Harry Potter fan sites distance themselves from JK Rowling over transgender rights

Jul 03 2020

Two of the biggest Harry Potter fan sites have distanced themselves from author JK Rowling because of her beliefs on transgender rights, calling them at odds with the message of empowerment in her best-selling books.

Websites the Leaky Cauldron and Mugglenet said on Thursday they would no longer provide links to the British author’s personal website, use photos of her, or write about achievements that do not relate to the world she created…

… It follows a lengthy personal essay by Rowling last month in which she detailed her beliefs on transgender rights, including examples of where she thought demands by transgender activists were dangerous to women.
