JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, has had her name removed from a house at a high school that specializes in performing arts due to her comments regarding transgender people. One parent described the move as “censorship.”
The Daily Mail reported:
“The Boswells School in Chelmsford, Essex, had honoured the writer for one of its in-school groups, which had also been labelled with the quality of ‘self-discipline.’
But it emerged today she had been replaced over the summer with Olympic hero Dame Kelly Holmes.
The school had announced plans to review Rowling’s name in July after ‘requests from students and staff.'”
JK Rowling is an outspoken feminist, asserting she believes sex is real and not a social construct. This has drawn the ire of members of transgender community.
