Have some more stones to throw at the witch

Another treacherous ungrateful shit joins the pack.

Rupert Grint has become the latest Harry Potter cast member to speak out in response to author JK Rowling’s recent comments on transgender issues.

In a statement, the actor – Ron Weasley in the Potter films – said “I firmly stand with the trans community”.

What a treacherous self-serving shit. By saying that he implies that Rowling stands against “the trans community.” By saying it he implies that she’s malevolent and harmful and bad, and needs to be ostracized and monstered by shits like him and Radcliffe and Watson.

“Trans women are women. Trans men are men. We should all be entitled to live with love and without judgment.”

But they’re not. Trans women are not women; that’s what “trans” means. Trans men are not men; that’s what “trans” means. It’s a lying bullying slogan worthy of 1984 and people should stop robotically repeating it on command.

As for being entitled to live with love and without judgement – that’s bullshit too. No we should not all be entitled to that. Love is relational, and it’s not subject to command or coercion. Judgement is inevitable in life, and nobody is entitled to say “Judge all those other types of people but not my type – I get to be immune from judgement.”

Grint, now 31, told The Times: “I firmly stand with the trans community and echo the sentiments expressed by many of my peers.”

Yeah exactly – it’s a creed, and you recite it obediently just like your peers. High five.

The BBC ends the article with

A school in West Sussex has dropped plans to name a house after Rowling, saying it did “not wish to be associated” with her views.

Her views that women are women and men are not women.
