Emma tweets after JK Rowling’s controversial remarks &
Emma Watson, ‘Harry Potter’ franchise actor on Thursday put ahead her views on transgender folks and their rights. She mentioned that transgender folks should dwell with out always being questioned about their identification.
“Trans people are who they say they are and deserve to live their lives without being constantly questioned or told they aren’t who they say they are,” the ‘Little Women’ actor wrote on Twitter.
The 30-year-old star’s tweet follows the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise creator JK Rowling’s controversial tweets earlier, whereby she had shared her ideas about gender identification.
The creator is going through criticism for a tweet whereby she shared an article titled: “Opinion: Creating a more equal post-COVID-19- world for people who menstruate.”
Rowling mocked the usage of the phrase ‘individuals who menstruate’ saying: “‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?”
The creator confronted backlash for her feedback after which she, subsequently, in a sequence of tweets, defended her feedback.
“If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth,” she mentioned.
“The idea that women like me, who’ve been empathetic to trans people for decades, feeling kinship because they’re vulnerable in the same way as women – ie, to male violence – ‘hate’ trans people because they think sex is real and has lived consequences – is a nonsense.”
Rowling mentioned she respects each trans particular person’s proper to dwell any approach that feels genuine and comfy to them. “I’d march with you if you were discriminated against on the basis of being trans. At the same time, my life has been shaped by being female. I do not believe it’s hateful to say so,” she mentioned.
Along with different celebrities, the present’s lead actor Daniel Radcliffe too criticised her tweets and took a robust stand towards the topic of discrimination.
