American actress and politician, “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon criticized British writer J.K. Rowling for speaking out about transgender people. She spoke about this in an interview with the Independent.
As the actress says, the tweets of the writer touched her personally, because Nixon's 23-year-old son Samuel is transgender.
It was really painful for him because most of his childhood was associated with Harry Potter. We are a family of Harry Potter fans. The books seem to be about protecting people who are different from others, so for her to pick one group that is clearly different and kind of denies its existence … it's really puzzling. I know that she thinks that she is defending feminism, but I do not understand this, ”said Cynthia.
As a result, the actress and politician admitted that Rowling's position did not affect her family's love for the saga about the young wizard – now they are reviewing these films, and halfway to the sixth.
When asked if Samuel felt uncomfortable about this against the background of the scandal around the writer, Nixon retold the statement of Daniel Radcliffe, who played the role of Harry Potter in the famous franchise.
He tried to convey to people that if you, being queer (sexual and gender minorities – ed.) Or not, found a home in these stories, do not let all this take it away from you. These are still your stories, ”Nixon said.
