You know what I absolutely adored? Equal Rites. The book, the Discworld book where a girl discovers her magic is that of a wizard's, not a witch. But a female wizard is unheard of; female magic-users are all witches in Discworld.
I hate the constant, boring, useless gender binarism that is enforced by cis writers in their depictions of magic users. If there have to be witches, why can't they be the broomstick-flying, dusty black-hat type, and wizards are the mumbling arcane incantations in pristine robes type, regardless of gender? Why do all these stories assume binary genders or binary roles? Witchcraft is not about that, or at least, the real stuff isn't.
Why isn't there questioning of typical gender roles and identities in magical society? Why don't writers use this to explore something: traditional witch culture vs young person witch culture, transphobic witches vs trans witch culture, nb glamour witches competing with binary glamour witches' shops across the street, familiar discourse, "dear I think it would be safer to transition using hormones than using gramma's blood ritual".
Unique racial, or ethnic, or cultural magic, rather than doing the same old European cis wizard-witch thing we've heard a million times before. Urban public-school magic versus high-class private magic, like the short mockumentory about Vincent Clortho Public Wizard School!
I love the thing in Hustle Cat where everyone is a witch, regardless of gender. There's no "I'd rather be called a wizard" or "witches are for girls", everyone, male, female, nb, goes around calling themself a witch. There's different types of witches, of course, culturally, but there's no "black pointy hat, long nose" stereotype which is so obviously rooted in medieval antisemitism mentioned or granted any weight.
I'm nb. I'm a witch, a second-generation witch on my mother's side. Never really understood most of the herbs but I know a good amount of basic-to-middling spells. My fave one has to be a circle of fire.
