The world's most powerful TERF has spoken out yet again.
JK Rowling's anti-trans agenda has once again emerged online, this time in the form of an 11-tweet thread.
The most recent fiasco began on Sunday, July 5th, when Rowling liked a tweet that compared hormone prescriptions to antidepressants and commented, "Hormone prescriptions are the new anti depressants. Yes they are sometimes necessary and lifesaving, but they should be a last resort. Pure laziness for those who would rather medicate than put in the time and effort to heal people's minds."

It should be obvious that much of fashion and music as we know it today was invented by Black people. We (hopefully) all know by now that we can no longer accept Blackface and use of the n-word by non-Black people as the norm—and Internet users have tried "canceling" offenders in the public eye, with varying degrees of success.
