Writer apologizes to JK Rowling after finding NO evidence she is transphobic

An LGBTQ activist has praised JK Rowling for her ‘courage’ and told her followers that people are ‘burning the wrong witch’ after failing to find any evidence that the Harry Potter author is transphobic.

EJ Rosetta, a writer and columnist for HuffPost who herself has been vocal on transgender issues, said in a series of tweets that JK Rowling was ‘not an ‘insufferable transphobe’ but stood up for women’s rights when she could just sit back.

JK Rowling has long faced death and rape threats for her views on transgender issues. Critical LGBTQ activists have called the author a TERF, a trans-exclusionary radical feminist, and have repeatedly condemned her for her views.

The author’s comments and tweets prompted Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson to distance themselves from the creator of the world.

But LGBTQ writer EJ Rosetta is adamant that activists are ‘burning the wrong witch’.

JK Rowling (pictured in March 2022) has long faced criticism for her views on transgender issues, beginning with a series of tweets in June 2020.

In the tread, EJ Rosetta wrote: ‘Okay, I’m done. 3 months ago I was commissioned to write an article detailing ’20 transphobic JK Rowling quotes we ended up with’ After 12 weeks of reading her books, tweets, whole essay and finding the context of these ‘quotes’, I haven’t found one truly transphobic message.’

The HuffPost columnist and writer continued: ‘I peaked in the process. JK Rowling is not an ‘insufferable transphobe’, she is a (talented) woman who could have sat and been loved forever, but looked around and paid attention because the intersection of trans rights and women’s rights had understandable problems growing.’

‘In many cases the rights of one group are sacrificed for another, and the most vulnerable women often pay the price. Here in Britain we always want to support both sides, but we understand that in some cases (such as DV Shelters) this is impossible. JK was also paying attention.

‘JK saw the gaps being created and knew that women needed a voice. So instead of sitting back and wishing everyone well, he said ‘It must be me, isn’t it?’. She did something terrifying and amazing and she used her voice, I imagine she knew damn well what was coming.’

‘That’s courage,’ said the American writer who lives in Great Britain.

‘3 months of dedicated research and I can’t find a single truly transphobic quote from JK Rowling that stands up to the scrutiny of journalistic integrity. The abuse that JK suffered is inexcusable. Every threat of death, threat and torrent of abuse, she gave birth to with grace.’

In her final tweet of the thread, Rosetta called out the trolls who bashed the author: ‘Shame on you for posting to her under the guise of ‘reporting’ when you must know, deep down, you’re just putting out clickbait and hating. Shame on those who followed that propaganda without critical thinking.

“You’re burning the wrong witch. I stand with @jk_rowling.’

In a Twitter thread, writer EJ Rosetta said she was adamant about activists ‘burning the guilty witch’

JK Rowling initially came under fire in June 2020 after she retweeted an opinion piece in which she referred to the term ‘menstruating people’ instead of the publication’s reference to ‘women’.

The author tweeted: ‘Menstruating people.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?’

She was also rebuked by LGBTQ activists in 2020 when she wrote: ‘Erasing the concept of sex removes the ability for many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It’s not hate to tell the truth.’

She added: ‘I respect the right of every trans person to live in any way that feels authentic and comfortable to them. I would march with you if you were discriminated against for being trans. At the same time, my life is shaped by being a woman. I don’t think it’s hateful to say that.’

EJ Rosetta said she is a self-identified ‘recovered TERF’. The term is used to describe feminists who others believe trans rights are excluded from women’s rights.

Since then, the HuffPost writer has said trans rights must be respected and called for equality. She also raised awareness of the high suicide rate of trans youth.

JK Rowling’s comments prompted Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe to speak out following her tweets in 2020 in a statement released through the Trevor Project, a suicide prevention charity for the LGBTQ community.

The actor said: ‘I understand that certain media outlets will probably want to portray this as a conflict between JK Rowling and myself, but that’s not really what this is about, and it’s not what’s important right now. While Jo is undoubtedly responsible for the course my life has taken, as someone who has had the honor of working with and continues to contribute to the Trevor Project for the past decade, and just as a human being, I feel compelled to say something at this moment.’

The actor concluded: ‘Transgender women are women. Any statement to the contrary erases the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice from professional health associations who have far more expertise on the subject than Jo or myself.’

Emma Watson also responded to JK Rowling’s comments in June 2020. Actress Hermione Granger wrote: ‘Trans people are who they say they are and deserve to live their lives without being constantly questioned or told that they are not who they are. are presented.

‘I want my trans followers to know that I and so many other people around the world see you, respect you and love you for who you are.’
