A literal pedo is defending the trannies

JK Rowling keeps tweeting and we keep wondering why​

Rowling seems to imagine a world in which trans women are privileged predators working with a compliant police force to assault innocent cis women. In fact, trans women are a small, marginalized, vulnerable minority, who face terrifying rates of sexual violence from the police who are supposed to help them


Harry Potter author J K Rowling responded in strong terms today to comments by Police Scotland about their approach to gender identity. Police Scotland said that the police would respect the gender self-identification of people accused of sexual assault, and a number of media outlets published details. Rowling tweeted in response to the news story: “War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. The Penised Individual Who Raped You Is a Woman.”

Rowling has an established history of tweeting “gender-critical” views which many view as transphobic. In particular, she has embraced longstanding stereotypes which frame trans women as perpetrators of violence and especially of sexual violence. Her latest novel features a serial killer who dresses in women’s clothing, continuing the transphobic tradition of such films as Psycho, Dressed to Kill, and Silence of the Lambs. She’s also argued that trans women should not be allowed in women’s bathrooms because they are not really women and are therefore a danger to cis women.

There are no recorded cases of trans women actually assaulting anyone in bathrooms in the US. Other claims about supposedly large numbers of trans women predators are similarly flimsy. However, there is solid evidence that trans women are disproportionately victims of sexual violence. A 2015 survey of trans respondents found that 47 percent reported they had been sexually assaulted. And queer youth, including trans youth, are more than twice as likely to experience homelessness as their cisgender heterosexual peers. Girls who experience homelessness are twice as likely to have experienced sexual assault.

Since trans people have high rates of assault, you’d hope they’d be able to turn to the police. However, 57 percent of trans and nonbinary people say they are uncomfortable going to the police for help — and no wonder, since 58 percent of trans and nonbinary people who dealt with law enforcement reported that they were mistreated. That mistreatment included everything from misgendering to verbal insults and even sexual assault.

Rowling — through her tweets, her advocacy and her fiction — seems to imagine a world in which trans women are privileged predators working with a compliant police force to assault innocent cis women. In fact, trans women are a small, marginalized, vulnerable minority, who face terrifying rates of sexual violence from, among others, the police who are supposed to help them.
It’s easy to generate outrage by claiming the police are too sympathetic towards trans women accused of assault. But it makes no sense to encourage police to embrace bigotry against marginalized people accused of crimes. If a police captain said that their officers were not allowed to use racial slurs against Jewish or Black people accused of violence, would Rowling object? I doubt it. Should police be encouraged to use misogynist slurs against women, cis or trans, who are accused of crimes? Of course not.

People accused of crimes are presumed innocent, and encouraging police to dehumanize and abuse suspects is likely to result in brutality and injustice. More, demanding that police refuse to recognize trans women as women is going to affect how police interact with trans women victims. And trans women victims are a group that police already often treat with contempt and cruelty, according to trans women who have interacted with them.

It’s my belief that if Rowling really wanted to advocate for victims of violence, she would advocate for trans women, who are disproportionately victims; and if she wanted to advocate for victims of violence, she would want a police force that respects marginalized people, not one that embraces bigotry. “Please stop causing pain,” one Twitter user begged her after her tweet today. But it seems clear at this point that that is not her main priority.

Who is this man you may ask?
He is a team-member over at prostasia.org

In their ranks you will find LGBQ, and T's....and MAPS.
And Pedos. People attempting to normalize this shit.

So yeah, at this point J.K. Rowling is having to deal with the MSM giving loud voices to raving pro-pedo (or minor attracted people as they it) lunatics, trying to shut her up cause she supports women's rights.

Did you know his child is trans?

I said this in another thread today, but when Rowling wrote a psychotic thot (Bellatrix) getting patrolled by a tradwife (Ron's mom) and part of Voldemort's evil being caused by a relationship based only on sex in her stories...it was, dare I say it, pretty based.

