Harry Potter and the Progressive Scolds

Shorter Dana Goldstein: Because J.K. Rowling, in the course of writing a fantasy saga that takes as a central theme the evils of racism, chauvinism and sexism, and the importance of treating all sentient creatures with respect, did not also suggest that heredity and family lineage are completely meaningless, that women and men are completely identical in every respect, and that there are no ingrained cultural differences between different intelligent species, such as humans and goblins, she is a Tool of the Patriarchy.
