Stanford Students Warned Not to Agree With Writer J.K. Rowling on Trans Issues

“Her beliefs do not reflect our values”

J.K. Rowling is the creator of the Harry Potter series. She is a defender of the idea that only biological women are truly women, and the left despises her for it.

The College Fix reports:

Stanford students told they better not agree with J.K. Rowling on trans issues

Stanford University student staff recently issued a statement condemning the author of Harry Potter for her alleged “transphobic, anti-Semitic, and racist” comments.

Students living in the Harry Potter-themed dorm were told in late March that J.K. Rowling’s views on transgenderism are unacceptable, according to a column in the Stanford Review.

The statement was made during the dorm’s first virtual house meeting, Stanford student Maxwell Meyer wrote.

The statement read: “We want to acknowledge that J.K. Rowling has made many transphobic, anti-Semitic, and racist statements over the past year. Her beliefs do not reflect our values as a house, and we want to make it clear that we do not tolerate comments like hers in this dorm. Our theme … is intended to make this space safe and fun for you this quarter.”

The College Fix reached out to Meyer, who declined comment.

Meyer argued in his column that the claims against Rowling are inaccurate, pointing out that she has been a longtime supporter of LGBT rights while also acknowledging biological sex. He also asserted that Rowling has made no racist or anti-Semitic statements.

“The scapegoating of a children’s fantasy author for fabricated claims of racism is a very bad sign at a university, even if she’s very wealthy and secure in her livelihood, as Rowling is,” he wrote. “But I’m not worried about protecting a billionaire; I’m worried for the students who are expected to learn in an environment where false claims of bigotry are not just acceptable, but official policy.”

If they warned me, my reply would be, “Or…?”

Burred lede: a university has a Harry-Potter themed dorm.

Probably the worst trend in 21st century higher education has been the emergence of a wide-spread call of student affairs specialists. These people hold masters degrees from third-rate colleges and then get employed at major research universities. They then rabble-rouse and inspire the worst forms of student activism, casting the students adrift from long-cherished academic traditions and values.

    Some of those master’s degrees are earned at those self-same major research universities.

    Master’s programs are the cash cows and the degrees are indeed “third-rate,” no matter how you slice it.

I’m still waiting for an XY “transwoman” to have a period, or become pregnant.

Also waiting on an XX “transman” to win any type of high level championship in mens’ sports.

the current progressive dogma is clearly and objectively false, yet they force students and employees to say the words anyway.

I’d love to know what “antisemitic” or “racist” comments this “person” has in mind. Assuming xe’s not intentionally lying.
