We are taking a break from our regularly scheduled discussion to address JK Rowling’s recent tweet about the Maya Forstater case. We feel it is important to address this and other statements made by Jo which have been seen to many as transgender-exclusionary. We discuss our views on this subject, the idea of separating art from creator, and share resources for being strong allies to the trans and non-binary communities.
