The plot sounds very similar to Brian De Palma's film Dressed to Kill.

Love that film

What's wrong with this woman ? I feel like she's using her HUGE platform to actually bully the trans community into accepting HER fact that  they are in fact men and not women and shouldn't be entitle to ANY right whatsoever .

What an arsehole .

J.K. Rowling Proves Her Commitment to Transphobia in Her New Novel

Cynthia Nixon also called out the Harry Potter author for her “painful” anti-trans comments.

No longer satisfied with simply repeatedly expressing her transphobic opinions on Twitter and in 3,600-word screeds on her personal website, J.K. Rowling now appears to be bringing her TERF (trans-exclusionary radical feminist) logic to a bookshelf near you via her new fictional novel, Troubled Blood, out Tuesday.

According to an early review in The Telegraph, Troubled Blood—the fifth installment in Rowling’s Cormoran Strike series written under the pen name Robert Galbraith—deals with the cold case of a woman who disappeared in 1974 and is believed to be the victim of Dennis Creed, “a transvestite serial killer.” (Transvestite is considered an outdated and derogatory term for cross-dressing, which is not the same as being trans.) The review goes on to say, “One wonders what critics of Rowling’s stance on trans issues will make of a book whose moral seems to be: never trust a man in a dress.”

This also isn’t the first time Rowling’s anti-trans opinions have found their way onto the pages of this particular series. In the second Cormoran Strike book, The Silkworm, a woman named Pippa stalks detective Strike before attempting to stab him. Strike traps her in his office, revealing her identity as a trans woman, with Rowling adding in a description of her Adam’s apple and hands. The detective then tells Pippa that prison “won’t be fun for you.… Not pre-op.” (Rowling’s representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.)

She just keeps going and going with this.

 

 

 

I looked at the shop and couldn't find them. Where are they? They just had T-shirts saying "Lesbians against Racism".

It's so incredibly sad to me that someone can have such a huge platform and massive wealth and choose to divide instead of unite.

Did an ex-boyfriend of hers leave her for a transwoman? I just do NOT understand the bitterness! 

Transwomen are not trying to "erase" women as she claims. That's the biggest load of shit ever.

She's gonna become a liability to her own reactionary dogma like Graham Linehan did. Dropping the syrupy pretense and plausible deniability and going full sadistic (or even sociopathic, as it increasingly looks) goes against the TERF handbook. Maybe they won't care when she opens the cheque book and throws enough of her millions into "the war effort", though.

Well all the millions come from the Potter franchise. Her other books are big fat flops. Nobody will read the new one.

Her latest book (5th in the series) sold 65K on the first 5 days.

Biggest single week sales for her serial killer series.

Her 1st & 2nd sold 1.5m across all formats (print, audio, e-book). Not really a flop.

She sold hundred of millions. Her followers don't give a damn about her recent work.
