I find it funny that she has a team that does damage control for her social media interactions.

There's an official website full of people who fuss over Harry Potter canon and groan over Rowling's edits, I guess.

J.K. Rowling agrees with me.

I’m concerned about the huge explosion in young women wishing to transition and also about the increasing numbers who seem to be detransitioning (returning to their original sex), because they regret taking steps that have, in some cases, altered their bodies irrevocably, and taken away their fertility.Some say they decided to transition after realising they were same-sex attracted, and that transitioning was partly driven by homophobia, either in society or in their families.

Most people probably aren’t aware – I certainly wasn’t, until I started researching this issue properly – that ten years ago, the majority of people wanting to transition to the opposite sex were male. That ratio has now reversed. The UK has experienced a 4400% increase in girls being referred for transitioning treatment. Autistic girls are hugely overrepresented in their numbers.
...
The argument of many current trans activists is that if you don’t let a gender dysphoric teenager transition, they will kill themselves. In an article explaining why he resigned from the Tavistock (an NHS gender clinic in England) psychiatrist Marcus Evans stated that claims that children will kill themselves if not permitted to transition do not ‘align substantially with any robust data or studies in this area. Nor do they align with the cases I have encountered over decades as a psychotherapist.’
...
I’ve wondered whether, if I’d been born 30 years later, I too might have tried to transition. The allure of escaping womanhood would have been huge. I struggled with severe OCD as a teenager.
...
I’m also aware through extensive research that studies have consistently shown that between 60-90% of gender dysphoric teens will grow out of their dysphoria.
...
The current explosion of trans activism is urging a removal of almost all the robust systems through which candidates for sex reassignment were once required to pass.
...
So I want trans women to be safe. At the same time, I do not want to make natal girls and women less safe. [H]When you throw open the doors of bathrooms and changing rooms to any man who believes or feels he’s a woman...then you open the door to any and all men who wish to come inside.
That is the simple truth.
Reposting this well argued and intentioned essay. It figures none of you want to acknowledge it.

Skimmed it already, but it seemed like kind of a mess. Paraphrasing, "here's a list of horrible things that have happened to me, but I'm not looking for any sympathy." "I'm only interested in this because I'm writing a crime novel." "I have a vested interest in children and education."

The heart of it:
When you throw open the doors of bathrooms and changing rooms to any man who believes or feels he’s a woman – and, as I’ve said, gender confirmation certificates may now be granted without any need for surgery or hormones – then you open the door to any and all men who wish to come inside. That is the simple truth.
The absurdity of someone "deciding" to go transgender just so they can peep on your mother or niece. Once again, the whole linebackers in dresses boogeyman. Shored up with an abundance of meandering concern, like Harry Potter's plot holes were shored up with an abundance of excessively-descriptive world building (e: not so much shored up as wallpapered over).

it was her publishers that responded to that, i think, not a personal full-time team for social media.

and yes, having worked for publishers, that is precisely what publicity departments and PR agents exist for. publishers have a lot of money at stake when it comes to an author harpooning their own reputation for the world to see. especially if a book is forthcoming and in production, or on contract.

Yeah, that'd make a little more sense. In the sublink it calls them representatives and spokespersons. Sounds a bit more like that than community managers on harrypotter.com or whatever it is.

He looks like he has the demeanor of a James Bond villain. Why aren't they marching in step? Are they afraid of attracting a great sandworm?

So proud to be Belgian. The only nation with a special needs regiment. The marching could be better but just wait until you see the macaroni pictures these guys make!
Ouch.

'defence cadets', you see. belgium's real defense is known as the united kingdom and her fuckin allies. that'll be another mess we're sorting out.

We probably shouldn't be making fun of the special needs regiment. It's unbecoming.

Conservatives are very angry that gay people now have workplace protection.

Right wing sources have been really angry lately about a lot of things. The protest, CHAZ, and now this has kept them in a frenzy.

LGBT erasure needs to be stopped. Because of the homophobic Chinese and Russians, the relationship between Chandra and Nissa in MTG has been cancelled. I am so sick of having to placate the cultural deficiencies of Chinese consumers. As an ally of the LGBT community, I am disgusted that the relationship between these two been cancelled.

No. That is a modified Magic the Gathering card. Chandra is the pyromancer with red hair. Nissa is the elf. They should be in love but the Chinese do not like LGBT stuff in their country.

Funny how macbeth spends 35 pages excoriating Trans, then when his hateful ideology trickles into a game he plays, he is up in arms. Can't have it both ways, bigot!

Here I am defending a lesbian relationship and all you have are insults. Do you ever think I do care about the LGBT community? I would be very happy if there was LGBT representation in the form of at least one relationship between an Elf woman and a human woman.

seems like you fetishize lesbian relationships and use that as an end around to make yourself into some sort of advocate.

I disagree. You can have a gay male character and relationship too if it means Chandra and Nissa can be together.

And even if I did fetishize lesbians, why don't the Chinese and Russians? Why is their bigotry all encompassing?

I wonder if all of the people here who defend the trannies are going to come by and promote the idea of two full women dating.

what, as oppposed to two half-women dating? What kind of troll end game are you trying to move towards?

You cannot be half a woman. I am not trolling. I am increasing LGBTQ+ representation.

He's done it before in this thread. It's a small cycle. A lead-up to posting a screencap of Jame Gumb or a trannsexual misbehaving at a gamestop. I wonder what it'll be this time.
