The JK Rowling Problem.

I think we can all agree, the Harry Potter stories were pretty damned good.  She’s a good writer. OK. Got it.

There’s a problem, though. JK’s recent rants about trans people have all the hallmarks of someone who has got hold of an issue, and even though they know it’s wrong, they just can’t put it down. Whether it’s arrogance, or ignorance, she simply can’t put it down and move on. And she digs herself deeper and deeper into a hole, retweeting transphobic tweets, seemingly surprised that many people feel betrayed by her choice to echo hate speech and support bigots online.

Many of us read her stories to our children and when seeing her recent rambling vitriol feel personally insulted. Sadly with all her millions, she has not acquired good judgement. Instead she bleats out her messages unfiltered, as though she’s talking to an audience of a few dozen. Instead her massive megaphone influences millions.

As she continues to sound off like the demented neighbourhood weirdo, who doubtless has 27 cats in her house and no friends, she broadcasts sometimes carefully worded – but damaging and hateful content – to her 15 million followers.

There is something you can do about it, though. I don’t condone book burning, as much as it seems tempting in this case. Instead I suggest you go and get all those JK Rowling books, and advertise them on Facebook Marketplace, or wherever you choose to sell them, and then donate the proceeds to a trans friendly charity. Taking her words and putting them to work for us is about the only positive thing one can do. When you advertise them be sure to mention that you’re donating the proceeds to a trans friendly charity. Here are a few suggestions that may be suitable: –

The Brianna Ghey Story –

Mathew Shepherd Foundation – The Nex Benedict Story –

The Trevor Project


JK Rowling’s stories were entertaining in the past. Her recent forays into fiction have been uninspired, as she ironically writes under a masculine pen name ‘Robert Galbraith’. How screwed up is that? However, like the court jester she once was, we can laugh at her antics, but that doesn’t mean we’d take advice from her about issues like human rights, thank you very much!

The Electric GRID Is Under ATTACK (But It’s Not From EVs).

For what feels like an age, much doom and gloom has been cast concerning the impact of electric vehicles on the electrical grid. And on this channel, we’ve done our best to bust those myths. …But now it’s happening.

The grid is under more immediate threat. Not from EV drivers, but from AI and new clean energy production facilities.

We explain all!

From Anita Bryant’s crusade against the gays, to the infiltration of the religious right and moral majority into presidential politics via Reagan, to the election of Donald Trump and the growth of the white supremacy movement in the United States, the anti-trans fervor gripping the United States is the culmination of many disparate hateful groups and movements coming to fruition all at the same time. This is Why Conservatives Are So Obsessed With Trans Kids.

If you’re early in your gender transition, maybe even just questioning your gender for the first time, where should you go from here?

Well, of course, there is no one “correct” path, but taking some time to reflect on and explore your gender identity can be a great starting point. You might be saying, this sounds great and all but what does that actually look like?

I put together a series of questions that help kickstart the gender reflection process, in the hopes of helping you deepen your understanding of your gender and hopefully gain additional clarity in trying to answer questions like “Am I trans, and if so, how do I know?”