Harry Potter has basically replaced traditional religion for a lot of millennials, most of which are woke, so her beginning to espouse stuff like this is glorious to watch. All the death threats she get won't change her mind and will probably make her more firm in her beliefs. Seriously, people caring more about the identity of the rapist than the victim? She is experiencing the biggest bruh moment of her life right now. Plus, there's nothing they can do to her - she's one of the wealthiest people in the entire world AND her content is continually insanely popular.

So they pretend that a book series written by a woman was written by a man, because she says that men in dresses are not women?
It's just a massive cope spun into a forced meme because leftoids cannot separate the art from the author in a healthy manner. They usually don't even fucking try because 'everything is political' is a way of life for them.

The breathless language these articles use to describe this utterly insignificant non-event always amazes me. "[Rowling] has been embroiled in multiple rows." lolwut? "Embroiled?" She makes a post and walks away to enjoy a life of immense luxury as a self-made absurdly wealthy person and all the screeching in the world can never take that away from her.

She gives zero fucks. That's not being "embroiled." Being embroiled or "in a row" requires participation, which she's not giving them. People foaming at the mouth about it and chumming the waters they infest with their own blood through infighting is highly entertaining but has absolutely no impact on her life whatsoever. It's also a non-issue for the Harry Potter "brand" -- they're making a new MMO with it that people are eagerly anticipating and HP-branded stuff at theme parks remains among the busiest and most popular attractions in the entire park.

They simply can't touch her. That's what makes the impotent rage so delicious.

From how KiwiFarms is reacting, you'd think the same.
You spelled "hope" wrong.

Making J.K. Rowling into some moral arbiter was the first mistake. How is she getting her career destroyed over rational thinking like “men“ abusing the justice system to disguise themselves as female to get lenient sentences?

If ISIS we’re still around and doing this instead of “trans”, I doubt they’d be coming at Rowling‘s neck like this.

This seems way to coordinated to be taken this seriously.

She does care though. If she didn't she'd keep her mouth shut like so many of her ilk have obviously done over this kind of shit. Rowling cares deeply about this gender issue and people despise her for it, including many of the very women she thinks she's fighting for. It's clearly getting under her skin and as much as I'd love for Rowling to come out on top here this kind of behavior is a slippery slope. She went from posting a very well written essay on gender to passive-aggressive twitter sniping in a little over a year. And every time she does something like this her name gets a little smaller on all that HP merch and another one of the people she worked with for years publicly denounces her bigotry. Sure JKs wealth will keep her physically comfortable, but I don't think twitter trans activists are the only ones filled with impotent rage. American-style social justice is overrunning terf island, and apparently there's nothing JK Rowling can do about it.

She isn't. This "row" has had no impact on her career whatsoever. HP still makes billions and she still receives monstrously huge royalties from it. And you'll notice her post-HP books, including her latest, had no problem finding a publisher. She's a golden goose and money screams much louder to many businesses than wokeness does. This is what enrages these idiots so much. They can't touch her or her legacy (good fucking luck tearing down HP at this point). Precious few people even know about this stupidity and far fewer give a shit, but if that tiny group actually starts making inroads at "canceling" HP they'll be pissing off millions of loyal consoomers. I'd rather walk through Compton in a "Blue Lives Matter" t-shirt than be the guy that has to close off the HP rides at Universal with an angry mob looking on in disgust.

I hate the term "row" so fucking much, it's the worst of all angloid retard slang. The only good term angloids ever coined was cunt. The only good thing JK Rowling ever did was create the environment from which the original Harry Potter movie soundtrack was made, outside of that the series is shit.

Quidditch to change name, citing J.K. Rowling's 'anti-trans positions'​


Real-life quidditch, inspired by the magical game in "Harry Potter," is changing its name, citing author J.K. Rowling's "anti-trans positions in recent years."

US Quidditch and Major League Quidditch announced in a joint news release Wednesday that they will conduct a series of surveys over the next few months to decide on a new name for the sport, which resembles soccer and field hockey, but as a contact sport with broomsticks.

