JK Rowling VINDICATED: LGBTQ campaigner admits there is 'NO evidence' Harry Potter author is transphobic
Rowling has attracted criticism from some groups for her views on gender identity, previously tweeting she has received “so many death threats I could paper the house with them”
An LGBTQ activist has applauded JK Rowling, telling her followers that they are “burning the wrong witch” in their attacks on the author.
Rowling has attracted criticism from some groups for her views on gender identity, previously tweeting she has received “so many death threats I could paper the house with them”.
LGBTQ activists frequently label her with the term TERF, which stands for trans-exclusionary radical feminist.
Now, EJ Rosetta said she unable to find any evidence during her research that the Harry Potter writer is transphobic.
The HuffPost columnist posted a series of tweets in which she explained how she believed JK Rowling is not an ‘intolerable transphobe’ but a defender of women’s rights.
She wrote: “Right, I'm done. 3 months ago, I was tasked with writing an article detailing '20 Transphobic JK Rowling Quotes We're Done With' After 12 weeks of reading her books, tweets, full essay and finding the context of these 'quotes', I've not found a single truly transphobic message.
“JK Rowling is not an ‘intolerable transphobe’, she’s a (talented) woman who could have sat back and been beloved forever, but looked around and paid attention as the intersection of trans rights and women’s rights has had understandable growing pains.
“In many cases, one groups rights are being sacrificed for the other, with the most vulnerable women often paying the price. Here in Britain, we always want to support both sides but realise that in some cases (like DV Shelters), that is impossible. And JK was paying attention.
“JK saw the loopholes being created and knew that women needed a voice. So instead of sitting back and wishing everyone well, said ‘It’s got to be me, hasn’t it?’.
“She did something terrifying and amazing and used her voice, I suspect knowing damn well what was to come. That’s bravery.
“3 months of dedicated research and I cannot find a single truly transphobic JK Rowling quote that stands up against the scrutiny of journalistic integrity.
“The abuse JK has endured is beyond forgiveness. Every death threat, rape threat and torrent of abuse, she has born with grace.
“Shame on those who have framed her under the guise of ‘reporting’ when you must know, deep down, you are just chucking out clickbait and stirring up hate.
“Shame on those who followed that propaganda without critical thought.
“You’re burning the wrong witch. I stand with JK Rowling.”
The stars of the Harry Potter films – Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint – are amongst those who have spoken in opposition to Rowling’s views on gender.
Rowling has said she was partly motivated to speak out about transgender issues because of her experience of domestic abuse and sexual assault.
She has strongly denied accusations of transphobia.
