J.K. Rowling Tweets About Biological Sex–Leftists Attack And ‘Cancel’ Her (Again)

Written by K. Walker on June 8, 2020

The beloved author of the Harry Potter series isn’t so beloved after these tweets!

It’s ironic that the woke leftists who seem to have only ever read the Harry Potter series and The Handmaid’s Tale are turning against one of their own. J.K. Rowling has angered the woke brigade by tweeting about biological sex. Again.

Now they’re trying to cancel her. Again.

Rowling has done this before. Back in December, she came to the defense of Maya Forstater, a woman who was fired for opposing “self-identification” laws in the United Kingdom that completely ignored biological sex.

ClashDaily covered Rowling’s position and the bizarre denial of biological sex here:

Rowling is not backing down, however.

The author known for “retconning” wokeism into her Harry Potter books (which often make no sense) is getting attacked by her own fans. Rowling, after publishing all of her books, stated that Professor Dumbledore was gay, Hermione was actually black, and Nagani the snake was a cursed Asian woman. At the time, many Harry Potter fans cheered these “improvements” to the books by including diversity; even including a gay professor– and the most beloved one, to boot!

But at the core, Rowling is a feminist.

She seemed a bit upset by the utterly dehumanizing phrase “people who menstruate” as the new “woke” term for women.

The very same people who advocate for transgender rights don’t realize that there are other rights in conflict–those of biological women and those of the “LGB” in the “LGBT” community. They are very concerned about “erasing” trans people but fail to realize that by allowing simple self-id redefines “men” and “women” from something concrete to something malleable that essentially means nothing. What that does is “erase” women.

Rowling posted a short Twitter thread about biological sex–and she’s 100% correct. She wrote:

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. The idea that women like me, who’ve been empathetic to trans people for decades, feeling kinship because they’re vulnerable in the same way as women – ie, to male violence – ‘hate’ trans people because they think sex is real and has lived consequences – is a nonsense. I respect every trans person’s right to live any way that feels authentic and comfortable to them. I’d march with you if you were discriminated against on the basis of being trans. At the same time, my life has been shaped by being female. I do not believe it’s hateful to say so.

She’s just posting facts there, as well as her own “lived experience” which is often touted as the standard for truth in woke circles.

Rowling later posted a link to an article about a lesbian who has been attacked from the LGBT community for…being a lesbian.

But the leftists were out in force.

This first example is a doozie–“No one is saying that ‘womxn’ are being erased” while censoring the word woman. That’s literally erasing it, Maddy.

It only gets better (worse?) from there.

This guy who writes for Medium, went off on a looooong thread of twisting himself into knots to say that he’s a gay man, but same-sex attraction is B.S.

Curious how that works? Me too…

Do go on…

Then, he goes straight for the canceling.

 

Oh, ok, dude.

He’s the kind of guy that cannot separate the art from the artist and wants to project today’s values onto yesterday’s work.

It’s important to be able to see where we were as a culture and where we are going. For example, all the outrage over Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn calling the runaway slave the “N” word discounts that they became friends. It was the writing of a man who started his life in a slave-holding family, but was moved to change positions later in life and became a staunch abolitionist. 

What will be an outrageous view in the future? We don’t know.

Will Aditya Mukerjee be canceled in the future and have his writing erased from the annals of history for his “wrongthink” about what being gay means? Perhaps. Only time will tell.
