JK Rowling Tweets in Support of Woman who was Fired for Alleged Transphobia



JK Rowling, who has previously come under fire for following radical feminists who have been accused of being terfs such as Magdalen Berns, has just publicly weighed in on the Maya Forstater controversy by saying she supports Forstater.

Maya Forstater is a tax expert whose work - Centre for Global Development (CGD) - fired her for tweets upholding the idea of biological difference such as "I think that male people are not women. I don’t think being a woman/female is a matter of identity or womanly feelings. It is biology." Forstater has said that in her personal life she uses preferred pronouns. The work's decision was upheld recently by an employment tribunal.

JK Rowling has gotten a lot of replies already accusing her of being a terf.
