J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved “Harry Potter” children’s books, scorched her woke critics on Twitter in a Sunday tweet, blasting several accounts for appearing to have copied and pasted tweets criticizing her.
Rowling shared, in her tweet, screenshots of two pairs of duplicate tweets attacking her. In each of the tweets, the person tweeting claimed to have a trans child who was greatly hurt by Rowling’s opinions on the trans issue.
One tweet, posted by @EGA_Kaaa and @MarkoWoat2, said, “My trans daughter used to love your books, but after you became a bigot she cried and asked me ‘daddy, why do people hate those who are different from them?’ I don’t know, baby, I don’t know.”
The other tweet, posted by @SSEpikal and @SoyzSoy3 said, “JK Rowing, i have a 12 year old trans daughter and she cries every time she reads one of your transphobic posts. She is a huge fan of Harry Potter, but but seeing the author of her favorite book series being so bigoted is heartbreaking. Please, J.K, make my daughter happy again.”
Rowling, mocking those woke critics and their made up stories, said, “My one-year-old son just looked up from Twitter and said, ‘Mummy, why have you made these very real children sad with your heinous yet unevidenced bigotry?’ Then he ran upstairs and burned all his Potter books. I was so damn ashamed I almost forgot the kid was imaginary.”

Rowling has long been an enemy of the transgender-focused left because of her refusal to go along with current gender orthodoxy. Her public stance against transgenderism began when she tweeted a link to an article that refused to say women and, commenting on it, said ”
“‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud”

She then followed up on that by pointing out the inconsistencies in the woke gender worldview, saying:
If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth.
The idea that women like me, who’ve been empathetic to trans people for decades, feeling kinship because they’re vulnerable in the same way as women – ie, to male violence – ‘hate’ trans people because they think sex is real and has lived consequences – is a nonsense.
I respect every trans person’s right to live any way that feels authentic and comfortable to them. I’d march with you if you were discriminated against on the basis of being trans. At the same time, my life has been shaped by being female. I do not believe it’s hateful to say so.
Since then, she’s continued to poke a thumb in the eye of the radical left, infuriating them with her takes on the transgender issue and movement, particularly when it crosses paths with feminism.
