J.K. Rowling Is Right: Sex Is Unchangeable, and ‘It Isn’t Hate to Speak the Truth’

If you didn’t see this, I don’t blame you. After all, Minneapolis lawmakers did just vow to get rid of the city’s police force, so a lot’s been going on. But amid all the inane chaos, something else absurd happened: J.K. Rowling was cancelled.

The famed author of the “Harry Potter” book series drew the ire of the internet’s social justice warriors when she dared to bring up facts: the immutable nature of sex as male and female, exclusively.

Rowling made a logical case, pointing out the glaringly obvious. “If sex isn’t real,” she wrote in part, “the lived reality of women globally is erased.”

And like clockwork, the pile-on commenced. Vicious dissenters quickly pounced on the 54-year-old author, calling her “a transphobic bigot” using her platform “to attack a vulnerable minority.”

Never mind the fact that even some transgender people — members of the very crowd Rowling is presumably offending — agreed with the award-winning novelist. Dr. Debbie Hayton, a transgender-identified female, said many in her community “appreciate” Rowling’s “courage in speaking out against an authoritarian ideology that oppresses women, gay people and trans people.”

“We need to return to reality,” added Hayton. “Sex is real and it is immutable.”

You would think the progressives who bemoan and begrudge the idea of “cultural appropriation” would see the very tangible ways in which suggesting there is no such thing as the unchangeable male and female sexes would be a clear example of exactly that. Alas, that fact is quickly and conveniently glossed over, tossed into the heap of realities too troublesome to acknowledge.

The Oxford Dictionary defines “cultural appropriation” as “the unacknowledged or inappropriate adoption of the customs, practices, ideas, etc. of one people or society by members of another and typically more dominant people or society.”

And the EverydayFeminism website states “appropriation” refers to a “particular power dynamic in which members of a dominant culture take elements from a culture of people who have been systematically oppressed by that dominant group.”

Approximately one-in-five women in the U.S. — 21.3% or 25.5 million —  report having endured completed or attempted rape at some point in their lifetimes. About 2.6% of men report experiencing the same. If that is not abundantly clear evidence of widespread oppression, I’m not sure what is.
