Due to its ‘gender-critical’ views, the Seattle Museum airbrushes J.K. Rowling from the Harry Potter exhibition

A Seattle museum wiped JK Rowling from their hall of fame and Harry Potter exhibition owing to her gender-critical ideas, which is another illustration of the pernicious nature of transgender society.

The renowned novelist was criticized by the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) in Seattle, Washington, which said that she had super nasty and divisive’ views. In a detailed blog post published on Saturday, it defended its choice to eliminate all references to Rowling, 58.

Harry Potter artifacts are still on exhibit at the museum, but any references to the franchise’s author have been taken out.

After asserting that transgender women could not alter their biological definition and that women should not be dismissed for making such claims, Rowling came under fire for her opinions on transgender matters. The museum would no longer include any allusions to Rowling, according to Chris Moore, the project manager for exhibitions who identifies as transgender and uses the pronouns “he/they”.

In a 1,400-word blog article published on Saturday, he claimed: “There’s a certain cold, heartless, joy-sucking entity in the world of Harry Potter, and, this time, it is not actually a Dementor.

We would want to believe the internet’s hypothesis that these books were actually authored by someone else, but this particular person is a little too vocal with her extremely vile and divisive opinions to be disregarded.

To lessen her impact, the curators chose to temporarily remove any of her artifacts from this gallery, Moore added, explaining the choice to airbrush her. It’s not a perfect answer, but it’s the best we could come up with in the interim while figuring out long-term procedures.

Before she officially voiced her opinions on trans issues for the first time in 2018, Rowling was honored by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame. The museum shared a three-paragraph biography of her literary accomplishments at the time and referred to the Harry Potter books as “beloved.

Moore, however, charged that the author’s works had “racial stereotypes,” “fat-shaming,” and a “lack of LGBTQIA+ representation.”
You won’t find any mention of or visual of the author on the artifacts because “we learned that Rowling was a problem,” he explained.

After all, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, and Daniel Radcliffe are all tremendously outspoken allies.

Rowling’s opinions on trans issues, according to Radcliffe, who rose to popularity last year playing Harry Potter in the film series, have ‘damaged’ young fans. “Trans women are women; trans men are men,” declared actor Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley.

Hermione Granger’s actress Emma Watson sent money to the transgender advocacy group Mermaids in 2020 and urged her Twitter followers to do the same.
