Oh my gosh, Daniel Radcliffe's response to all of R*wling's TERF bullshit is both eloquent and delightful.

"Transgender women are women. Any statement to the contrary erases the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice given by professional health care associations who have far more expertise on this subject matter than either Jo or I."

This whole paragraph. 

"To all the people who now feel that their experience of the books has been tarnished or diminished, I am deeply sorry for the pain these comments have caused you. I really hope that you don’t entirely lose what was valuable in these stories to you. If these books taught you that love is the strongest force in the universe, capable of overcoming anything; if they taught you that strength is found in diversity, and that dogmatic ideas of pureness lead to the oppression of vulnerable groups; if you believe that a particular character is trans, nonbinary, or gender fluid, or that they are gay or bisexual; if you found anything in these stories that resonated with you and helped you at any time in your life β€” then that is between you and the book that you read, and it is sacred. And in my opinion nobody can touch that. It means to you what it means to you and I hope that these comments will not taint that too much."

Nice to see that both Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson are speaking out about this.

This whole paragraph. 

@InvaderXan that's really well phrased.

@InvaderXan screenshots like these also remind me how big Twitter is … flabbergasting.

@kensanata I think twitter is only really as big as you are. For those of us who haven't starred in numerous world famous movies, it tends to be quite a bit smaller.

@InvaderXan yeah. it was so eloquent that the terf karens felt they had to get online immediately and start counter narrativing about daniel radcliffe being a famous rich powerful man silencing poor little jk rowling because she dared speak up about how scared she was about the threat to her human rights trans women pose

@InvaderXan it doesn't escape my notice that the same 'threatened white woman who needs immediate and very violent rescue' shit that they weaponise against black men gets used against trans women too.

@FuchsiaShock Yeah, you're totally right. White cis women weaponising their fragility so they can get their way. And if anyone tries to call them out on it, they always double down.

@InvaderXan why censor the name? she's not gonna be namesearching here
