JK Rowling Claims Harry Potter Fans Appreciate Her Controversial Stance on Transgender Issues.

JK Rowling has said that many Harry Potter fans were grateful for her stance that women should not be ousted from their jobs for believing biological sex is real. Rowling also discussed how she knew that a comment she made about transgender women three years ago would provoke backlash. Transgender rights activists criticised Rowling’s support of tax expert Maya Forstater who was fired from a think tank in 2019 after claiming that people cannot change their biological sex. Rowling defended her position stating that the activist movement in its current form is mirroring that which she had warned against in Harry Potter. Harry Potter movie actors including Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson have criticised Rowling’s comments.
