Gotta confess, I didn’t know Quidditch was an actual sport, I thought it was fictional all along
Why are so many people too lazy to do a basic search before reposting shit?
Somebody still cares ?
The posers can’t even fly.
I guess “Running Around with Sticks Between Your Legs” doesn’t fit too well on a jersey.
I don’t think people who play quidditch are transphobic because the woman who wrote books they grew up with came out as phobic years after the culture became established, but whatever…if it makes them feel better?
>She has continued to speak out. Last week, Rowling shared a news article about an MP who had branded as “absurdity” the idea of police saying they will record rapes by offenders with male genitalia as being committed by a woman if the attacker “identifies as a female”.
>Matt Bateman, president of QuidditchUK, told The Times: “We cannot continue to call ourselves Quidditch and be associated with JK Rowling while she continues to make damaging and hateful comments against the many transgender athletes, staff and volunteers who call this sporting community home.”
i don’t know that we need to be inclusive with *rapists*. maybe that’s just me. 🤷♂️
The Venn Diagram for the people that eat, sleep and breathe Trans Rights and those that play Quidditch is a perfect circle.
Wait, correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t there some controversy some time ago about her being anti-trans or something?
If people are TRULY upset about her then don’t play the damn game that she created. Otherwise, grow up and realize that people multi-faceted, have unique perspectives, and aren’t monsters because they express their opinions on the issue of trans people. From my read of the article sh seemed to be pushing back against the suggestion that there is no such thing as sex differences. He’s what she said:
> The author was also criticised by some for disputing the idea that male and female sexes do not exist.
“If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives,” she tweeted.
I’m sorry, but the male sex and the female sex exist. The fact that there are outliers who do not fit into these categories doesn’t negate those categories; it merely shows that those main categories don’t include every human on the planet. But it includes the vast vast majority of them.
Couple things here; quidditch actually being a thing is silly to begin with but changing the name is even dumber no matter how crappy her views are on some stuff.
There’s literally no point to quidditch if it’s not attached to Harry Potter…it was created so people could role play as part of that universe
I vote for Grugby.
what a strange hill for jk rowling to die on.
