The author of the classic novel "The Handmade's Tale" has been slammed by the "woke" Left after she dared question the transgender agenda on social media.

Margaret Atwood wrote her science-fiction book, which was published in 1985, about an alternate reality where America is divided and partly ruled under a strict communist-like regime.

In 2017, the book was reworked into a hit Hulu TV series under the same name.

However, "The Handmade's Tale" has recently been hijacked by leftists, who appear to have never read the book or watched the show, and used to promote a range of leftwing talking points and even attack President Trump and the Supreme Court.

And yet with one tweet, the acclaimed writer has now become the target of hate from the same "woke" fan base after she committed the ultimate sin of asking rational questions.

Atwood pulled the trigger by sharing an article that questioned the increasing prevalence of terms like “person with a vagina” and “person who menstruates” in place of "mother" or "woman."

Atwood tweeted a Toronto Star column titled “Why Can’t We Say ‘Woman’ Anymore?” 

The article calls into question transgender activists for their erasure of “woman” and their aggressive push to stigmatize the word.

“This is all directly a phenomenon resulting from trans activism run amok,” columnist Rosie DiManno wrote.

She cited the recent cases of the once-respected medical journal The Lancet using the term bodies with vaginas to describe women, and the ACLU changing a quote from the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by substituting “person” for “woman.”

“The battleground of language has turned into a battleground of agendas,” DiManno concluded.

“I am woman and I am roaring.”

For the act of simply tweeting the article, Atwood has received vicious social media blowback from her fans, some of whom compared her to Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who has also voiced skepticism of the trans agenda.

A producer for NPR’s All Things Considered was among those who compared Atwood to Rowling.

Atwood is now facing accusations of being a “TERF” — a pejorative term invented by trans activists that stands for “trans-exclusionary radical feminist.”
