There is perhaps nobody on earth who angers the transgender movement quite as much as J.K. Rowling. She’s a rock-ribbed liberal, she’s worth a billion dollars, her work is beloved by untold millions regardless of a concerted cancellation campaign, and she refuses to shut her mouth.
Trans activists have tried everything to silence her criticisms. There have been social media mobbings. Furious editorials. Solemn media scolds. Offers to re-educate her. Condemnation from LGBT groups. Banishment from events associated with the characters she created. Most recently, there have even been death threats, rape threats, and doxing.
But none of it has worked. She bides her time for a while and allows trans activists to believe that maybe she’s done distracting them from their campaign to remake society in their image. And then she comes back, reminding everyone of why the trans agenda is dangerous, encouraging liberals and feminists to draw a line and tell the radicals no. And again they are besides themselves with rage, tweeting bile and misogyny and insisting that the dudes in drag are just as much a woman as she is.
Rowling is not only continuing to speak out, she’s turning up the heat. On December 12, she tweeted out an article from the Times titled “’Absurdity’ of police logging rapists as women,” detailing an announcement by police in Scotland that they will record rapes by men — whom the Times referred to as “offenders with male genitalia” — as being perpetrated by a woman if the attacker “identifies as female.” The media has already been publishing absurd articles talking about female rapists attacking women featuring pictures of evil-looking, brawny men. Police forces are following suit.
Rowling’s caption to the article was from George Orwell’s War is Peace.
Freedom is Slavery.
Ignorance is Strength.
The Penised Individual Who Raped You Is a Woman.
