J.K. Rowling refuses to cave to the woke mob that wants to erase woman in the name of transgender ideology.
This lady gets it. Orwell would be proud.
Then again, Rowling created a world in Harry Potter that showcases how authoritarianism and segregation occur in society. The very things she warned about by portraying the rise of the evil wizard Voldemort are now happening in our world today.
From the article Rowling shared:
Police have been criticised for saying they will record rapes by offenders with male genitalia as being committed by a woman if the attacker "identifies as a female".
Police Scotland said that they would log rapes as being carried out by a woman if the accused person insists, even if they have not legally changed gender.
How unbelievably insulting to victims. In the name of wokeness, police will stop referring to criminals as violent male predators if they wish to be called women.
We don't live in a serious civilization anymore!
Twitter went haywire at Rowling's words, coming out en masse to [checks notes] defend rapists.
It takes a lot of courage to speak the truth when it comes at the potential cost of your entire career.
Rowling might be a billionaire, but her refusal to bow to the woke has left her inundated with death threats and threatened with excommunication from "high-class" society.
Whether you like her books or not, Rowling has a keenly perceptive mind. Never forget that for the near entirety of the Harry Potter series, the good guys were portrayed as the bad guys by the media, politicians, and powerful families in the wizarding world.
So while people out there ironically think Rowling is like the Orwellian character Dolores Umbridge, who punished children for countering the Narrative™ —
—She is actually much more like another character, who was demonized to no end, but whose persistence in doing the right thing made all the difference!
