Brian Cox compares the accusations of transphobia against the author JK Rowling with fascist movements in history.
the actor of Succession participated in an interview on the show Sunday With Laura Kuenssberg last Sunday (15), where he discussed the topic. He said he was “disgusted” at the way the artist is being treated just for “expressing his opinion” (via Metro UK):
“I actually don’t like the way she’s being treated. In fact, I think she has a right to her opinion, she has a right to say how she feels as a woman, and she has every right to say how she feels about her own body.” not from herself.
The actor also claims in a problematic speech that as a woman the author would have the right to invalidate the identities of other women she accuses of being mere male sexual abusers.
“There is no one who can say this better than a woman. So honestly I think people feel very superior and powerful about their attitude towards JK Rowling, honestly.”
Earlier, Brian Cox had spoken out against what he called the author’s “cancellation,” likening the incident at the time to political regimes trying to force their views on them by force.
“This is total fascism. You know, it’s complete hypocrisy.”said.

Unsurprisingly, JK Rowling is constantly engaged in transphobic statements, which have been compared to those of trans-exclusive feminist movements. According to extremist groups, only women born with a vagina can be women, ignoring the transsexual population.
The author also baselessly accuses trans women of “pretending” to be women in order to access women’s toilets and to rape other women. “War and peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. The man with a penis who raped you is a woman,” he said on Twitter.
Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watsonwho played Harry and Hermione in the films based on JK’s work, spoke out against the artist’s biased statements.
“Trans women are women. Any statement to the contrary erases the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice from professional health organizations who have far more experience on the matter than Jo or I,” Daniel said in a public statement.
Emma also commented: “Trans people are who they say they are and deserve to live their lives without constant questioning or being told they are not who they are,” she said.
