Uberwoke Failed Screenwriter JK Rowling: Biological Sex Is Real
Leftists/Trans Extremists: You, Sir, are Cancelled

It's a Blessing of Liberty (TM) from our British friends!

A charity worker was fired because she expressed the illegal opinion that biological sex is real and not just a fantasy.

Apparently a fantasy that everyone is in the thralls of, except the 0.1% of the population which is "trans." See, they're the rational ones here. Everyone else is crazy.

A court has upheld her firing, saying her beliefs were entitled to no protection under British law and "not worthy of respect in a democratic society."

As a matter of law, this judge has rules that British law now states, categorically, that it is illegal to suggest that trans "women" are in any way different from actual women.

It's illegal.

And it's coming to America sooner than you think.

Note that American judges routinely cite the opinions of European and especially British judges when announcing Brave New World diktats for the US.

A researcher who lost her job at a thinktank after tweeting that transgender women cannot change their biological sex has lost a test case because her opinions were deemed to be "absolutist".

In a keenly anticipated judgment that will stir up fresh debate over transgender issues, Judge James Tayler, an employment judge, ruled that Maya Forstater's views did "not have the protected characteristic of philosophical belief."

...


The Central London employment tribunal convened a preliminary hearing over the issue of whether her tweets, such as "men cannot change into women", should be protected under the 2010 Equality Act. She funded her legal challenge through the CrowdJustice website.

...

But in a 26-page judgment released late on Wednesday, Tayler dismissed her claim. "I conclude from /// the totality of the evidence, that [Forstater] is absolutist in her view of sex and it is a core component of her belief that she will refer to a person by the sex she considered appropriate even if it violates their dignity and/or creates an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment. The approach is not worthy of respect in a democratic society."

JK Rowling tweeted that it was wrong to fire someone for stating, you know, basic common sense and proven science.

People are now being cancelled for noticing that the sexes are real things, and made up 90% of biological fact.


They've called to #Cancel her.

"Dress however you please. Call yourself whatever you like. Sleep with any consenting adult who’ll have you. Live your best life in peace and security. But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real?" tweeted Rowling, adding the hashtags #IStandWithMaya and #ThisIsNotADrill.

Rowling's tweet was interpreted as transphobic by activists and members of the LGBTQ community, with self-identified "queer femme" journalist Alex Berg saying, "Trans women are women and trans people deserve the right to self-identify however they need."

The LGBTQ rights and lobbying group Human Rights Campaign chimed in, saying "Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Non-binary people are non-binary. CC: JK Rowling," while the organization’s president, Alphonso David, said Rowling should apologize for “promoting a harmful fundamentalism that endangers the LGBTQ community."

Rowling wasn’t alone: British Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies also supported Forstater, saying "I believe we cannot changesex but can Live happily expressing ourselves outside of any stereotypes."

Hollywood jumped aboard the #Cancel train:

Tony award-wining Grey's Anatomy actress and LGBT activist Sara Ramirez also condemned Rowling's stance.

"Wholeheartedly disagree," she replied. "I stand with intersectional feminist humans, who recognize that trans women are real women, and against bigots like yourself. Bigotry masquerading as feminism is anything but. Your internalized distortions are helping me to continue dismantling mine. Thanks!"

Vox is, of course, on board as well, but I'd prefer not to link them.

I think California's S.B. 5 has already cancelled Vox.

Learn to code, weirdoes.

18 Honestly, just writing The Cursed Child should be sufficient reason to cancel Rowling. But the more people see the wide-scale freakouts against even the most powerful people, the harder the pendulum will swing back against these freaks. Trying to cancel Harry Potter has probably shifted the window from "abolish gay marriage" to "criminalize queers." We're not at rooftop nudges yet, but give it time.

54 It was a joke on the Simpsons that Marge said that when she married Homer she took everything including his DNA.

Now noting that no matter how thoroughly you transition, you cannot change your DNA is absolutist and mean and whatever.

I say some kind of spin that oh this is all because she was a contractor working for a place with a trans population and what about not being forced to employ people everyone!

