I'm sorry, but This position is bogus. There is a very wide gap between being actually transphobic or doubting whether J.K. Rowling is transphopbic or transcritical. You're forcing a position on people who don't agree with the take that J.K. Rowling is actually transphobic, but who are not transphobic themselves. Insinuating they're bigots by association, which is what the post does, is essentially flaming a whole bunch of people all at once. This is exactly why a lot of people are very critical of the boycot (myself included), because for some people, it comes from a position of absolute hypocrisy and does nothing to actually advance trans rights.

If people want to boycott the game because they take issue with Rowling's takes, that is totally fine.
If people want to buy the game, that's fine too.
If people disagree with people labeling Rowling as a transphobe, that should be fine too.
If VGChartz decides they don't want that kind of discussion on their forum, guess what, totally fine too. But don't go picking a side and narrative and forcing it on everyone.
That might not have been the intention, but that's totally what the post implies and it's not fine.
