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.
