Rowling has, in the defence of the Maya Forstater, who was fired from her job at a thinktank, after the tweet of a rebuke of the “smart people” that they are claiming to be admired, in which the concept of a person’s identification with a gender that is different than the one they were assigned at birth.
“Dress however you please. Call yourself what you want to do. Sleeping with a consenting adult, you have to have.

“What I’m surprised about is that the very smart people who I admire, who is absolutely pro-science in other areas, and going to be the champion of human rights & women rights-will be tying itself in knots to avoid the truth to say that men can’t change women because it may hurt man’s feelings),” she tweeted at the time.
A Central London employment tribunal will be convened to a preliminary hearing on the question of whether her tweets are able to be protected under the Equality Act 2010, but a judge eventually dismissed that offer.
“I have come to conclude out of this … it is the totality of the evidence, that [Forstater], it is absolutist in its view of sex, and it’s a very important part of her faith, that she was referring to a person of the sex that they are supposed to be, even if it is contrary to the dignity and/or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment. The approach is not worthy of respect in a democratic society,” read the judgment of the Court of James Tayler.
Rowling has been caught in a huge backlash on social media for throwing her opinion into the fight. The Human Rights Campaign, tweeted a rebuke, shortly after her tweet, writing: “Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Non-binary people are non-binary. CC: j. k. Rowling.”
