Australia has spoken, and J.K. Rowling is out.

Rabble Books & Games in Maylands, Australia, said earlier this week that the store would stop stocking her books due to this, this, or this, all of which, it’s not so wild to presume, have already impacted her book sales.

“We are always trying to make Rabble a safer space for our community, and part of that is trying not to put books by transphobes on the shelves, when we know about them,” the bookstore’s statement said on Instagram. It added that the store would still place orders for books by Rowling upon request.
