Topics Identity Politics Polemics UK

If you’d have said 10 years ago that JK Rowling would soon become a hate figure among the cultural elites, people would have thought you were mad. Her Harry Potter series is beloved the world over. She is immaculately liberal-left. Why would she ever be demonised by the great and good? Well, because she believes in biological sex and single-sex spaces – views held by the vast majority of the population, but deemed ‘transphobic’ by gender ideologues. Here, Lauren Smith explains how intolerant transgender activists pulled off the most vicious character assassination of the woke era – and commends Rowling for refusing to betray her principles. Watch, share and let us know what you think.
