"Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling faced another backlash Saturday after issuing a cheeky tweet on sex and gender that opened up a new chapter in her ongoing feud with LGBT advocates.
"If sex isnt real, theres no same-sex attraction," Rowling tweeted to her 14.5 million followers. "If sex isnt real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isnt hate to speak the truth."
Rowling tweeted those comments around 6 p.m. ET. Within an hour, she was trending on Twitter and received thousands of responses.
In another tweet, the U.K.-based author criticized a prominent idea among the left -- that people can menstruate if they're not women. "People who menstruate," she tweeted, linking to an op-ed with that phrasing. "Im sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?" she asked sarcastically.

Speaking the truth shows hate of the collective...
Truth is hate to
Those who hate Truth
Been on the back of my truck for a while now.
Another loser who couldn’t pedal fast enough to the Left, and got kicked out of the race. She should step aside gracefully and enjoy her consolation prize.
Cults hate the truth. That’s why they isolate their members from their families and the outside world.
What do you expect from a satanic worshiper.
Oh... Cultural marxists will hate that...
Its not advancing the deconstruction.
Yup, stating the obvious - that a man who wants to be a woman or visa versa - has some mental problems, is verboten.
I’m not saying that they should be treated badly, or treated at all. But, sorry, they have some problems.
OK, she knows the truth and spoke out and WILL BE attacked.
The question is will she stand by her statement or is she going to do a Drew Brees?
We need people who are not afraid to stand for the truth and aren’t afraid to stay firm even if it hits them where it hurts the hardest— their income stream.
WOW is she in for a rude awakening...
LOL! Slapped eh. The truth is whatever the liberals declare it to be. Next thing will be not enough POC in her books. Blatant tokenism? Guess hating Trump just ain’t enough anymore.
Shes hardly a conservative, but now she feels what it’s like to be one.
The same wingnuts who believe men can menstruate will mock a conservative for being “anti-science”. Talk about alternate reality.
I think she first brought this up a few months ago, so yes, so far she’s sticking to it.
I like the one remark in the comments section that says “Democrats are the party of science. Except for biology, apparently.”
Rowling is intriguing as a writer. I always thought that the Harry Potter books were more conservative than they get credit for. Deathly Hallows had some pretty strong Christian metaphor to it. Stronger than most books on the market these days.
Truth was thrown out of the car miles ago in our Thelma-and-Louise ride into the abyss.
how come it is ok for Bruce Jenner to “identify” as female, but wrong for Rachel Dolezal to “identify” as black.
Could anyone have imagined 30 years ago that the left would become this insane? Now it is controversial and “hate” to recognize the most fundamental facts of biology.
