Opinion: J.K. Rowling becomes early casualty in unfolding LGBT civil war

About two weeks ago, in a piece I wrote predicting the coming inner-LGBT acronym war between the LGB's and the T's, I wrote these words:

The very nature of lesbianism, gayness, and bisexuality rests on the presupposition that there exists a so-called "gender binary." That is, there are boys and there are girls… Meanwhile, the entire premise of transgenderism is the belief that there is no "male" nor "female." Instead, all beings exist on a sliding scale of gender identity, which makes any appeal to a male/female gender reality oppressive.

In transgenderism, lesbianism is a ruse because you can't really be female, and what you're attracted to can't really be female either. Ditto that for gayness and bisexuality. They don't really exist; they can't exist if transgender theory is to be accepted as viable, legitimate, and true.

In other words, the T's are poised to mount an intra-revolution revolution, seeking to erase the hard-fought identity claims of lesbians, gays, and bisexuals. And right on cue, LGBT super-celebrity ally J.K. Rowling becomes the first casualty of the insurrection.

It all began when a think tank called the Centre for Global Development chose not to renew the contract of one of their visiting fellows, a woman named Maya Forstater. The think tank accused Forstater of "offensive and exclusionary language" after tweeting that men could not change their biological sex.

That might seem an odd accusation since, of course, it is a scientific fact that a male cannot change their biological sex to female. Which is precisely what the Harry Potter author thought as she took to Twitter with thousands of others to defend Maya and common sense:

The backlash was instant, and it was severe, with Rowling being tagged a "trans-exclusionary radical feminist" (TERF) by a significant portion of the movement she has proudly championed. Please note the irony in such a designation. The transgender movement is seeking to functionally erase the identity of lesbians, gay men, and bisexuals by establishing the preposterous notion that there is no gender binary (i.e., male and female) but rather a fluid scale that every human traverses freely.

That reality is starting to be noticed and resisted by outspoken lesbian activists like black radical feminist "Sister Outrider" who angrily responded to this entire spectacle:

So it's the height of irony to see a group that wants to erase other people's sexual identity exercising the temerity to label anyone who doesn't agree with them "exclusionary." But that's where we are.

Admittedly, there's something oddly satisfying for Christians who have been unjustly smeared as bigots by people like Rowling for our non-compliance with the ever-evolving dogma of the sexual revolution. Seeing her hoisted on her own petard, sacrificed by the very illogic she helped foster, abused by the very nonsensical language she played such a part in facilitating, certainly appeals to the vindictive part of anyone's human nature that revels in seeing someone receive their just deserts.

But, of course, let's not pretend that the emerging war amongst these sexual revolutionaries is going to result in anything beneficial for Christians given that their hatred for us is all that fundamentally unites these belligerent factions.

What it does do, however, is validate again precisely what Christians have been saying would result from the un-defining of marriage and family in our society – complete sexual anarchy. And to be clear, no one – absolutely no one – wins in such an environment. Just ask J.K. Rowling.
