Some Highlights

“Last year, she came under fire for suggesting that transgender people erase "the lived reality of women globally.”’

“The Harry Potter author has said on several occasions that she opposes transgender activism“

And yet, on Twitter in June 2020, she 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.' Wouldn't marching be considered activism? It's amazing the shit journalists can get away with saying because most people are too lazy to fact check.

She’s never stated she’s against trans activism. She actually spoke really highly of TIMs and stated she believes they all deserve rights and the vast majority are just trying to live their lives. The only thing she spoke out against was female erasure. But of course to them being against female erasure is actively being anti trans. This so called journalist also completely misrepresented JKRs beliefs by stating JK said “trans people erase the lived reality of women”. She never said that. What she said was again that female erasure erases the lived reality of women. This self identified journalist is trying to make it sound like JKR hates trans people which isn’t true.

I know quite a few people who were (and still are) furious with her despite never actually reading her essay. Journalists like this are not helping. JKR should sue.

Yahoo must really want to be sued.

I wish they would get sued. I absolutely loathe yahoo. Yet, I read it because yahoo is a great source for trans nonsense.

I’d tell her to sue, it might infuriate them and claim she’s litigious, but I think they would shut the hell up. And the next generation of journalists, in 2-3 years, or even just next year, would have an entirely different view of her. Because people would have stopped trashing her.

I think there should be a really quick and efficient complaints board where people can complain about being misrepresented, libeled, and defamed by journalists or media sources. News outlets should then be required to put any apologies ordered by the board on their front page and once a person or company has a certain amount of complaints upheld against them they are fined big time. It's time to stop the lies.

In addition to the wild inaccuracies about JKR, it also erroneously says that Maya won her job back, which was not the point of the tribunal at all.

In fact, even if Maya does win her case of unfair dismissal against her employer in the future, she’s going to win money… not her previous job back. The court isn’t going to force her company to rehire her—that’s so obviously absurd.

Why does everything have to be a safe space? 🙄

[–] JenniferLiam 10 points (+10|-0)

Everything except women's safe spaces. When we say we feel unsafe, we're told that we're bigots.

Of course, yahoo closed the comments on on that article 🙄

Yahoo locked down my old email, I struggled for years to log back in and could never get the recovery password sent to my other email, and then I found out they deleted the account when I tried to make serious efforts to get it back.

Fuck that company.

JKR has (t*rf) fuck you money, and I am here for all of it. Thanks, sister!
