This is quite possibly the dumbest story of 2021. The US Quidditch and Major League Quidditch organizations are looking to change their names because JK Rowling's pro-science views of boys and girls are considered to be "transphobic." Yes, the "sport" of Quidditch JK Rowling invented for
, a series of books for children. Grown-ass adults apparently not only play the sport in real life, but they have created professional organizations to govern the sport. The fictional sport that was created for child wizards to play in a children's book. This has apparently been going on since 2005. (h/t

JK Rowling wrote a series of children's books based on a character named Harry Potter. It was a fictional world of wizards and goblins that adults decided to base their lives on. It became extremely popular with the "resist" liberals who viewed the books as religious tomes to defeat
. They would often refer to themselves by the names of the sects in the Harry Potter universe in their never-ending fight to resist Donald Trump. Then, one day, JK Rowling, thinking she was defending women,
found herself on the wrong end of transgender activism
. "Trans" outranks "cis woman" on the left's pound-for-pound most marginalized rankings. Suddenly,
the Dave Chappelle of children's
authors was dubbed the Voldemort of liberals.
That brings us to the grown-ass adults who have formed organizations around a fictional children's game, where adults run around with brooms between their legs. You see, in the fictional Harry Potter world, players flew around on flying broomsticks. Unfortunately in the real world, broomsticks don't fly.
Per a press release on the
US Quidditch league website
, the leagues hope a name change
"can help them continue to distance themselves from the works of J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter book series, who has increasingly come under scrutiny for her anti-trans positions in recent years."
There's no word just yet on the new name for the sport that JK Rowling invented. I'd suggest the Virtue-signal-a-lympics. They could call it the Ham Sandwich League. It wouldn't change the fact that, for over a decade, alleged adults have been basing their lives around an imaginary sport meant to entertain children.
