This just in: JKR controversially tweets her support of kicking puppies and hanging up the loo roll the wrong way! What will this evil woman do next!? /s

People don’t do any critical thinking. If they decided someone is evil, a TERF, whatever, then they’ll believe anything and everything that supports their view. Half of the people who say ‘jkr is transphobic/a terf’ haven’t even read the original post that started it or any of her tweets. They don’t know what she actually stands for. Just like the people who say Dave chapel le or any other comedian is transphobic haven’t even watched the whole specials.

I weed out genderspecials/tras by innocuously bringing up anything Harry Potter related and see if they can respond without an obligatory “Fuck jkr”

Funnily enough, it was everyone saying how transphobic and hateful she was that helped peak me. I finally looked into it and I'm just "that's it? she's the devil over stating things infants know like sex is real and can't be changed?".

this is clearly a bloke pretending to be JKR for laughs. I’m quite young but from my experience only British men in their 40-50s use the term “ bird” to mean woman. I’ve not met any women who uses that term even amongst women in their 40-50s lol .

It's also a very poor quality photoshop. First thing that jumps out is that there is too much white space between @jk_rowling and the text and after the text.

A quick investigation find this which appears to be the original tweet: https://twitter.com/jk_rowling/status/1541044356932583424

They cut the text and put in the above but had to hide that there were 3 more lines of text in the original with their dodgy photoshop skills.
