The Harry Potter author landed in hot water with the LGBT community last year after she questioned a new tendency of “erasing the concept of sex” by referring to “people who menstruate” instead of simply calling them women.
JK Rowling said “hundreds” of trans activists sent her death threats following her controversial comments about dangers women could face in public toilets coming from men who present themselves as self-identified women.
The Harry Potter author said that this exactly was the case as numerous “trans activists” had threatened to beat, kill, bomb and rape her because of her stance.
Rowling provoked a harsh backlash from some of her fans and the LGBT community last year after she mocked the Devex article about difficulties faced by “people who menstruate” during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?” she sarcastically noted on Twitter to immediately get slammed for “transphobia” for ignoring the fact that many transgender men can still menstruate.
“When you throw open the doors of bathrooms and changing rooms to any man who believes or feels he’s a woman – and, as I’ve said, gender confirmation certificates may now be granted without any need for surgery or hormones – then you open the door to any and all men who wish to come inside. That is the simple truth,” Rowling wrote.
