It’s looking pretty lonely out there in JK Rowling’s TERF world. And that’s just the way it should be.
Emma Watson, Eddie Redmayne and Rupert Grint have joined Daniel Radcliffe, Bonnie Wright and Katie Leung in the same unequivocal message: Trans women are women.
All of this comes in response to the Harry Potter author, Rowling, whose message we won’t even link to because it’s nonsense, continued attempts to defend herself and gaslight us into thinking she isn’t as horrible as Dolores Umbridge.
But we, and the cast of the movies based on her books, can see right through her.
Watson’s tweet was clear:
So was Redmayne, who among other things, said “I disagree with Jo’s comments. Trans women are women, trans men are men and non-binary identities are valid.”

Grint released a statement that read:
“I firmly stand with the trans community and echo the sentiments expressed by many of my peers. Trans women are women. Trans men are men. We should all be entitled to live with love and without judgment.”

Previously, other Potter stars had weighed in:
We’re happy to see the stars of the Harry Potter world have understood the message of love and acceptance better than the author apparently did.
To everyone who feels saddened by JK Rowling’s words and what this means for a property that so many of us have loved for years, we just have this to say: We don’t need JK Rowling anymore. The books are ours. Go out and make beautiful, queer interpretations of it.
Happy Pride to everyone BUT JK Rowling.
