JKR being honored at the 2016 PEN Literary Gala and Free Expression Awards in NYC

Fast Forward to 1:48


J.K. Rowling has used her talents and stature as a writer to fight inequality on both a local and global level. Herself the frequent object of censorship in schools and libraries across the globe, as well as online targeting, Rowling has emerged as a vocal proponent of free expression and access to literature and ideas for children, as well as incarcerated people, the learning-disabled, and women and girls worldwide.

J.K. Rowling: "Protected as I am by citizenship of a liberal nation where freedom of expression is a fundamental right, my critics are at liberty to say I am trying to convert children to satanism, and I am free to explain that I am exploring human nature and morality. Or to say you're an idiot."

"If my offended feelings can justify a travel ban on Donald Trump, I have no moral grounds to argue that those offended by feminism or the fight for transgender rights or universal suffrage, should not oppress campaigners for those causes. If you seek the removal of freedoms from an opponent simply on the ground that they have offended you, you have crossed a line to stand alongside tyrants who imprison, torture, and kill on exactly the same justification."

"Oh my brother human, if I disagree with you in thoughts,principals, or beliefs, does this deny the fact that we are both human? All you and I have to do is respect each other. Tolerate the views of your opponents coolly and patiently. While listening to them, do not think to respond before listening to all opposing opinions."

You're welcome. :D

I loved her dig at Donald Trump in her speech. :lol:

Who likes Trump? :P

Nice, she's in New York to give a speech. :thud:

I can't wait for America to finally vote and see the results soon. :D

Not Jo that's for sure. Maybe because she has a brain. ;)

@jk_rowling: Goodbye NY. Next time I see you, I’ll be bringing #FantasticBeasts…

Looks like we're having a NYC premiere for Fantastic Beasts! :D

Lovely title.

I won't go into detail, but PinkNews posted some of her comments lately aimed at a bigoted person. *claps*

cry pretty 05-23-2016 09:00 PM

^I can imagine who the comments are about. :P
