when you start watching a new show and immediately get attached to a character
Today it was revealed that J.K. Rowling will be co-producing a stage play based on Harry Potter. The play will not be written by Rowling, but she will collaborate with a playwrite and fellow producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender. The play will deal with “the previously untold story of Harry Potter’s early years as an orphan and an outcast.”
everybody LOSE YOUR MINDS
I have a few copies of “Playboy” from the 1970s stashed away somewhere. One of them has a letter where a guy writes in saying, “I met this really gorgeous, sweet woman, and we were planning to get married, but she sat me down yesterday and told me that she had a sex change before she met me. Mr. Hefner, should I marry someone who used to be a man?” and the response was, “So she had a sex change, big whoop. Would you be asking this question if she’d made any other change in her life before she met you? You love the woman she is now, and that’s all that should matter. If you want kids you can adopt or something.”
I feel so conflicted right now
That awkward moment when Hugh Hefner is more trans-positive than most feminists of the same era.
Hef was also one of the earliest adopters of integration. Hiring black writers and models for his magazine, as well as having black performers in his clubs, even in Miami and New Orleans where they were still legally supposed to be segregated.
