Feb 4, 2019 - Credit my instagram account @another_eddie_redmayne Most recently, Redmayne once again joined the chorus of figures condemning the unapologetic, rampant, and deliberately violent transphobia of Harry Potter author J.K.

Redmayne’s cancellation is somewhat reminiscent of the film Final Destination, where people who cheat death are then hunted down by death itself. But where Harry Potter alums such as Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint have each done their part to affirm trans folks’ humanity after having worked with Rowling, the same cannot be said of Redmayne, who is currently on-set filming the third installment of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them series. It sends a message to all survivors of domestic and sexual violence that they will not be believed, and it is dangerous.”. However, Redmayne felt that the insults to trans people on social media is 'equally disgusting'. The actor said he was alarmed by the abuse directed at the Harry Potter author and revealed he had sent her a private note.

“If you could come inside my head and understand what I feel when I read about a trans woman dying at the hands of a violent man, you’d find solidarity and kinship. So in short, Redmayne has gone for the old “I disagree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it”, which until recently was regarded as rather a reasonable sentiment. Surely such support for someone with whom you disagree is infinitely more likely to win respect for your cause than tweeting that JK Rowling can “suck my big transgender c**k”. Redmayne's apparent defence of Rowling comes after he publicly disagreed with her lengthy essay on transgender rights. By comparison, in 2018, when Scarlett Johansson was announced as the lead in Rug & Tug, playing a trans man, the objections were so fulsome that she was obliged to relinquish the role. “There continues to be a hideous torrent of abuse towards trans people online and out in the world that is devastating,” he said in a recent interview with The Daily Mail. But tweeting JK Rowling telling her that you wish she had cancer belongs to the same category as throwing milkshakes on people who voted for Brexit. Wimpund? We need people in positions of power, like Eddie Redmayne, to use that power to subvert the figures and institutions that continue to make trans peoples’ rights into a subject of debate when there is no debate. I disagree with Jo’s comments. The actor said … There is now even a bookstore in Australia that refuses to sell Rowling’s books anymore. An Academy Award-winning actor with no shortage of professional opportunities, Redmayne has a moral obligation to sever his repellant relationship with J.K. Rowling immediately — an obligation he set for himself after publicly discussing his intention to advocate for trans equality. Where the former performance was harmful in that it flattened trans identity to the particulars of transition, the latter perpetuates the fallacy that simply criticizing transphobia will make it go away.

Just over a week later, news broke that four authors had quit Rowling’s literary agency, Blair Partnership, after the company refused to meaningfully condemn Rowling’s transphobia. them, a next-generation community platform, chronicles and celebrates the stories, people and voices that are emerging and inspiring all of us, ranging in topics from pop culture and style to politics and news, all through the lens of today’s LGBTQ community. They simply want to live their lives peacefully, and it’s time to let them do so.”. I'm sure there used to be a word for those people. Let’s not forget that earlier this year, when JK Rowling first nailed her colours to the mast, Redmayne joined Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson in speaking publicly about his disagreement with Rowling’s views. by Rupert Everett, review: a candid We need organizing. Ad Choices, If Eddie Redmayne Really Hated TERFs, He'd Stop Taking Their Money, Harry Potter Saved My Life. I’m not sorry for slapping her." For all his talk of the “hideous abuse” faced by trans folks from high-powered TERFs, Redmayne appears content to have his checks essentially signed by one. However, the scars left don’t disappear, no matter how loved you are, and no matter how much money you’ve made.”. As we’ve seen throughout this summer, boycotts of Rowling are becoming commonplace. Trans women are women, trans men are men and nonbinary identities are valid.”. Redmayne’s cancellation is somewhat reminiscent of the film Final Destination, where people who cheat death are then hunted down by death itself. But where Harry Potter alums such as Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint have each done their part to affirm trans folks’ humanity after having worked with Rowling, the same cannot be said of Redmayne, who is currently on-set filming the third installment of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them series. It sends a message to all survivors of domestic and sexual violence that they will not be believed, and it is dangerous.”. However, Redmayne felt that the insults to trans people on social media is 'equally disgusting'. The actor said he was alarmed by the abuse directed at the Harry Potter author and revealed he had sent her a private note.

“If you could come inside my head and understand what I feel when I read about a trans woman dying at the hands of a violent man, you’d find solidarity and kinship. So in short, Redmayne has gone for the old “I disagree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it”, which until recently was regarded as rather a reasonable sentiment. Surely such support for someone with whom you disagree is infinitely more likely to win respect for your cause than tweeting that JK Rowling can “suck my big transgender c**k”. Redmayne's apparent defence of Rowling comes after he publicly disagreed with her lengthy essay on transgender rights. By comparison, in 2018, when Scarlett Johansson was announced as the lead in Rug & Tug, playing a trans man, the objections were so fulsome that she was obliged to relinquish the role. “There continues to be a hideous torrent of abuse towards trans people online and out in the world that is devastating,” he said in a recent interview with The Daily Mail. But tweeting JK Rowling telling her that you wish she had cancer belongs to the same category as throwing milkshakes on people who voted for Brexit. Wimpund? We need people in positions of power, like Eddie Redmayne, to use that power to subvert the figures and institutions that continue to make trans peoples’ rights into a subject of debate when there is no debate. I disagree with Jo’s comments. The actor said … There is now even a bookstore in Australia that refuses to sell Rowling’s books anymore. An Academy Award-winning actor with no shortage of professional opportunities, Redmayne has a moral obligation to sever his repellant relationship with J.K. Rowling immediately — an obligation he set for himself after publicly discussing his intention to advocate for trans equality. Where the former performance was harmful in that it flattened trans identity to the particulars of transition, the latter perpetuates the fallacy that simply criticizing transphobia will make it go away.
