As a Caucasian girl with brown hair and brown eyes I’m lucky; there are a lot of characters who look like me. However, I struggle to find characters with similar experiences, or struggles. For example, characters who are asexual.
I’ve always really loved Harry Potter. The books absolutely defined my childhood, and I often return to them when looking for something to reread. This is why I am so disturbed by J.K. Rowling’s recent transphobic comments. I really looked up to her as a child, and it hurts to see her publicly rebuke a marginalized community.
