I had no idea of this situation with J.K. Rowlings and I thank you so much for this informative article. Transphobia IS hatred and most certainly should not be applauded. It never ceases to amaze me how some people on this planet believe that only those who look like them, think like them, and love as they do are the only ones worthy to thrive. I'm grateful for writers such as yourself that speak out against this hatred and speak truth to power. Thank you so much.
