As Twitchy reported earlier, Vox did its Vox thing by publishing a piece asking if “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling had destroyed the legacy of “Harry Potter” with a single, transphobic tweet. This is after Rowling tweeted, #IStandWithMaya, meaning Maya Forstater, a British woman who was fired, and her firing upheld by a tribunal, for tweeting “absolutist” things about there being two distinct biological sexes. Here’s Rowling again and her “transphobic” tweet that’s ruined “Harry Potter” for generations:
Dress however you please.
Call yourself whatever you like.
Sleep with any consenting adult who’ll have you.
Live your best life in peace and security.
But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real? #IStandWithMaya #ThisIsNotADrill

The author of that piece is loving the clicks — and the ratio — which she attributed to “Nazis” reading her article.
Vox is getting totally ratioed by Nazis over my JKR article, so to spite them all, please click on it one more time: https://t.co/tQPBw0jRl5

That is quite a ratio — we’d heard horror stories of how many Nazis there are on Twitter, but we didn’t know there were that many.

Right. Nazis. That’s who’s ratioing it.

“Everyone who disagrees with me is a Nazi”.
— EducatëdHillbilly™ (@RobProvince) December 20, 2019
Is this what’s the left have degraded themselves to now? Calling anybody who disagrees with them a “Nazi”?
It’s little wonder why more people are utterly confused when it comes to identifying with politics. Utterly ridiculous.

I don’t see how calling people Nazis is a weapon of love

Nah, it's just people who are sick of being told that everything is a form of bigotry.

J. K. Rowling is actually right for once.

U love the art she toiled over for years but can’t be ok with her having one different opinion. Bigoted af.
— QueenVee (@SmartyMcpharty) December 20, 2019
Love that you think this tweet and that article are "journalism" and not straight up fringe editorializing.

This feels like a cry for attention.

This may be the saddest thing I've seen on this site and that says something.

You are closer to being a Nazi than most of the people you consider Nazis.

Must be tough living in a delusional fantasy world, where everyone with somewhat traditional values is a Nazi. Learn to code

Name me which Allied power fought for "trans rights"?

So, the nazis killed all those jews because they believed that there are only two sexes?
— Diogenes El Cínico (@DioCinicoXXX) December 20, 2019
Read some books and learn some history and then maybe, just maybe, you will stop calling people nazis. It diminishes the suffering of millions of Jews.

You're a clown.

Believing biological facts makes you a #Nazi now? Call me Hitler, I guess.
— Tyler Hand (@TylerEHand) December 20, 2019
So being pro-science and pro-truth makes you a Nazi now?
This is just sad. 30 years from now, people will look back at this outrage culture and ask "what were they thinking?"
— Avram Meitner (@AvramMeitner) December 20, 2019
No, it's just people who are sick of your garbage, finally letting you know.
— Elenti (@ScarletElenti) December 20, 2019
The article absolutely sucks, and calling all of us Nazi is not going to help a bit. Moron.

You wrote a bad article and you should feel bad

Just out of curiosity, why do so many Nazis read Vox?

Saving this for your “I’ve been laid off tweet”

'Yeah, go with this': Vox suggests that J.K. Rowling 'just [destroyed] the legacy of Harry Potter with a single, transphobic tweet' https://t.co/gUArpVrzqB
