J.K. Rowling blasts the hypocrisy of sexist ‘liberal’ men in an epic tweetstorm.

After picturing a gentleman on Twitter call British Prime Minister Theresa May a “whore, ” author J.K. Rowling unloaded on “liberal” men who engage in sexism.

“Just unfollowed a husband whom I thought was smart and funny, because he announced Theresa May a harlot, ” she embarked as she offered an impassioned plea for parties to praise May’s political sentiments and actions instead of resorting to gendered slurs.

As a long-time supporter of the Labour party, Rowling doesn’t have much in common with May( the leader of the U.K.’s Conservative Party) when it comes to politics. Still, Rowling knows what it’s like to receive evaluation based on one’s identity instead of their deeds, which is what caused her disturbance of tweets.

Rowling precisely singled out the hypocrisy of radical males “who contact immediately for petroleum and demeaning paroles associated with femaleness” and “act like old school misogynists” whenever they encounter “a woman[ who] displeases them.”

There are ladens of ways and reasonableness to blame May’s politics, but sexist ad hominem strikes- especially when they come from people who marks as radical and progressive — don’t accomplish anything.

“I don’t care whether we’re talking about Theresa May or Nicola Sturgeon or Kate Hooey or Yvette Cooper or Hillary Clinton: femaleness is not a intend mistake, ” Rowling tweeted. “If your immediate response to a woman who annoys you is to call her a synonym for her vulva, or equate her to a sex, then falls the pretence and own it: you’re not a liberal.”

You can disagree with and vehemently resist any other female personalities and politicians or women in your life and around the world without having to resort to sexism. If you believe in equal rights, in feminism, in respect for women, and still rarely resort to sexist insults, you may just want to give this a try. For everyone’s sake.

For now, though, this is another classic Rowling mic drop.
