Harry Potter -kirjailija J.K. Rowling on viime vuosina joutunut kuulemaan kunniansa lausuttuaan kantansa sukupuolten moninaisuudesta. Hänen mukaansa XX-kromosomilla olevat ovat naisia, ja transnaiset sitten vain teeskentelevät naisia olematta naisia kuitenkaan oikeasti. Hän on pitänyt kiinni kannoistaan kaikesta saamastaan palautteesta huolimatta.


Harry Potter -elokuvia tähdittäneet Daniel Radcliffe ja Emma Watson ovat olleet julkisesti eri mieltä Rowlingin kanssa. Nyt kirjailija on kommentoinut asiaa jälleen. Radcliffe ja Watson ovat hänen mukaansa väärässä.

"Over the last four years, Hilary Cass has conducted the most robust review of the medical evidence for transitioning children that's ever been conducted. Mere hours after it was released to the press and public, committed ideologues are doubling down. These are people who've deemed opponents 'far-right' for wanting to know there are proper checks and balances in place before autistic, gay and abused kids - groups that are all overrepresented at gender clinics - are left sterilised, inorgasmic, lifelong patients.

I understand that the review's conclusions will have come as a seismic shock to those who've hounded and demonised whistleblowers and smeared opponents as bigots and transphobes, but trying to discredit Hilary Cass's work isn't merely misguided. It's actively malign. Even if you don't feel ashamed of cheerleading for what now looks like severe medical malpractice, even if you don't want to accept that you might have been wrong, where's your sense of self-preservation? The bandwagon you hopped on so gladly is hurtling towards a cliff. And if I sound angry, it's because I'm bloody angry. I read Cass this morning and my anger's been mounting all day. Kids have been irreversibly harmed, and thousands are complicit, not just medics, but the celebrity mouthpieces, unquestioning media and cynical corporations.

The consequences of this scandal will play out for decades. You cheered it on. You did all you could to impede and misrepresent research. You tried to bully people out of their jobs for opposing you. Young people have been experimented on, left infertile and in pain."
