As Twitchy told you yesterday, celebrated author J.K. Rowling came under fire from the Outrage Brigade for daring to defend a fellow author’s contention that men and women are biologically different, pointing out that “sex is real”:
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

What you may not have realized is that reliably liberal actor Mark Hamill liked Rowling’s tweet. Well, it’s one thing for the creator of “Harry Potter” to be “transphobic,” but Luke Skywalker? That’s a crime of intergalactic proportions. Which is why he had to be made to pay dearly:

Pathetic, this is:
Ignorance is no excuse, but I liked the tweet without understanding what the last line or hashtags meant. It was the 1st 4 lines I liked & I didn't realize it had any transphobic connotation. https://t.co/vefcuZEQF9

Here’s a thought, Mark: You “didn’t realize it had any transphobic connotation” because it doesn’t have any transphobic connotation. Maya Forstater’s tweets weren’t transphobic, J.K. Rowling’s tweet wasn’t transphobic, and pointing out that men and women are different is not transphobic.
This is all so silly.

It's not "transphobic." Stand with JKR and LGB people.

Reality isn't transphobic. I'm a trans woman and I agree with her.

On the other hand:
He doesn’t have as much f*ck you money as she does. He also might be a giant p*ssy.
