Through your X/Twitter, J.K. Rowling (‘Harry Potter’) used April Fools’ Day to spread transphobia and make new attacks on the trans community.

In a series of posts, the author highlighted several criminals – all identified as trans women –, before writing:

“I am just kidding. Obviously, all of the people mentioned are not women. None of them.”

His attack was a response to a new law in Scotland, which was created specifically to “stem the tide of hate”.

Supporters of the new law say the measure provides greater protection against threats and abusive behavior that are “intended to incite hatred” based on age, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity.

“The new legislation is open to abuse by activists who wish to silence those who speak out about the dangers of eliminating women-only spaces. It will be absurd to see criminal data on violent and sexual assaults committed by men being recorded as female crimes. It is a grotesque injustice to allow men to compete in women’s sports and steal jobs, honors and opportunities from women,” declared the author.

Rowling He also challenged the new law and mocked: “I’m looking forward to being arrested when I return to my hometown in Scotland.”

Previously, the journalist India Willoughby had reported the author to the police after a transphobic speech made by the novelist (via Variety).

Willoughby revealed he reported Rowling to Northumbria Police for repeatedly getting her pronouns wrong as part of an ongoing social media feud.

Don’t forget to watch:

“JK Rowling definitely committed a crime. I am legally a woman. She knows I’m a woman and called me a man.”the announcer stated. “It is a protected characteristic and this constitutes a breach of both the Equality Act and the Gender Recognition Act. She tweeted this to 14 million followers.”

She continues: “I reported JK Rowling to the police for what she said, which I don’t know if it will be treated as a hate crime, malicious communications – but it is a direct offense as far as I’m concerned.”

In a statement to Varietya Northumbria Police spokesperson said: “This Monday, March 4th, we received a complaint about a post on social media. We are currently waiting to speak further with the complainant.”

Through XRowling responded to Willoughby’s comments, saying she had consulted a lawyer who told her that “Not only did I have a clearly winnable case against India Willoughby for defamation, but India’s obsessive attack on me over the past few years may meet the legal threshold for harassment.”

The writer also claims that “Gender critical views can be protected by law as a philosophical belief. No law forces anyone to pretend to believe that India is a woman.”

Finally, Rowling says:

“Aware as I am that it is a crime to lie to the authorities, I will simply have to explain to the police that, in my opinion, India is a classic example of the male narcissist who lives in a state of perpetual rage that he cannot force women to accept. it according to its own value.”

It is worth remembering that, recently, Rowling reaffirmed her transphobic stance in a series of tweets, responding to questions about the possibility of being arrested if transphobic comments became crimes in the United Kingdom.

In response to a bill that discussed the possibility of attacks on gender identity becoming a criminal offense, Rowling stated:

“I would happily serve two years if the alternative is forced speech and forced denial of the reality and importance of sex.”
