This week the Harry Potter fandom was Neville fighting the Carrows. And then Harry Potter came busting through the portrait on the wall.
"Transgender women are women. Any statement to the contrary... goes against all advice given by professional health care associations who have far more expertise on this subject matter than either Jo or I." -- Daniel Radcliffe writing for @TrevorProject…

In all seriousness, Daniel Radcliffe is saving lives with this statement. As a trans person, I used movies and books as an escape from my life and Harry Potter was one of those spaces I found refuge in. From one Harry to another... thank you.

I have no choice but to post this Daniel Radcliffe stanning thread
1) I love that he did this with Trevor Project. It shows how mindful he is of the harm her comments had on trans youth. 2) What a fucking legend

Truly, @HouseOfBlackPod is making me love Potter this week which is a tall order - and challenging all of @pottercast’s audience’s perceptions? And I’m here for it. I hope you’ll consider following them /listening to them/$-wise supporting them (yes, we will be also!)
A YUP This is one of those background things you kind of forget until someone says it again…

This thread is a: important and b: full of things we never adequately talk about on @pottercast. @HouseOfBlackPod is taking over the feed today and I highly suggest if you’re an existing PotterCast fan you take in what they’re putting out.…
Alright friends we're back! Now let's discuss some of the problems that exist within the HP series. We can't really say we love something like this and not critique its shortcomings, right? So let's delve into some things here.

I am the host of @HouseOfBlackPod , a podcast I created specifically to help fill the void of Black HP fans. I reread the books from my perspective as a Black bi woman and analyze the broader themes of the book including oppression, racism, activism, etc.!

@jk_rowling (2) Once someone transitions to make their physical body reflect their gender identity, then the “sex” they then express is real. Trans women ARE real women, in their minds and in their bodies. Medical intervention on one person does not invalidate any who don’t need it.
Retweeted by Melissa Anelli
@jk_rowling I know you and I know you aren’t speaking out of hate. But I do have a different point of view about this. Gender can be “real” without being established irrevocably at birth by one’s chromosomes or one’s genitals. The brain is also an organ that determines gender. (1)

You can’t have allyship without compassion but you can have compassion without allyship. Just because someone’s nice and has done good things does not mean they are free from a need to change and grow. All of us need to change and grow.
But compassion =\= allyship. It helps and is necessary, of course, but it’s not enough. It’s the start.
I think generally “nice” people have a hard time internalizing this. Maybe even harder than overtly hateful people. Because you’ve put so much energy into compassion.
You can see someone being very nice to Black people and it does not mean they are not a racist. You can see someone with trans friends and it does not mean they don’t hold views and perpetrate actions that harm those friends’ ability to lead equal lives.
It took me a long time to learn this one. That just becuase I want to be kind to people, and want to seek to help where I see hurt, does not mean I don’t have views and systemic biases that can harm mindlessly.
Seeing a lot of things (and not just related to the author, but race matters too) like “I know this person, they don’t have a ____phobic/racist bone in their body.” This is important to flag. It’s a statement that conflates niceness and seeming compassion with views that harm.
Trans women are women. Trans Black people & trans non-Black people are discriminated against every single day. They’re dying. We’re fighting for Black people & trans people and you’re doing this?…

(I should say it’s just one of this week’s takeaways, not the only. But you get the idea.)
