JK Rowling posts a new set of tweets about the trans community


Harry Potter the author, JK Rowling, addresses the trans community once again.After facing a series of tweets in early June that were described as anti-trans, the author again expresses his point of view.

“I largely ignored the fake tweets that were attributed to me and to RTed. I ignored child tweeted porn on a thread about their art. I ignored the death and rape threats. I’m not going to ignore that, ”said Rowling in the first of an 11-tweet thread.

“When you lie about what I believe to be drugs for mental health and when you distort the point of view of a trans woman for whom I only feel admiration and solidarity, you cross a line”, a she said.

“I wrote and talked about my own mental health issues, including OCD, depression and anxiety. I did this recently in my “TERF Wars” essay. I have taken antidepressants in the past and they have helped me, ”said Rowling. “Many health care professionals are concerned that young people struggling with their mental health will be bypassed to hormones and surgery when this may not be in their best interest.”

“Many, myself included, think that we are following a new type of conversion therapy for young homosexuals, who are put on a permanent medicalization path which could lead to the loss of their fertility and / or their full sexual function”, said Rowling. .

“As I have said many times, transition may be the answer for some. For others, this will not be the case – witness the stories of the transposers. “The system sees surgery as the easy solution for girls who do not comply,” she added.

“Sophie is a trans woman and a true feminist ally. She argued that antidepressants had been over-prescribed for adolescents in the past, with serious consequences. “

“The long-term health risks of transsexual hormones are now monitored over a long period. These side effects are often downplayed or denied by trans activists, “said Rowling, while noting a study that stated that” off-label use of puberty blockers in those under 18 as a “live experience not regulated for children ”. “

Rowling concluded by writing, “None of this can confuse you or upset your belief in your own justice. But if that’s the case, I can’t pretend that I care a lot about your bad opinion of me.
