It`s funny b`cause it`s racist!
No, really, change “badger” for “black”
Then they’d be Sirius’ relatives…
No, you don’t pay attention, badger is not their FAMILY name. Black is Sirius’s family name, meanwhile, starting with Phineas Nigellus Black.
It’s a combined thing. “You and your wife both look black! It should totally be your family name!” – THEN they’d be Sirius’ relatives.
Ugh. Actually typing that modified phrase made me feel gross =/
Ooooooor, Marah is going off of an old trope that’s existed in media since the 1920s (if not earlier) where an animal person’s surname is the type of animal they are…
Mickey MOUSE, Bugs BUNNY, Daffy DUCK, Porky PIG…
That was what I was going for. But I can see what Darius is saying.
This is the correct answer.
Marah Human is her name over there, eh?
His name could be Buttons Badger just as easily, but Jake made a funny joke out of it so it’s all good :>
She is also a child in a world she doesn’t know, and even in our world people get confused with what name to call a person or what order the names were. Logan Terry, Parker Morgan, Peters Terrace. All of those could go either way and we KNOW them. At Marah’s age here it would be totally normal for someone to introduce themselves with a given name and as a child she still uses Mr and then mis-files the name as a surname.
Okay now that’s definitely racist, it looks like she’s let her worldview be determined by what she sees in fictional media, I love your unique lampshade hanging on an old traditional trope though.
