On February 9th 2023, I was browsing Twitter in class when I came across a post by a trans-identified person. He was saying how embarrassed he is by his Harry Potter tattoo, since the author of the books, J.K. Rowling, is a ‘TERF’ and all that.
So I figured: he made the decision when he was younger, it’s (somewhat) permanent and now he regrets it. Sound familiar? Hint: detransitioners that supposedly “don’t exist” according to the trans movement. So I made a tweet, I didn’t think about it too much though. It went wild, from the moment I tweeted it. Even Ben Shapiro retweeted it! I can tell you I did NOT expect this.
At the moment of writing, the tweet has 3,800+ retweets and 28,000+ likes.
