J.K. Rowling Under Fire From Trans Community For Defending Science
Author J.K. Rowling took to the defense of a researcher who was let go from her job for asserting that humans can’t determine their biological sex. Now she’s under fire from the Trans community and liberals at large.
Rowling defended researcher Maya Forstater on Twitter shortly after she was let go.
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’s issue with the Forstater comes down to a judge’s ruling that her termination was fair. The judge stated that Forstater’s viewpoint was “absolutist” and excuses referring to a person “by the sex she considered appropriate even if it violates their dignity and/or creates an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment.”
But Rowling’s support of both Forstater and, oddly, factual science, is coming with a hefty price.
At first, Rowling’s tweeted, “What I am so surprised at is that smart people who I admire, who are absolutely pro-science in other areas, and champion human rights & womens rights are tying themselves in knots to avoid saying the truth that men cannot change into women (because that might hurt mens feelings).”
The Human Rights Campaign quickly lambasted Rowlings, tweeting, “Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Non-binary people are non-binary. CC: JK Rowling.”
But that’s far from the end of the nonsensical train of liberals furiously pursuing anti-science vindication.
hi. breaking my hiatus real quick just to say: fuck what your childhood heroes say. trans people are real. trans people deserve to be protected, recognized, supported, and loved. if that infringes on your idea of feminism, you’re not actually a feminist at all. you’re a bigot.

Yep, this is the world we live in. But it’s our own fault for allowing this to go on for as long as it did. Now we must clean up from the ashes.
