Others talk about how her books had helped children they know and themselves to pick up books and enjoy reading. Especially during the times when they didn’t use to enjoy it. One replied, “I’ve said it before, and it needs saying again I was a school governor in the mid-2000’s getting boys to read was a MASSIVE pedagogical issue to which there was no solution. And then along came the wonderful @jk_rowling. It is hard to exaggerate that effect.”

Another shared hers, “I have to say that you deserve every penny you receive. My nephew, like many boys, was struggling in his English classes, but after discovering (and devouring!) your books he obtained a solid pass and has never looked back having obtained a GCSE that every child needs to progress.”

The label TERF was attached to her since her June 2020 tweet when she shared, “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 isn’t hate to speak the truth.”
