“TRANS women are women. Any statement to the contrary does not negate the identity and Dignity of TRANS people. It is contrary to every message that professional health organizations that have far more Expertise than Jo and I talking.”

The sharp criticism of Rowling touched by the Tweets of last Saturday, in which they reacted to the formulation “people who menstruate”. The term came from an article about the injustices in the healthcare system.

It is not hateful to speak the truth.”

“If you have taught these books are anything, it’s that love is the strongest force in the universe – and everything can be overcome. They have taught you, that you find strength in diversity and that dogma leads tables ideologies of purity for the suppression of vulnerable groups. If you find something that you coined, or in your life has helped – then the between you and the book you’ve read, and thus it is sacred.”
