Harry Potter author JK Rowling has supported a researcher who lost her job over her tweet which says ‘men cannot change into women’. JK Rowling took to Twitter and defended Maya Forstater. Through her tweet, she announced that she stands with Maya and fans are disappointed over the post.
Fans called her a TERF (Trans Exclusive Radical Feminist). She shared a post on Twitter and said: ” 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. But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real?” The author also used a hashtag #IStandWithMaya and #ThisIsNotADrill in the tweet which shows that she supports Maya.
Since the tweet has been posted it has been liked over 10,000 times and gathered the supportive comment.
One fan said: “You are a national treasure and a hero to women. Thank you.” Another said: “This is your best piece of writing. You absolute star.” Many others have said that Ms. Rowling is wrong and should withdraw her support.
