shit like that that really bothers me. No one would question a woman doing the same thing. It's all gone.

"You didn't just lose a mother in Godric's Hollow. I lost a sister."

Where was this said?
