In a series of X posts, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling ridiculed notorious trans women (biological males) in an attempt to draw attention to a new “hate crime” law in Scotland critics call dangerous. 

The law, which extends hate crime protections to transgender persons, whose hurt feelings will now create criminal intent for those who criticize the trans community. 

Rowling made the series of 11 posts as part of an April Fool’s Day parody of the law, which she says allows politicians to “misogynistically or opportunistically” devalue the “rights and freedoms of actual women and girls” in favor of the “feelings of men” who just pretend to be women. 

The new law extends hate crime definitions to any act against a group “merely on the grounds that they feel their group to be insulted,” said the U.K.’s liberal newspaper, The Guardian. 

The law was purposefully crafted to just include members of the trans community, and does not extend to “women,” the paper also reported. 

“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,” said Rowling. 

The author’s hit parade of males identifying as women and protected under the new law include: 

  • Amy George, who “abducted an 11-year-old girl” and “sexually abused her over a 27-hour period”; 
  • Samantha Norris, who, while “cleared [for] exposing her penis to two 11-year-old girls,” was “convicted for possession of 16,000 images of children being raped and sexually assaulted”;  
  • Katie Dolatowski, who was convicted of assaulting a 10-year-old girl in a toilet and complained when later sent to the men’s prison; 
  • Isla Bryson, a “convicted double rapist” sent to prison for eight years; 
  • An unidentified trans activist going under the handle “@pickel_bee,” shown brandishing an axe and knives, and who promised “direct action” to “get the goods.” 

Honorary mentions in Rowling’s list are Katie Neeves, who is the United Nations Women U.K. delegate, who “described how she used to enjoy stealing and wearing her sister’s underwear”; and Giulia Valentino, a balding, male Italian migrant who moved to Ireland to play women’s soccer “because of sisterhood, validation and political visibility.” 

Under the new law, Rowling, who is from Scotland, said her tweets very well may result in her arrest. 

“I’m currently out of the country, but if what I’ve written here qualifies as an offence under the terms of the new act, I look forward to being arrested when I return to the birthplace of the Scottish Enlightenment,” Rowlings wrote.  

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, a Conservative Party member, stood up for Rowling’s exercise of free speech.  

“We should not be criminalizing people saying common sense things about biological sex,” he told reporters, according to Reuters. “Clearly that isn’t right.”  

Critics also said that the implementation of the law will fall upon Scottish police, who are in no way trained to handle such fraught political issues. 

The police union chief warned that asking police to regulate speech will simply increase the mistrust of law enforcement, which is already suffering from an onslaught of progressive attacks.  

Appearing on the BBC, David Kennedy, the general secretary of the Scottish Police Federation, said enforcing the law will “cause havoc with trust in police in Scotland” and would “certainly” reduce it, The Guardian reported. 

The law went into effect Monday.
