    That was the worst? If they came up with that on their own and didn’t just copy someone then that’s pretty creative at least.

      Its not what the quote says, but who the quote comes from.

      JKR is a hateful, raging TERF. Something like Voldemort for trans people.

      I’m NB and quoting Harry Potter just sounds like you hate me

      Edit: also I get very few people messaging me first

      Edit 2: I really don’t understand the downvotes outside of maybe just enjoying Harry Potter. This is just a personal experience I’ve had.

      Harry Potter stuff directly funds anti-trans organizations and that leads to the furthering decline of mental health among trans people which leads to them dying.

      Sure, an opening message doesn’t send any money to JK but it’s a massive red flag that someone is willing to send money to JK.

      People are allowed to enjoy things, but in turn, I’m also allowed to decide not to talk to someone for funding hate speech.

        I’m NB (to the extent that I’ve had surgery to remove gendered parts of me) and sometimes I just let my friends enjoy one of the biggest cultural events of their childhood without making everything about me because I’m capable of seeing that their actual actions have always been wholeheartedly supportive of me and that’s the part I actually care about.

          And I’m glad you’re able to do that and have people around you that support you. This doesn’t change the fact that I don’t enjoy people who promote something that funds people like me dying.

          If you’re able to get over that, that’s awesome and I believe you deserve good things, I am simply not able to.

            There is no ethical consumption. Even a bunch of the food in America is funded by prison slave labor. I’ve been sick for months and one of the only things I can stomach is bananas and chiquita just funded another cartel to kill a bunch of poor farmers over them. I’m not going to blame other people who are poor and discriminated against because of what rich people do, that’s the entire point of the psyop / propaganda. Let the gotdamn poors enjoy the bread and circuses; it’s all they’ve got anymore.

              I agree completely. There is no ethical consumption under capitalism… You’re entirely right.

              However, just like I choose not to use Facebook, I can choose not to talk to certain people. I don’t understand why that’s such a bad thing.

              I also wouldn’t talk to someone who says their idol is Andrew Tate.

        I guess it is bad in the sense that it’s not great pick-up line to use in your case, but I do like the creativity. Would’ve been better used to someone with some Harry Potter stuff in their bio though

        wowwww a trans person sharing their experience being heavily downvoted.

        Lemmy is transphobic as fuck!!

        edit: the downvotes literally just prove my point ✨
