Cynthia Nixon: JK Rowling's transgender comments 'really painful' for her transgender son

Cynthia Nixon says her

The latest backlash comes upon the release of her new book, Troubled Blood, which tells the story of a cis male serial killer who dresses as a woman to kill his cis female victims.

"Like.how much more blatantly does Rowling have to out herself as a transphobe for y'all to stop buying her books and publishers to drop her?" Cormoran Strike solving a cold case from 1974, where a woman was believed to be killed by a "transvestite serial killer".

More recently, the synopsis for her new book Troubled Blood was brought to the attention of onlookers and fans. According to reviewer Jake Kerridge, the book presents troubling images of murderous men dressed up as women, and he "wonders what critics of Rowling's stance on trans issues will make of [the] book". I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives.

Rowling's initial fame came as a result of Harry Potter, which during the Noughties was turned into eight blockbuster movies, seeing the writer earn millions in royalties.

Earlier this year, Rowling caused controversy with a series of harmful tweets - and later a 3,600 word essay on her website - about trans people, arguing that only women menstruate and weighing in on the exhausted "trans bathroom" debate.

Transgender activists are outraged at the newest book by J.K. Rowling, the famed "Harry Potter" creator, because they say it will create more antagonism and anger against the transgender community.

J.K. Rowling has come back into the spotlight after trending on Twitter today, September 14th, under the hashtag #RIPJKRowling.

In June, Rowling drew sharp criticism for passing judgment on a Devex op-ed about healthcare inequality that used the phrase "people who menstruate" to be more inclusive. "Someone help me out".

"The response, so far, has been negative, with "#RIPJKRowling" trending on Twitter, as she's called out with a mix of anger and exasperation - not only for using the well-worn and damaging trope of the transgender serial killer (á la Psycho, Dressed to Kill, Silence of the Lambs and more) in her new book, but for doing so on the heels of her most recent public row about transgender identity, which is being viewed by her critics as a freakish doubling down.

Robbie Coltrane, who played gamekeeper Hagrid in the Harry Potter films, has suggested people are too easily offended and said he does not find Rowling's views offensive. The author was subsequently criticised for liking a tweet that pejoratively compared hormone therapy to anti-depressants. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?" She later added, "If sex isn't real, there's no same-sex attraction. That's me talking like a grumpy old man, but you just think, "Oh, get over yourself. It isn't hate to speak the truth".

Speaking to Radio Times, he said "I don't think what she said was offensive really". I'd march with you if you were discriminated against on the basis of being trans.
