So, I went on Twitter.
JKRowling has signed a letter, basically to say that the “cancel culture” is ridiculous. I mean, she just wants to cancel transpeople altogether, and uses her massive platform to do so. But yeah, people who are calling her out for her bigotry are the ones with problem? Her whole tweet was about how their should be freedom of thought and speech.
There is, you dumb ass…You can say whatever you want.
It does not mean, you get a free pass. It does not mean that no one can say anything to you. It does mean that calling you out on your bigotry, people are debating you. In fact, the point of opposition and debate, is for people to talk who don’t agree. Debate is not talking with people who agree with you.
The interesting thing I saw in the comments though, was the amount of Brexiteers and Trump Supporters. Now, too me, that would make me go “Oh, I’ve gone and stuffed up” I doubt that Rowling thinks that.
That’s what frustrates me though, people just don’t THINK anymore. They say something without thinking about it. There were so many Trump Supporters who were saying they apologise for the extreme left. We don’t need the far-right deplorable’s to apologise for us, being able to accept people. If by being “extreme” means you can accept people, then call me…
Do these “people” like JKRowling ever just THINK, maybe if she wasn’t being so horrible, then she wouldn’t be “cancelled?”. I didn’t want to see Magic Beasts with Depp, I certainly wont be seeing, if they do bring out another.
Do they even see the irony of yelling “Freedom”? While literally trying to cancel and get rid of a whole group of people, because they don’t like them. One person who said that transpeople should not allowed to be, a comment supporting them said and I quote “She’s not saying they can’t be who they want to be”. Which is LITERALLY what she was saying, it is literally what she is trying to stop them for being. How is that not saying that people can’t be who they want too be?
