A Post-Mortem on the Trans Movement
Now that the trans movement is over, let's look where it went wrong
The trans movement has been on the ropes for some time, and it put all its energy into one final effort: Boycott the video game Hogwarts Legacy. The Harry Potter universe was made by J.K. Rowling, who has publicly stated that the X and Y chromosomes exist, and thus she is seen as the main enemy of the trans movement. So a boycott of the game Hogwarts Legacy would be seen as a rebuke of J.K. Rowling and the idea that biology is real — a concept anathema to the trans movement.
But Hogwarts Legacy is a big hit and sold over 12 million copies in its first two weeks1 alone. This can be seen as nothing other than a loud statement by the worldwide public that transwomen aren’t actually women, and thus this is the official end of the trans movement.
Well, the trans movement was fun and wacky while it lasted, and I think it’s time to look back at it and see where it went wrong and why it culminated in commercial success for a wizard game.
