Assuming you have read (or at least seen the movie) Order of the Phoenix then you are familiar with Umbridge. So what makes Stephen King proclaim her so villainous (and what makes her possibly the most hated HP character)?
Well let’s look at her character in detail, this post, sums it up nicely she is lawful evil.  She is the kind of evil we see in the world, . She is a bully someone who uses her position to do horrible things.  She is someone who sees what she is doing (no matter horrible )as the right thing.  She views herself as a loyal ministry employee stamping out corruption in society.
Chaotic evil like Voldemort or Bellatrix Lestrange are rare, but individuals who abuse our trust and bully others are something we see every day.  That is what makes Umbridge such a horrifying villain, she is not abstract evil, she is very re.al and likely reminds of someone we have met (just far more heinous).
So this is all about writing your charaters so whtat does our picture of lawful evil have to do wit that? Think about your villains (even your plain old antagonists) are they purely evil villains are theiry more like Umbridge? What motivates them, why do they do what they do? Looke at Umbridge’s motivations and what made her got sch extreme lengths.  Can your villain be put in a similar situation? Would they go to such lengths?

Fox News Hosts Defend Catcalling
I’m not sure if everyone in the Fox segment even understands what catcalls are, because if a guy catcalls you, they usually don’t say, “You look nice today.” Basically, we have one woman who is so used to it she doesn’t care anymore, one who hated it when she was younger but now misses it because she has low self esteem and probably a good deal of internalized misogyny, one who thinks we should just “let men be men” and that street harassment is usually someone saying “you look nice today,” one who is doesn’t like it (who talks the least, seems to realize it’s usually very degrading, but doesn’t mind whistling), and one man whose form of catcalling is a slow clap if he thinks you look nice, though he seemed to at least understand that he wasn’t sure what is offensive to some people and not to others. Having forced myself to sit through the whole thing, I can say it was a parade of stupidity, misogyny, ignorance, and “boys will be boys” attitudes.
Guys, remember, “Let men be men” really means “Men are stupid horndogs who can’t control themselves and can’t learn any better.”

When Playboy puts out a better guide on how to navigate street harassment than Fox News and The New York Post, you know there is something very wrong going on.
Bravo, Playboy. You have put forth a perfect chart that is accurate, informative, and well-designed. I commend you and writer/designer Shea Strauss for teaching your, mostly male, readers human decency. Four for you, Playboy. You go, Playboy.
