J.K. Rowling was again criticized by several celebrities after having published another series of transphobic tweets.
The author of Harry Potter recently made his views known, while tweeting about an article titled “Opinion: Creating a more equal post COVID-19 world for menstruating men.”
She wrote on Friday: “People who have their period. “I’m sure there was a word for these people. Someone is helping me. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud? ‘
The writer was quickly criticized by LGBTQ celebrities such as Jameela Jamil, Sarah Paulson and Jonathan Van Ness, among others.

The 54-year-old followed in a thread: “If the sex is not real, there is no attraction for the same sex. If the sex is not real, the lived reality of women in the world is erased.
“I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex takes a lot away from the opportunity to talk about their lives in a meaningful way. It’s not hatred to tell the truth. ”
She continued, “The idea that women like me, who have been empathetic towards trans people for decades, feel related because they are vulnerable in the same way as women – that is, , male violence – “hating” trans people because they think sex is real and has real consequences – is nonsense.
“I respect the right of every trans person to live in an authentic and comfortable way.
“I would walk with you if you were discriminated against because of your trans. At the same time, my life has been shaped by being a woman. I don’t think it’s odious to say it. “
Rowling had already made his point of view on the trans community known in December, which earned him the label of transexclusive radical feminist (TERF).
His most recent comments have been received by many fans and followers, as well as notable names like Jameela Jamil, Sarah Paulson, Jonathan Van Ness and more.
Jamil challenged her to put her money where her mouth is, tweeting her a GoFundMe link for black homeless trans women in Atlanta.
She wrote: “Hey JK when you pretend to support trans rights and this is a historic moment when we are discussing the overall impact of white supremacy on black people, please share some of your mega wealth of 650 million dollars with this charity. “
Paulson wrote, “Word. Good night and close @jk_rowling ‘while retweeting creative producer Ben O’Keefe.

Lives in danger: Jonathan Van Ness, who identifies himself as non-binary, replied to the author: “They are dying. We fight for blacks and trans people and you do that? (photo in February 2020)
He wrote, “This woman is a complete scum. Close the f *** up you transphobe f ***. You don’t know or love any trans person if you don’t even recognize their existence. Thank you for ruining the books of my childhood. Stop talking. We know you are a TERF. You don’t have to keep doing this. ”
Van Ness, who identifies as non-binary, responded to the author: “Trans women are women. Black trans people and non-black trans people experience discrimination every day. They die. We fight for blacks and trans people and you do that?
Tegan and Sara sent an ultimatum to their subscribers: “If you are a TERF and you follow us, please f *** off and no longer follow us.
Mara Wilson called Rowling further: “How did she get a victim complex about all of this?”
Anthony Rapp took the opportunity to promote GLAAD and some organizations that support black trans people.
He wrote, “Amplify that. Surprising and horrible that an extremely powerful and super rich white lady chose to double, triple and quadruple the #Trans community.
Mary Lambert replied to Rowling: ‘What is this fuck ??? It’s so shameful, @jk_rowling. Of all the hills on which to die, and for what reason? Trans women are women and they fight for their lives. When you push this trans exclusion program, you make their lives infinitely more difficult. Shame on you.’
A Rowling representative declined to comment when contacted by DailyMail.com.
It is not the first time that she has been criticized on the subject, liking a tweet from 2018 that qualified transgender women as “men in dresses”.
At the time, a spokesperson told the Sun that Rowling was “an awkward, middle-aged moment.”
She previously confirmed suspicions of her transphobic opinions in December, while showing her support for Maya Forstater, who lost legal action against her former employers after they fired her for transphobic comments.
Rowling tweeted: ‘Dress as you want. Call yourself whatever you want. Sleep with any consenting adult who has you. Live your best life in peace and security. But to force women to quit their jobs for declaring that sex is real? #IStandWithMaya #ThisIsNotADrill ‘
