Cynthia Nixon says comments by the Harry Potter author were “really painful.” to her 23-year-old trans son.
In an interview with The Independent, Nixon, who played Miranda Hobbes in Sex and the City, said, “It was really painful for him because so much of his childhood was tied up with Harry Potter. We’re a Harry Potter family,” explained the former “Sex and the City” star. “The books seem to be about championing people who are different, so for her to select this one group of people who are obviously different and sort of deny their existence, it’s just… it’s really baffling.”
Nixon added: “I know she feels like she’s standing up for feminism, but I don’t get it.”
JK made headlines in June when she responded to an opinion piece which used the terminology “people who menstruate.”
JK tweeted in response: “I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?”
She continued: “If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased.
