This is the second time I’ve read this book. I’m a big fan of the Cormoran Strike novels, and the fifth one is just as enjoyable as the first. However, this is first JK Rowling novel I’ve read since she came out as TERF (Trans-Exclusive Radical Feminist), and I have mixed feelings. I think this is the last time I’ll read Rowling’s new works as I don’t believe in economically supporting people who do that much harm to vulnerable populations. However, I cannot deny that these novels and mysteries are very well developed.
I care about Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott, and I wish their creator was trying to do better.
So instead of a review, I thought I’d list some organizations we can all support:
The Brown Boi Alliance – http://www.brownboiproject.org/
National Center for Trans Equality – http://transequality.org/
Trans People of Color Coalition – http://www.transpoc.org/
TransYouth Family Allies – http://www.imatyfa.org/
Campus Pride – http://www.campuspride.org
Coming Out Guide – http://www.datehookup.com/content-a-guide-for-gays,-lesbians-and-bisexuals.htm
Two-spirits.com – http://www.2spirits.com/
There are many many more. But I would encournage folx to education themselves about gender identity, sex, sexuality, and just basically respecting human rights.
