Why do people hate the word funner

"Harry Potter" creator J. K. Rowling causes outrage - why?

A new tweet from J.K. Rowling causes a stir. The author is described by numerous users as transphobic. Not the first time that the "Harry Potter" inventor has come under fire.

J.K. Rowling published several tweets on Sunday night, causing outrage. She shared an article titled "Opinion: Creating a More Equitable Post-Covid-19 World for People Who Menstruate". Many found the comment she made more than inappropriate and conjured up a shit storm.

The "Harry Potter" creator wrote: "'Men who menstruate.' I'm sure that there was once a word for these people. Give me a hand. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud? " She was referring to the English word "Women", in German "Frauen". Many users from the LGBTQ community saw this as tactless and accused Rowling of being transphobic.

Rowling defends himself against the allegations

Rowling took part in the following discussions and explained her point of view as follows, among other things: "I know and love transgender people, but removing the concept of gender also removes the opportunity for many to meaningfully discuss their lives." It is "no hate to tell the truth".

The author also stated that it was "nonsense" to accuse her and other women of hating transgender people because they believe in the concept of gender. "I respect the right of every trans person to live in whatever way they think is authentic and comfortable," wrote Rowling. "I would protest with you if you were only being discriminated against for being transgender. At the same time, my life was shaped by my being a woman. I don't think it's hateful to say that."

The 54-year-old liked a post on Twitter last year, the content of which was transphobic. It came from the anti-transgender activist Fred Sargeant. In the post he is cynical about Alex Drummond - someone who does not want to be male.
