HOOboy … how long before the Left try to cancel their HERO who wrote their favorite book EVER, Handmaid’s Tale? Someone should probably tell her saying woman is a big no-no now or something because a few hundred people in the country want to erase women since their mere existence is oppressing to them.
Hey man, we don’t buy this crap.
And neither does Margaret Atwood:
Why can’t we say ‘woman’ anymore? https://t.co/ghcQDJgxWE via @torontostar

Guess how this went over?
We know you know people lost their minds but you know, we needed a tie into these ridiculous tweets.

Ok, MAN. Tell a woman she can’t say woman.
We can say women. And we can say people when that’s more accurate and inclusive. Women are people.

Or we can just keep saying women instead of trying to erase them from society.
it should be illegal for writers i like to have twitter accounts

Who are these people?
What??? You can say woman AND you can also say trans man and non-binary person, or if you want to include all in one word you can say pregnant person. Including more people is NOT deleting anyone.

This is so profoundly disappointing to see you signal-boost this

Boosting women is profoundly disappointing.
Welp, that's an unfollow.

Whatever will she do with only 2.1 million followers left?!
Rowling's stated views on trans people are substantially just factually wrong, and this isn't something anyone should support https://t.co/GubuTRVEoS

"In the tiniest of numbers" is itself a cruel erasure. You are quite wrong about the number of people who are assigned female at birth but do not identify as women. I am lucky to count many as friends. If you do not, consider they may not feel safe coming out to you.

The idea that people are "not allowed to say woman" is an anti trans dogwhistle. Adding in alternative language as an option is not insisting the word stop being used, or that people can't use it for themselves.
It's a strawman used to imply trans people are making wild demands.

Anti-trans dog whistle.
This. Is. Ri-damn-diculous.
I truly recoiled when I saw this, because I respect you so much as a writer. However, this is harmful. For one thing, it's there in a headline, so that undercuts the author. For another, using inclusive language doesn't take away from anyone or anything.

She got intelligently ratioed though lol. Atwood goes in the bin now also. 🤦🏽♀️

How pathetic that this is their reaction. They use her book for YEARS to #Resist Trump … maybe instead of trying to cancel her they should listen to her?
Oh, we know they won’t but still.
Remarkable (in a terrifying way): Sharyl Attkisson pulls Orwell excerpt describing Biden and the media PERFECTLY
WHOA: Former Trumper David Weissmann who ‘saw the light’ and flipped Left BOLTS after receipt-filled thread exposes who is REALLY is
Campaign in PANIC! McAuliffe claims he didn’t MEAN parents shouldn’t tell schools what to teach, trips SPECTACULARLY over his own words (and RECORD)
