Incidentally, there is a fascinating book about the back-and-forth relationship between French and English, called Hon n i soit qui mal y pense , by Henriette Walter.
It is translated as "May he be shamed who thinks badly of it"  or "Shame be to him who thinks evil of it"  or "Evil or shame be to him that evil thinks"  —although the French phrase is not gendered.
