J.K. Rowling Shows How It's Done After Vicious Attacks From 'Tolerant' Trans Rights Activists


“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling has been under near-constant attack from transgender rights activists and other various online bullies after declaring her support in December 2019 for a British woman (Maya Forstater) who lost her job after old tweets surfaced where she stated biological men could not be women.

“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 tweeted at the time.

Despite the massive amount of pushback she received, Rowling was unapologetic about her stance, and maintained her position even in the midst of a second round of backlash 6 months later over more tweets she posted ripping militant trans rights advocates for trying to silence women. She also wrote a piece on her website a few days later thoughtfully explaining her position, noting that it had nothing to do with hating transgender men and women.

Here we are a year later, and Rowling continues to be under attack but remains unbowed. On Monday, the popular author posted a screengrab of a tweet from someone wishing death upon her, noting that the tweeter had “really only one place to go” considering that the other attacks against her so far have failed:

In another tweet, she talked about how she had received “hundreds” of other violent threats from the supposedly tolerant activists on the far left who, ironically, were proving her point:

The moral of the story? Don’t sit down and shut up. Keep speaking out:

To be sure, even if Rowling didn’t sell a single book after the initial uproar, she’d still be in a stellar position moneywise for the rest of her life without having to worry that getting canceled for speaking out was going to hurt her bottom line, so from that perspective, it’s easier for her to sit on her perch and say the things she does than it is for someone who’s not so well-positioned financially.

That said, no matter their station in life, the people who haven’t been cowed into silence on this issue understand that there’s a helluva a lot more than their livelihoods at stake if they don’t win this battle, which is why they keep fighting despite the threats.

As both Rowling and the outraged woman in the Wi Spa controversy reminded us, it’s imperative that we raise our voices and stand against the nonsense that hurts women and young girls every day it’s allowed to continue in locker rooms, dressing rooms, women’s shelters, and women’s sporting events. Because no matter what the courts decide in the future about women’s rights and those of transgender people, this battle will not and should not be over until women and young girls feel safe in gender-segregated facilities – and in their chosen sport – again.
