A Harry Potter event was canceled at an upcoming book festival in New Zealand over headline-making comments the best selling author J.K. Rowling made, in which she said only women can menstruate.
Organizers of the Featherston Booktown Karukatea festival in New Zealand, which will be held on May 6-9 have canceled an interactive Harry Potter quiz — which had been very popular at past events — according to a report by Stuff.
The article goes on to state the following:
Rowling has faced backlash by transgender activists for saying only women can menstruate. The author has also been labeled a “TERF” (trans exclusionary radical feminist) — a term referring to feminists who are considered too “radical” for even left-wing activists, as they do not believe that a biological man is a woman.
Festival board chairman Peter Biggs explained the decision to cancel the Harry Potter quiz, saying, “The overwhelming response was there was a risk around causing distress to particular members of the community and that was the last thing we wanted to do. We always thought Booktown should be an inclusive, welcoming place for everyone, so we took the decision not to go with Harry Potter.”
“The overwhelming response was there was a risk around causing distress to particular members of the community and that was the last thing we wanted to do,” because some people will be distressed by a family quiz.

What kind of battshittery is this world coming to where one cannot speak w/o being canceled? Right or wrong.
