13 Times J.K. Rowling Schooled Her Twitter Followers on Language, Grammar, & Everything Else



Repeat after me: THERE IS NO MISOGYNY ALLOWED IN HOGWARTS. Any Harry Potter devotee knows that the line between good and evil can be blurry. Simply claiming to be on the morally upright side doesn't mean anything if you don't follow up with action. I.e., calling yourself a Gryffindor doesn't always get you into Gryffindor. And calling a female politician-- even one whose actions you find reprehensible-- by one of the lowest, most violent epithets you can call a woman, will only reveal your true disposition. Words matter.
