J.K. Rowling created a social justice warrior before that was even a thing. And like many social justice warriors today, sometimes her ideals get in the way of understanding the situation.


This has been one of my favourite blog posts of yours for a while Shannii! When I was reading the book I had pretty similar thoughts but I didn’t apply them to real life the same way you did! It really is true that Hermione (while meaning well) didn’t approach S.P.E.W very well.
