British author J.K. Rowling is the brains behind the Harry Potter book series and even worked closely with the producers for the movies based on the books.
But she was nowhere to be found for when the movie’s stars reunited for a “magical” Harry Potter 20th anniversary special.
Rowling’s representatives nor Warner Bros. would comment on why the very creator of the Wizarding World was absent, but we all know the reason. It’s because Rowling dared to say that men and women are different, deeply offending those who are trying to make the claim that they aren’t.
“People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?” Rowling tweeted back in June in response to a headline of an article that was actually about women.
Needless to say, the backlash from transgender groups and the far-left media that takes offense to use of the word “women” was swift and severe.
Per The Washington Post:
“GLAAD, a non-profit dedicated to LGBTQ issues, denounced Rowling’s tweets on their own Twitter account.
‘JK Rowling continues to align herself with an ideology which willfully distorts facts about gender identity and people who are trans,’ the organization wrote. ‘In 2020, there is no excuse for targeting trans people.'”
So clearly, those who run Harry Potter are buckling to that loud crowd, for fear of having to defend themselves for believing that the word “women” is still OK when referring to a crowd of females.
But the truth is, Harry Potter celebrations without J.K. Rowling are no more complete than Harry Potter celebrations without Harry Potter. Nothing at all magical about that.
