“Harry Potter” book profits continued to soar in 2023 despite numerous attempts to cancel the famed author of the book series J.K. Rowling for her support of biological women over trans-indentifying males.

In 2023, Pottermore publishing — a global digital audiobook and eBook publisher of “Harry Potter” books and affiliated Wizarding World titles — experienced a surge in sales, going from approximately $7 million U.S. dollars to more than $11.9 million over the last fiscal year, GB News reported.

Pottermore’s Managing Director released a statement about the increase in revenue and said, “We continue to look for ways to grow partnerships, build our language catalog and reach new audiences with creative and promotional initiatives such as the annual Starting Harry Potter campaign for new readers.”

Rowling — who has faced numerous attacks from leftist activists for her support of biological women — is very outspoken on social media and doesn’t back down when threatened by trans activists.

She went viral recently after she posted a message on X to those pushing people to use the word “cis,” a term used to describe people whose identity and gender correspond with their biological sex, after X boss Elon Musk labeled it “a slur.”

“‘Cis’ is ideological language, signifying belief in the unfalsifiable concept of gender identity,” Rowling wrote at the time.


“You have a perfect right to believe in unprovable essences that may or may not match the sexed body, but the rest of us have a right to disagree, and to refuse to adopt your jargon,” she added. Her post went viral with more than 20 million views and counting at the time of this publication.

In another post, she torched a trans activist who told her, “You as a cis woman have every right to disagree with me, cis man, and other cis women, along with trans men and trans women.”

“Just type ‘repent, heretic,'” Rowling wrote. “Fewer characters and it’ll have exactly the same effect on me.”

The famous author previously spoke out against the former Scottish female First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, who in 2022 supported that government’s Gender Recognition Reform Bill.
