The Wrong Take: J. K. Rowling, Mail-In Ballots- Late Night with Seth Meyers

Late Night with Seth Meyers

  • Misfire on the Rowling thing ... the point of that part seemed to be it's fine to refer to women with hate speech (terms documented as socially legitimising violence towards a population sector). Wonder if Meyers even bothered reading JKR's essay. It was about protecting spaces and services for women and girls while still respecting trans people, so maybe too boring for him.

They do more harm with their completely nonsensical claims, and their agressive, and sadly, even violent behaviour. Try to understand what she actually said (not what you imagine she said). And if you are unable to do so, even to listen to her for a moment, and think about her words, and especially if you are not a trans person, then stfu, 'cause you don't have the right to scream "erase her from history".

  • The term "TERF" has been created by trans-rights activists. In fact, it was created by a woman who later regretted having done so, when she was considered a terf. It's one of these dumb buzzword, made to exclude and offend people who don't agree with you. Rowling doesn't hate trans people and never said anything to that regard. She simply stated that women's rights and trans rights, as of right now, are at odds but they don't have to. We can find solutions that work for all, but certainly not with this level of toxicity, embodied by the word "terf". And for that she is called a terf. Because people are idiots.

  • ! Why I’m voting the Democratic Party. 1860 the Democratic Party refused to accept the result of a free election. That year, their target was Lincoln. They smeared him. They went to war to defeat him. In the end, they Assassinated him. Now the Democrats With the Media. Are targeting President Trump and his supporters. The Democrat party is the party of white Supremacy; The party of Slavery the Slave plantation; The Trail Of Tears; The Civil War; The Ku Klux Klan; Jim Crow Laws; Segregation; Opposition to civil rights measures; Making Minorities victims rather than Equals; Enabling the Bigotry of low Expectations; Widespread abortions among Minorities; Increased minority incarceration; Open borders (which keep wages low and minority unemployment high); Protecting underperforming schools; Opposition to school choice; Disrespect for law and order; Ignoring destruction of their cities; You know what Democrats Preach. Now look at what Democrats Have Done and Continue to do to Minorities - and to the rest of America's Citizens .They continue to Try to Divide Us. They now Embrace the failed agenda of Socialism.

    • Drace90 you said yourself that this video doesn't even trash Rowling, it just makes an inoffensive joke about the acronym TERF 🤷 I feel incredibly sorry for Rowling that she went through domestic abuse, it's absolutely awful and it's understandable that it has clouded her opinions on men, however the fact of her abuse (by a cis man) is not a good reason to try and remove rights from trans women, and just because someone has experienced abuse it doesn't mean you can't disagree with them about their opinions on other things (something this video doesn't even do, by the way.)

      KatKatАй мурун
    • what an interesting take.. he's not smearing her for going through domestic abuse, he's smearing her for spreading transphobic rhetoric in a country where a lot of trans women are harmed. that's like someone being racist and then you saying "hey! you can't call them out for being racist! they've gone through domestic abuse'"

    • @Avenger Exactly. A person can be a victim and a horrible person. It's disturbing how worked up people get just by called JKR a transphobe, which is what she unapologetically is. No swearing, no insults, just saying she's a transphobe. I'm sorry for the abuse she's been through, and I'm disgusted by the hate and harm she's caused and continues to cause.

    • Is hate speech considered free speech?

      Anna IorioAnna IorioАй мурун
    • @Drace90 Good arguments, bad arguments - freedom of speech means people still have the right to make those arguments. And others have the right to respond with their own good or bad arguments. I don't know enough about the JK Rowling situation to cast judgement. All I know is that arguing people shouldn't voice an opinion, rather than challenging the contents of that opinion, is anti-free speech. Arguing against Kat's simple assertion that people have the right to voice their opinions and criticisms directly implies that you disagree with that, and the only explanation you give for arguing against Freedom of Speech itself is basically "well, some people use their freedom of speech to say insults!"

      AlashiaTuolAlashiaTuolАй мурун
    • @Drace90 Also strawmanning has nothing to do with accusing someone of crimes they didn't commit. But I'm guessing you don't actually understand what strawmanning at this point and how it functions in fallacy arguments, sooooo...

      AlashiaTuolAlashiaTuolАй мурун
    • @Drace90 If you dislike the term "strawmanning," we could also call your behavior "redirecting," because the "shitstorm" name-calling other people do is neither here nor there when it comes to this show or any of these comments. What people name-call JK Rowling at other places on the internet has nothing to do with this conversation, and you're basically arguing that we're wrong for using our freedom of speech to criticize someone for beliefs we don't agree with, or even to argue in favor of people being able using their freedom of speech to do the same, solely because other people are name-calling, and poor JK Rowling, a woman richer than the Queen of England, was once in an abusive relationship and also gives to charity. Fun fact: I give to charity, and I've been in an abusive relationship. Does that mean that you're wrong for arguing against me? No one's calling me names, but then, no one's calling JK Rowling names here, either, and you seem to still be against basic criticism against her beliefs. Or is it only rich famous people who deserve to be held with kids gloves when they express beliefs others disagree with? Do you read your own words before you post them?

    • ​@L G My prior comment was deleted, as well. But this isn't the channel moderators, it's KGworld's automatic spam filter. It happens on all channels to all types of comments. Not everything is a giant conspiracy, my dude. You brought up legality, please defer to my prior comment. I already addressed legal arguments. "consequences of that: male bodies in womens' prisons, shelters, sports, locker rooms, etc. " You're in luck, my friend! There has been absolutely no evidence that this is an issue among places where transgendered people have more rights and freedoms. Transwomen aren't mass assaulting women, it's just a misplaced fear driven by ignorance on the issues. It's nothing new. It was the same thing with gay people. Unless you are able to provide any evidence that this is a widespread issue, then this claim or issue has no bearing. Your last paragraph doesn't make any sense. If you could rephrase it, that'd be appreciated.

      AvengerAvengerАй мурун
    • ​@Avenger LOL the moderators of this comments section are clearly members of the Gender Fandom; I have been blocked from replying with my main account. Shortened version of my deleted comment: In the UK and US, countries relevant to JKR and this show, any man with a nebulously-defined "gender identity" is legally a woman. Even if trans women have "female brains" and trans men have "male brains" (this is still an if; the research remains inconclusive), a brain scan is not required for a person to legally identify as the opposite sex, so it's a moot point. Very few people care if a man wants to get plastic surgery and be called Alice (social matter). What myself and many other women are concerned about is the ease with which a man can legally "become" a woman, and the consequences of that: male bodies in womens' prisons, shelters, sports, locker rooms, etc. Also, radical feminists aren't saying that trans people "don't exist," or trying to make transition illegal. Don't be so dramatic. We are just patiently waiting to be successfully convinced that enjoying feminine stereotypes turns a man into a woman.

      L GL GАй мурун
    • @Last First"Why does gender override sex when it comes to the legal definition of woman?" It depends on the laws. In certain countries transwomen are legally seen as women. So I'm not sure what your point is. Regardless, legality has nothing to do with social concepts. If being gay is made illegal, does that all of a sudden mean being gay no longer exists? No, of course not. "How, in a material sense, are trans women different from men? " The mind is different. For example, there was a study regarding the brain activity and structure of men vs women vs transmen and transwomen. It found that the brains of Transwomen and women were similar and transmen and men were similar. This is an example of material sense. Something that just isn't psychological. I'm explaining this, but I don't expect any of this to change your mind because I don't think any amount of evidence will, but hopefully it helps anyone else reading these comments.
