‘Harry Potter’ author J.K. Rowling pushes back against angry rage mob

J.K. Rowling, the author behind the beloved ‘Harry Potter’ series, has been effectively canceled by the liberal rage mob after some tweets she made about transgender individuals and biological sex.

They’ve labeled her a “TERF,” which stands for “Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist,” but Rowling is doubling down on her beliefs, penning a letter saying, “I refuse to bow down to a movement that I believe is doing demonstrable harm in seeking to erode ‘woman’ as a political and biological class.”

The tweet that started the firestorm read:

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.

She went on to say in her letter that:

I’m concerned about the huge explosion in young women wishing to transition and also about the increasing numbers who seem to be detransitioning (returning to their original sex), because they regret taking steps that have, in some cases, altered their bodies irrevocably, and taken away their fertility. Some say they decided to transition after realising they were same-sex attracted, and that transitioning was partly driven by homophobia, either in society or in their families.

Most people probably aren’t aware – I certainly wasn’t, until I started researching this issue properly – that ten years ago, the majority of people wanting to transition to the opposite sex were male. That ratio has now reversed. The UK has experienced a 4400% increase in girls being referred for transitioning treatment. Autistic girls are hugely overrepresented in their numbers.

The tweets prompted star of the Harry Potter movies, Daniel Radcliffe, to issue a statement condemning her words.

Other stars of the movies weighed in as well.
