The author of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling is facing an intense backlash online because he repeats that biological sex is real. Comments that many now consider hateful and "transphobic".

In a thread from Tweets on Saturday, the author, who previously expressed similar feelings online, said that talking about biological sex is not hateful and that being female is profound.

"If sex is not real, there is no same-sex attraction. If sex is not real, the lived reality of women worldwide will be erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex eliminates the ability of many to. It is no hate to tell the truth, "said Rowling.

"The idea that women like me, who have been sensitive to trans people for decades and feel related because they are just as vulnerable as women – ie towards male violence – hate trans people because they think sex is real and has consequences lived – is nonsense.

"I respect the right of every transperson to live in a way that feels authentic and comfortable to them. I would march with you if you were discriminated against because of your transsexuality. At the same time, my life was shaped by the fact that I am female I believe not that it's hateful to say that. "

On Tuesday morning, her first comment had over 200,000 likes and about 92,000 retweets.

Rowling commented on a May 28 Devex commentary that included the phrase "people who menstruate" in the heading and quipped in a separate Saturday tweet: "I'm sure there was a word for these people earlier. Someone help me." . Bowing? Wimpund? Woomud? "

The author also published a May 2019 article from The Velvet Chronicle by Julia Diana Robertson, who published a letter from an anonymous lesbian who wrote that she had never been so scared as in previous years when she was dealing with LGBTQ-identified individuals lived. Lesbians have been maliciously molested and attacked by men, some of whom claim to be lesbians, she said.

Numerous media articles in which Rowling was described as "anti-trans" and "transphobic" soon appeared and LBGT activists blew up the author.

"JK Rowling continues to subscribe to an ideology that deliberately distorts facts about gender identity and transsexuals. In 2020, there is no excuse to target transsexuals," tweeted the gay and lesbian alliance against defamation, which rowling's comments called "inaccurate and cruel."

Many of the responses to Rowling's most recent contributions have been termed TERF, which stands for "trans-exclusionary radical feminist" and is a derogatory arc for left-wing feminists who reject the idea that men can become women by only identifying themselves like.

Simultaneously with the advent and increasing emphasis on transgender politics within LGBT activism, belief is emerging in these circles that sex exists in a spectrum, is not binary, and is not determined by genital organs and other observable traits. Evidence of these claims is often given to people with sexual development disorders, also known as intersex conditions.

Biologist Colin Wright wrote in Quillette in defense of Rowling on Sunday that the claims of contemporary gender activists "result from fundamental misunderstandings about the nature of the biological sex associated with the different types of gametes (sex cells) that an organism produces . ""

"As a general concept, men are the sex that small gametes (spermatozoa) and women produce large gametes (egg cells). There are no intermediate gametes, which is why there is no spectrum of sex. Biological sex in humans is a binary system," he said.

In December, Rowling spoke out in defense of tax researcher Maya Forstater – a woman who was pushed out of her job because she wrote on Twitter that men who identify as transgender people are not women – according to a ruling by the Labor Court, in which the judge said Forstater's views were "not" worthy of respect. "

"Dress as you want. Name yourself as you want. Sleep with every consenting adult who will have you. Live your best life in peace and security. But force women out of their jobs because they claim to be sex Really? #IStandWithMaya #ThisIsNotADrill, "Rowling said at the time.
