J.K. Rowling Dares Police to Arrest Her After Defying Scotland’s Draconian New Speech Law

J.K. Rowling, the famous author of the “Harry Potter” series, has taken a brave stand against Scotland’s new Hate Crime Act.

She challenged Scottish police to arrest her for simply stating the biological truth that men are men, even if they claim to be transgender.

In a powerful social media post, Rowling started off by sarcastically pointing out several male criminals who suddenly said they were transgender right before being sentenced for terrible crimes.

She then revealed it was all an April Fools’ joke, boldly declaring, “Obviously, the people mentioned in the above tweets aren’t women at all, but men, every last one of them.”

Rowling’s strong words show how problematic Scotland’s Hate Crime Act really is.

She argued that “Scottish lawmakers seem to have placed higher value on the feelings of men performing their idea of femaleness, however misogynistically or opportunistically, than on the rights and freedoms of actual women and girls.”

She also highlighted the immense pressure Scottish women are under to ignore basic facts and “embrace a neo-religious concept of gender that is unprovable and untestable.”

Rowling stressed how redefining “woman” to include any man who says he is one has already seriously harmed women’s rights and safety in Scotland, especially for vulnerable women like prisoners and rape survivors.

Her message rings loud and clear: “It is impossible to accurately describe or tackle the reality of violence and sexual violence committed against women and girls, or address the current assault on women’s and girls’ rights, unless we are allowed to call a man a man. Freedom of speech and belief are at an end in Scotland if the accurate description of biological sex is deemed criminal.”

While some have criticized Rowling, like Scotland’s Community Safety Minister who said her tweet could be investigated by police, others are standing with her.

Jim Sillars, former deputy leader of the Scottish National Party, has started a campaign against the Hate Crime Act, saying it “inflicts a deep wound on the face of Scottish society.”

We should all applaud J.K. Rowling for bravely defending free speech and biological truth, even when faced with possible legal trouble.

Her courageous stance inspires us to speak out against misguided ideas that threaten our basic rights.

It’s time for society to come together and support Rowling and other fearless voices who challenge dangerous ideologies in order to protect the freedoms of women and girls everywhere.
