Hi Hi Y’all!
It’s been awhile. My bad. Been having to deal with a lot of things due to Corona and the world at the moment. Wasn’t ignoring you. I am sad though that my first non fan fiction post in awhile is about this topic: JK Rowling’s stance on the trans community.
Many of you know I am a pretty big fan of the Harry Potter universe and consider myself a proud Slytherin. On my site there are a range of Harry Potter related fan fictions. However, there is no way I cannot face what has been said.
So far, my thoughts on this matter can be broken down into three main arguments:
(1) The importance of Freedom of Speech and Expression.
(2) The separation of Creation from Creator.
(3) The need for Opposing Thought for Free Discourse.
However, even separate from the arguments on these, there is the need to decide if my own values and beliefs will be compromised by this stance.
What I have decided is this:
On my Harry Potter Fan Fiction page I will continue my story. I think it is extremely important for me to finish what I started. There is this wonderful story that is waiting to be told and I am adamant about telling it. However, I will continue the inclusion of LGBTQ characters planned within it despite the initial creators opinions. I believe this is important to show that a magical universe that is built on discovery and wonder is by definition inclusive of our LGBTQ community.
Secondly, I will decide with my co-author whether or not we shall separate our story from the Harry Potter Universe or not.
Lastly, I will continue to show free emotional support towards the Harry Potter universe for those involved in it and its positivism. However, I shall no longer contribute in any economic support to it. Basically, I am saying I will share memes and comment on people who have received love from it but will not buy or advertise for any merchandise or Harry Potter goods anymore.
I hope y’all can respect my decision with this matter. Please, treat those who are working with me on this with respect and care because I will not tolerate any harassment to those individuals.
As always, I appreciate you all.
