For the unversed, a poll was published by Rasmussen Reports titled: “Most Americans Side With J.K. Rowling: Only Two Genders.” The article detailed the whole episode. But turned out that did not go well with the writer who said she was being misquoted. Taking to her verified Twitter handle she first wrote, “Small but important point: I’ve never said there are only two genders. There are innumerable gender identities.”

JK Rowling decided to detail her claims, as she added, “The question at the heart of this debate is whether s*x or gender identity should form the basis of decisions on safeguarding, provision of services, sporting categories and other areas where women and girls currently have legal rights and protections.”

The Harry Potter fame went on to give proof of what she had written. JK Rowling concluded, “Using the words ‘s*x’ and ‘gender’ interchangeably obscures the central issue of this debate. If you’re interested in what I actually said, see https://bit.ly/347qA56 (in which I literally say ‘trans lives matter’ and ‘trans rights are human rights.’)”
