Activists reported to police after standing in front of the Harry Potter writer’s house


Author JK Rowling has reported three trans activists to police for posting a photo of her address in Edinburgh on Twitter, writes the BBC.

The author, who has previously been accused of transphobia, writes in a tweet that the photo on Twitter showed the three activists standing in front of her home in a way so that the address was visible.

In her tweet, Rowling writes that the activists are trying to stop her from speaking out about women’s rights. And that she has already received so many death threats on that account that she could ‘wallpaper’ her entire home with them.

“Perhaps the best way to strengthen your movement is to stop stalking and threatening women,” the author writes.

Scottish police inform BBC, that they have received a notification and that an investigation is underway.

Not only women menstruate

The ballad began in June 2020, when JK Rowling was accused of being transphobic.

It happened when she linked to a debate article on Twitter with the headline: ‘Creating a more equal world after covid-19 for people who are menstruating’.

In his tweet, the author wrote: »’People who menstruate’. I’m sure there was once a word for that kind of people. Help me, someone. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud? «.

In the subsequent criticism, several pointed out, among other things, that it is not only women who can menstruate. Transgender men can too.

One of the three activists who allowed themselves to be photographed in front of the author’s house and posted the picture on Twitter, writes according to the BBC on Facebook that the tweet has been deleted because the activists have subsequently received a large number of threatening and transphobic messages.
