Harry Potter author JK Rowling accuses transgender rights activists of posting her home address on the internet
Harry Potter author JK Rowling recently tweeted that she had been doxxed. Three activist actors allegedly took pictures in front of her house without attempting to conceal her address, according to the woman. After this, the author claims she received “so many death threats I could paper the house with them.” On Twitter, she mentioned the accounts of the three activists who had posted the picture. Several people reported them, and Scotland Police intervened, resulting in their accounts being suspended, according to reports. There’s a topic about it here: Earlier this week, three activist actors shared a photo of themselves in front of my family’s home on Twitter, ensuring that our address was clearly apparent.
“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. “
“I implore those people who retweeted the image with the address still visible, even if they did so in condemnation of these people’s actions, to delete it.”
“Over the last few years I’ve watched, appalled, as women like Allison Bailey, Raquel Sanchez, Marion Miller, Rosie Duffield, Joanna Cherry, Julie Bindel, Rosa Freedman, Kathleen Stock and many, many others, including women who have no public profile.”
“But who’ve contacted me to relate their experiences, have been subject to campaigns of intimidation which range from being hounded on social media, the targeting of their employers, all the way up to doxing and direct threats of violence, including rape.”
“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…”
“I’ve now received so many death threats I could paper the house with them, and I haven’t stopped speaking out. Perhaps – and I’m just throwing this out there – the best way to prove your movement isn’t a threat to women, is to stop stalking, harassing and threatening us.”
Her views on gender and sexuality have put JK Rowling at the centre of controversy. She was accused of being transphobic by several social media users for her comments. As a result of her refusal to back down, many of her readers cancelled her book. She was termed a ‘trans-exclusionary radical feminism’ for her views on the transgender community (TERF). Stars like Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson have distanced themselves from Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling in recent years. She was just omitted from a special HBO episode dubbed ‘Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts’ supposedly because of her opinions. Many of her readers, however, believed that her words were in support of women and feminism.
