Hey JK, we'll publish you

This futher underlines the central thesis of Corporate Cancer for even the most slow to grasp the concepts involved: SJWs do not care in the slightest about business or corporate revenue:
Publishing staff working on JK Rowling’s latest book threatened to down tools yesterday in protest at her views on gender. The Harry Potter author, 54, has endured a storm of protest since expressing ‘deep concerns’ about transgender activism in an essay last week in which she also described being a victim of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Those criticising her have included movie stars she helped make famous.

It led to headlines such as ‘Bonfire of JK Rowling’ as the multi-million-pound empire she created threatened to turn against her.

Yesterday morning at publishing house Hachette, several of those involved in Miss Rowling’s new children’s book, The Ickabog, are said to have staged their own rebellion during a heated meeting. One source said: ‘Staff in the children’s department at Hachette announced they were no longer prepared to work on the book.
At this rate, Castalia will be one of the Big Three publishers before the final collapse of the United States into multipartite ethno-cultural war. SJWs act like they are demon-possessed because they are true believers in a de facto satanic neo-religious philosophy.

The thought-policing of authors even extends to the fans:
The editor of the world's biggest Harry Potter fan site has urged supporters to stop buying JK Rowling's books and films over the author's 'transphobia' row.

Even a year ago, I would say the very notion of JK Rowling accepting that offer was the final sign of you going completely insane with ambition. Given how quickly she's becoming radioactive to the NY elite nowadays, you could actually manage it. The difference between genius and insanity...

Blogger Matt Robison June 16, 2020 8:41 AM  

Rowling will be fine. She has FU money, if anyone does, and of course those complaining are a minority.

Will be very interesting to watch the fallout, though. If Hachette doesn't just fire all of the staff refusing to work on a near-certain bestseller, they deserve to die. This has been entertaining.

JKR should stand firmly against the incoherent rabble - she has enough financial might to ignore them. Although not interested in children's book personally, it's important to resist the current madness, whether it's about made-up biology or deliberately-inflamed racism.

Blogger Damelon Brinn June 16, 2020 8:45 AM  

Yes. SJWs break the maxim of "follow the money." Part of the problem is that they assume the money will follow them, because they think far more people agree with them than do.

When Kathleen Kennedy decided to make "The Force Is Female" the underlying theme of Star Wars, she didn't know it was going to lead to a bomb a few movies later. But if you could take her back in time and show her that, she wouldn't abandon it. She'd just tell herself that the real cause was faulty marketing, timing, casting, whatever, and do it all over again.

Blogger ScottC June 16, 2020 8:50 AM  

The only reason transgenderism is even a thing is because motherhood has been separated from womanhood. If women who didn't seek motherhood were seen as failures men wouldn't be able to transition because to pass themselves off as women they would have to mother children, and they can't. At most, they could adopt but that would make transitioning doubly burdensome.

All over the Western world, people are retiring early and working out to the extent that they have much better muscle tone than when they were teens.

So we'll, inevitably, get this scenario.

62 years old Mike. " Hey fellow teens. Where's the skateboard park. I want to get some practice in before school begins. "

17 years old Seth. "What's wrong with you, dude? You're like, an old man!"

Mike. " No way dude. I got decades of banging the chicks and smoking weed before I'm old. "

The above is no more ridiculous than the leftist spin on transexualism.

Medical technology is not even close to being able to turn older people into young people, women into men, Chihuahuas into Saint Bernards, or Africans in America into a first world population.

It's going to be interesting to see if JK Rowling is mentally strong enough to hold her ground.

We were in the family range to get into her books as a group, and I was there for several of the midnight release parties. I ended up reading the series--and yes, book 7 was the endless camping trip.

That said, her series was Kafka for children. He was the worker's compensation system attorney who tweaked his experience into the horror of a Bureaucracy. Rowling as the client/victim of the welfare system did the same, only writing at a 6th grade level and inserting magic to make it more interesting.

