JK Rowling's tweets were not transphobic and I legitimately don't see how anyone could think they areJK ROWLING Submitted June 28, 2020, 11:31 a.m. by spam_risk
Just wanna start this off by saying JK Rowling wasn't being hateful, and that I actually agree with what she was saying. It's truly unfair how she is being canceled and threatened for daring to express her gender-critical views.
Whether or not you agree with what she said is a different story, but I think it's wildly irrational to claim she was being transphobic.
She outright said she knows and loves trans people, and believes that they deserve respect and happy lives (something along those lines)
JKR tried to write thoughtfully and compassionately in an effort to speak her mind without offending someone. And people are bashing her for it.
The whole twitter controversy just goes to show that people can get too easily offended, and anything remotely scientifically true or fact-based is labeled as hate speech and transphobic.
Sorry if this digressed into a mini rant. What I'm trying to say is actually summed up in a line from one of JK Rowling's tweets: "It isn't hate to speak the truth."
