“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling has been the target of multiple cancellation attempts by radical transgender rights advocates over the last couple of years after she had the nerve to speak out in December 2019 in defense of British woman Maya Forstater, who lost her job (and a lawsuit against her former employer) after old tweets surfaced where she stated biological men could not be women.

“Dress however you please. Call yourself whatever you like. Sleep with any consenting adult who’ll have you. Live your best life in peace and security. But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real? #IStandWithMaya #ThisIsNotADrill,” Rowling tweeted at the time.

Despite the massive amount of harassment she received in response to that tweet and continues to face to this day, Rowling has remained unapologetic, maintaining her position while continuing to speak out in defense of other women to be able to voice their opinions without fear of retribution from online mobs.

Unfortunately, the targeted harassment of Rowling by militant left-wingers took a dark turn this past Friday when they took to the Twitter machine to post a photo of themselves standing in front of Rowling’s home, the street address of which was clearly visible according to Rowling.

In a Twitter thread she posted this morning where she discussed the incident and noted Twitter took swift action as did the Scotland police, Rowling also talked about women who had had similar experiences to hers after they spoke out but, unlike Rowling, have no public profile and are not protected in a way that she has been. As a result, they live in constant fear of what the mob will do next:

It was her last tweet, however, that cut the trans rights movement at the knees. In it, Rowling suggested that “the best way to prove your movement isn’t a threat to women, is to stop stalking, harassing and threatening us.” It was her way of letting them know that with their continuing doxing and threats against women who spoke out that they were actually proving the point about how the transgender movement is aggressively misogynistic that those same women including Rowling are making:

To reiterate a point I’ve made before, as outspoken women like Rowling and the outraged woman in the Wi Spa controversy remind us, it’s imperative that we raise our voices if we feel safe enough to do so and stand against the nonsense that hurts women and young girls every day it’s allowed to continue in locker rooms, dressing rooms, women’s shelters, and women’s sporting events. Because no matter what the courts decide here in America and elsewhere in the future about women’s rights and those of transgender people, this battle will not and should not be over until women and young girls not only feel safe enough to speak out on this issue but also feel safe in sex-segregated facilities – and in their chosen sport – again.
