The Harry Potter books DID deal with racism, did you not even read them?????? The whole Muggles vs. pure-bloods thing was an analogy to racism. You need to remove that reason and add that JK Rowling is a huge transphobe. I suggested to add that to her pointer a year ago, but it wasn't added.

There is literally no evidence of a man dressing up as a woman to kill people, this is spreading hate against transgender people. It's hypocritical of her to be a transphobe when the Harry Potter books were about acceptance and tolerance. She also goes by a male pen name, Robert Galbraith, to sell more books, so she can't slam trans people for wanting to change their name when she does it herself.

I've made the changes to her example. There's no need for that tone at the beginning though, mistakes happen.

Indeed, I agree with you DeciduousWater. Also yeah, I didn't read them. I bought the first four books when they were published but never really read them as I stopped after a few pages of the first book, for some reason I now can't remember. But I didn't write that entry either.

The user who wrote that part must not have tought the books dealt with racism. If Rowling didn't expand the topic further than how it was depicted in those few pages I read, than it was pretty subtle anyway, without her books proposing a true allegory of real world racism.

Excuse me, did Rowling exactly presented her serial killer as transgender or did he just wrote that he dresses up as a woman? Because they aren't exactly the same thing and we now know that internet people are quick to judge and condemn.

DeciduousWater534 (talkcontribs)

Based on the article, the killer dresses as a woman, but is not trans. It seems like the people criticizing her are getting the two mixed up.

Which isn't really a surprise. Criticizing stuff without knowing the whole picture or even the whole world and the people is perhaps the only thing militant internet groups of any kind have in common.

Of course I am not talking about you Neptune, you probably just heard this from someone who looked reliable but know that very few sources can be considered trustworthy nowadays and it is very useful to keep a skeptic mind.

This is shocking since J.K. Rowling is a master at making really good stories that won't draw outrage.

Xian Pu (talkcontribs)

Would she have gotten away with THAT revelation about Dumbledore nowadays, though? I don't think she would.

Masson Thief (talkcontribs)

Why not?

And to think, J.K. Rowling is a good author, but man, her hatred towards transgender people is an unforgivable transgression.

I remember who is Poison (a Street Fighter character).
