As much as I enjoy roasting the Potterverse, I wouldn’t mind if bringing it up here was banned (at least as long as JKR is still alive, if ENWorld outlives her), because I value those vulnerable people you mention more than that roasting.I don't know if that is the primary question before us. I expect the real questions are:
1) Can you talk about it without reminding the vulnerable among us that they are vulnerable, and one of the richest media personalities in the world is actively undermining their safety?
Answer: Probably not.
2) Can you remind them of this, and not have them feel like you don't care about their safety, and thereby make them feel even more unsafe?
Answer: Again, probably not.
3) Do you care about making these vulnerable people feel unsafe here?
In the end, the primary question is about how we treat each other: You've been told this is a problem for some people. Do you ignore that, or not?
At the same time, there is some merit in discussing problematic creators, but I also recognize I’m speaking on the subject from a place of privilege and being basically unaffected by her campaign of hatred so it’s much easier for me to feel detached.
It’s fine, we just rolled with it.Huh, looking at everyone else's responses here, I appear to have been interneting wrong for some time. Sorry for the confusion!
