J.K. Rowling, the author of Harry Potter faced consequences for her views on trans community. Rowling has been indulging in many controversies because of her insignificant views on trans gender like the medications and gender-altering surgeries for youth . Even her last books have collected disapproval. Her ‘Troubled Blood’ book somehow again targeted the trans community as she suggested in her writing that trans women are cold-bloodedly performing a gender identity that does not truly belong to them. It quickly faced criticism for allegedly leaning into portrayals of trans people as villains. Over past few years, the author not only has been getting threats but there were hashtags going on saying #RIPJKRowling.
The most popular work of Rowling, “Harry Potter” was exhibited in a Museum in Seattle and there were no artefacts or mark of her. Rowling has been erased from US Museum of Pop Culture over her transphobic views. The manager of museum exhibition, “Chris Morre” who is indeed a transgender stated that Rowling holds super hateful and divisive opinions on trans community. He wrote a blog entitled “She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named,” criticizing her transphobic views by continuing the blog, “There’s a certain cold, heartless, joy-sucking entity in the world of Harry Potter and, this time, it is not actually a Dementor.” “We would love to go with the internet’s theory that these books were actually written without an author, but this certain person is a bit too vocal with her super hateful and divisive views to be ignored.”
The museum’s “Fantasy: Worlds of Myth and Magic” exhibition will include all sorts of Harry Potter paraphernalia and souvenirs but any sign of the author or her name will be scrubbed from the museum.
