JK Rowling pokes the bear again

"Now hundreds of trans activists have threatened to beat, rape, assassinate and bomb me I’ve realised that this movement poses no risk to women whatsoever."

I've no strong opinions on Rowling but people who post targeted death threats on easily tracible twitter accounts are so retarded they deserve prison sentences. There's a reason the go to method used to be a an ethanol coated letter, comprised of words cut from magazines, posted anonymously.

This would only be "poking the bear" if the 'bear' isn't doing anything to her.

They have a particular hatred towards women. The straight kid that started #superstraight earlier this year had to take his original video down because T&Co started sending violent messages to his mother. They send rape and death threats at the drop of a dime then wonder why women don't want them in sex segregated spaces and also don't challenge them about the issue face-to-face. They're like MRA incels in a dress and ratty Korean wig.

[QUOTE]I have no doubt that they would follow through with their threats against Rowling.

R11 - I get what you're saying and it is very wise to take these threats seriously. But these people making threats at her...the vast majority (like way over 99%) are men with no social skills, who have achieved nothing at all in their lives. Why else would they feel the need to act this way? It's playing to the crowd of their fellow misogynists.

They never gang up on men in this way. Ever.

It's always men (however they "define" themselves, they're ALWAYS men) attacking women. Always.

Again, I have to put the caveat in for the hard of understanding; not all trans people behave this way or believe these people are right to behave the way they do. Most want a quiet life and to just get on with living it. These insane people (and I don't use that term lightly, they are mentally ill) have nothing else in their lives but fucking Twitter and that's tragic.

I may despise these men, but I despise even more the social media that brings them their microdot of infamy and sense of worth.

That tweet is in response to the crazy trans cult attacks on a woman called Milli Hill, who dared to say that the people who give birth are women. The twitter trannies are especially enraged right now because another woman called Helen Joyce has just published a book called "Trans: When ideology meets reality", which is very intelligent and well written. As with Rowling, the trans cult tried to smear her with accusations of anti-Semitism because she mentions Soros.

Meanwhile I've seen multiple women on here who have used Rowling's words as part of their series of threats about what they want to do to trans people and anyone they think supports trans. In a recent thread that got deleted, your buddy Matt said a lynch mob should be formed to exterminate trans, and two of you replied that you agreed.

R24 it's cute how you went from misinfo to "how can we be sure this is true??" (Implying that it isn't true when there are lots and lots of examples to the contrary) , pretending that people who might agree on this one issue are all the same or have the same motivation and opinions about everything else, and then finishing with a wide ad hominem attack against anyone supporting her or questioning the trans activists' tactics. Again, these same tactics are visible ALL OVER the internet, in every forum including this one, whenever "trans" is mentioned.

YOU can go to hell with your bad faith arguments, lies, obfuscations, logical fallacies, and gaslighting. It's clear what you are doing now, and more and more people are reaching "peak trans" every day due to this sort of thing. You and others like you are on the downhill slide, and you're desperately trying to keep that from happening.

Oh, I have an idea, what if you continue to overreach, bully and dogpile anyone who says otherwise, and then pretend it all didn't happen or was ACTUALLY people who are somehow working for these powerful people who are "anti-trans" and keeping trans people from existing? It may have worked for you thus far, but the facade is cracking.

JK Rowling gave that facade a mighty blow, and millions of people worldwide have seen the overwhelmingly ridiculous and hateful response to it from trans activists, who thought they could bully yet another woman into submission. In reality, the massive backlash against her from the trans activists and their useful idiots have served to "peak trans" more and more people who thought they were just "being kind" but realized they were helping a misogynistic, homophobic cult spread their lies and gain power.

In general, no matter how much I disagree with a person (and I don't with Rowling) about a justified opinion (one you can have and which is not against the law), I just have to respect or give props to someone for not budging and not changing ones opinion or apologizing.

There are many, many liberals who think self id is taking rights away from women and giving them to men. They're just afraid to speak out because of the extreme bullying, getting fired or dropped by publishers, cancelling, and hellfire the trans activists and their useful idiots rain down upon them.

r102 Very loosely extrapolated claim from some academic papers claiming "Cho Ching" in her books who is Asian, and how her (very common name) could sound like an Asian stereotype, and the fact that the goblin bankers in her books who have big noses, because Jewish people are known for noses and banking, not just because in her world, goblins look a certain way. Of course she's explained why she made those choices many times elsewhere in interviews, but they only look at the accusation and not the intent. That's all the "proof" they need.

