I know Newsthump is satire but they way they are portraying JKR in this is atrocious

She should sue them. I’m so angry that when women stand up their words get twisted like this

Wow, that's very badly written.

Can't imagine anyone but the most desperate and needy validation addicts getting anything out of it.

What? The explanations s/he is giving are the complete opposite of what is being said! What a tool..
Example 'ive never met a dog I don't like' means I hate dogs...ermm, to quote my 2 y/o DD, don't think so!

That's not satire. It's defamation.

I honestly hope she sues them.

There are some moronic comments on the post too. I usually find newsthump pretty good but this is awful.

That's a really bad article.

Could she sue them? Maybe then we'd actually get an official answer to "what did she say that was transphobic?" seeing as no one can seem to point it out. It'd be amazing to see a court rubbish the transphobe label that's been slapped on her.

Rowling has vehemently denied accusations of being “anti-trans”, insisting that she simply doesn’t think their life experiences are valid or deserving of respect.

That's not satire. It's not funny at all, and it's not even remotely close to what she said.

I hope JKR sees it and takes action, I really do.

Totally lame

Almost all the Facebook comments on this are by white men.

Nasty little misogynists (who know being sexist Isn't Very Left Wing) just loving the chance to vent their hatred of women, while simultaneously claiming to be virtuously woke.

I wouldn't worry too much about it - it's a weak 'comedy' article from a poor comedy site.
It's supposed to be funny,* it's not supposed to be taken as truth. It's such poor article I'm not even sure if the target is supposed to be JKR or trans activists. Or both.

*It fails
