‘Harry Potter’ star Daniel Radcliffe turned on author J.K. Rowling, on whose books the ‘Harry Potter’ films are based, over her refusal to deny biological sex.
As Variety reports:
“Transgender women are women,” Radcliffe wrote in an essay posted to the website of the Trevor Project, a non-profit dedicated to crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBTQ people. “Any statement to the contrary erases the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice given by professional health care associations who have far more expertise on this subject matter than either Jo or I.”…
“If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth,” Rowling wrote. “The idea that women like me, who’ve been empathetic to trans people for decades, feeling kinship because they’re vulnerable in the same way as women — ie, to male violence — ‘hate’ trans people because they think sex is real and has lived consequences — is a nonsense.”
The author was immediately criticized by an array of people, including prominent queer activists and organizations, for denying the lived consequences of trans people’s experiences. Many “Harry Potter” fans also expressed anguish that Rowling had damaged, perhaps irreparably, their love for the seven books.
Woke stars like Radcliffe have apparently completely capitulated to the radical left, and are now spouting what appears to be complete nonsense in order to appear virtuous.
