I remember hearing her say something about transwomen not being able to menstruate or bear children, which is a biological fact. I have heard nothing quoted from her though that one could call, "radical trans-phobic," unless I missed something after, as the coverage of the affair descended into typical irrational attacks and insults between social progressives and social conservatives like all these issues do nowadays. Both sides of the social aspect in modern politics from the most vocal and sensationalist media covered groups have degenerated the public discourse to an angry, two-entrenched-side kindergarten fights where the teacher has indefinitely absented themselves. Restoring reason, sensibility, and sanity is what is needed nowadays. And I have, in a few places, been treated like THAT is a radical and extremist point-of-view. 😬

Note, that this statement is meant as a matter-of-factly rendition of my viewpoints, and is not assuming you disagree or are inherently part of the problem I'm calling out.

I don't have the time to give an entire breakdown, but this article gives a pretty good history of Rowling's TERFiness. Also @vcczardefinition of TERF is technically inaccurate. as TERF stands for Trans Exclusionary Radical Federalist, not just anybody radically transphobic.

I'm confused as to why the word, "Federalist," is in that term, but I'll look this over.

I meant to say Trans Exclusionary Radical FEMINIST, not Federalist lmao. Now I'm thinking about Alexander Hamilton going on a rant about the importance of not allowing trans women to use women's' bathrooms XD
