The Harry Potter Author J.K Rowling is under serious attack and support following her anti-trans tweets that triggered the trans community on twitter.
In a series of tweets to buttress her point out, on why erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to discuss their lives.
”If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth.”
”The idea that women like me, who’ve been empathetic to trans people for decades, feeling kinship because they’re vulnerable in the same way as women – ie, to male violence – ‘hate’ trans people because they think sex is real and has lived consequences – is a nonsense.”
”I respect every trans person’s right to live any way that feels authentic and comfortable to them. I’d march with you if you were discriminated against on the basis of being trans. At the same time, my life has been shaped by being female. I do not believe it’s hateful to say so.”
”’ve spent much of the last three years reading books, blogs and scientific papers by trans people, medics, and gender specialists. I know exactly what the distinction is. Never assume that because someone thinks differently, they have no knowledge”
According to Malcolm Clark in support of her assertion wrote ”J.K Rowling has pinpointed why so many gay peeps are concerned about the new version of trans activism. We used to be comrade-in-arms with our trans mates until some extremists insisted biological sex was an illusion. Our legal protections and our identities are based on it.”
this triggered a lot of reactions from people who are very disappointed by her tweets despite her position and status.
You are a world-renowned billionaire author of a beloved children’s book series and THIS is the battle you want to fight? A righteous proclamation of trans exclusion? In THIS economy? Jesus fucking Cho on a Ching Chang cracker.

The WORST part is the LGBTQ+ community gave you the benefit of the doubt because you are a brilliant person whose work has created magic for millions, including me. It’s even more disappointing than when you retroactively made Dumbledore down with dick and THEN said gay rights.
Gays & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD ) has also joined their voice to condemn.
