hogswart legacy made ( x 850 million in global sales ).
many on twitch were protesting how they weren’t gonna play.
i knew when xqc played it with no fucks to give,
that was pretty much over.
if anyone thought a boycott would stop the power that is harry potter…
I got a bridge to sell you in BK.
harry potter will always be a millennial/z favorite.
outside of social media,
many don’t know (or even care) about the controversy with jk rowling.
it goes to show there is a whole forest outside of twitter and its opinions.
jk rowling is on a podcast called “the witch trials of jk rowling“.
she has been speaking her personal truth about her infamy.
in the latest,
she said that 14-year-olds are too young for gender change…
JK Rowling says 14-years-old is too young for people to decide whether or not they are ready to change gender.
JK told ‘The Witch Trials of JK Rowling’ podcast: “As an adolescent… I questioned my sexuality, thinking, ‘Well, I can tell my friends are pretty. Does that mean I’m gay?’
“I grew up to be a straight woman, but I’ve never forgotten that feeling of anxiety around my body.
“I didn’t feel like I fitted in. Aged 11 or 12 I looked very androgynous with short hair and I was acutely anxious about my changing body and became aware it was attracting attention that I didn’t welcome, particularly from boys at school.”
“I don’t believe that even a 14-year-old can truly understand what the loss of their fertility is. At 14 I would have said that I didn’t want children but (motherhood) has been the most joyful, wonderful thing in my life.
“I couldn’t have comprehended that and would have had no idea about what I was giving up… there will be a minority of people for whom this will be solution.
“But in the numbers, particularly of young people that we are currently seeing coming forward, I find cause for doubt and concern.”
i was struggling with my sexuality but i was still a kid.
i think i was still collecting happy meal toys tbh.
all the boys in my classes were already up and fuckin’.
many were fuckin’ their girlfriends or older (or way over age) vixens.
i thought dicks were gross and wondered if being gay meant wearing drag.
all i saw as representations were stereotypes or villains who spread aids.
religion made me think i was gonna fly head-first into hell too.
So I fought that and did as the other straights were doing.
the legal age to drink is 21.
we can start working age is 16.
to have consensual sex is 18 (in most states).
we are way too young to know what we truly want yet.
we have an idea but still working out the kinks.
i think thats the age we start high school,
that can change as we get older and gain more experience.
she didn’t say anything wrong.
it’s pretty much common sense.
folks will find a problem with it tho.
i don’t think she cares.
lowkey: do ya’ll ask your straight friends with kids their thoughts on this stuff?
how they’ll handle their kids coming out/trans/pronouns?
i think it’s important for us in the community to ask these questions.
we might need to step in and protect their kids.
