    Hey, the astronomy dude is pretty cool, I've watched some of his shows and they are fun and educational. Popularizing science in general and astronomy specifically is a good thing deserving of respect.

    Oh come on, it is a great setting for rpg. Not all fantasy has to be grimdark and political, or some generic high fantasy.

    IIRC she wasn't even "disliking trans" at first, just defended some of her friends who disliked trans. And now it's

    Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia. They are all made up concepts. Almost no one described as such is actually afraid, merely in opposition. It would do much to improve discourse if the terms used were not so ideologically loaded.

    Islamophobia is rational response if you are living in close proximity to Muslims with wahabbi or salafist leanings. I'm not so phobia definitely doesn't describe my thoughts, despite definitely being against Islam.

    Anyway, the Islamophobia was there to pad out the list. Transphobia was the point.

    Will the black native people of England practice some kind of 18th century Voodoo, or will they say the same words, wave the same wands, and not even wear a bone up their nose?
    Right now F2 Sulik seems like a more diverse representation than Warwick Davis magical midget jew.

    They will arrive in flying pyramids, talking about the Wakandan school of Magic, but evil whitey mages will curse them, turning their massive palaces utilizing cold fusion into mudhuts, and them into retards. You as protagonist will either join the whiteys making the curse (the super evil option that will make you literally worse than Voldemort) or found a secret society targeted at breaking the curse (named BLM – Break Light-skin Magic).

    But that's the point. It makes the person who's against these things sound personally deficient.

    They keep saying "transphobia" like it's something bad.

    In the land of Progress, refusing to date a trans is not a crime yet?

    Really? I couldn't find much of anything on the subject (aside from Warner Bros. saying its "position on inclusiveness is well established"). I imagine that if they really had anything to show to the SJW crowd they'd have done so already.

    This is actually one of the reasons they're upset at Rowling. There was an English lesbian feminist who dared say she doesn't want to fuck people with dicks, even if they call themselves women. She was cancelled, naturally, for this vile and hurtful comment. Rowling made the mistake to take her side and tweet in support.

    You should read this thread again. Start from page 1.

    Read it and weep. At least this vile transphobe has since died of brain cancer, and her hurtful bigotry will not trouble anyone anymore.

    There's a passage in the fourth book that says the exact opposite:

    I don't disagree that the rules of magic don't make any sense (or rather Rowling never wrote those rules down) and magic's just a plot device, but the killing curse isn't open to everyone

    So how in the fuck could Draco Malfoy pull it off? He didn't even WANT to kill Dumbledore, so no killing intent can explain this.

    he's a pureblooded wizard so he's got magic+++

    I'm not joking. That's the actual explanation. JK Rowling was always an anti-racist racist.

    Wasn't Dumbledore a dead man walking at this point?
