JK Rowling faces flak for transphobic tweet

Author JK Rowling faced the ire of netizens for supporting transphobic comments made by a woman who got fired for the same.
Maya Forstater was fired from her job as a tax researcher after she tweeted against the UK government's Gender Recognition Act, which allowed people to legally change their gender.
However, Rowling seems to agree with her. In a tweet, Rowling wrote that forcing "women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real" is unfair, implying that transexuality isn't real.
Netizens hit out at the author for essentially implying that you have to adhere to gender norms and be the sex you're born with. Many said Rowling failed to realise that a trans man or a trans woman is also a man or a woman and denying them the right to choose their gender is deeply problematic!
