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.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