I neither know or care enough about the facts and UK employment law to comment on that. However, it wafts the scent of not roses.

I do love the new line of attack in response to this though: If there is no such thing as biologically distinct male and female, what are people transitioning from and to?

Greatness doesn't lead to success.

The tales were appealing with likable characters based on simple archetypes and a universe that spilled over the edges and ignited the imagination. It's similar to the appeal of the first Star Wars.

The first three books were tightly edited and helped create a strong enough foundation to support the meandering later books.

-- Biological sex

-- Gender Identity

-- Sexual identity (who you want to f#@$)
Aaaaand ever since then they go into a rage when people assert that there are two **biological*** sexes, that they are are biological differences between the two biological sexes, and when someone's actual biological sex is identified.
This after going to all the trouble to lecture us that biological sex and gender identity are completely different, not necessarily related things.

Yep, was just having this conversation with Moron friend as we waited for the kids to get home from school yesterday.

There are two things that are our biggest hurdles...lack of a fair press, and the education system.

We all see what he's done and doing to the press.

Now I want him to do the same thing to education.

Then the Republic has a chance.

I
think universal vouchers, even say 50% of whatever money is allocated
per student, is available as a voucher. Stupid fucks then can have 0%
enrollment, 50% of their budget, and get stripped of their talking point
of "trying to destroy the education infrastructure blahblahblah".

And then when they can't explain why nobody wants their shitty fucking little product, we go after the other 50% of that money.

Because incrementalism works. Learned that from those fuckers.

Is It Time To Cancel The Problematic Fave, JK Rowling? By Colleen Entenmann

For many years, JK Rowling has enjoyed a position of favor in society. Her work on Harry Potter gave
her millions of fans across the globe, and she has historically had
good interactions with those fans. Rowling also had a reputation for
being a liberal icon. But recently, things have been going the wayside.

With recent events, it seems like Rowling has lost her footing and
cant seem to regain it. Every time you see Rowling in the news, its
for another misstep. Is it time to revisit our adoration for J. K.
Rowling? Should we be more critical of the people we admire?
...

Of course, fans of color have long been decrying J. K. Rowling as a fake progressive. There have always been problems, theyre just getting more attention now.

The Harry Potter books, while lovely and telling a good
story of good versus evil, are not terribly diverse. Fans have chosen to
see characters as different races, with this even going so far as to
see Hermione Granger cast as a black woman in the stage production of The Cursed Child. But in general, there is a distinct lack of non white faces at Hogwarts.
...


Cancel?

JK Rowling gave us Harry Potter, and she deserves our
thanks for that. But that isn't a get out of jail free card. She isnt
excused from accusations of queerbaiting or cultural appropriation or
racial insensitivity. She isnt a mythical goddess none dare to
criticize. As fans, it is our duty to be aware of what we are consuming,
and what we are putting out into the world.

175 "We" have had the Harry Potter phenomenon with us for over 21 years now. It had to end somehow, dinnit, and this is as good as any.

Imagine if the Star Wars universe had run up a similar blind alley. In fact, just try to imagine the minstrel-show level of shucking, jiving, and fancy-dancing that it has taken, so far, to avoid that happening. Then try to envision what its future will be under the various forces at Disney, and your master's thesis practically writes itself.

I don't like that she added to the canon (which she really didn't, the canon is what was actually published) after the fact BUT I appreciate that she didn't do all that while she was writing the books.

184 Vouchers are good, but they need to be absolute...

Eliminate the public school system - especially in the large cities. Bulldoze the schools, even if they are brand new.

Hand parents a debit card for the full amount the previous school district would have cost - That's $30,000 per child per year in Baltimore. A little more in D.C., a little less in Detroit.

Let them fend for themselves.

If a parent home schools with 4 kids, they have $120,000 a year to keep. Remember, this isn't any more expensive than what we have now.

They can hire whoever they want to teach their kids (don't worry, teachers will come out of the woodwork to take care of them). The only condition is that the kid has to pass a test every year to prove they are at grade level.

