Daniel proceeded by citing a Trevor Project fact, that 78 percent of transgender and nonbinary youth reported discrimination because of their gender identity.
“It’s clear that we need to do even more to sustain transgender and also nonbinary individuals, not revoke their identifications, as well as not cause additional injury,” he described.
He made sure to talk straight to fans of J.K. Rowling’s collection that could feel specifically targeted by her tweets. “To all individuals that currently feel that their experience of the books has actually been stained or diminished, I am deeply sorry for the pain these remarks have created you.
As the world battles a pandemic and also fights for racial equal rights, J.K. Rowling published a collection of transphobic tweets on Saturday. 2 days later on, Harry Potter celebrity Daniel Radcliffe reacted to her remarks via The Trevor Project’s site and also sent a clear message: “Transgender ladies are ladies.”
Daniel recognizes that J.K. Rowling is “undoubtedly responsible” for the course his life has taken, yet as a contributor to The Trevor Project and also “as a human,” he felt a seriousness to speak up. “Transgender women are women,” he wrote.
“Any statement on the contrary gets rid of the identification and self-respect of transgender people and also breaks all guidance provided by specialist health care associations that have even more knowledge on this subject issue than either Jo or I.”
“I am deeply sorry for the discomfort these remarks have actually triggered you.”
I truly hope that you don’t entirely shed what was important in these stories to you.”
“If these publications educated you that love is the strongest force in the universe, with the ability of overcoming anything; if they taught you that toughness is found in diversity, and that dogmatic concepts of purity lead to the fascism of prone teams; if you think that a specific character is trans, nonbinary, or sex fluid, or that they are bisexual or gay; if you found anything in these tales that resonated with you and aided you at any moment in your life– then that is in between you and also the book that you review, and it is sacred. And also in my viewpoint nobody can touch that,” he said. “It means to you what it means to you and also I hope that these comments will certainly not taint that too much.”
