Harry Potter Author Issues Warning To Politicians

In these contentious times that the world is experiencing, those who are pushing for change in cultural norms and economic systems – self-proclaimed progressives – tend to be in lockstep, unlike many traditionalists.

Through their concerted efforts, they have advanced gay marriage, the #metoo movement, and recently social justice causes.

One area though that the left has apparently overplayed their collective radical hand has been issues around transgenderism.

In response, one very famous feminist has been publicly challenging their views, getting flack for doing it, and now warning those throwing the bombs.

Harry Potter author JK Rowling sent a stern warning to politicians saying women are “outraged and angry” over the radical transgender lobby threatening their rights and safety.

Rowling warned politicians from Britain’s political parties that British women will no longer allow them to “threaten and intimidate them out of speaking publicly about their own rights”.


J.K. tweeted that women have been left “outraged and angry at the deaf ear turned to their well-founded concerns” about the dangers of radical transgender policy like the push to allow biological males to self-identify as women and access women only spaces, such as female changing rooms.

The one-time hero of the British left went on to call out the leader of the Labor Party, Sir Keir Starmer, and accuse him of “publicly misrepresenting equalities law, in yet another indication that the Labor Party can no longer be counted on to defend women’s rights.”

This accusation comes after Sir Keir, a former chief prosecutor, insisted last Friday that “trans women are women”, which he claimed was enshrined in the 2004 Gender Recognition Act and the 2010 Equality Act and was “the law in the United Kingdom” — which Rowling disputes.

The children’s author turned alleged “TERF” — trans-exclusionary radical feminist — also claimed that “women are organizing across party lines, and their resolve and their anger are growing.”

Rowling suggested that her motivation for speaking out on this topic came from the “innumerable gay people” that have contacted her as “like women, they — especially lesbians — are under attack for not wishing to be redefined and for refusing to use ideological language they find offensive.”

Rowling’s statement came in response to the news that Lisa Townsend, the elected Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey, was found by a local council panel to have breached the code of conduct of her office after supporting a tweet from Rowling that insisted that transgender rapists are not female.

The tweet that kicked off the firestorm was from the author who had mocked the Scottish police who had allowed a biologically male rapist with a penis to identify as female, with Rowling responding to the news with a reference from George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984.

War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. The Penised Individual Who Raped You Is a Woman”, Rowling said.

Townsend, referencing this tweet, triggered trans-activists to report her to the Surrey Council.

It’s not a ‘niche’ issue, it’s not ‘hysterical’ of women to be taking to the streets about it. We will not accept this gaslighting from men who keep telling us they are women, or from those who enable them. #IStandWithJKRowling,” Townsend had said.

One of the complainers was a local Conservative MP, Crispin Blunt, also the chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on LGBT+ rights.

Blunt told Surrey Council that he believed Townsend, also of the Conservative Party, had “propagate[d] dangerous myths”.

Townsend, referencing the verdict, said it was “ridiculous that a middle-aged male MP should try to stop me speaking up for women’s rights.”

If you’re a male who prefers to wear dresses, grow your hair long and you’d rather wear make-up, that’s great. You go for it, but that doesn’t make you a woman. I’ve said it before and I’ll go on saying it. It’s how an overwhelming number of my constituents feel,” Townsend insisted.

Commissioner Townsend has reported that she has received 15 death threats from extremists.

So much for tolerance from the left?

Considering that the left is calling for the punishment of those who are fighting back against radicals, suing them for disputing false medial claims being advanced by men and women struggling with gender dysphoria, it’s enough to lead mentally healthy individuals to move to a faraway land, away from this trans insanity.
