You picked one tweet of about 40.
How about the one where she mock criticizes International Women's Day, claiming you can't say "women" anymore?
Is that misguided fear mongering enough for you?
She's terrified of losing her identity, and it's sad. She thinks her identity is the single mother who struggled so much that she had to hide that she was a woman to get published. She isn't the first of those, and sadly probably won't be the last. She's actually the massively successful author, the most successful financially, who brought joy to millions of children. But that's not how she sees herself, and instead of seeing trans women as people who are struggling as she did, she sees them as threats. As men that want to steal what she had and push her out.
It's batshit. And she just keeps doubling down, instead of going "oh, I didn't realize." Keeps repeating right wing fear mongering. "we can't say women anymore!" Or "they're another form of grooming!" Or "but the bathrooms!" All of which are intentionally misunderstanding in order to create an enemy
