JK Rowling has become embroiled in another row over transgender rights - this time over the release of her latest book. The Harry Potter author has been accused of transphobia for the plot of Troubled Blood, which is written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith and is the latest in the Strike series.
One review from The Telegraph reveals the book to be about a ‘transvestite’ who murders women. Jake Kerridge wrote: “The meat of the book is the investigation into a cold case: the disappearance of GP Margot Bamborough in 1974, thought to have been a victim of Dennis Creed, a transvestite serial killer."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.”.
