JK Rowling’s transphobia continues with a Zombieland Saga meme

In September 2021, the medium mipon met with the writer Shigeru Murakoshi and the producer nobuhi takenakakey members of the production of zombie land saga. There they were clear that the character of Lily Hoshikawa is a “otokonoko“, which is a Japanese term for men who have a culturally feminine gender expression. That is, Lily is a boy who identifies as a girl, and who dresses as such.

The term does not have a literal translation into English, much less into Spanish, since some compare it with the transvestism (also crudely known as “rags”) and others to transgender, a broader term that arguably better fits the character. Of course, aotokonoko“will never be a term to refer to a transsexual (i.e., a person who underwent a surgical and hormonal sex change), which means that Lily Hoshikawa is still male (has a male member), but identifies as female.

Anyway, having already explained all this mess about current ideologies, it turns out that there is also the antithesis of all this: the TERFswhich is the acronym for Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist which in its literal translation into Spanish means “Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist“. The term is used exclusively by the feminist collective, so you may not be fully familiar with it, although you may have heard it once.

The term is widely spread on the internet and is the protagonist of forums and heated discussions on Twitter, mainly among trans women and cisgender women (those who identify with their biological sex). The term is somewhat complicated to explain, but speaking in parts, “radical feminist“refers to the women seeking “a world without men”Y “Trans-Exclusive” continues the previous definition, but adds rejection of trans women (that is to say, do not consider transsexuals or transgender women as “women”).

Now, one of the most famous people in the world, the author of Harry Potter, JK Rowlingis considered a TERF, and recently shared an update on Twitter that, curiously, was carried out by the very same Lily Hoshikawa.

Rowling shared two “memes”, one from yesteryear and one current, and mentioned: “Same shit, different century». The one of the leftwhat does it say “What I would do with the suffragists», It is an anti-feminist image, which portrays the rejection of women who sought to obtain the right to vote (to vote); while the one on the rightwhat does it say “Shut the fuck up TERF (Shut up TERF)», It is an image that portrays the rejection of the TERF.

That’s right, Rowling compares these two moments in the history of feminism, that is, she poses as a “persecuted” woman persecuted by people who think differently than her. We will not comment on current ideologies, but simply share this curiosity precisely because it appeared zombie land sagaalthough they are free to discuss in the comments.
