Liberals want to cancel J.K. Rowling after ‘transphobic’ tweet

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is typically someone the left loves – she often tweets against President Trump and Brexit and usually supports left wing ideology. But cancel culture has come for Ms. Rowling after a tweet she wrote supporting Maya Forstater, who was fired for saying that people cannot change their biological sex they were born with.

“Dress however you please. Call yourself whatever you like. Sleep with any consenting adult who’ll have you. Live your best life in peace and security. But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real? #IStandWithMaya #ThisIsNotADrill,” Rowling wrote.

Slate published a piece saying the author can “no longer be considered a LGBTQ ally” and that “Thursday’s tweet was her most overt example of transphobia to date.”

The Human Rights Campaign tweeted at her that, “Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Non-binary people are non-binary. CC: JK Rowling.”

Others said they were extremely disappointed with her stand, calling for her to apologize.

Others accused her of coming out as a TERF, which stands for transgender exclusionary radical feminist.
