Default Has JK Rowling's transphobia put you off Harry Potter?

Some people are saying they can't enjoy Harry Potter as much as they did due to JK's bigotry - however I am of the opinion that I like the art, not the artist

What's she said that's transphobic? It's all a storm in a teacup, atop a mountain made from a molehill.

I will always appreciate the Harry Potter for what it is, but I won’t support anything she does in the future

I liked Harry Potter, but I will not be having any more to do with it, since the money would go to her.

Never liked the Harry Potter series in the first place, so not a dilemma i have to face. Though i don't think what she said was that bad in any case.

Exactly, what's all the fuss about? "Women and transwomen have different biology, and only one of these can menstrate." Yeah, she's practically re-igniting the ovens in Auschwitz...

...before these times when so many peopleís thoughts on so many things are known to us all/...social media times and the public tweeting of things etc...íthese conversations and opinionsí would have all been had in private over a glass of wine, I guess...so I have no idea about an authorís personal views on specific things in the past..?..I would just absorb a story that they had written...I donít know whether I would continue being a fan of hers because Iím not a particular fan as such anyway so I doubt know if any admiration I may have had, would feel Ďtaintedí in any way..thatís all for each person to decide individually, obviously...I do understand why an appreciation of her talents would continue also for those who have followed her work...

Did Kevin Spacey's films and series suddenly become crap after we heard what he had been up to? No ... he is still a good actor. Everyone does something that we disagree with if we look hard enough.

I was a big fan of a guitarist. He highlighted his political views on twitter and I thought ... what an ass hole ... but his music is still great and he is still a wonderful guitarist

...it didnít change what an excellent actor I think he is, heís one of my all time favourites...but I have no wish to watch any of his movies again...sexual assault is on another level and really canít be compared in the same way imo...
