It seems like Harry potter The author – whose latest claims accuse many of transphobia after going into controversial discussions about sex and biological sex – is once again the subject of criticism. This time, it is just revealed about her new novel (for adults, written under her pseudonym Robert Galbraith), Troubled blood.
“The meat of the book is an investigation into a cold case: the disappearance of GP Margot Bamborough in 1974, thought to be a victim of a transgender serial killer, Denise Creed,” wrote critic Jake Carridge Wire. “One wonders that critics of Rowling’s stance on trans issues will produce a book that seems to be ethical: never trust a man in a costume.”
The response, so far, has been negative on Twitter with “#RIPJKowling” trending, as she called with a mixture of anger and excitement – and not just for using the well-worn and damaging trope of a transgender serial killer (á la) Psycho, Dressed to Kill, Silence of the Lambs And more) in her new book, but to do so on the heels of her most recent public line about transgender identity, which is being viewed by her critics as a bizarre dualization.
From ‘Psycho to Ed Dressed to Kill’ from bs Silence of the Lambs’ to this latest screw: Sis Lok makes a heck of a lot of fictional stories about trans murder, but Sis Lok makes a tremendous killing possibility More real world folk. https://t.co/qO6HCoUe5q

“JK Rowling’s new book is being called transphobic.”
It is about “a murderous CIS man who dresses as a woman to kill his victims”
It was called Dressed to Kill (1980)
You guys think this is bad, you should go to the Watch Silence of the Lambs.
Then hide under their beds.

Rowling dismissed allegations of transphobia in December 2019 when she tweeted in defense of Maya Forstarter, a UK researcher who had lost her job after expressing her views on transgender people – including the belief that “changing sex Impossible “- is deemed” not worthy of respect in a democratic society. ” After the woman filed a discrimination suit and lost, Rowling came to her rescue on Twitter, saying, “Dress, but you please. Call whatever you like … but to tell sex is real for women.” Get out of your job?
Dress but you please.
Whatever you like, call yourself.
Sleep with any grown adult you will have.
Live your best life in peace and security.
But have women been forced out of their jobs to make sex real? #IStandWithMaya #This is not a drill

This caused a huge uproar among many in the LGBTQ community, calling their comments “heartbreaking” to “TERF”. The latter is a familiar one that stands for “trans-exclusive radical feminist”, a pejorative term used to describe a feminist who is considered to be a transphobic faith. Still, others came to the rescue of Rowling, along with feminist writer Julie Bindel, for example, Worth noting, “You’re awesome.”
Then, when the angry buzzing subsided, Rowling returned to Twitter in June when he shared an op-ed and apparently took issue with the headline: “Opinion: A More Equal Post-Covered-19 World.” Banana for menstruating people. “With his tweet, he said,” People who menstruate. “I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud ? “
‘Those who menstruate.’ I am sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?

There was more:
If sex is not real, then there is no same sex attraction. If sex is not real, then the living reality of women on the world stage disappears. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many people to discuss their lives. It is not hate to tell the truth.

The tweet rekindled a range of LGBTQ activists and accusations of anger, injury and transphobia from several organizations, including the Trevor Project and GLAD.
Ms. Rowling, I am a physician who grew up reading your books and still loves them. I care about children and young adults, some of whom menstruate but are not women. They are not girls or women. And words like yours hurt them, erasing their sense of safety and well-being.

The vast consensus of medical and other scientific experts validates and affirms trans people. The medical organizations in your country have said as much.
You don’t love trans people, and certainly don’t care about us.

This is… JK Rowling created this spectacle of transphobic bigotry under the guise of feminism, when we are fighting for black lives. She is not available, which it is, but the way she keeps repeating herself without reading in the room …. is my goodness.

Then, soon after, Rowling published a long piece on his website, tweeting it with the caption “TERF Wars“And adding even more fuel to the fire.”
“This is not an easy piece to write, for reasons that will become apparent soon, but I know that it is time to explain myself to an issue surrounded by poisoning. I write this without any desire to add to that toxicity, “she wrote, and then” outlined five reasons to be concerned about new trans activism. “Then came more tweets, in July, stating the long-term health risks of hormone therapy used to facilitate gender change. Yet another reaction occurred.
Now, with this latest news about Rowling’s new book, the hurts are halted, his opponents say.
Still, some have come to her rescue – most notably actor Robbie Coltrane, who played the role in Hagrid Harry potter Movies and told Radio times In outrage, “I don’t think what he said was really offensive.” I don’t know why but there is a whole twitter generation of people who roam around waiting to be offended. Other defenders include journalist Kim Wilsher, the Atlantic Staff writer Helen Lewis and writers Helen Dale and Andrew Doyle, as well as the UK group (whichever, has been called transphobic) LGB Alliance.
Has The World Gone Mad?
1. JK Rowling’s new book is not out yet, so all these people have asked him to die.
2. The villain reportedly (I haven’t read it) a man who dresses as a woman to kill a transwoman if not how transphobic? https://t.co/OWDgztfmB8

I am really upset with the JK Rowling news cycle. The Telegraph appears to have published a review with a clickbait title. This was followed by Pink News, which introduced it most in the context of a culture war. Outrage of two publications.

The periodical reminds that writers can write about whatever they like. You do not own JK Rowling’s pen.
I did this go-round 25 years ago with my first novel. My point of view is similar to my thought now.
Don’t buy our books if you don’t like what we write. 
– Helen Dale (@_HelenDale) September 15, 2020
Good to see Robbie Coltrane defending JK Rowling.
All sensible adults understand the extent to which he has been misrepresented.
If everyone has the courage to say what they know, then this anti-JK craze may actually end. http: //t.co/9efXhh46yv

We are afraid of silencing our elected representatives, our institutions, the media, and a large number of celebrities due to death threats and abuses. @JK Rowling. Silence is complexity. Prove us wrong say now.

Nevertheless, many say that Rowling’s approach has become tainted forever, especially in light of the latest book. Contains United states today Culture critic Kelly Lawler, who wrote on Tuesday, while she has been a long-time fan of all of her novels, “ever since Rowling made headlines this summer for her commentary on transgender rights, which has been widely praised as transphobic Condemned, I can’t see anyone. The story is written in the same light … You can’t separate art from artist. Not anymore, when the tone of both writer and novel is not the same. Rowling Says she supports trans people, but we can judge her only by her actions and words. After reading 927 pages of them, I am not inclined to change my decision. ”
