Someone has defaced JK’s golden handprints outside city chambers In Edinburgh with red paint and a pride flag.
Pink News are all over it saying she has blood on her hands.

I’m shaking with anger.
I dreamed last night that she was attacked by a mob.
She’s got the best security money can buy. Thank goodness. The TRA’s are inciting their own violence.

Sick Twats.

I hope that's given lots of sunlight, and a lot of soap too.

NeurotrashWarrior Sun 12-Jul-20 12:01:21

Oops I mis read and thought it said defecated...

Still twats. And still shows the fascism they're so fond of accusing others of.

What a dick thing to do.

Hopefully lots and lots of people see it before it is cleaned off.

This is so over the top. Women acting this way would be called hysterical.

EdgeOfACoin Sun 12-Jul-20 12:03:42

Pink News are a disgrace.

Throwing paint on the street that some poor council worker will have to scrub off, how stunning and brave.

I think the word we're all looking for is "histrionic". When one displays it to a notable extent it's generally considered to be a form of personality disorder. Transitioning is unlikely to serve as effective therapy.

This reminds me of the hands of the 15 child brides who were killed by burning when when their princely husband died, in the palace in Jodhpur.

They just make themselves look like the aggressive bullies they are. They more they do this sort of thing, the more everyone normal sees that they are scum. They are losing the argument and know it. All they have is slurs and violent acts and let’s face it, it’s all they have EVER had. We have known it for years and now everyday people are seeing it too. Good job morons!! Carry on destroying, swearing, shutting down debate, being misogynists and being men.

I am so fucking bored of people claiming to be adults, behaving like spoilt children having a tantrum.

Yet behaviour I would not tolerate in my 6 year old (not just this! DC knows not to vandalise things. All the childish toy throwing and stropping), is being touted as fucking brave, courageous, fighting against oppression. And the people who argue against it are the ones being cunts... Aye. Right.

It's not. That's a fucking insult to those who have fought oppression. It's nothing but pathetic little prats, with no real life achievements, trying to get a pat on the fucking head from their friends, because they have nothing of worth in their shitty little lives to feel real pride in.

How disgusting. Appalling behaviour, shows them up to be the vile bullies we always knew they were.

NearlyGranny Sun 12-Jul-20 12:15:22

Well, you know, with this futile gesture, they've harmed her exactly as much as she's harmed them: not a bit.

I hope they've got it out of their system now. These extreme TRA people seem to have a bit of a thing about blood one way or another, wanting to punch "T***S" in their faces, faking menstrual blood with red glitter on real tampons and now this. Interesting.

Do you have a link for this, I can't see anything about it anywhere?

ThatsHowWeRowl Sun 12-Jul-20 12:18:13

I can't see a single thing on Pink News's social media about this, nor when I type in JK Rowling or 'golden handprints' into twitter?

CuriousaboutSamphire Sun 12-Jul-20 12:21:10

If you look on Google you will find local papers and PN carrying the story!

Why only look at SM?

CuriousaboutSamphire Sun 12-Jul-20 12:22:12

Even Reddit and The Mirror are carrying it!

endofthelinefinally Sun 12-Jul-20 12:24:41

I wonder if the BBC misreporting what she wrote has contributed to this?

ThatsHowWeRowl Sun 12-Jul-20 12:27:39

Fair enough, I can see it on PN now (although not the Mirror?) I just thought, with social media how it is these days, there would already be something about it on Twitter or the OP would have a link?

NotBadConsidering Sun 12-Jul-20 12:28:50


To avoid having to click on PN.

Michelleoftheresistance Sun 12-Jul-20 12:30:02

Childish, thuggish.

ThatsHowWeRowl Sun 12-Jul-20 12:30:42

Thanks NotBadConsidering

Christ, what a shitty thing to do.

Xenia Sun 12-Jul-20 12:31:45

We do need to prosecute these criminal damage cases. it is not okay no matter how strongly you feel to take down any statue whether to Nelson M, a slave trader or anyone without following the law, nor to cause graffiti even if you are Banksy. if we all start to pick and choose which laws to respect we have chaos.

TheProdigalKittensReturn Sun 12-Jul-20 12:32:27

Whoever planned that is really bad at symbolism. They intended "blood on her hands" but the way it's going to read to anyone not already indoctrinated is "holy shit they're so angry with Rowling that they're symbolically dousing her in blood". It doesn't come across as "woe is vulnerable us", it comes across as a clear and frankly rather deranged threat.

Yes kittens. But logic and self awareness have never been TRA strong points.
