Date for New Truly Me Meet Outfits (and other products)

Rumors have started circulating that the next Truly Me release will be on September 1. This new release will most likely feature not only meet outfits, but a bunch of new Truly Me dolls!


Another rumor is circulating that this release will feature a collaboration with the Harry Potter franchise for Truly Me. Mattel bought the toy rights to Harry Potter from Warner Brothers some time ago, and this is the first licensed collaboration with American Girl and another brand.

I am so excited to see the new Truly Me dolls, but am disappointed that American Girl chose to collaborate with Harry Potter due to the author of the Harry Potter books, JK Rowling's attacks on the LGBT community, especially transgender women. While I understand that Mattel owns the rights to Harry Potter toys and JK Rowling won't be making money off of this collaboration, it still is hurtful considering the hateful attacks on the LGBT community and transgender people this year. I won't be buying any of the Harry Potter items, but someone on Instagram said that if you do, you could match the cost of the item and donate it to a charity supporting transgender people, especially women and youth. Or just donate, even if you aren't going to buy anything: I did!


Here is a list of charities you can support:

For those of you guys who don't know, they are probably releasing the Harry Potter Collection on September 1st because that's the first day of school in the Hogwarts school year. Again, I resent J.K. Rowling for the way she is treating transgender people and the mean stuff she said about them, but I will always love Harry Potter and I am far from the only one out there. I stand with transgenders, but I might get the Harry Potter stuff. There are literally millions of Harry Potter fans out there and it will probably due pretty well. Don't blame the work of a bad person, blame the person. In Rainbowunicorncat1's video about the Harry Potter collection, there are one…

And transgender and non-binaries should have every right to go Hogwarts! I don't know if you saw my post about this, but because of this, I'm not only getting the boy dolls and making them transgender but also coming up with transgender main characters in my books after seeing a transgender lead in one of the Girls Survive books! I may not like the stuff J.K. Rowling said about transgender people, but I respect her talent. I don't need to approve of what she said to respect her talent. Without J.K. Rowling, there would be no Harry Potter... :(
