J.K. Rowling is not happy about how trans activists have responded to her comments in recent memory. She is especially not happy about how they have gone about posting her personal details.

The Harry Potter author went on a multiple tweet address that detailed her beef with the trans community and those who support them. She remains unapologetic in her stance as well.

This years-long battle with the trans community and Rowling doesn’t appear to be getting any better at all. Several authors have also left Rowling’s agency out of protest to her stance. Rowling threw out many other accusations that they are intimidating people due to her controversial stance.

Last Friday, my family’s address was posted on Twitter by three activist actors who took pictures of themselves in front of our house, carefully positioning themselves to ensure that our address was visible.

I want to say a massive thank you to everybody who reported the image to @TwitterSupport. Your kindness and decency made all the difference to my family and me. I’d also like to thank @PoliceScotland for their support and assistance in this matter.

None of these women are protected in the way I am. They and their families have been put into a state of fear and distress for no other reason than that they refuse to uncritically accept that the socio-political concept of gender identity should replace that of sex.

I have to assume that @IAmGeorgiaFrost, @hollywstars and @Richard_Energy_ thought doxxing me would intimidate me out of speaking up for women’s sex-based rights. They should have reflected on the fact that

We will have to see what happens next in this situation, but it doesn’t appear to be cooling down in the slightest. J.K Rowling has also lost some fans for the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchises since those thoughts about the trans community were made public.
