Recently, Rowling has been accused of transphobia — the writer appeared in the scandal center because of his reaction to the article “Opinion: after COVID–19 need to create a more equitable world for people who are menstruating”.
“People who are menstruating. I’m sure to refer to these people is already a word. Somebody help me,” she wrote in her Twitter, also adding some distorted form of the word “women” (Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud). After this tweet, Rowling has been criticised for intolerance of transgender and genderqueer.
A few days later the focus of attention of Internet users shifted to the new Frank essay Joan, in which she admitted that he had been sexually abused when she was about 20 years.
“I never spoke publicly about what he has experienced violence. Not because I’m ashamed of what happened to me, but because of the memories of what happened hurt me. I say this now not in order to arouse someone’s compassion, and to support women with a history similar to mine,” wrote the author of a series of books about Harry Potter. The identity of the rapist, she did not disclose, but noted that the man took advantage of her position.
Rowling also admitted that she suffered from domestic violence in my first marriage to George Arantium.
“I barely managed to survive their brutal first marriage, but now I’m married to a very nice person,” she said.
