And so was Silence of the Lambs.  I don't think any character should be taboo.  Now no one can ever write about black, gay or transgender serial killers because.... they're discriminated against in real life?  hmmm...   that's just wrong.  Don't you ever draw a cartoon of Mohammed...

Maybe with JK, once you tell her she can't write something, she's going to tell you to **** off.  A gay Dumbledore (sp?) is an example, I think.

She and all other authors are free to do write whatever they like.  Hey, I'm middle-eastern, have you ever seen any of us depicted nicely in movies or books?  I'm quite used to it.

However, my point is that my beliefs about Rowling evolved when I read about her depiction of her character.  I used to think she's about traditional feminism but I have to now agree that she does appear specifically anti-trans (and not just about protecting the sanctity of traditional feminism).
