First J.K. Rowling, now Adele: As an American patriot it pains me to say this, but these British women just seem to understand what's at stake here better than we do:
Adele is being accused of transphobia for declaring at a woke gender-neutral awards show that she loves "being a woman."
The "Rolling in the Deep" singer made the remark at Tuesday's Brit Awards as she collected the prize for Artist of the Year, a newly created category merging the old Best Male and Best Female Artist awards.
"I understand why the name of this award has changed but I really love being a woman and being a female artist. I do!" she said to huge cheers.
Here's the brief speech; the unexpected thunderclap comes at the end:
What's best about it is it is so typically British in its understatement: it's calm, low-key, almost polite.
That sort of orderly ruthlessness is how the British controlled an empire for several centuries, after all!
Meanwhile, the woke (especially a bunch of weird men) were SUPER upset with Adele:
The transgender wars are creating some unlikely allies but we'll take them wherever we can get them!
