His streams are pretty good tbf. Often have him on in the playing farming simulator while im doing other stuff. Mostly goes off on tangents about random things.

Have the issues brough to the fore in the recent JK Rowling furore been discussed in this thread previously? Would be interested in reading up if anyone can point me in the right direction.

It’s a bit hilarious that JK Rowling has chosen this as her hill to die on. All that was required for her to maintain widespread adoration for the rest of her life was for her to do absolutely *nothing.* Instead, she’s circling the drain faster than warm p*ss.

She's probably richer than some countries, and I doubt most Harry Potter fans or the public care about trans issues as much as social media makes it appear.

Is correct. Everything can seem a bigger issue than it is on the internet.

I think that rather naively assumes that trans rights won’t gain broader acceptance in the future. And not 100 years from now; we’re talking a decade or less down the road.

They might well but no-one will remember JK Rowling's comments by then and Harry Potter will continue to be wildly popular.
