JK Rowling does not. give. a. f*ck. It's funny to think of all those woke nincompoops who self-identified as sects from the Harry Potterverse in their battle against
. Who now all hate Rowling due to her insistence
as a feminist to defend women's rights
. Yes, even though transgenders outrank women on the pound-for-pound most marginalized rankings. But the author's last tweet shut those haters down for good.
Very much enjoying the recent spate of bearded men stepping confidently onto their soapboxes to define what a woman is and throw their support behind rape and death threats to those who dare disagree. You may mock, but takes real bravery to come out as an Old Testament prophet.

This is where Rowling caused mean-girl tears with her most savage roast yet:
"I read my most recent royalty cheques and find the pain goes away pretty quickly."
Here's the thing. Most of the drama surrounding JK Rowling exists in one of two places. The first is on the least popular, least used social media app. The second is in the ranting of bloggers who spend too much time on the least popular, least-used social media app. The legions of JK Rowling fans don't care.
Take one hundred JK Rowling fans. I'll bet you ninety-eight out of a hundred don't know there is a small group of loud activists who call her a "transphobe." If you tell them some of her controversial ideas, like how criminals born with penises should not be allowed in a women's prison just because it makes them feel good about themselves, they won't find them controversial. Because there is the real world, and there is Twitter.
JK Rowling's haters live on Twitter. She lives in the real world and uses Twitter to pass the time and amuse herself. That's why she lives a happy life on a pile of money, and her haters have sore fingertips banging away on their keyboards.
