Two people defying the current trend, one of them a standard-issue liberal on other issues, the other the most sterling example of what an American politician should be since John Adams. JK Rowling opens the ball.
Mega-author J.K. Rowling is standing up relentlessly for all people who are harmed by the transgenderism mania afflicting our society. A reliable liberal, Rowling has always been gay-friendly, feminist, and even sympathetic to transgenderism in principle. But transgenderism is a horrible concept in practice, despite Big Left’s efforts to make it appear life-saving and glamorous. Rowling is among the growing number of people speaking out against it and standing up for the countless people it has harmed.
Far right to little boy wearing a dress: take that off, it means you're not a real man.
Gender identity theorists: wanting to wear dresses means you're really a girl.
Radical feminists: boys can wear dresses, you look great!
Which of these two positions are most alike, Andrew? https://t.co/nR0mfguefJ

Rowling’s public statements on this issue have all been modest and mild, not really confrontational at all. Nevertheless, the frothing rage-junkies of the Batshit Left have blown their stack frenetically after each one, hurling big shitballs of calumny, incoherence, and daylight barking madness, peppered throughout with threats of violence and personal insults so outrageous they amount to arguments for confining them all to a nearby loony bin and medicating them into drooling catatonia, if only to neutralize the threat they pose to civil order and comity.
The incomparable Ron DeSantis, on the other hand, confronts the issue pic.twitter.com/tBmFxFE3q6

Before he issued the proclamation, DeSantis said Weyant is “an absolute superstar and she had the fastest time, of any woman in college athletics. Now the NCAA is basically taking efforts to destroy women’s athletics. They’re trying to undermine the integrity of the competition and they’re crowning somebody else the woman’s champion and we think that’s wrong.”
DeSantis signed a law in 2021 disallowing biological males from competing in women’s sports in Florida.
The Florida governor is bucking the trend. Big Tech, Big Media, and their law-making handmaidens have punished people for stating that men aren’t women.
The words “genius,” “courageous,” and “hero” get tossed about far too casually these days. The Left’s extravagant deployment of these poor abused words as cudgels to bludgeon their opponents into either silence or active endorsement of their pet projects has rendered them almost meaningless. Not in DeSantis’s case, though; no matter how many times they’re said of him, it could never be too much in my book. They’ll continue to resonate sweetly in my ears like the biggest gong in Asia entire as pure, full-strength Truth. His every successive utterance or action just makes me love the guy more.
