Initially I was team Rowling but apparently her newest book is about a transvestite serial killer.  She seems pretty bent on villainizing transwomen and othering them. 

I still love her and agree with her about some of the points she has raised, but I can no longer support that her agenda is just about feminism.

As for Carano, I don't put my pronouns in any of my bios but I don't go out of my way to antagonise people either and then play victim.

And so was Silence of the Lambs.  I don't think any character should be taboo.  Now no one can ever write about black, gay or transgender serial killers because.... they're discriminated against in real life?  hmmm...   that's just wrong.  Don't you ever draw a cartoon of Mohammed...

Maybe with JK, once you tell her she can't write something, she's going to tell you to **** off.  A gay Dumbledore (sp?) is an example, I think.
