    What is the issue? All I see if TERF and I don’t know what that is. A quick google suggests some uber feminist anti trans situation?

    I had to look it up - Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist

    basically, she said trans women aren't women.

    She wrote an opinion column/post defending an employer for firing worker because they were trans.

    This reads like she’s defending Maya, whom I’m assuming is the trans person?

    I got it backwards. She defended the person that got fired, not the employer.

    I got it backwards Maya, got fired for saying you cant change the biological sex of a person. JK is defender her, not the employer.

    No. Maya is a woman who got fired for questioning if trans women should legally be considered women.

    Thankfully, Slughorn took over after my OWLs so almost any score could get me into 6th year potions where I could learn to brew wizard Rohypnol and the only important potion to ever know, Felix.

    Didn’t watch this one but I’ve seen a few of hers in the past and thought she sucked.

    Its an app. Your character is at Hogwarts before Harry. Ive been grinding this game everyday for 2 years and I am basically all the way caught up. In Year 6, Fred/George/Cedric are 1st years.

    But its basically a whole story and thats why I keep playing. There are cursed vaults you are looking at Hogwarts you are looking to find and destroy.

    I think we played this. Lots of places you get stuck for awhile and can purchase your way through. I think we ditched it because of all the in app purchases.

    Yeah its a time game it takes energy to complete stuff but you receive 1 energy every 4 minutes. I have played for 2 years and not spend a penny. Its just a daily grind to get everything. Now theres a quidditch side quest and you can adopt Care for Magical Creatures animals which takes notebooks which you can buy or grind to get.

    the problem is I can’t stop. When they released it they only had the first 3 years some. Now it’s chapter 21 of year 6. And they only release 1 chapter every week and sometimes skip a week for side quests

    Looked at it when I was wrapped up in the books last year but grinding in mobile games has taken its toll on me over the years. The chore of trying to keep up or catch up without spending money drains all the fun out of it.

    Just curious if you'd added that in. It makes it much harder, at least in my experience.

    So we've kind of had Harry Potter movies on in the background this last week and my 6 yr old has been somewhat into them, asking questions and such (will probably start reading the books to her soon).

    Today she randomly hit me with "Voldemort looks like grandpa" (my dad). Talk about a range of emotions between shock, sadness, and hilarity because I see where she's coming from but the reason being is because he looks like he's on death's door.
