JK Rowling is a TERF! Or something.

Goody ‘Harry Potter’ Author JK Rowling was seen cavorting in the moonlight with lesbian witches on Twitter so now she is cancelled and her name besmirched. Or some such.

A man named Kevin Maginn, a pornsick 45 year old (of course) straight white male autogynephile IT professional working in video games (naturally) who recently began “identifying” as a “little girl” (as they are wont to do) as part of his heroic mid-life journey of self discovery, revealed yesterday the results of his latest research project: trolling the 700+ accounts that ‘Harry Potter’ author JK Rowling follows on twitter looking for evidence of any that may not be inclined to fully embrace the truthiness of middle aged males reinventing themselves as female youths.

Kevin Maginn, 45 year old male ‘little girl’ and JK Rowling stalker.

As men do when patrolling the social lives of female celebrities whom they stalk, looking for hidden signs that may communicate the woman’s potential affirmation or rejection of themselves as deeply interested and invested utter strangers, Kevin Maginn, now calling himself Kiva Labyrinthine (as one does) decided that some of celebrated author JK Rowling’s social contacts, according to his extensive research, did not meet his approval and did not conform to whatever idea he had in his head about the famous woman, and his imagined relationship to her.

13,000 men “like” closely monitoring social activities of women authors

In years past, Kevin Maginn (Kiva Labyrinthine) would have been put on a stalker list and possibly investigated by law enforcement due to his extraordinary and inappropriate engagement in the social activities of a woman in public life. He certainly would have been placed on a watch list.

What kind of guy investigates 700+ social contacts of a female celebrity? It’s terrifying, really.

But in 2019, Kevin/Kiva is a social justice warrior embraced by other guys who also imagine that they may not be viewed kindly by a female celebrity in the way they believe they deserve. 13+ thousand of them.

It isn’t a mistake that the woman these men target is one of the most prolific and cherished authors of our time. That’s the point.

All women: expect to be surveilled and judged according to an imagined relationship projected by male strangers whom you don’t know. They’re watching you.

Bonus. Actual lols:

    They came for a lesbian fantasy artist the same way, searching not just everyone she followed but her wife’s accounts as well.

    The primary driver of the “cancel” brigade for Terese Nielsen was

    “Evelyn Ramiel is a PhD candidate in the environmental history of Japan at York University. Xeir research focuses on “optical” history—animation studies, photographic representations of nature, microscopy, the politics of queer and trans visibility, the influence of nonhuman microscopic organisms in human bodies—and weird, intimate stories xey find in the archive. Evelyn has also worked on public history walking tours for the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Xey’ll figure out a dissertation topic someday.”

    Which doesn’t sound like a privileged individual, at all, compared to someone with a 30 year hardscrabble existence in the actual arts.

  2. I noticed today that Snopes, the fact-checking site, already has an article about this brouhaha up, titled “Did J.K. Rowling ‘Confirm Her Stance Against Transgender Women’?” Snopes answers their own question with “false”, I was pleased to see, but that was the last pleasing thing about the article. If you thought going through Rowling’s follow list was a mite intrusive, check out what the Snopes dude did; he searched Rowling’s entire twitter feed, and not once did he find her using the terms trans, transgender, LGBT, LGBTQ, transphobia, transphobe, transphobic, TERF, inclusion or exclusion. That’s right, she has never turned in one of her sister witches to be burned at the stake. If you’re not calling someone else a TERF, suspicion just naturally alights on you. It’s suggestive, as the Snopes dude says.

    For most topics, if you have a viewpoint that is considered controversial to some, you are allowed to leave it unexpressed. Not so, any longer, with respect to your feelings about the transwoman, especially if you are female. You must have an opinion, and you must make it public. JK Rowling will be pestered until she says something, and if she says nothing or the wrong thing she will be followed wherever she goes, perhaps getting milk-shaked, and there will be petitions to drop her books and to drop her from polite society. Remaining mum, and not making transgenderism the focus of all your conversations for the next 30 years is not acceptable.

    Anyone who has the time should read Snopes’ article on Rowling. It’s really something. While ostensibly clearing her of admitted terfdom, they have really lit a fire under the poor woman. That is, if anyone actually reads Snopes.

      1. I am sick to death of male bodied trans judging women. This man has nothing better to do than go over 700 tweets looking to find incriminating evidence. Intelligent people, like JK Rowling, like to read tweets from anyone of interest to her and she has a right to do so.

  3. Whether or not JK Rowling is a TERF, the validity of this post is null considering it’s written by someone who is clearly a transphobe. Social justice warriors or not, calling transwomen “guys” makes it quite plain this post is biased. “But in 2019, Kevin/Kiva is a social justice warrior embraced by other guys who also imagine that they may not be viewed kindly by a female celebrity in the way they believe they deserve. 13+ thousand of them.”

  4. To see JK Rowling lock arms with this form of hatred, targeting a minority community while having the ear of millions of young children is deeply saddening. An enormous demographic of her audience is LGBT; Kids who identified with fighting forces of evil for their right to exist, their right to equality, their access to opportunity.

  5. Good thing she turned out not to be a TERF! Let me revise that, as of December 2019. Too bad Kiva was right, and jk is a TERF, even though it proves a vicious transphobe like you to be wrong!
