Sex reassigned comedian stood up for JK Rowling, accused of transphobia

CELEBRITY


The writer again angered the public with her statements.

Not so long ago, J.K. Rowling posted an article on her Twitter in which she did not like the expression “people who menstruate.” The star was hurt by the fact that this expression seriously offends all female representatives.

“I’m sure there is already a word for these people. Someone help me. Zhinshiny? Zhainschiny? Zhunsch? ” – wrote the author of “Harry Potter”, for which she was again accused of transphobia and racism.

Recently, a famous comedian who changed sex interceded for her. Eddie Izzard in an interview with the Daily Telegraph noted that he does not consider Rowling transphobic: “I do not think J.K. Rowling is transphobic. I think we need to look at what she wrote on her blog. “

The showman also added that he understands the writer very well, because she tries to support all women and does not at all think about offending the feelings of transgender people. “Women have gone through such a hell in their entire history. Trans people were also invisible, ”Izzard said.

Thus, the comedian stated that the author of the franchise about a young wizard is only trying to express his point of view, which is why she should not be accused of transphobia and racism.

Recall that this is not the first time that a wave of indignation has hit Rowling. So, for example, in December 2019, many were outraged by the fact that Joan supported a woman who was fired from her job because she said that a trans woman was not a woman.

At the same time, the celebrity explained her point of view: “I know many trans people and I love them, but blurring the concept of biological sex deprives many people of the opportunity to meaningfully discuss their lives. I am telling the truth, and not trying to offend someone, ”the writer said then.

She also added that she is even ready to defend the rights of transgender people if they are oppressed.
