Description

This weekend was the second time in recent months that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling tweeted comments that have been criticized for being transphobic. Though her stance might seem surprising coming from a beloved children’s author who writes about inclusivity, it starts to make more sense when you look at the state of mainstream feminism in the U.K., where Rowling is from. Today, we’re joined by Vox politics reporter Katelyn Burns to talk about the accusations of transphobia that have been swirling around Rowling for awhile, and what it means when people accuse her of being a TERF.
