Rowling could do well to consider how queer men face about as much pushback and mistreatment from the average straight/cis man as women do. I mean, of course many women are sick and tired of living in a patriarchy, but so are queer men. So am I.

I have been intensely uncomfortable around most straight men most of my life. Because I’m all too aware of how most straight men view queer men.

The idea that a trans man is escaping the patriarchy, when society is broadly homophobic, is kind of ridiculous.

Rowling doesn’t have any idea what she’s talking about. But then I guess we mostly know that already.
