I didn’t realise how much I cared until I started reading J K Rowling’s essay. After I read that, and read the abuse she was receiving on social media , I got more and more angry at the state of affairs today in which stating a scientific fact can receive such vulgar backlash. I’m scared of this mob-like culture and where it will lead. We’ve gone down a social media rabbit hole.
I have retweeted information on social media. I’m scared to do anything else in case it affects my chosen career down the line. I also opened a discussion with my close family.
I’m afraid of any real life consequences if I do say anything more.
L, I Stand With J K Rowling
