The OG Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, has proven to us why she is truly the iconic Amazonian princess-warrior as she's stuck up for trans rights.

In what seems like a reference to JK Rowling's latest tweets concerning trans people, Lynda took to Twitter herself to stand up for what's right and dismantle anti-trans views with elegant simplicity. And she didn't even need the lasso of truth or an invisible jet!

On Sunday (12 December) Harry Potter author Rowling tweeted an article criticising Police Scotland's approach to recording a suspect's gender identity, adding: "War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. The Penised Individual Who Raped You Is a Woman."

"Life is just too short"

This (unsurprisingly) led to a strong backlash against Rowling, whose views on gender identity and trans people have frequently stoked controversy, and saw her being compared to one of her most evil fictional creations, Dolores Umbridge.

Enter Wonder Woman... I mean, Lynda Carter, who on Tuesday (14 December) tweeted: "You don't have to be trans to understand the importance of respecting trans people and affirming their identities.

"Life is just too short. I can't imagine how it makes any sense to use one's fame and resources to put others down," she continued.

It's not the first time Lynda Carter has shown herself as a trans and LGBTQ ally. In October she tweeted: "Trans women are Wonder Women. End of story."

As one person commented on Lynda's tweet from earlier this week, "We stan Lynda Carter!" We do indeed!
