“Our two organizations believe it is necessary to live up to this reputation. This decision [de changer de nom] A step in the right direction is “add two leagues, which indicates that JK Rowling has been “increasingly chosen for her anti-trans positions in recent years”.
A few months to find a new name
The new name of the game is yet to be discovered. “The league will offer a series of polls over the coming months to find this new name,” the statement said.
Although both organizations must keep their abbreviations, which means that the new name of Quidditch may also begin with the letter “Q”, the particular site assumes Polygon.

In 2020, JK Rowling shared an article on twitter Invoking “people who have periods”, commenting ironically: “I’m sure we’ll have to have a word for these guys. Somebody help me. Fum? Fem? Femm?”.