No pass, no money. There would be a one year grace period, and if the kid didn't catch up, a state appointed "educational advisor" would make the decisions and pocket 5% of the voucher for their trouble.

Easy as pie.

I know the WH wanted to argue this at trial, but I think this would be the best of all outcomes.

Harry Potter is a Deep State, urban prog bougie fantasy. He's born "special", which entitles him to admission to an exclusive school, where he is immersed in a culture wholly separate from the mass culture around him. Graduates either go into government work, academics, or some sort of charity.

It's basically a fantasy of getting accepted into Harvard, studying semiotics, and then getting a job working in the Federal government.

Of course they'll be snorting the blow, but sure as hell the kid will be at the kitchen table learning what he needs to to pass the test.

I will feel sorry for the kids when this plan is put into place, because if he takes his nose out of the book, his mother is going to smack him upside his head. No learning, no money for blow.

252 Allie- I saw that. The thing is unlike 2000 (minus Chyna) the WWE now has some women who could look credible fighting some of the cruiserweight type of wrestlers, but having the Attitude Era in their history leaves them unable to.

They don't have women who could credibility compete with Brok Lessner, but they don't have many men where it doesn't feel like a large stretch either.

Impact is small enough that they probably can get some positive attention from fans but not negative main stream press unless some spot goes wrong. Which would be in keeping with the media's "women can do anything any man can" switching to "you barbarians" in a heartbeat.

275 I'm a man and I used to sell soiled women's panties on the internet back in college.

This is how it went:

My buddy and I would get a bunch of dollar underwear from the mall, open a can of tuna, then use Wooster paint brush to paint tuna fish juice on the panties.

We'd place the 'soiled panties' in a plastic bag, steal a sexy lady photo from hotornot dot com, craft some ridiculous penthouse letter text, and then sell on eBay.

Did it for about 2 months and made a few grand. Hardest part was that eBay would shut you down quickly, and you would need to deal with perverts. Not just your regular perverts, but real sickos.

My buddy did all of the 'customer support' and it was crazy how many people would email from work accounts talking about wearing our tuna panties on their heads or some other sickness.

Finally got to be too much trouble with eBay, and he was getting jaded from pretending to be a lady who was into all of these freaks, so we moved on to other more lucrative ventures.

Seeing it all written down, somebody please say a prayer for me.

Also good is Richard B. Gartner's book, "Beyond Betrayal: life after boyhood sexual abuse."

329 I see I'm in the minority here, but I really enjoyed the Harry Potter books along with my children, the oldest of whom were the target audience and the younger of whom became such.


Come sit by me, darlin'.

I read them aloud to my boys at bedtime until they got to reading on their own without me. I had voices for each character. (I used Churchill for Dumbledore).

I appreciated that she wrote each voice distinctively enough that I could naturally fall into one for each character.

My kids, and yours, are the only generation that will know what it was like to have to wait a whole year to see what happens next.

I don't care what she's like as a human being or what her politics are, she gave us cherished family moments and helped the kids learn to love reading.

You'd think wizards would be more productive, but then I realized: they're wizards, they can do what they like. Even the idea of a Ministry of Magic is ridiculous, until you consider that at one point the plural of "wizard" was "war." Getting them to chill out and let the government take care of things probably needed a lot of work.

I wonder what would happen if you tried to cancel even a moderately competent wizard? Declare them an enemy of the state, etc? A system where half the population joins Voldemort, instead of a tiny minority of one House, is a system that is not getting overthrown.

343 So the Rowling incident follows the usual dreary pattern. Someone says something spectacularly obvious (a majority point of view) but heretical and is swarmed by feral Wokists (minority point of view), within 24 hours backtracks and apologizes, but is never the same again.

An interesting twist would be if that person was joined by another and even greater swarm of supporters (majority) who beat back and shamed the Wokists (minority) this breaking the dreary and socially inimical pattern.

Why is this is so inconceivable in our time?

345 230, It is another one of those crap sandwiches for us citizens wishing for nuking of the Swamp--Trump more or less needs witnesses to clear himself but the risk is that a lot of the "honest graft" that permeates both the R's and D's in the Senate would be exposed. The Dems might also demand all of these unvetted last minute "whistleblowers" etc. just like in Kavanaugh. Best not to go there.

