Stephen King Says ‘Trans Women Are Women’ Amid JK Rowling’s Controversy Over ‘Menstruation’ Tweets

king dickhead

Bestselling Harry Potter author Joanne Rowling received serious backlash at the beginning of June after defending sex as a biological category.

Her statements, however, were interpreted as “transphobic” by many transgender activists and criticised by public speakers, including the Harry Potter star himself, Daniel Radcliffe.

The Shining author Stephen King has weighed in on the controversy surrounding British writer JK Rowling by saying in a Twitter reply that “trans women are women”.

Rowling landed in hot water in June after commenting on a Devex article titled “Creating a more equal post-COVID-19 word for people who menstruate”. The writer mockingly asked whether it was “women” that the article was actually referring to. However, she soon received severe condemnation for her remark, with many accusing her of “transphobia” in relation to transgender men, who also menstruate.

Stephen King Calls Oscars Racist, “Rigged in Favor of White Folks”

2018 PEN Literary Gala, New York, USA - 22 May 2018

Stephen King continues to walk back a recent controversial Twitter take about diversity vs. quality at the Academy Awards, writing an op-ed for The Washington Post arguing that the Oscars are “rigged in favor of the white folks.”

“Creative excellence comes from every walk, color, creed, gender and sexual orientation, and it’s made richer and bolder and more exciting by diversity, but it’s defined by being excellent,” King wrote in a piece published Monday.

The best-selling author created a furor earlier this month when, after the Oscars only nominated one actor of color and no female directors, he initially tweeted that “I would never consider diversity in matters of art. Only quality. It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong.”

The backlash was swift: Ava DuVernay, the writer and director of Netflix’s “When They See Us,” said King’s words were “backward and ignorant.”

Young-adult literature is so pervasive that even Stephen King is diving in – though that master of the macabre American spirit was doing YA way before it was cool.

Works like “It,” “Carrie” and the novella “The Body” (aka “Stand by Me,” if you just watch the movies) predated the rise brought on by “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games,” and it’s those kinds of youngsters batting repression that King returns to with his new novel, “The Institute” (Scribner, 576 pp., ★★★ out of four stars).

Twelve-year-old genius Luke Ellis gets whisked away in the middle of the night from his parents and bright future and is stuck in a mysterious place with other latently psychic kids (some telekinetic, others telepathic) to, in effect, save the world. Good intentions, sure, but a nefarious way to go about it, with antagonistic and ruthless adults giving Luke and other children no choice but to bond over their torturous environment and foment revolutionary thoughts. They dream of escape while being tested in the Institute’s relatively cozy Front Half (cigarettes and alcohol for everyone!) and worry about “graduating” to Back Half, a concentration-camplike place with some serious weirdness afoot.

Stephen King shared a tale about the real-life nightmare currently unfolding around the nation as immigration raids announced by President Donald Trump began.

King has been a persistent critic on Twitter of both the president and his supporters. Earlier this year, when longtime Trump associate Roger Stone was arrested, King asked: “How long before Trump supporters realize that you don’t surround yourself with dirty guys unless you’re dirty yourself?”

He’s also among the many critics who have been blocked by the president on Twitter. Last week, a federal appeals court ruled that Trump had been violating the Constitution by doing so.

“I might’ve said he had his head somewhere where a certain yoga position would be necessary to get it there,” King explained last year. “And that was it, man.”

Stephen King explained on Thursday why he believes people shouldn’t be shocked by the college admissions bribery scandal.

Dozens of people, including “Full House” star Lori Loughlin and “Desperate Housewives” actress Felicity Huffman, have been charged with paying bribes to secure spots at prestigious schools for their children.

Many tweeters who responded said that the scandal was not solely symptomatic of Trump’s presidency, and that equivalent illegal behavior had been taking place “for years.”

Author Stephen King said the arrest Friday of Roger Stone, a longtime associate of President Donald Trump, should make one thing clear.

Stone, who served briefly as a Trump campaign aide in 2015 and remained an informal adviser afterward, was charged with seven counts including lying, obstruction of an official proceeding and witness tampering.

Stone is just the latest to be indicted in connection with the Robert Mueller investigation, which has led to guilty pleas from former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, among others.

Many stars apparently couldn’t help but use McCain’s passing to whip up more anti-Trump hatred.

“John McCain: American patriot, war hero. Donald Trump: Draft-dodging weasel,” wrote author Stephen King.

“Take his name out of your mouth you piece of shit. You maligned his military service while you did everything to avoid serving. You attacked him repeatedly while you knew he was dying. And you cozied up to Putin while he did everything he could to oppose him. Fuck You,” wrote Kathy Griffin.

When it comes to taking down Trump on Twitter, Stephen King regularly employs his full bag of writer’s tricks to make sure the task is carried out as efficiently as possible.

Sometimes, though, all he needs is a well-placed quote.
Following Trump and Putin’s summit in Helsinki earlier this week, the horror master took to Twitter to quote George Orwell.
