The author recently spoke out about trolling that she received for her gender-related comments.
She shared the story on Twitter of a follower who had sent her a pipe bomb.
To her 14 million fans, she wrote: “To be honest, you can’t get women fired, arrested, or dropped by their publisher. Cancelling her books only increased her sales, so there really is only one place.”
Rowling shared her response to a fan asking what Rowling was talking about.
The pair had written: “Is it still due to her comments regarding the safety of women using toilets/changing rooms if men are able to use them simply by identifying as a female?”
Rowling continued, “Yes, but now, hundreds of transactivists have threatened to beat me, rape and assassinate me. I’ve realized that this movement poses absolutely no risk for women.”
The author shared a tweet from last year that some social media users called “transphobic.”
It read, “People who have their periods.”
