J.K. Rowling slams trans rights activist for fantasy of violent deaths of gender-critical feminists

Another day, another new term in today’s brave new world. Does the term ‘gender-critical feminists’ mean anything to you? I had to look it up. According to Wikipedia, gender-critical feminism is “critical of concepts of gender identity and transgender rights, holding that biological sex characteristics are an immutable determination of gender or supersede the importance of gender identity: in other words that trans women are not meaningfully women, and trans men are not men.” Are we clear about that now? Geez.

It’s hard to keep up, isn’t it? Maybe it’s just me but it’s hard to believe that women speaking up for other women is so controversial. Why should a very, very small minority of people impose their beliefs on the rest of the population and make demands that society change to accommodate them? That is what is happening with transgenderism. Take, or instance, the treatment of J.K. Rowling. She is an outspoken critic of the aggressive attempts to normalize transgenderism. She stands up for women and against the cancellation of women, such as in sports where trans women are allowed to compete with biological women. It’s unfair, plain and simple. Women deserve to have their own competition.

J.K. Rowling called out a trans activist for tweets he posted on his account. His account is now deactivated. Coward. The Daily Mail reports that the tweets were directed at those who were planning the Glasgow Let Women Speak Rally.

The Tweets, from the now deactivated account, described a car hitting activists attending the rally and watching them ‘exploding like bin bags full of baked beans’ on a windshield.

It appeared to threaten those planning on attending the Glasgow Let Women Speak Rally, organised by Kellie-Jay Keen’s campaign group Standing for Women.

Ms Keen, who is also known as Posie Parker, campaigns for sex-based rights and the protections of the word ‘women’.

And, Rowling is calling out politicians who go along with the transgender agenda.

Then she notes that the man deactivated his Twitter account.

The whole hullabaloo is over a rally schedule to take place on Glasgow Green on February 5. It is being held in response to the Scottish government’s attempt to push through a controversial bill, the Gender Recognition Reform bill. If passed, the bill would lower the age for applications for a gender recognition certificate to 16. It would remove the need for a medical diagnosis of dysphoria. Fortunately, the UK government weighed in last week and vetoed Nicola Sturgeon’s plans to overhaul Scotland’s gender recognition laws. A former supreme court judge said the chances of the UK government’s veto being overhauled are extremely low.

A politician who has been campaigning with Rowling for the protection of female-only spaces was heckled by her own party last week. She declared her support for Westminster’s veto of the bill from passing. Since then, she has received online threats. Scotland police officers are investigating the threats.

Meanwhile, in a bit of a surprise move, a Hollywood actor has come out in support of Rowling. Actor Brian Cox, most recently of Succession fame, spoke up for Rowling’s right to criticize what she sees as wrong.

“I don’t like the way she’s been treated, actually. I think she’s entitled to her opinion, she’s entitled to say what she feels,” the 76-year-old Succession star said over the weekend on British talk show Sunday With Laura Kuenssberg, per a Metro video. “As a woman, she’s very much entitled to say what she feels about her own body. There’s nobody better to say that, as a woman. So, I do feel that people have been a bit high and mighty about their own attitude toward J.K. Rowling.”

Good for him. A couple of other well-know actors have been vocal in their support of Rowling. Cox is the latest one bold enough to say something about the abuse Rowling receives for her opinions.

Despite Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe and organizations like GLAAD voicing opposition to Rowling’s comments, stars like Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes, both veterans of the Harry Potter franchise, have supported her right to express her opinion.

“J.K. Rowling has written these great books about empowerment, about young children finding themselves as human beings. It’s about how you become a better, stronger, more morally centered human being,” Fiennes said in a New York Times interview last year. “The verbal abuse directed at her is disgusting, it’s appalling. I mean, I can understand a viewpoint that might be angry at what she says about women. But it’s not some obscene, über-right-wing fascist. It’s just a woman saying, ‘I’m a woman and I feel I’m a woman and I want to be able to say that I’m a woman.’ And I understand where she’s coming from. Even though I’m not a woman.”

It’s good to see that some are willing to push back against the radical transgender agenda.
