    The [BEEP] being piled onto JK Rowling is despicable. This woman is a genius, and created an entire universe that improved the lives of millions - she is not transphobic. Her stance is that gender does not equate to sex, and she is 100% correct. I'm not even a Harry Potter fan and I think the abuse this woman is receiving is asinine.

    The ultra woke just need to push their delusional realities to virtue signal, and then everyone decides to pile on because it has become the trendy thing.

    Eh, I'll try and make an explanation for why this happening in the UK, its not all to do with the "ultra-woke", dismissive to suggest it is.

    There is a lot of tension at the moment in the UK with regards to Transphobia, Trans issue - particularly when it comes to treatment issues (been curtailed here in recent years, is becoming more and more difficult to get any sort of treatment, wait times are insanely long - it's not a case of anyone should be able to change there ID whenever they want, which was never the case). Add in the fact that the current ruling party is spending a lot of time stoking a culture war, as it has decided to go the populism route, thinking that will win it elections. When I do refer Transphobia in the UK here - I do refer to genuine transphobia here. The kind where people end up being attacked on the street.

    I have little sympathy for her after joining in on these culture wars, and turning an issue which prior to a few years back, no-one really cared much about, into a major issue. These culture wars are tearing the country apart, and it needs to stop. Instead we have people such as JK Rowling - who has a massive reach - adding fuel to the fire.

    To be clear, I don't agree with much of JK Rowling stance on transgender people. I don't think more rights given to transwomen erodes the rights of ciswomen.

    But threatening, doxxing, and attacking a woman - someone who has been through domestic abuse and poverty and trauma because of men... I don't give a flying fck what kind of moral high ground you think you have, you don't get to fucking do that and claim superiority. And it is what this hivemind mob is doing, and then justifying it because of this warped virtue signaling. Look into your own abyss.

    I also stand by my comment on the ultra woke. There is no basis in reality for these people.

    Joanne has my full support. She is trying to look out for women and children.

    Condone? No. Sympathize? Not really. Am I doing it? Absolutley not. But is like the person who stuck his hand in a bee hive and then got stung.

    She was, as many others here have done - some others public figures in the UK, some in government, but unheard of outside the UK - happy to weigh in on a culture war and engaging in a moral panic. A lot of the things that those who have said similar views here have said are entirely devoid of reality - including some of what she has said, not to mention the inflamatory nature of some of her tweets a few years back. Men identifying as women in order to get into a womens prison because they once said they were a women online? Please. That does not happen, none of the "new plans" will allow to happen. Insisting that there is a "Trans lobby" in government or the media? Does not exist, except in there own minds. 5 years olds who once wore a dress being given hormones on a mass scale? Also not a thing. But these narratives are causing real harm here.

    May be the ultra-woke North-Americans doing it, and the ultra woke are nuts world round - but the issues go far deeper and further in the UK, far beyond woke or not - and has been going on a lot longer, is not just a JK issue, there are others - to the point that the UK is now listed alongside Russia and Turkey on the Council of Europes "not friendly for the LGBT people" list, all as a result of this one issue. For a lot in this moral panic group, they panic at the sign of any sort of easement - even if it reducing the fee to change genders down from hundreds, or removing what is essential a bureaucractic nightmare and a degrading process in order to do so.

    And it is fairly frustrating that Non-Britons on all sides of the debate have decided to weigh in on the issues here (and is not just this issue), whilst missing a lot of the context behind it, and assuming that what goes in there own countries is the same here. Which doesn't particularly help when it actually comes to resolving those issues.

    It is simple really. Some people should just stay quiet on very sensitive issues. There is no need for them to get involved. This is not her first time either. She has said other stuff in the past. By now she should know to keep quiet. That it will land her in deep water. She can only blame herself for her own views.

    Oh, what she was tweeting about were the new rules in Scotland surrounding rape. Is simple. You rape a person you get done for it. But if you are trans gender and see yourself as a female, the police and courts will also see you as a female. But your sentence for the rape will be the exact same. That is what pissed JK off. If they have a penis and rape a person they are males. Thus treat them as males. Was like she assumed they would get a lesser sentence if they were treated as females. Thus she jumped to conclusions without knowing or wanting to know the full facts. Which a lot of people do. Which lands them deep in it.
