The Harry Potter author addressed criticism of her response to an article that described “people who menstruate”. In a lengthy blog, she wrote her interest in trans issues stemmed from being a survivor of abuse and having concerns around single-sex spaces. Actor Daniel Radcliffe was among those critical of Ms Rowling’s comments. In the blog post published on Wednesday, Ms Rowling, 54, detailed what she said were the five reasons why she felt the need to talk about the issue. These included her interest in “both education and safeguarding” and “freedom of speech”.
