Emma Watson, best known for the Harry Potter movies and Disney's live action Beauty and the Beast, boldly declared her support for trans rights.


In a tweet on Thursday, Watson posed, strong-armed, in a shirt that read "Trans Rights are Human Rights," tagging prominent trans rights groups and charities Stonewall, Mermaids, All About Trans, and Gendered Intelligence.

There were many who were enthusiastic about the support.


Trans rights organizations thanked the star for her message.

There were, however, some disagreements.


Watson's show of support came at a pivotal time, ahead of the closure of the UK government's consultation on reforms to their 2004 Gender Recognition Act. While no one knows the exact form the new law will take, trans, non-binary, and non-gendered people are hoping to smooth out a process that can be harrowing and invasive.

Support from the star is very appreciated.

So keep an eye on them.

And not for envy, for your own safety.

They're probably plotting something.

And all it takes is one grievance committed by another to make a person snap.

Someone going postal could be the result of a significant other's infidelity, appalling customer service, or individuals on either side of an argument over abiding by certain health protocols.

And that changes day to day, or even by the hour.

I love to save money. And sometimes I tear up when I have to pay a bill that feels a little high.

I love to look at my bank account and watch the amount rise.

When it falls, I shudder.

So I will always look for a deal when shopping. Give me a clearance rack anytime.

But even in my delirium of thrift I can admit, that sometimes, there is an item or three where higher quality counts.

And higher quality often comes with a higher price tag.

So I spend what I have to... and then cry.
