Who do you mean? Sci fi fans and homophobes?
Given that you know full well what I mean, what was the point of this post?
Because I don't know who you were talking about, that's why I asked. Your post was directly after mine talking about the boycott of Orson Scott Card.
Of course you didn't. We were only talking about transphobia, a subject you have strong options on. However could you have had any idea?

JK Rowling is proof that no matter how many times people on the left refer to each other as comrades, if you step a gnats pube outside the bubble of their prescribed orthodoxy they'll try and cut you off and vilify you.

Their comradeship isnt worth the copy of the Morning Star its scribbled on.

You do write some bollocks.
Sorry? What, exactly do you think is bollocks? The fact that Rowling's big blog post was a huge pile of lies? Here's a handy walk through for you:


Not got time for the full walk through? Here's a short form article which includes some of the same points:
This Is The Sequel J.K. Rowling Doesn’t Want You To Read

Or how about:
An open letter to J.K. Rowling


Not sure where the ablism comes in? Here's a direct link:



Was it the bit about getting trans people killed? Plenty of examples of that:
Two Black Transgender Women Were Killed This Week, When Will it End?
Murdered, Hanged And Lynched: 331 Trans People Killed This Year
More than one in four (27 per cent) trans young people have attempted to commit suicide and nine in ten (89 per cent) have thought about it.


How about the bit about being tied up with right wing and anti women, anti abortion groups? Here's a couple of links for you for that:
Fake ‘radical feminist’ group a paid political front for anti-LGBT organization
The rise of anti-trans “radical” feminists, explained


Or was there some other part of my post that you didn't understand?

The same as happened to Card for his homophobia, Lovecraft for his racism, Dahl for his anti semitism or any other famous bigoted author, ie probably not a lot in grand scheme of things. People will probably still read them, people will call the authors out for the shitty things they said and did and probably some will do both.