“For the last year or so, both leagues have been quietly collecting research to prepare for the move and been in extensive discussions with each other and trademark lawyers regarding how we can work together to make the name change as seamless as possible,” Major League Quidditch Commissioner Amanda Dallas said in the release.

The leagues say there are a few reasons for the name change. Among them is that the name "quidditch" is trademarked by Warner Bros., which produced the "Harry Potter" movies, and as a result the sport's expansion has been limited in its sponsorship and broadcast opportunities.

The name change is also part of an effort by the leagues to "distance themselves from the works of J.K. Rowling," according to the statement, "who has increasingly come under scrutiny for her anti-trans positions in recent years."

Rowling has faced criticism for her views on the transgender community, which some have called transphobic. She first made headlines for her views in 2019, when she publicly supported Maya Forstater, a British tax specialist who was fired over tweets that were deemed to be anti-trans.

Then, in 2020, she mocked a headline that used the phrase "people who menstruate," which trans advocates noted is meant to be inclusive of trans men and nonbinary people who still have periods.

Just a few days later, she doubled down on her views in a nearly 4,000-word blog post that some critics on Twitter called a "transphobic manifesto," in which she asked whether a “contagion” fueled by social media has led to the rise in the number of young people coming out as transgender.

In the blog post, she also revealed that she is a survivor of domestic abuse and assault, and that as a result of that trauma, she is “deeply concerned about the consequences of the current trans activism.”

“So I want trans women to be safe. At the same time, I do not want to make natal girls and women less safe. 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,” she wrote, using a talking point that advocates say is common among anti-trans or "gender critical" groups.

A 2018 study by the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law found that there is no evidence that letting transgender people use restrooms and other public facilities that align with their gender identity increases safety risks.

Since Rowling published the blog post last year, several actors who starred in the "Harry Potter" films have condemned her views, including Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter; Emma Watson, who portrayed Hermione Granger; and Eddie Redmayne, who starred in the "Fantastic Beasts" films.

US Quidditch and Major League Quidditch also voiced their support for trans people and diversity, saying the sport has "developed a reputation as one of the most progressive sports in the world on gender equality and inclusivity, in part thanks to its gender maximum rule, which stipulates that a team may not have more than four players of the same gender on the field at a time."

The International Quidditch Association, the sport's governing body, also lists inclusivity on its website as one of the sport's values.

"As a community we want our sport to be inclusive of people of different ethnicities, cultural backgrounds, ages, languages, genders, sexual orientations," the website states. "A key demonstration of this is the Gender Rule in quidditch, whereby players are able to play as the gender that they identify as including non-binary genders."

Alex Benepe, one of the founders of real-life quidditch, said he is "thrilled that USQ and MLQ are moving in this direction."

"Big changes like this don’t come without risk, but I’ve been a strong advocate for making this move for a long time," he said, according to the leagues' statement. "The sport needs its own space without limits on its growth potential and changing the name is crucial to achieving that."

In "Harry Potter," quidditch players fly around on broomsticks and try to score points by throwing balls through the opposing team's goals, which are a set of three rings. Harry Potter, whose position is seeker, is tasked with catching the golden snitch — a small, flying ball that is "wicked fast and damn near impossible to see," as one character described it in the 2001 movie "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."

Benepe and Xander Manshel brought it into the real world in 2005 at Middlebury College in Vermont. In their version, players hold sticks or real brooms between their legs, and, as one player explained to NPR in 2015, the golden snitch is "velcroed to the back" of the "snitch runner," and this player must elude the seekers.

There are now more than 450 teams worldwide in more than 30 countries, according to US Quidditch and the International Quidditch Association. It's reportedly "one of the few mixed-gender full contact sports," according to the association.

US Quidditch and Major League Quidditch said they will be surveying stakeholders regarding the name change until the end of January.
