Did Donald Trump and JK Rowling get impeached in the same week?

It appears so.  Rowling backed up Maya Forstater, awho calls herself a “gender critical” feminist. Maya's contract was dropped for international think tank that campaigns against poverty and inequality, when they found she participated in an anti-trans campaigns online.

On Twitter, Rowling wrote: “Dress however you please,Call yourself whatever you like. Sleep with any consenting adult who’ll have you. Live your best life in peace and security. But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real? #IStandWithMaya #ThisIsNotADrill.”

Of Forstater, the judge reviewing her case concluded her to be innately hostile to transgender people. From the judgement: “I conclude from … the totality of the evidence, that [Forstater] is absolutist in her view of sex and it is a core component of her belief that she will refer to a person by the sex she considered appropriate even if it violates their dignity and/or creates an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment. The approach is not worthy of respect in a democratic society.”

We talk about this, the Rowling transphobia history , Trump impeachment and more....
