The idea was to name a good author of children's fantasy, but you do you, Buzzard. You do you!

She can't stop bigoting..

Quote:
In the tweet, she directed people to the online store that sells the T-shirt: the wild womyn workshop. She then replied to the same tweet to make sure that people got the link to that online store and told her followers to not support other stores, just this one store.

Here are some of the items for sale at that store, which ******* pins that are direct attacks on transgender people, like this one that says, “Transwomen [sic] are men.”

While most of the merch attacks trans women, this one says “Transmen [sic] are my sisters.”

If I had to guess, Rowling likely remains more popular than Corgan amongst the site's members.

Why is basically every world builder tacitly racist and bigoted? George Lucas, Rowling, Tolkien (kinda), even Frank Herbert had some questionable phrasing about natives. Lovecraft was hella fucking racist.

i'm not trolling - genuine question from someone who's not well informed on the topic -- on tv i keep seeing a commercial for tyler perry movie. in this commercial, a man dressed as a woman threatens violence "when i get him, i'm gonna beat his aaaaaaaaaaaaaasssssss" --- yet i don't see people calling for tyler perry's head or calling him a terf.

and that makes sense, it would be illogical to do that in response to the movie.

and yet, it seems to me nearly an equal reach as to say a book with a man dressed as a woman killing people is a direct assault on trans people.

right? what am i missing? a book that has a man dressed as a woman who is killing people does not seem like an intentional jab at trans people to me any more than a tyler perry character threatening to beat someone's ass does

for what it's worth, i could give a rat's behind about jk rowling, i've only read one of the harry potter books and did not think it was well written, and have only seen the movies in passing when they're on the tv, and really don't care about it at all. i'm not a fan.


final thoughts, i've never seen a tyler perry movie either, but i've seen that commercial so many times now that i've developed an affinity for that line "i'm gonna beat his aaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssss", and now i want to watch it

I think the reaction in this case is driven by how the plot summary for this new story pairs with things she's been quoted as saying, such as, "When you throw open the doors of bathrooms and changing rooms to any man who believes or feels he’s a woman . . . then you open the door to any and all men who wish to come inside."

so is it fair to say that in a vacuum, the notion of the book is not obviously problematic? but when viewed within the context of other things the author has said, it can be interpreted more sinisterly?
