Ralph Fiennes comes out in J.K. Rowling’s Support
J.K is a British author who came out to be transgender. She is the writer of the famous children’s favorite series Harry Potter in seven-volumes from 1997 to 2007. The series was mind-blowing, and a film was also made with its adaptations.
Apart from having a successful career, she also faces criticism on the social platforms after expressing her views about transgender people and related civil rights. She is being badly opposed by LGBT rights organizations and few feminists, even being warned by death threats.
If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth.

In a tweet from November, she tweeted about the threats she’s been receiving, from which she can paper her whole house also she haven’t stopped speaking out about them.
Ralph Fiennes takes her support
Ralph Fiennes who worked as an actor in the ‘Harry Potter’ film couldn’t accept the criticism against her and took stand officially and calls the death threats as disgusting and appalling.
In talks with the New York Times, Ralph Fiennes said about J.K. Rowling’s work in great books about empowerment, about young children finding themselves as human beings. He further added by talking about your perspective of how you become a better, stronger, more morally centred human being and calling the verbal abuse at her as disgusting, and appalling.
Ralph Fiennes also said about understanding a viewpoint that might be angry at what she says about women, But it’s not some obscene, über-right-wing fascist. According to him it’s just a woman saying, I’m a woman and I feel I’m a woman and I want to be able to say that I’m a woman. He also understands where she’s coming from, even though he isn’t a woman.
It wasn’t the first time Fiennes came forward; it’s been from in March 2021 from where the actor couldn’t accept the criticism. The actor in talks with The Telegraph said that he can’t understand the vitriol directed at her, he can understand the heat of an argument, but he find this age of accusation and the need to condemn irrational.
He also shares about the hatred being toxic for everyone by saying that he finds the level of hatred that people express about views that differ from theirs, and the violence of language towards others very disturbing.
