The unnamed fellow, who Rowling sarcastically refers to as “Mr Liberal Cool Man,” made the error of calling UK Prime Minister Theresa Could a “whore.”

That was sufficient for Rowling to unfollow the perpetrator, and spend 14 withering tweets explaining why, “For those who can’t disagree with a girl with out reaching for all these filthy previous insults,” you’ve got failed at upholding liberal values.

“[F]emaleness isn’t a design flaw,” she wrote. “In case your quick response to a girl who displeases you is to name her a synonym for her vulva, or evaluate her to a prostitute, then drop the pretence and personal it: you’re not a liberal. You’re a number of brief steps away from some man hiding behind a cartoon frog.”

Preach, J.Okay., preach.
