    I am sure WB is very, very happy for this tweet to have happened when they dropped the new trailer today.

    You know, it's weird, but I'm starting to think they don't care about sexual assault victims outside of a stick to beat minorities with. :o

    I am so sick of that woman. I’m not even going to go see that Fing movie. None of the recent ones were that good anyway. I probably would’ve gone seen it just on principle, but Fher

    I don't know how someone could so badly misread their audience as her and still keep on going.

    Part of the issue is that transphobia is very popular, very bipartisan in the UK.

    As I said, when your Nazi analogue's goal is to stop the actual Nazis, I would call that a warning sign.

    On the plus side, it is nice to see she's so bothered by the push back, she can't stop doing petty stuff like that. It means it gets to her. I bet it keeps her up at night. Best you can hope for with someone that rich.

    Ehhh, if the result wasn't her doubling down, then maybe.

    The one good thing about her doubling down, is it gets more overt. It makes her look more obviously wrong. She also comes off obessed.

    What, if any, anti-rape/sexual assault advocacy do you think she could or should do to not be considered selective in her outrage against rape?

    She could advocate for all women who've been assaulted. Cis or trans. Multiple studies have shown transgender folk, especially women, to be extremely vulnerable to sexual assault. If her care is for her fellow human beings, especially women, advocate for them. Don't demonize a group which is already vulnerable.

    Let's for one second consider the stupidity of what she wrote. If she's worried about women being assaulted in women's prisons, why has she not considered the little fact that they are far more likely to be assaulted by cis-gender women inmates or guards working at the prison, then any transgender woman inmate? Because it doesn't fit the narrative. How much time does she talk about prison reform, to stop such assaults? Here's a hint, not often. And because that's the case, she doesn't actually care about women being sexually assaulted, outside of a stick to beat the trans community with.

    JK Rowling and Dave Chapelle choosing Trans people as a hill to die on is so strange. Tarnishing your legacy because you have issues with other peoples identity choices is a real headscratcher.
    The UK has many ignorant, out of touch bigots on both ends of the political spectrum sadly. The Conservatives not being allies to minority groups is no surprise but Labour has a fair share of tone death haters as well.