Doktor Jeep wrote:Come to think of it, is anything more gamma than Harry Potter?

Contrary to expectations, the big gamma in Harry Potter is Tom Riddle/Lord Voldemort. He has the classic traits: random fits of anger, hatred of alpha/sigma figures, deep-seated resentment from a bad childhood, lust for people to acknowledge his power, and a need to always be right. What's missing is a revulsion from women (he has few interactions) and while he has some snark it's minimal.

Harry himself is a delta thrust into an alpha position with some poorly-written teenage angst thrown in. His primary desire is "normalcy" that he never gets until the end of the series. He's fighting against someone he's never known in a world he's never heard of until the start of the series. He doesn't hold resentment for long, looks up to the alpha/sigma of the series (Dumbledore), and doesn't use snark. He tries to go after the hottest girl, gets shot down (she later marries an alpha), and at the end marries the cute sister of his best friend and has the "normal" family he wanted.

As for the writing, it's better than average, but not up to the level of any of the greats (Tolkien, Lewis, etc). It's very colloquial, but not stilted the dialogue is good. There are some parts that need better editing, the infamous "camping trip" mentioned above is too long and the entire fifth book needed to be pared down a lot. Rowling also employs the annoying habit of introducing ad-hoc elements (the time-turners, prophecy globes, etc) that don't fit in with the overall world, are never used again, and seem to be there mostly to fix inconsistencies with the plot or provide motivations that otherwise don't make sense.

Most people I've met who dislike the series have either only watched the movies (which only really capture the plot and don't get the characters or details right) or have only read one or two books. I'd recommend reading or listening through the audiobooks of the entire series at least once. Book five is a long slog, but book six is worth it.

If Vox gets the option, publishing Rowling is a no-brainer. It adds another decently good fantasy series after the flagship Arts of Dark and Light and Green Knight's Squire series. It's also a massive bestseller and well-liked outside the SJW sphere.

She is a well-known advocate of open borders and often stated, that Europe has the duty to give every single one of these refugees from all over the middle east, rarely warzones, asylum and welfare. Everyone who represented a different opinion was viciously attacked by her, and she is not alone. Many other multi-millionaires and billionaires seem to be fond of virtue-signaling about refugees. Since she is a sheltered member of the rich elite, we think that it is time for her to show some true solidarity. J.K. Rowling has 18 spare bedrooms in her mansions in Britain and could easily give 18 refugees a long-time housing, not to mention the space available on her giant property to erect refugee shelters. '

When she heard that Dumbledore was gay, she nuked her entire site from orbit and said she wouldn't have a part in promoting sodomy. This is the kind of resolve that Rowling herself will need to have if she wants to keep the genderfreaks and Gamma Gestapo from overrunning her work. They're going to give her a hell of a struggle session and will try to convince her that she's personally strangling small non-binary children if she continues to spout her heresy. They'll also declare her persona non-grata and threaten to sweep her and her work out of the public sphere, much like at the end of the Chernobyl miniseries, where the head of the KGB threatens to memory hole Legasov and attribute his work to others, because he dared tell the public about the flaws in the Soviet nuclear program.

If feminism is cancer, then pretty, feminist moms who don't want She-Hulks with man-parts being called women are the more benign forms of cancer.

It was the "pretty" feminists like Gloria Steinem who paved the way for transgenderism. Feminists resented motherhood as a woman's primary purpose in life from the very beginning, but didn't make it the central plank in their platform until Betty Friedan's "Feminine Mystique" whose ideas the 60s feminists got on board with and pushed into the cultural mainstream. Feminists have been complaining that women aren't "baby machines" for decades, but are whatever they choose to be, meaning that womanhood is defined by the individual woman and not by God, nature, society, or some force outside her will.

If it was shameful for women not to focus on motherhood from an early age like they do in traditional communities, then transgenderism would be a practical impossibility. A man could still put a dress on and impersonate a female, but he would be under the same pressures as other women to procreate and mother children. The only way he could do that is by adopting someone else's kids. Hardly anyone would transition under those circumstances because the burden of being a social outcast and having to provide for someone else's offspring would be too much to bear.

