J.K. Rowling to Release a New Novel and the Villain is Reportedly a Transvestite...
One problem with trying to balance multiple tasks in a day is not always being 100% aware of why people online are upset about a thing. Probably because nine times out of ten, whatever the thing is the someones are upset about is stupid. Therefore when I checked into the internet's version of a raging forest fire, Twitter, and saw #RIPJKRowling I assumed she'd tweeted something logical, causing the rabid transgenders to drop their hormone needles down the toilet in abject shock. It took hours — HOURS — before I realized the reason for the nasty hashtag from the purveyors of compassion was due to Jo's new novel. According to Forbes, Rowling's latest foray into the crime genre has a serial killer villain. A man who dresses as a woman.
Rowling's new book, written under her pen name Robert Galbraith, is titled Troubled Blood and is the latest installment of a fictional crime series following private detective Cormoran Strike. Troubled Blood's villain is a "psychopathic serial killer," according to the book's Amazon page, and turns out to be a man who dresses as a woman.
Aren't we always hearing from the transgender community how they want to be treated like everyone else? Well congratulations. Everyone else gets cast as the villains of something. Perhaps the only people who won't ever be villains are Down syndrome people, but other than that, equality comes for all. Including He Ladies. Brave and stunning as they obviously are.
"J.K. Rowling is single-mindedly obsessed with trans people and actively frames them as predators in her novels," tweeted culture critic Elle Dawson, also referencing the second Galbraith book, The Silkworm, that was previously denounced for portraying a transgender character as aggressive.
Now admittedly, I haven't read any of the Robert Galbraith novels. I was and forever shall be a Potterhead through and through. Regardless, there are a few transgenders who've been aggressive, so let's not pretend transgender people are doleful sloths just looking to have a tame time at bookclub. Remember the GameStop transgender? I'd call that lovely he lady "aggressive" wouldn't you? What about the dainty transgender who put its large mitts on Ben Shapiro's neck, on television, and threatened his life? Which prompted the greatest one liner of Ben's career: Facts don't care about your feelings. Or this transgender person of color who also flipped out over not being addressed as "ma'am." Wouldn't you say that's aggressive?
More to the point though, should only straight men be serial killers? Are authors not allowed, ever, to portray people in pet groups as anything other than dutiful little pets who always do as they're supposed to? This sentiment strikes me as patronizing. It's like saying we're not allowed to tell jokes about gay people. Do gay people not have a sense of humor? Are they too delicate to take a joke when every other group gets mocked?
If the transgender community wants to be treated equally, then they need to be okay with everything that goes along with it. Which includes being the bad guy. Imagine if women everywhere got triggered over Gillian Flynn's revelation in Gone Girl. Imagine if women everywhere flipped out over Glenn Close's character in Fatal Attraction.
No one tell the LGBT community about Jeffrey Dahmer.
Meanwhile, many of the same people upset over Rowling's written words are under upset about Netflix's Cuties exploitation of children. I can tell you which one is worse.
