For the record, I love JK Rowling.


I found her books unreadable, and Potter
movies ridiculous. Way too much CGI
and poor acting. That's what happens
when you're talking to a green screen
half the time.

The alphabet people are at it again.

'Harry Potter' author J.K. Rowling roasted for supporting researcher who defended biological sex recognition

They're all pissed because JK Rowling supported a woman who said that "people cannot change their biological sex". I swear, this stuff is crazier than fiction man. It's pure insanity.

These libbies and alphabet people clearly didn't take biology in high school. Remember this the next time a libbie claims that they believe in science. 🙄


People of course can't change their biological sex, but they can use hormones/surgery to mimic the opposite sex. And thus making it easier for them to feel comfortable in their own bodies. As a conservative, I assume you support individuals making decisions about their own bodies without the government interfering?

I am against transgender women competing in sports (college/professional) against biological women. Unless a biological male would be allowed to compete as well.

I may not be as old as EB, but I sure don't understand any attraction to the little I know about the Harry Potter series. Never read them or saw them but have absolutely no interest. I can't judge whether it is good or not, but I abhore almost all fiction and I think the HP series is fiction.

I read the 1st book after some churches came out against the book. I enjoyed it. Fun fiction.
