After tweet about “women”

When JK Rowling (54) posted one of her countless tweets on Sunday night , she certainly didn’t think it would bring such turmoil. She shared an article entitled “Opinion: Creating a more equitable post-Covid 19 world for people who menstruate.” Many found the comment she made on it to be more than inappropriate and conjured up a shit storm.

The “Harry Potter” creator wrote: “‘Men who menstruate.’ I’m sure there was a word for these people once. Help me get started. Bowing? Wimpund? Woomud? ”Of course, it alludes to the English word“ women ”, in German“ women ”. Many users from the LGBTQ community saw this as tactless and subsequently accused Rowling of being transphobic.

Rowling got involved in the following discussions and explained her point of view, among other things, as follows : “I know and love transgender people, but abolishing the concept of gender also removes the opportunity for many to discuss their lives in a meaningful way.” Telling the truth ”.

The author also explained, among other things , that it is “nonsense” to accuse her and other women of hating transgender people because they believe in the gender concept. “I respect the right of every transperson to live the way they see it as authentic and pleasant,” writes Rowling . “I would protest with you if you were only discriminated against for being a transgender. At the same time, my life was shaped by the fact that I am a woman. I don’t think it’s hateful to say this. ”
