Much to the excitement of obsessed Harry Potter fans across the globe, J.K. Rowling has been consistently sharing new and illuminating information about the wizarding world on the site Pottermore.
Her most recently divulged tidbit about the series has completely turned our perception of Hogwarts on its head and you may just need a moment to digest it.
J. K. Rowling shared the following entry about the Chamber of Secrets revealing some shocking info about wizard plumbing.

There are so many questions now. Did children learn these spells? They seem pretty advanced, especially if they aren’t supposed to be using magic outside of school.

We’re just supposed to accept the fact that wizards casually pooped their pants for centuries!?
I don’t know how I feel about this. Did it just happen all the time?
