On the same day the ACLU invented the term “menstrual equity“, here’s what JK Rowling said, quoted in case her tweet is deleted:
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?
Maya is Maya Forstater, a woman who fired from her job in England for claiming biological sex is real, an action held justified and sane by a Tribunal in charge of such things.
Maya Forstater, 45, did not have her contract renewed after posting a series of tweets questioning government plans to let people declare their own gender.
Ms Forstater believes trans women holding certificates that recognise their transgender identity cannot describe themselves as women.
But that view is “not worthy of respect in a democratic society”, a judge said.
Ms Forstater, who had worked as a tax expert at the think tank Center for Global Development, was not entitled to ignore the rights of a transgender person and the “enormous pain that can be caused by misgendering”, employment judge James Tayler said.
Ms Forstater was “absolutist” in her view, he concluded in a 26-page judgement.
“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,” he continued.
“The approach is not worthy of respect in a democratic society.”
It is indeed “absolutist” to say that biological sex exists. This “absolutist” position is what accounted for the birth of this idiot judge.
Well, I say idiot, but it’s worth pondering the reason it (I wouldn’t want to presume the gender of this creature) used. The BBC was right in singling out “not worthy of respect in a democratic society”. This is key.
This is the voting fallacy, combined with a growing gnosticism. The voting fallacy, well beloved in our sort of one-creature-one-vote democracies, says that whatever the simple majority declares as true and moral is true and moral because majorities make or re-make reality.
Yet majorities wouldn’t be able to re-make reality without that gnosticism, a philosophy which claims we are not what we are, but what we believe we are. Consider what evidence there is for a man who believes he is a woman to claim he is a woman. Only his desire, and nothing more. All objective measurements, all based on Reality, are ruled out of consideration. In Forstater’s case, officially ruled out of consideration.
If you cannot use your senses, or genetics, or anything else objective, you are forced to rely solely on what the person claims. Words are like magic! They re-make Reality itself. How could Rowling not now this?
Anyway, Forstater was canned, as we say, or sacked as the perfidious Albions say. And Rowling said what she said.
That’s when her Legion of LARPers started casting hate spells against their one-time heroine. I suppose I should “atehay spells”, given Rowling’s preference for pig Latin.
The left “chimped out”. It got so bad they had to import poop into their cells so they wouldn’t run out of it to throw. The Twitter Blue Cheka were in particularly fine form.
Some creature at Vox tweeted “Vox is getting totally ratioed by Nazis over my JKR article, so to spite them all, please click on it one more time”, from which we must conclude that only Nazis believe in biological sex.
A doctor, also representing a growing trend, said “I’m not here to cancel JK Rowling as a person and stoke mob outrage. I’m just here to educate and inform. Trans rights are human rights and trans women are women. Also, white feminism can sometimes intersect with trans exclusion or white supremacy, which is unjust.”
My theory is some quacks are happy to go along with “trans” fantasies so that they can increase their billing.
But it must be obvious that anybody who says “transwoman” is both acknowledging the reality of biological sex and that the person referred to is not a woman. If the person referred to is a woman then they would say “woman” and wouldn’t bother with the “trans.” Saying “trans” admits the error.
Luke Skywalker, ceding the last of his waning masculinity, said “Ignorance is no excuse, but I liked the tweet without understanding what the last line or hashtags meant. It was the 1st 4 lines I liked & I didn’t realize it had any transphobic connotation.”
There are tens of thousands of responses. There seemed to be an implicit contest to see who could be the most grieved-shocked-outraged.
Perhaps something good will come out of this. It’s a long shot, but maybe the deluded in their rage will dump their childish Harry Potter obsession.
On the other hand, probably not. It’s instead clear they’re coming for you, dear reader, if you still hold to Reality.

Let the Revolution eats its own children.
In the same vein as Sander: Agreed. That’s historically how insanity is finally defeated, as the insane have no boundaries and start getting comfortable with their own immunity to their insanity. Then they eat their own, usually first as these are the most easily attacked and devoured.
“not worthy of respect in a democratic society” Not worthy of a society at all.
We are talking anarchy and the lies the overlords use to create one. We do not have a society, we have zoo with the animals running wild and zookeepers locking themselves in buildings to avoid being eaten. However, as noted above, the insane (humans with only animal instincts) devour without morality or thought. They cannot be appeased. They can never be satisfied.
Of course using “trans” is a full admission one LIED about this being a woman. Yet saying that is just wrong, even though it’s so obvious as to be undeniable. Torture, in the form of attacks and job loss, is the way overlords work and it’s in full swing. Disagree, and we make your life torure forever. I suppose the good news is the animals are so busy attacking high profile targets that most rational people can still speak of reality. Either the animals are caged, eliminated, or eat their own soon or that will change also. Time to build cages and/or break out hunting gear. Or hide until they destroy each other…..
My question for these people: If you can be whatever you want, then you can eliminate or bend reality. Fine. I will side with you when you can say “there is no gravity” and throw yourself off a 20 story building. After all, people who weigh more fall faster, so gravity is unfair to the obese (physics aside, of course, since the difference is minute and physics is unfair anyway). So stop believing and supporting gravity. The day I find anyone who will do this, I’ll call a woman who claims to be a man a man. Until then, it’s Chastity Bono, not Chaz. Also, ever notice men trans to women at about a 50 to one ratio???? And women claim men are the overlords???? Stupid/lying at its finest. (I had a sibling who believed that gravity was not “real”, but admitted he wasn’t ready to jump of a building to admit it. He also said he was tempted to test if he told his kids that cars couldn’t hurt them and they believed in it, they could not be hurt. They could play in traffic without harm. Didn’t work for the dogs they had, so I have no idea why he thought kids were different. The dogs didn’t believe they would be hurt, so believing had ZERO to do with this. He lives in his car……)
After all, people who weigh more fall faster, so gravity is unfair to the obese
Even if they fall at the same rate of speed, the obese hit the ground with more force. So gravity is still unfair.
What are the necessary and sufficient conditions of being a woman?
Sex is a word from biology and refers to a classification of individuals as male or female based on chromosomes. I’m still looking for somebody to explain the physical basis of gender to me and how you trans it.
Maybe this will help:

Best paragraph in this article: “But it must be obvious that anybody who says “transwoman” is both acknowledging the reality of biological sex and that the person referred to is not a woman. If the person referred to is a woman then they would say “woman” and wouldn’t bother with the “trans.” Saying “trans” admits the error.”
So sad that so many are so confused and so many purposely obfuscating the truth. So much to answer for, later on, in the end.
God bless, C-Marie
