How J.K. Rowling Became Dolores Umbridge

This week, we’re discussing the New York Times’s openly (and now defiantly) anti-transgender coverage. Specifically, writer Pamela Paul wrote an op-ed titled “In Defense of J.K. Rowling,” where she absurdly depicted the billionaire author as a victim on par with Salman Rushdie. Trans people asserting their right to exist are obviously not issuing a fatwa against their oppressors.

This week's chat starts at 12 pm PT/3 pm ET. Like, share, subscribe, pitch us some dollars for doughnuts on Patreon. This will become the OPEN THREAD after the chat ends, so we’d appreciate sticking to topic until then.
