one thing that occured to me on the matter about the doxxing and posting address to to twitter thing, isn’t her address publicly known and has been part of a tourism thing for international potter fans for a long time since it’s a historical building? Even if someone were to use that to claim if this invalidates the stance of it being ‘doxxing’ (and I am not for her being harassed, just so we are clear. In an ideal world I would love for people to say what they like and then, if they present something that can be debunked and challenged, we do so and move on. Sadly people are not that intelligent if we look at how we only need one charismatic speaker to incite all kinds of atrocities, and thus I do understand where some come from in terms of deplatformation as well), this is exactly the kind of reason that if I ever got my book out I would absolutely never want anyone to know where I live or who I am.
For reference, there’s a trans character in my book, and knowing how people are these days, someone may take offense at it not being the representation they wanted (because them being trans is not central to the character’s narrative, it’s actually used as a minor plot point very early and isn’t really a part of her arc). Just to be on the safe side if I ever did book signings or live talks, I’d be going full Daft Punk with a helmet and voice distortion just to retain my damn privacy.
People for you.
