Anonymous asked : "NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH." Sexist language, or did Bellatrix deserve the moniker?

oh, DUDE, I have pondered this question 8th grade. I am not positive on either of those choices. On the one hand, what an amazing depiction of a woman-identified person who manages to be an excellent depiction of partner parenting and a defender of her children’s (and their friends!) well-being, too. On the other, JK ROWLING, WHY COULDN’T YOU USE ANOTHER WORD? Instead of being able to nod along with it, I just kept thinking, “and this is that weird territory that happens when a word is simultaneously being reclaimed as positive and being wielded as derogatory.” 

tl;dr— It’s definitely sexist language when used in this way, Bellatrix, for all her murder-y ways, could have been summarily dismissed in a gender-neutral manner, and JK Rowling, while going for the shock effect, definitely derailed more than one reader’s thought process with that sentence.
