As much of the Harry Potter fandom knows, this community has been divided due to the unfortunate statements by the author of the saga, JK Rowling, who has been accused of being a transphobic person. This, since she has repeatedly criticized or directly attacked that community, such as in 2019, when defended to the researcher Maya Forstater who was fired for opposing the idea that trans people identify with a gender other than the one they were legally assigned at birth.
Debate about whether we should separate the work of the artist that has also made it to video games, as there are many people who are calling for a boycott of the upcoming title based on the world of Harry Potter, Hogwarts Legacy. Boycott that Resetera has joined, which must undoubtedly be the most popular in the world, where it has been forbidden to create discussions and not even mention the Avalanche Software and Warner Bros. game.

In an official statement, Resetera indicates that “after continuous internal discussions, we began to outline the issues raised by Rowling and the aforementioned video game, and as we did so we returned to the simple fact that JK Rowling is not only a bigot, but a pusher. , from her position as rich and famous, in favor of legislation that is detrimental to the trans community”.
“That is, he uses his influence and money earned from the success of Harry Potter to promote transphobic laws,” the text says.
This is how to finish, they indicate that “the team of mods has decided to extend our previous prohibition of promotion of the Hogwarts game to include the game itself”, also adding as a warning that “as a reminder, we do not allow defense or meta-commentary about content ban decisions, which are decided by the team of moderators. Anyone we see, whether for or against, will be threadbanned at the very least.”