JK Rowling was (I think) a young mother, but Rowling would the first to howl "baby machine" if someone said that motherhood is a norm and that anything that distracts from that - like a career as a novelist - should be discouraged. Basically, she wants to have her cake and eat it too. Women like her want the liberty of being able to define for themselves what a woman's path should be, but she doesn't want to live with the consequences of that idea.

I agree. She made this mess by trying to appease the outrage mobs. She made one of her most popular characters retroactively gay,(even though there was no hint of it in seven books) well after her series was finished and the books were sold. She then wrote more movies and movies with gay lead characters but that wasn't good enough for the gay mob. JK was scolded in reviews for not showing blatant homosexuality in a family film. I wasn't shocked to see them eat her alive over her support of a friend who was fired for saying that men can't be women and women can't turn into men. She also tried to say Hermione was black. It's such a sad joke.

@79- Trojan horses are worse than full armies if your city walls are still standing. But now that they have fallen, I worry more about the rampaging soldiers than the empty gift.

You're right, in that we never would've gotten to this point without misleading spokespeople to front the psy-op. Same way they pulled Tom Hanks to star as an AIDS patient before hitting us with drag queens reading to children.

However, the latter are worse. And your average mentally unwell hag feminist is worse than a feminist who bothers to fit in with the Old Ways occasionally (having babies, looking presentable, recognizing only women as women).

With fans like that we don't need book burners.

"She also tried to say Hermione was black. It's such a sad joke."

This was when "The Cursed Child" stageplay was produced, and a Black actress was cast as the adult Hermione. Lots of fans objected to this (I assume) for the simple reason that Hermione is not Black. JK blasted them all as "racists", the same as when the producer of the Dark Tower movie blasted fans who disagreed with a Black Roland. (Roland, BTW is specifically described as being White in the DT books, and his whiteness plays an role in the second voleume). Rowling cited a certain passage in which she described Hermione's hair as "frizzy", as supposed justification for her being blackwashed, but it is obvious that this was SJWism through and through. Either Hermione was really Black, in which case Emma Watson was miscast, or she wasn't, in which "The Cursed Child" got it wrong. The fans whom she condemned as racists, I imagine, were shocked, as most of them were probably fellow leftists and comitted Trump-haters just like JK herself. They probably were shocked at being so labeled. I seriously don't think a decade ago that saying a character isn't Black becuase they aren't was considered racism; meaning of course, that the definition of what's racist has expanded since.

If a Black character, say, Marvel comics' Blade, were played by a White man, well, they just wouldn't be Blade. Some have pointed this out, but to no avail, of course.

people should read J.K.Rowling's post where she explains her reasoning behind her views on gender and sex:

https://www.jkrowling.com/opinions/j-k-rowling-writes-about-her-reasons-for-speaking-out-on-sex-and-gender-issues/

It seems her main motivation is that she is a strident feminist and wants to protect women from "rapey" trans-men. Because she apparently suffered domestic and sexual violence in her first marriage by her husband. She also worries about that there is increased misogyny and sexism in the world today, and this may be partly what is motivating many females from now wanting to identify as male.

Basically, her whole thesis and viewpoint is based on the radically feminist notion that men are very violent and bad and oppressing women, and that "trans-rights" are simply a vehicle for men with bad intent to hurt women.

I don't see much defense in her post or thinking about the notion that biological sex differences between men and women are real and non-trivial. If she really does believe that, there is no way she could identify as a feminist. Because today's feminism denies such a thing.. and if you believe there are sex differences between men and women, you cannot support demands in equal outcomes for men and women.

Ah, well, she's a big lefty, now the outrage mob is turning on her.

Men aren't women,women aren't men, period.

You cannot change your sex.

I cannot stand transsexuals and am sick and tired of hearing about them.
