J.K. Rowling called transphobic for supporting woman fired for opinion

J.K. Rowling has been a staunch supporter of the LGBTQ community, now they have turned on her because she supports a woman who got fired for holding the opinion that there are only two sexes.

A British woman lost her livelihood after claiming that there’s a clear biological difference between men and women and that — try as they might — you can’t completely transform.

Maya’s Tweet was removed from the platform for hateful conduct and her account was locked for 24 hours while thousands online celebrated the woman being out of job right before Christmas.

“I hope the b*** learned her lesson. Don’t f*** with us or we will LITERALLY ruin your life,” wrote one user.

“I hope we ruined her holidays, lol,” wrote antoher.

In response to the onslaught of harassment, Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling — who has been a very vocal and staunch supporter of the LGBTQ community — replied showing her support for Maya.

“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,” Rowling tweeted.”But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real? #IStandWithMaya.”
