Just stop with this nonsense. The fact that she retweets comments that she agrees with on the subject of trans issues does not mean she endorses every view those people hold. If you can find a comment she has made that explicitly demonstrates her opposition to gay marriage, you need to show it instead of tarring her by association.

The most important thing I need to know is where does she stand on the Tran-Animal rights issue. There is so much literal death to these individuals. It is tragic. We must rally to protect all Trans-Animals ASAP!!

Despite what everyone parrots, JK NEVER actually said anything 'transphobic," unless you think saying that biological women have some experiences that are different from the experiences of "transwomen".

"Perhaps, and I’m just throwing this out there, the best way to prove your movement isn’t a threat to women, is to stop stalking, harassing and threatening us,” she added

She's a hero if there ever was one. We NEED people like her to fight against this movement that is subjecting lesbians to being told they have to suck "Lady Dick" or they are then doxed online.

You never hear the trans saying that straight men just need to suck a Lady Dick now do you?

Next time someone says she is "transphobic," ask them to show you SPECIFICALLY what she said that is "transphobic."

And be prepare for a long wait.

Yes, supporting anti-gay and anti-trans bigots is really good for heterosexual and other bigots.

I'm sure the reich wing is very proud of little brown shirts like you.

by Anonymousreply 20January 18, 2022 9:35 PM

I know you're limited R20, ,but JK agreeing with someone on the insanity of trans ideology, even though that person has other opinions that might be anti-gay, does NOT make JK Rowling anti-gay.

This has already been explained t you multiple times. Stop trolling.

Unless you really ARE that stupid that you think "Oh I agree with this person on X, therefore I must agree with EVERYTHING this person thinks about every other topic in the world!

She's lucky Jill Murphy never wanted to go to court. Then the self made billionaire would have to explain why the Harry Potter and Worst Witch series (which came out in the 70's, had so many similarities)

All Jill wanted was an acknowledgment from JK as being an influence, yet JK never gave that respect to her.

Murphy passed last year.

JK's a fucking phony who has no problem erasing women who step on her turf. No pun intended.

by Anonymousreply 23January 18, 2022 10:14 PM

JK Rowling's transphobia is one of those "facts" that isn't actually a fact, but just gets repeated enough that everyone suddenly believes it is true. Every article about her these days refers to her as a transphobe, or refers to her "transphobic comments."

Social media over-reaction has basically made her transphobia a "fact," and the fact that most of the people spreading this "fact" didn't actually read her essay, is a prefect example of the problems with social media, and with our society as a whole.

HRC was untrustworthy. Why? She just was. Or because Bengazi was investigated, or "her emails." Trump was "just like us" despite being born with a silver spoon in his mouth, staked by, and bailed out repeatedly by his father, and with a long history of screwing over regular joes who worked for him.

Why bother to actually look at the real facts, though. It is much easier to just buy into whatever is trending.

by Anonymousreply 24January 18, 2022 10:17 PM

She is awesome. She dared to express the view that women should perhaps be allowed to have a vsay before womanhood was redefined to render it essentially meaningless. She stands up for a woman’s right not to share a prison or a rape crisis centre with a woman with a penis.

She’s been slandered for a few years now, been criticised by people who owe everything to her talent, been subjected to threats of violence and generally been treated appallingly, and she copes with it all and just keeps writing bestseller after bestseller.

Even beyond the boring Terf/TRa issues, she has given so much cash to charity that she became the first billionaire to lose that status by giving so much to charity. And she stays in the UK, paying her taxes like everyone else, not attempting evasion or heading off to Monaco. I wish we had more like her.

They owe nothing to her. They're not entitled to defer to her for the rest of their careers.

Just as JK couldn't be bothered deferring to the female fantasy authors who helped make hers.

Karma's a bitch.

by Anonymousreply 26January 18, 2022 10:24 PM

R26, all authors are influenced by other authors. They build on the work of their predecessors. Do you blame modern thriller writers for following in the tracks laid by Poe, Wilkie Collins and Conan Doyle?

British children’s lit has a long tradition of boarding school stories, orphaned children, magicians, witches and wizards and coming-of-age stories. None of those ideas are especially modern and new, and no author has to defer to those who preceded them in those traditions. Why should they? The writers of the 20th century were themselves building on the work of those who wrote earlier.

Rowling’s genius was to package those traditions in a way which made children absolutely devour books, at a time when people were talking about the death of the novel.

R27 that lunatic is grasping at straws. "It" knows they can't really support the idea that JK is "transphobic" so they're just making up other crap equally as stupid.

[quote]"It" knows they can't really support the idea that JK is "transphobic"

Her own words have been used by the Republican party to block an LGBTQ equal rights bill. She's also been publicly supported by Marjorie Taylor Greene, who said that teaching gay people to children constitutes child abuse. Has she commented on either? Silence is complicity.

People who aren't self-loathing gays still looking for approval from the white woman who bullied them when they were younger know who she really is. Bringing up the fallacy of her statement about "Silencing woman" while she has publicly ignored the woman who paved the way for Harry Potter only highlight her true self. The Madonna of the literary world.

Rowling’s own words:

[quote] Months later, I compounded my accidental ‘like’ crime by following Magdalen Berns on Twitter. Magdalen was an immensely brave young feminist and lesbian who was dying of an aggressive brain tumour. I followed her because I wanted to contact her directly, which I succeeded in doing. However, as Magdalen was a great believer in the importance of biological sex, and didn’t believe lesbians should be called bigots for not dating trans women with penises, dots were joined in the heads of twitter trans activists, and the level of social media abuse increased.

Yep, sure sounds like she hates gay people…

Why would JKR care that politicians in a country that isn't her own are using anything she tweeted? You sound dumb, r29. You do know that Rowling worked for Amnesty International when she was young, right? She was hardly a bully as you claim. In fact her experience dealing with the trauma and fallout from atrocities around the globe shaped her worldview and highly influenced her writing. Listen to the commencement speech she gave at Harvard. Those are hardly the words of a bully as you claim.
