One wonders what critics of Rowling’s stance on trans issues will make of a book whose moral seems to be: never trust a man in a dress,” reviewer Jake Kerridge wrote.
    Mermaids, a UK-based charity which supports transgender children and their families, 그것은 말했다”concernedby reports that the book features a character presenting as another gender in order to carry out attacks.
    This is a long-standing and somewhat tired trope, responsible for the demonization of a small group of people, simply hoping to live their lives with dignity,” a spokesperson said in a statement to CNN.
    The spokesperson cited an example from Rowling’s second book in theStrikeseries from 2014 — “The Silkworm,” which featured a transgender character as a suspect.
    We are disappointed to hear that the author might be propagating the same, long-standing and hurtful presentation of trans women as a threat.
    "해리 포터&인용t; actors have been among those to criticize Rowling.

    As a children’s charity, we are bearing witness to the very real hurt felt by young people who once saw Ms. Rowling’s fiction as a place of comfort, friendship and escape. The author recently expressed support for trans people’s right to live free from persecution. Her latest book might cause those still enjoying her books to question that sentiment,” the Mermaids statement added.
    Rowling’s management told CNN that it would not be commenting on the latest controversy.

    Likening Rowling to her own creation of the much-disliked “해리 포터” character Dolores Umbridge, trans actress and writer Jen Richards said on 트위터 that the author has become soobsessed with her deeply prejudiced perspective that she’ll go to any length to remain convinced of her own righteousness, no matter what harm it causes.
    Rowling’s comments and views on gender have made headlines several times this year.

    ‘People who menstruate.I’m sure there used to be a word for those people,” 여자 트윗. “Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?”
    Her comments led actors who starred in film adaptations of her books to disagree with her. Among them were Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Eddie Redmayne of the “해리 포터” movie series.
    Trans people are who they say they are and deserve to live their lives without being constantly questioned or told that they aren’t who they say they are,” Watson 썼다.
    Following the reaction, Rowling published an essay about gender identity on her website and explained why she chose to share her views.
      All I’m askingall I wantis for similar empathy, similar understanding, to be extended to the many millions of women whose sole crime is wanting their concerns to be heard without receiving threats and abuse,” Rowling said.
