Girl That Was Bullied Out Of School Receives Support From JK Rowling

By Jessica Marie Baumgartner | 1 month ago


A teenage girl in the UK was recently harassed for acknowledging that biological sex is real. The threats and bullying got so bad that she left her school. This is not uncommon, as trans rights and women’s rights continue to clash on many levels, and so, notable author J. K. Rowling felt the need to step in and offer her support.

Rowling’s popularity with younger generations has continued as her Harry Potter series is considered a beloved children’s classic. While identity politics take over classrooms in western culture, she has proudly spoken up for the rights of biological females. This has become controversial in an age where trans activists push to allow biological males to compete in women’s sports, gain acknowledgment as female professionals (and win women’s awards for business and the arts), and even fight to allow criminal men who identify as women to be placed into women’s prisons — putting female prisoners at risk of rape. J.K. Rowling has come under fire many times for her pushback against these policies, and like her, the student in question has as well. 

The student in question sat through a school presentation on transphobia. A known LGBTQ+ guest speaker was brought in, but the girl disagreed with what she was being taught. She noted that the speaker implied that “critical theory took precedence over biological reality.” The student in question raised her concerns and was addressed by the speaker. She was told that trans people in the UK don’t have rights. The student apologized if her question sounded rude and she and the speaker ended their discourse in a respectful manner. Unfortunately what took place afterward was not so respectful, and that led to defense by J.K. Rowling.

After the presentation was over, the student went back to class, but found herself surrounded by about 60 students who screamed, swore, and spat at her. The verbal attack was so threatening that she was forced to escape before collapsing. Teachers offered her their support at first, but once the angry mob started claiming that she was transphobic — for merely questioning the importance of theories over biology —  she was then told she would have to be isolated from the other students and study in the library if she continued to express such controversial thoughts. This form of badgering is something many women are facing from trans activists and allies. It is something that has gotten many biological females, like J.K. Rowling, labeled as T.E.R.F.s (Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists).

There was once a time when asking questions in schools was not only accepted but encouraged. Allowing students to explore and freely express their desires to properly understand the entirety of an issue or subject allowed them to think critically and display tolerance and respect for other students who disagreed with them. The incident in question is a perfect example of why so many families in the United States have left the public education system and why many women in the UK are no longer supporting radical transgender ideologies. When a famous author like J.K. Rowling must point out the failures of a country’s education system in order to allow a teenage girl to be safe and learn without threats, it reveals that many schools are more focused on politics than academics.
