Oh my goodness, I was so proud of myself over the past weekend.
In case the Murdoch gossip rags hadn’t let you all know, after Salman Rushdie was stabbed. Other authors received death threats, as well. The most well knows was you-know-who. The lovely Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat. Asked other authors who else had received death threats. She made mention of a friend of hers, who had received an odd death threat only the day before, Salman Rushdie’s.
(By the way, did you all hear that the guy who stabbed him. He only read two pages of “The Satanic Verses,”) What a ninny!
Anyway, for some reason only known to themselves, the entire transphobic cult, decided that Joanne Harris mocking Rowling, and was trying to silence her…By asking the question, which authors had received death threats.
Apparently they have already tried to get Joanne Harris, sacked. For being part of a letter that supported trans people. Joanne Harris is the Director, for the Society of Authors, and a popular one two boot.
I actually follow Joanne Harris on the Insta. I don’t know where she lives, but her photos are magical. So when it first happened, I actually argued with the TERFs. I had no idea what they were talking about, because this all went down on Twitter. From what I read though, they all thought Harris was mocking Rowling. I know what about, but, they would never admit it.
This past weekend, I liked another one of her pictures and there were a couple of TERFS harassing her again. Instead of “arguing” with them, I just blocked them instead. It was SO hard to not respond, because it’s all so stupid. But that’s why I didn’t. Because it is all SO stupid. These are all “grown adults” harassing a woman for asking her fellow authors, what kind of death threats they got.
For the last two-three years, the Rowling Cult, have been going on and on and on and on…about how Rowling gets 10’s of death threats a day. Yet, when they show you the “death threats”, they’re crude, yes, but not threats, let alone death ones. A couple of times I’ve asked when are the court cases, because death threats are serious. There’s never been one…and Rowling seems to have actually gotten an legitimate death threat.
So I’m thinking, the reason why they’re accusing Harris of “mocking” Rowling, is because…
Salman Rushdie wasn’t the first novelist to suffer an assassination attempt by someone who hadn’t read their book
