& # 39; Trans Healthcare is not conversion therapy. This is crazy. & # 39;

In a separate tweet, she added: & # 39; JK Rowling is not a scientist. She is not a doctor. She is not an expert on gender. She is not a supporter of our community.

“She is a billionaire, cisgender, straight, white woman who has decided that she knows what is best for us and our bodies. This is not your struggle. & # 39;

She also called the author an "enemy of progress" and described her comments as "evil".

Rowling was furious last month when she responded to an online article titled "Opinion: Creating an Equal Post-COVID-19 World for Menstrual Men".

She tweeted her 14.5 million followers: “People who menstruate. I am sure there was a word for these people in the past. Someone is helping me. Bowing? Wimpund? Woomud? & # 39;

In her 4,000-word essay, she explained her research and beliefs on transgender issues, including examples of where demands from transgender activists were dangerous for women – which LGBTQ advocacy groups criticized as divisive and transphobic.

Her testimony was supported by Baroness Emma Nicholson (pictured with Rowling in 2007), who is in a row with Bergdorf about the allegations that the Tory peer bullied her, and whom Rowling described as "the bravest woman".

She was faced with a backlash today after liking a tweet that said, “Hormone prescriptions are the new antidepressants.

“Yes, they are sometimes necessary and life-saving, but they should be a last resort – not the first option.

"Pure laziness for those who prefer to take medication than spend time and effort to heal people's thoughts."

After the backlash, the author went to Twitter to clarify her thoughts.

In a separate tweet, Bergdorf (pictured) added: “JK Rowling is not a scientist. She is not a doctor. She is not an expert on gender. She is not a supporter of our community. & # 39;

She wrote: “Many health professionals are concerned that young people struggling with their mental health may switch to hormones and surgeries when this may not be in their best interest.

“Many, including myself, believe that we are seeing a new type of conversion therapy for young gay people who are on a lifelong path of medication that can lead to loss of fertility and / or full sexual function.

She cited articles that discussed the long-term effects of antidepressants and hormone therapies.

She added, “None of this can worry you or disrupt your belief in your own justice. But if so, I can't pretend that your bad opinion about me is very important to me. "