IMHO, Turtle is not going to go there nor is Ms. Lindsay for obvious reasons. They and their friends have exposure. Thus, a quick dismissal and back to work is probably the best possible outcome and one that the wily old Dems in the Senate and House might secretly welcome> They can then use their version of failure theater on their followers for something that would never happen anyway.

The Original version also ended with the Aliens Winning. The Studio saw it after it was finished and Did Not Like It, they said it would scare all of the Nice People too much. So they sent it back to the director and told him to add a "happy" ending to it before they would release it.

The scariness/genius part of the original Bodysnatchers story was that our Army was destined to *become* the Aliens.

To cut to the chase, it's a cold war analogy about being betrayed from the inside by people who you thought you could trust, who turned out to be beings you didn't know at all, and who hated you. Sounds kinda familiar.

408 I found out about Pink Pistols after the Pulse nightclub shootings, when they did some interviews and advocacy.

Credit where it's due, they were right up front that they were welcomed by traditional 2A people, and outright shunned by most progressives.

The more people on board with protecting themselves, family, property, the better?

They support 2A, and from a place that usually doesn't devote much time to supporting that.

I like both .

White Christmas is an old man fantasy of hooking up with a girl in her twenties. Marjorie Reynolds is better looking than Rosemary Clooney. Debbie Reynolds should have had Vera Ellen's role. They ended up bringing in a professional dancer to keep up with Vera in the second half of the movie. Danny Kay is a better actor than Fred Astaire. The guy playing the General should have won an Oscar. There is a reference to the "Abraham" number in White Christmas. Finally the black dress Rosemary Clooney wire is hands down the best ever made (at least according to any woman that ever sees it).

actually I would say that the House Elves think like at least 90% of all the human beings alive on this planet today, maybe more. Our State Religion tells us that Everyone Wants to be Free - but it isn't true. Our founders knew that Free Men were different than the mass of humanity, and were special. Only a small minority have the courage and the drive to Live Free.

I was in the perfect audience for the books at the time. Teen nerd watching fantasy overwhelm pop culture. There are a lot of things worth learning from in Harry Potter, and making a book for children is super hard. I'm still allowed to make fun of the setting, and the author who apparently doesn't believe in a good chunk of her audience.

433 426, That is what was so unique about the U.S.--we basically caught British freedom when it was at its greatest extent and institutionalized it in the period where Parliament was contesting with kings for sovereignty. Locke and Blackstone (and alas poor forgotten Sidney) became embedded in our constitutional DNA.

It was a relatively brief period for Britain though and the traditional view of rights being a privilege on loan from a sovereign is still extent. Britain relied far more on unwritten customs and norms to curb government excesses and constrain what was possible. The establishment of the Church of England, Dissenters, and Roman Catholicism where religion and state were united also had a role in limiting heretical speech. As the culture and suffrage has changed in England, so free speech has narrowed primarily to keep unrest such as the Brixton riots down. Empires unfortunately rely on such means and as the Brit Empire shrank, the tactics of ruling an empire were adopted to rule Britons.

But if you know the fairy-tales about brownies (aka house-elves), it's creepy and evil. Kind beings taking pity on overworked humans (like shoemakers) and - instead of being rewarded with new clothes and a grateful send-off for helping the humans rise from poverty, they get pulled into endless servitude to the family and "inherited" like a piece of furniture. Worse, they're belittled and abused unlike passed-on messenger animals.

As the modern-day equivalent, they're the church charity volunteers that get locked in by a system that forces them to provide free labor to people who hate them.

445 So long as Britain is in the EU, the European Court of Human Rights compels them to enforce this shit. Which doesn't mean that it will automatically go away upon Brexit; they will have to do that through national politics. That is, if the sensible candidates are even allowed to broadcast their views.
If it's too late, then Washed-Up Britain will continue to be a big joke. Unless maybe they're allowed political candidates who can solve the problem other ways, such as by legislating their gun rights back.
