A proud feminist who stands her ground.

I applaud her.

Good for her! Keep speaking the truth JK!

This is a good example of how radical SJW will try to destroy you if you don’t agree to their ideology.

Integrity and refusal kneel before the mob.

Good on her! Love it!

Trans hatred is a real thing. At least 18 trans people killed in the US, alone, this year.

331 murdered around the world last year.

Influential voices should know better than to participate in the hatred.

LGBT and here to stay.

Trans hatred is a real thing. At least 18 trans people killed in the US, alone, this year.

And violence against women is a real thing as well, with victims in the millions and it's most often perpetrated by men against women.

Rowling is merely trying to protect women from men and she's being attacked by men.

She's a strong women for standing up to these bully men.

She's a strong women for standing up to these bully men.

She's ensuring more LGBT people will be beaten, bullied and even killed. Because it feeds the narrative that trans women are sexual predators and killers.

Just like the narrative that had gay and bisexual people down as paedophiles and killers.

There is no doubt that all orientations have predators in their midsts.

But there's also no doubt that people who refuse to recognise trans people and dismiss the violence against them have a definite agenda.

Da?

This is correct and she got trashed for it because on the things that really annoyed her was the fact to the reference that men don't menstruate and the Trans community doesn't want to make that clear distinction when there is one. It doesn't matter how you personally feel about yourself or what you want to be or feel like what you are, the only facts are, there are 2 sexes and that men and women.

Weird given you posted this, which is disparaging feminism:

Aug. 25  08:02 am JSTPosted in: Young people losing interest in sex, but why?  See in context

This is the backlash to the feminist movement.

Not only are men shunning marriage but their shunning physical contact with woman.

And women are ending up lonely wondering where all the men are.

Seems you’re just stirring the pot.

That doesn't really fit with what she has said.

"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."

Not weird, true. Has nothing to do with Men thinking and wanting to the world to accept them as women when they aren't. 

Seems you’re just stirring the pot.

No because unlike liberals and the PC mob, I know the difference between men and women, liberals think they can create a new sex out of thin air.

In a series of tweets in June, Rowling said she supported trans rights but did not believe in “erasing” the concept of biological sex.

It seems trans supporters demand 100% adherence to the ideological script.

So, let me get this straight. The correct belief now is that there are basically two races, black or white, with no in between, but there are limitless genders. Have I got that right?

There are 15,000 - 20,000 murders a year in the US, and 18 is 0.12% of the lower of those figures. So statistically speaking, not being trans makes it 833x more likely you'll get murdered.

Seems more like people hatred in general is a real thing.

I actually agree with you on this issue to a certain extent.

I don’t understand why we are expected to accept trans people for the sex they feel and act they are when we aren’t expected to respect white people who feel black. Rachel Dolezal was cancelled because she felt and acted black.

Exactly! Nobody (I know of) is defending the murders of these 18 people, but those murders are no more terrible than the other 20,000. All stats need to be looked at objectively. Too often, only a select part of the information is used to present a skewed perspective to support an agenda.

That statement is really misleading because Rachel Dolezal did a lot more than feeling and acting "Black" (Whatever that means......)!

Yes, she represented herself as black.

Yes, she represented herself as black.

She also committed fraud and theft under the guise of representing herself as "Black".

The trans activists have really done a good brainwashing job on the general public so it's good that public figures like Rowling continue to stand up for the truth.
