Exactly. The metaphor of werewolf = AIDs fails on multiple levels, especially since with AIDs it was never really the disease itself that people were discriminatory towards, so really it reads more like homosexuality is the disease in this metaphor, and that's all kinds of fucked up. But there was also the whole problem of her implicitly conflating homosexuality with pederasty. The concept of Fenrir Greyback seemed to be inspired by a homophobic myth that was particularly popular in the U.K. that homosexual men with HIV were intentionally infecting children because they got off on it or something. >>3476503
That's exactly what she did and I will die angry about it.>>3476576
The fact that she won't even write grindledore into the Fantastic Beasts in this day in age, when everyone expects and wants gay representation in children's media, just proves that it was all lip service, imo.
