‘Harry Potter’ author in trouble with the left again after International Women’s Day message

Author J.K. Rowling can’t catch a break, even when she is trying to celebrate International Women’s Day.

Her most recent remarks that sent her trending on Twitter were a response to Scotland’s Gender Recognition Reform Bill amendments, which would change language and make gender reassignments easier. Rowling is an outspoken critic of the legislation, which has led many on the far-left side of the aisle to label her “transphobic” and a “TERF” (transgender exclusionary radical feminist.)

Identifying cases in which is it incredibly important to differentiate between genders, such as in the instance of those “seeking help after male violence/rape and incarcerated women,” Rowling tagged politicians Nicola Sturgeon who has been instrumental in trying to get the bill passed.

She also poked at the Labour Party and threw in a bit of a “Harry Potter” reference as well.

When Sturgeon was asked about Rowling’s comments and concerns, the politician brushed them off in favor of placating the LGBT community.

“She’s clearly free to express her opinion, as am I, as is everybody. But that’s not what this debate is about,” Sturgeon said, claiming that the bill is supposed to make it “less traumatic and inhumane for trans people, one of the most stigmatized minorities in our society. It doesn’t give trans people any more rights, doesn’t give trans people one single additional right that they don’t have right now. Nor does it take away from women any of the current existing rights that women have under the Equalities Act.”

Given the sheer amount of opposition she’s faced for having her beliefs, a weaker celebrity may have caved to the pressure. But Rowling isn’t about to let that happen.

Despite the outspoken opposition to her ideology, the world-famous author isn’t without her supporters:
