Rowling faces backlash for supporting researcher dismissed for transphobia

JK Rowling is facing widespread criticism after tweeting support for a researcher who lost her job for stating that people cannot change their biological sex. The researcher, Maya Forstater, had been a visiting fellow at the Centre for Global Development, which declined to renew her contract. A judge this week upheld her dismissal, finding that her views of sexual identity were ’absolutist’.

Faux outrage from people who think there are more than two genders.

Phobia "Irrational fear or hatred". So, it's "transphobia" to state an obvious truth? A male who has chemical and surgical treatments to look more like a woman will be just that... A man who's taken chemical and surgical treatments to look more like a woman. It's not irrational to state this obvious truth. The irrationality to think surgery or hormones will reverse the XX - XY reality.

Gender is a biologically assigned quality that is binary. It's a fact we've know forever. How on earth is it possible for a scientist to be penilized for stating the obvious, and how on earth can we penalize someone for respecting someone's right to assert the obvious truth?

So what the judge and the critics are upset about is that the researcher was simply stating the truth aka absolutist, and not pandering to transgender fantasies. What a crock!

Denying science is bad...unless its science I don't like. Sorry biologists, you're just bigots pushing hate speech. Incredible how they can justify that mental gymnastics.

Men cannot be women and women cannot be men. This is simply an inescapable fact of life. Damnit I hate having to defend JK Rowling.

She's right. No amount of plastic surgery and hormones will change your DNA.

Yes her views were absolutist because their are no biological sexes other male or female. Post modernist/socialist brain washing has undermined the most basic definitions of reality. This is no accident, if they can make you say a man can be a woman, they can you make say 2+2=5.
