Yes that is awful. As the article points out this legislation was:

"announced on the four-year anniversary of the massacre at a gay
nightclub in Orlando and in the middle of Pride Month."

There have been more murders of black trans women in the US as well
recently -

And in the UK the Tories are being emboldened to roll back hard-won
protections for trans people.

So Rowling "just expressing valid concerns", as way too many people have
said to me over the last day or so, isn't happening in a vacuum. And
also is not actually in any way, shape or form "just expressing valid
concerns". She's playing on people's fears and sympathies while
repeating the battle-tested lies of anti-trans-rights extremists.

The Sun are still scum for what they have done to her though.
