J.K Rowling who earlier stirred controversy with what was perceived as ‘transphobic tweets’ has now further complicated matters as she said a ‘medical scandal’ is approaching. In her latest tweet series, the acclaimed author has said that medical professionals and educators have approached her with theories supporting her idea.

“Since speaking up about gender identity theory, I’ve received thousands of emails – more than I’ve ever had on a single subject,” wrote the Harry Potter writer.

“Many have come from professionals working in medicine, education, and social work. All are concerned about the effects on vulnerable young people,” she added.

“The writers of this letter are just two of a growing number of whistleblowers. The bleak truth is that if and when the scandal does erupt, nobody currently cheering this movement on will be able to credibly claim “we couldn’t have known”, the 54-year old added.

The British author had earlier drew ire as she wrote, “If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It doesn’t hate to speak the truth,” in a tweet calling out the concept of ‘defying sex and gender identity’.
