Have you read this?
JK Rowling Writes About Her Reasons For Speaking Out on Sex and Gender Issues
Like, actually read it?
I'm being serious--
Did you read someone else's opinion on Twitter
Before you made your own...?
Really actually read all 12 pages
Then join me for this episode.
She has become radicalized in the last few years, all because of twitter!
She quotes all of the biggest features of TERF ideology, and stirs fear over bathrooms.
She says things most all people consider to be transphobic.
She is clearly being a provocateur, but why? Perhaps maybe because she has been harrassed nonstop for her limited understanding of sex and gender?
She has had to self-educate now, and is only listening to TERF's about gender politics. She is responsible for her beliefs and her decision to quote famous TERF writers and leaders. Trans people are also responsible for how they have reacted to her twitter over the years. She has become a target for abuse, and I don't want to be associated with that sort of "activism".
Perhaps saddest of all, is that JK Rowling refers to all of her online abuse as "trans activism". I do not advocate for such speech.
SADDER THAN THAT is how many fans I have lost because I don't want to villainize her further than she has villainized herself! It is not enough for me to simply disagree with JK Rowling, I must degrade her--otherwise I'm not really a trans advocate!
What fucked up version of the twilight zone am I living in???
How am I living such a beautiful life surrounded by feminist trans people, but online--it's a different universe?
here is the gender recognition bill in scotland that Rowling is so terrified of. I don't understand her fears, as the legislation is still strict--still imposes limitations on transition. None of her fears in her treatise are verifiable.
