Author J.K. Rowling has lambasted what she calls “certain celebrities” who supported a British charity that supports transgender individuals now that one former leader of the charity has been linked to a group that assists pedophiles.
Rowling, the author of the “Harry Potter” series and other works, has been firm in her criticism of the transgender movement, saying that it is often unfair to women.
Rowling was reacting to a report in the Times of London that Dr. Jacob Breslow, a trustee of the charity Mermaids, resigned after it was revealed he spoke to the group B4U-ACT.
The group assists “self-identified individuals . . . who are sexually attracted to children and desire such assistance,” the Times reported.
The Times report noted that Britain’s Charity Commission was looking into reports the group was giving out chest binders to children as young as 13 and 14. The charity is also under scrutiny for how it handles online conversations about issues such as experimental drug treatments and medical transition.
Rowling took them to task in a series of tweets.
“We’ve now learned that Mermaids appointed a paedophilia apologist as Trustee and that their online moderator encouraged kids to move onto a platform notorious for sexual exploitation. This is a charity that’s achieved unprecedented influence in the UK,” she wrote.
They couldn’t have achieved it without the money and public support of certain corporations and celebrities, who eagerly boosted them even though the red flags have been there for years. Mermaids’ fingers were all over the Tavistock Gender Identity Clinic debacle. 3/5
