J.K. Rowling had to return civil rights award

J.K. Rowling had to return civil rights award
Because she's transphobic

Quote:Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling recently returned her Ripple of Hope award to the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights non-profit for social justice while defending herself against accusations of transphobia after Kerry Kennedy, president of the organization, expressed “profound disappointment” over Rowling’s anti-trans views.

I have not paid too much attention to what has been said about this, honestly. Yet if this is her opinion about trans people, then of course she's in the wrong. Also, if this is her personal opinion, then clearly the fame has gone to her head and made her crazy.

Or she just doesn't agree with your views.



Amazing that such "inclusive people" are so offended by someone with a differing opinion.

Hey, even the KKK is entitled to an opinion. But the smart ones try not to destroy themselves professionally in the process.

I think gender dysphoria is caused by sexist gender role stereotypes and that transsexualism is always a mistake and also perpetuates and strengthens those sexist gender role stereotypes. I hold no ill will toward any trans person whatsoever and merely disapprove of the "sin," not the "sinner" who has been mislead and let down by society in general, resulting in trans identity type errors. Transphobia is prejudice against trans PEOPLE and so that ain't me, nor fabulous lady JK Rowling. 2c

I doubt very much this will hurt her career in the least.


She is worth somewhere around 1 billion dollars.

You think she gives a shit what we think of her?

She did, until the money and fame went to her head. After all, she was homeless when she conceived of Harry Potter.

That's the problem with the one percent, as altruistic as they claim to be they never truly are.
