JK Rowling’s words have always caused a global stir. But this time, it’s for entirely different reasons. She was criticized on social media for defending biological sex in a tweet. If she continues to engage in such “wrongthink”, then under proposed changes to the law, she could face imprisonment. JK Rowling tweeted criticism of the use of the phrase “people who menstruate” instead of “women”.
She then expanded her position, writing:
“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.”
