Imagine being upset at someone because they said that women don't have penises.

Stouffer claimed Rowling based Harry Potter on Larry Potter and that Stouffer coined the word "muggle" which Rowling then used in her novels. However, in 2002 Rowling took legal action against Stouffer and the court found that Stouffer had provided them with forged documents and that she had retroactively inserted the word "muggle" into her books.

Yeah, why do I get the feeling the name change is more about trademark and sponsorships than "social justice".
Because you're a bitter old cynic who justifies his emotionally empty money obsession by claiming everybody else is the same?

Just a guess. How'd I do? Do I win Final Jeopardy?

The high clerics of woke have declared Rowling anathema. She is a trans heretic. She is, in the gnarly coinage of that community, a TERF (trans-exclusionary radical feminist). Needless to say the bunch that made up that hideous acronym will not be writing books for a world audience.

Apparently Rowling has been making the most outrageous statements, chief of which is the proposition that a biological man cannot be a biological woman. And the vice is also the versa. The backlash has been intense and extremely ugly. She has been viciously assailed on the Twitter stream. She has had death threats and has had her home address posted.


But she holds her own. She does not bend. Last year when certain authorities began promoting the phrase “people who menstruate” as a replacement for a term familiar since the birth of language and the emergence of conscious life (that would be “woman”), Rowling mocked it. Which is the only both correct and necessary response to these faddish idiocies. Very recently — you will find this hard to believe — when the Scottish police issued a guidance that rapes could be recorded as being carried out by a woman if the perpetrator “identifies as female,” Rowling gave that lunacy an apt Orwell-inspired response: “War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. The Penised Individual Who Raped You Is a Woman.”

Anyway, the backstory & rest at the above LINK.

That's just weird. Well over a third of biological women don't menstruate.
