    Long piece in The Cut asking WHO DID JK ROWLING BECOME?

    apparently it's a great piece so maybe I'll save it for some cheery Christmas reading in the car tomorrow :eyes:

    Yes, I made a start. It was getting a lot of comments on my facebook feed anyway.

    I see Stephen Fry still read the audio book for her last book that was out in November

    I haven't watched yet (saving it for the weekend), but Natalie Wynn AKA ContraPoints has done a 90-minute long video esaay about Rowling:

    I know Natalie has her critics when it comes to some sections of the community, but I've personally found her videos on trans issues to be very enlightening so I'm looking forward to hearing her thoughts on this.

    "trans women are the GREATEST EVIL IN THE WORLD because it's just MEN invading WOMEN'S SPACES!"

    "oh well I guess if THEY can do it, I MAY AS WELL DO this thing I'm insisting is the GREATEST EVIL IN THE WORLD TOO!"

    Also I don't care if this violates the Moopy bullying policy but I really hope Graham Linehan just dies in a house fire.

    Why has he done it? Is he trying to make a point?

    It would only violate it if you were encouraging one of us to start the fire.

    So if Graham Linehan read this topic, the wish that he died in a house fire would not cause any problems whatsoever?

    I note that he thinks that he's STILL YOUNG.

    If it's permissible under British free speech laws, I think it's permissible here (unless it's to other posters). "I think (x) should die in a house fire" = fine, as it's an expression of opinion. "Somebody should set fire to (x)'s house" = not fine, as it's incitement to violence.

    I just said I hope it happens! Does Graham Linehan hate HOPE now?!

    I think he's planning to accuse people of being hypocrites for objecting to him 'self-identifying' as a lesbian in spite of the fact that he's plainly doing it in bad faith, following which he will declare victory before sloping off for a cry-wank over Jojo Siwa.

    I hate it when people do this. This kind of cheap High School sarcasm is what people resort to when they realize nobody is taking them seriously anymore. It's so cowardly. All it does is expose their personal bias towards the issue they're mocking.
