A Scottish band with a transgender frontwoman has released a new song with an appeal from Harry Potter author JK Rowling.

Glasgow duo Comfort are fronted by transwoman Natalie, and their new track Real Woman sees her explain that, as the title suggests, she’s as real as any woman.

In the song, Natalie sings that she’s “never been so interested in what’s between my legs”, but jokes: “I don’t blame them, I think I’m fit too.”

In the video, the musician can be seen pretending to use a urinal while singing “I’m an adult human woman,” and continues with “I’m as real as Rowling,” referring to the author’s controversial comments about the transgender community.

At the same time, Natalie lifts her top to reveal two photos of the 57-year-old covering her nipples.

The new song serves as the lead single from Comfort’s upcoming album Wha’s Bad Enough, due out in May.

Author Rowling has come under fire in recent years for her controversial comments about the trans community, including criticism of a 2020 article that referred to “people who menstruate” rather than women.

Last year, the author faced renewed backlash from the LGBTQ+ community when she backed a protest against the Gender Recognition Reform Bill, which she described as “the biggest assault on the rights of Scottish women and girls”.

Rowling has recently launched a new support service in Scotland for cis women who have experienced sexual violence or abuse and said in its statement “to address what I believe is currently an unmet need for women in the Lothians region”. .

“As a survivor of sexual assault, I know how important it is for survivors to have the opportunity for women-centered and feminine care at such a vulnerable time.”

The launch came shortly before the Scottish Government’s final vote on plans to reform the Gender Recognition Act, which will allow people to identify themselves as their gender rather than seeking a medical diagnosis.

The bill – which Rowling vociferously opposed – has since been blocked by Westminster.

Rowling’s opinion drew mixed reactions from the stars of the Harry Potter film franchise, with lead actor Daniel Radcliffe saying he wanted queer and trans youth to know that “not everyone in the franchise feels that way.”

Emma Watson and Rupert Grint joined Radcliffe to speak out for the trans community at the time, while Voldemort actor Ralph Fiennes criticized the abuse she suffered.

Other stars associated with the Harry Potter franchise support her tooincluding Hagrid actor Robbie Coltrane who died in September at the age of 72.
