Foolish is as Foolish does

In this case Rupert Grint.

He explained his decision to voice his opposition to Rowling’s comments saying that while he has a ‘huge respect’ for the author, he can still disagree with her views.

This simple statement is perfectly true. I respect people with whom I disagree.

However, where it gets foolish is this:

Rupert admitted that while he was ‘not an authority’ on the debate, he felt he had a responsibility to speak out in support of the trans community as ‘silence is louder’.

This is so much word salad. He has no such responsibility. There is no such thing as a trans community, just as there is no such thing as a gay community. There are individuals, some of whom have these characteristics. And, frankly, silence is a damned sight better than making a foolish comment – especially when you are not an authority on the subject.

You see, Rowling said nothing wrong. She has not attacked people for being trans, she has merely stated biological facts. If anything needs defending, it is this.

Shockingly, a hashtag calling for the author’s death was the number one trending tag on Twitter in October last year.

These are the people with whom Grint is aligning himself.

In a statement to The Times, Rupert said: ‘I firmly stand with the trans community and echo the sentiments expressed by many of my peers. Trans women are women. Trans men are men.

No, they are not. Biology is biology and cannot be changed, only the outward appearance. Sure, you can transition and live your life as the opposite sex. You can present yourself as such and expect – reasonably – to be treated as such. However, those chromosomes will still tell their own story and if someone digs up your skeleton in a few centuries time, those archaeologists won’t know you were trans, all they will do is decide if the remains are male or female based upon the skeletal structure. However, do what you will. I will happily support your right to do so and live your life as you see fit and acknowledge you as you wish to be acknowledged, because I am a decent, polite person.

‘We should all be entitled to live with love and without judgement.’

This and my comments above are not exclusive.

Daniel, 31, who played titular hero Harry, said in a statement to the Trevor Project: ‘Transgender women are women.

‘Any statement to the contrary erases the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice given by professional health care associations who have far more expertise on this subject matter than either Jo or I.’

Daniel is an idiot. Those healthcare professionals are lying. They are denying reality. And pointing out biological facts does not erase anyone and only a half-wit would try to claim that it does – that or someone who has malign intentions. Sooner or later there will be an almighty backlash and the likes of Tavistock will pay a heavy price for what they have done to prepubescent children. This ideology is poison.

Yes, some people are trans. But never forget the basic facts – you cannot change biological sex. If people wish to transition, then fine, but it must be an informed decision taken by an adult who understands the risks and costs of doing so. But they will never change their chromosomes and their skeletal structure. As for my comment about biology, bear in mind this – transitioning involves a lifetime of hormone therapy to beat that biology back. The new surgically created vagina will try to close up unless regularly dilated with a stent as the body treats it as an open wound.

If people wish to endure this, then fine. And those who do usually just want to get on with their lives. I suspect that most of those making noises, wibbling about some mythical “community” and issuing death threats to dissidents aren’t trans at all, just as BLM protesters are predominately middle class, white, clueless kids who have been propagandised by the cultural Marxists.

As is Rupert Grint.


  1. I used to go to school with his father, must say the apple didn’t fall far from the stupid tree.

  2. ‘We should all be entitled to live…

    …with love…
    Erm. Ok, I guess. I mean, assuming you can find someone who loves you. Not everyone does, which is sad. I’m not sure about being entitled to love? I put this down to just clumsy word usage.

    …and without judgement.’
    Yeah, no. F*ck off you ignorant sh*t.
    Everyone gets to judge everyone. And stable society requires people to be able to call you out on your behaviour when it transgresses too far or becomes undesirable, if not downright dangerous, for societal stability. Because the alternative is not pleasant.
    And if you want to remove the ability to judge, you’re trying to control what people can think or say, which is a complete sh*tlord move.

    • I agree. I let that part of it go as it wasn’t really my main thrust. Also, providing people are doing no harm, what does it matter anyway?

  3. Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and prove it, or words to that effect.

  4. That’s a vary good point about digging up the bones in a couple of centuries, which adds to my belief that it’s all psychosomatic (I used to think it was all in their heads, groan).
    Last weeks special interest group was women, the day before yesterday it was blacks, yesterday it was gays and lesbians, today it’s trans. God only knows what we have coming tomorrow.

  5. Addendum – very, not vary and I forgot the ropers (but they will always be THE special interest group).

    • There is a group that is currently the victim of massive persecution, oppressed, downtrodden and discriminated against that must soon be given a voice – WHAMs. White, Heterosexual, Able-bodied, Male.

      Marginalised, vilified in the press, blamed for everything, whose contribution to society is being written out of history. Every contribution to mankind’s development made by WHAMs is airbrushed out of the record or claimed to have been made by someone else.

        • Shouldn’t that be super-straight white able bodied male? SWAM? One thing I have noticed is that the term super-straight gets right up their noses, so best to use it as much as possible.

  6. “We should all be entitled to live with love and without judgement.”

    Providing you don’t disagree with us and agree with reality instead.

  7. Never understood how having a medical procedure makes you a man. I have the correct parts to be defined as one, was born that way, but I don’t really identify as a man, I am just objectively so.

    Seems to me that since toxic masculinity is a thing, or so I’m told, we probably shouldn’t allow any more volunteers into our toxic club.

    • Actually, I’m not sure that we are. How many of the screeching voices are actually trans themselves? The people we are pandering to are the cultural Marxists. The kind of scum that are trying to ban the terms mum and dad in an attempt to engage in linguistic engineering. It’s a way of forcing us to think differently by changing the words we use. The tiny minority of trans people are merely a useful tool.

      • yup, if you control language you control thought. It’s all bread and circuses. Just a distraction to keep the masses occupied.

  8. Well, well, well, the reality and objective truth is out and morons saying trans women are women are to be pitied as the morons they are. Biological reality is you are genetically male XY or female XX re your sex chromosomes. That’s an end of it. Men and women cannot change their sex. They can adopt a different sex role through play acting or via surgery and hormone treatment but that is all they can do. I would also diagnose a mental illness behind this too in all probability.

  9. Presumably if he feels that strongly about crossing the line into personal criticism of people like Rowling, he might want to have a chat with his pretentious woker friend Emma Watson and remind her who is actually responsible for all the fortunes they now enjoy.

    • Quite. I recall when she was writing the Harry Potter books. She was featured in a writing magazine I was taking at the time. She worked hard at what she did – even if it is derivative. She, and she alone, created the opportunity for these vacuous nobodies to get rich.