It's irrelevant in any case, just more examples of them trying to attack her personally with ad hominem attacks, not her arguments, because her arguments are very reasonable and logical and they can't defend against them. So they attack her, try to claim she's a conservative, try to say she's racist, anti-Semitic, and a pedophile, etc.

Sorry that should be "Cho Chang". "Ching" is what they're saying it COULD be meaning, and is therefore veiled racism against Asians. Laughably bullshit.

r108 very good points. The way they get around that is by saying "the moment you say you're a woman, you've ALWAYS been a woman!" and totally ignore all the time you lived as a boy or a man and people who regret it later and de-transition. So it's not blackface since they were ALWAYS black!

r118 nice try, but it's an "LGBTQ" rights bill, which means "gender identity". That is also why the T needs to be separated from the LGB, so we aren't associated with the "men with penises in girls' locker rooms/womens' sports" trans activism.

That's how we lose our rights, too. Because "sexual orientation" is LGB, and "gender identity" is the rest of the TQIA++ word salad. So we can't advance our own rights now because they're tied to the increasingly inane demands from trans activists.

I don’t see how having a character named Cho Chang is racist just because the name sounds “Ching.” That is REALLY reaching.

As for the goblins, not sure they have big noses in the book, but they have long noses in the movies. If you look at old kids’s book illustrations of goblins they usually are small in stature with exaggerated features: long nose and fingers, enormous feet, etc. She didn’t invent that, nor do all Jewish people have “big” noses.

The one thing I CAN see is Winkie the elf talks like a stereotype American black slave. Though I guess her point is that house elves are slaves, so it’s not really off offensive except that some of the elves enjoy being slaves.

97 "people who menstruate" IS demeaning. "Birthing people" is demeaning. "Chestfeeding" is demeaning. I'm a woman and they won't get to define, erase and rebrand words, mock what shapes the way we lead and plan our lives. This is not about trans people having rights. It's about denying women theirs, denying them the mere words to address their issues to muzzle them. Every human should have the same rights, yes. However, I want no one with a dong in my changing room at the gym, no guys stealing medals, no guys in woman's prisons, no guys in women's safe houses. They want their own tournaments and facilities? I'm cool with that. It's not about protection, however, because if this would be the case, every trans activist would accept this option: it's about cosplaying women and taking what they have fought for. The development also skews the crime statistic, making men's crimes be listed as female crimes. Last but not least (see the "Equality Act", they leeched onto fundamental demands for equality that gay people have fought for for decades. This connection actively harms gay rights and gay acceptance and how gay people are perceived as a whole.

Rowling spoke out in order to try to put a stop to the madness, and it worked. The climate of fear over discussing trans issues has disintegrated. Plans for a gender self-id law have been abandoned in England and Wales and it's proving difficult to pass one in Scotland. Along with the Keira Bell case, she's helped to highlight the horrors of pushing kids into physical transitioning. She's made it possible for women to demand we are referred to as women and not as objects with certain functions.

This all started because Rowling had the nerve to point out that the word woman is being erased in favor of things like people who menstruate, and gestational parents. If words like that, which describe characteristics of people, rather than people as beings were used to describe the trans, the screaming about being dehumanized would be heard from all points on Earth, it would be so loud.

She's been very consistent with that, and she also knows she's one of the few people who can stand up for these people and support them when they're under the incredible stress of a full-on Twitter cancellation attempt.

It's because the general view of the transactivists is that "you are either 100% with us or 100% against us". There is only black and white with them. I was part of a conversation where I said everyone has the right to speak their point of view and was immediately condemned as "transphobic" by several others for "supporting terfs", even though I was including both sides.

There's no middle ground according to trans-supporters, so it's impossible to have a rational conversation with them.

But the problem is they get lumped in with the men who say they're trans yet have no interest in transitioning or even taking hormones, etc. So often the genuine trans people get hate that they don't deserve. It's a tricky one for sure.
