And, honestly, I don’t think she cares.
I swear, every time she tweets something, a little more the Harry Potter world dies.
This time she threatened to sue someone because they made fun of a direct quote that she said herself. The quote “I ignored porn directed at children”.
What #JKRowlingignores :
Her #FantasticsBeasts Director being charged with sexual assault.
Every single trans person’s and pro-trans voice.
#MoaningMyrtle just hanging out in the boys bathroom.
When the people she follows threatens women and the females in their families with rape, and threaten to beat up trans youth…Like me.
What #JKRowling doesn’t ignore:
Being directly quoted.
I’ve never been a huge Harry Potter fan, didn’t mind it, but this lady is a massive LotR fan. For years now though, people who like HP, readers I admire and respect. Have been talking about Rowling problematic issues, from who the Goblins in the bank are meant to be, to Cho Chang -.- , to did she steal HP from another story.
Read the Worst Witch series and then Groosham Grange. A little funny story about this too. I was looking for the book it was copied from. A woman said “Well Rowling couldn’t have read it, because her child was in a stroller at the time she was writing HP, and so she wouldn’t have have read her a book that was for 8-10 years old. I happily pointed out her that “The Worst Witch” was first published out in 1975, Rowling was born in 1964. Rowling would have been 9 when this award winning book came out. Also, I am pretty sure that you don’t have to be a child to read a childs book.
There’s always a “coincidence” or a justification why.
Let alone, the amount of times she had back tracked and rewriting the Harry Potter to suit what’s popular at the time. Which, she can totally do that, that’s her right. But she does this thing a LOT. Like, the whole Dumbledore is gay thing. It’s not actually mentioned in any of the Harry Potter books.
We really need to start paying attention to these “coincidences” more, and I apoligise to the trans community for not really paying attention to them more.
