trans rights, jkr vs Stephen King
JKR tweeted praise of Stephen King, he replied "Yes. Trans women are women," and she deleted her tweet.
Sometimes it's a good thing when people meet their heroes. A shame JKR took nothing useful from the encounter.
re: trans rights, jkr vs Stephen King
OK there's a bit more to it than that but the main theme applies.
Apparently King RTd something of JKRs, which led to the praise tweet.
The "Trans women are women" tweet was a reply to someone else on Twitter asking King to address the RT he made to clarify that he did not endorse JKR's transphobia, to which he obliged. The rest of the story then fell into place.
