“Just unfollowed a man whom I thought was smart and funny, because he called Theresa May a whore,” Rowling wrote. “If you can’t disagree with a woman without reaching for all those filthy old insults, screw you and your politics.”
You would think Rowling would let it end at that, but you are very wrong. The 51-year old English author had more to say. She openly declared that she continues to be absolutely disgusted at men who pose as “liberal” but who shriek with vitriol the moment they think some woman doesn't seem to be of their taste. Men like these, she added, are always ready to throw some nasty verbal attacks against their targets who are usually either defenseless or numbed, numbed by the sheer number of these men who are out there and actively hateful. What really makes her sick to the core is when the men pass their acts off as brave when they had just finished acting like old-school, power-hungry misogynists.
