Me and my wife were talking about JKR's transphobia because of some recent discussion going around, regarding her old comments of like "if I had known what a trans person was back then, i would've transitioned". People have taken it to mean that poor, misguided Joan is in the closet and because she can't handle it she's lashing out. Possibly they are saying that, I really have not put the effort to look into it, for I doth noth care.
My wife was saying that, since JKR grew up in the 70s, what she meant by those comments was simply that being a man would've been a lot easier in a man's world. I was incredulous at first, and went on to ask if she really thought JKR had no concept of 'identity' with regards to gender and gender transition. She answered yeah, duh, she seems like a pretty superficial and stupid person, doesn't she? To her being transgender is just about reaping the social benefit, not anything that fundamentally has to do with the self.
A light bulb lit up inside my head: the english cult of the class system has rotted the woman's brain to the point where she cannot conceive of a human that does not operate on principles of social mobility, whether it be along economic or gender lines. As for her, so for the rest of the TERFs. The english class system is the reason why it's "TERF island" over there.
My completely pointless thought of the day is that the English are a vile race that should be exterminated like vermin.
