The new hate crime bill has JK Rowling daring police to arrest her and saying free speech is 'at an end in Scotland'

 April 3, 2024

According to the new hate crime bill, J.K. Rowling's free speech is "at an end in Scotland," and she has dared the police to arrest her.

Author J.K. Rowling of "Harry Potter" challenged the Scottish police to arrest her for allegedly insulting men after Monday's implementation of the Hate Crime Act, according to Fox News.

The website of the Scottish Parliament states that the "Hate Crime and Public Order Bill" includes "a new crime of stirring up hatred against any of the protected groups covered by the Bill," one of which is "transgender identity."

Rowling started a lengthy social media post by naming a number of male offenders who had recently claimed to be transgender in the days leading up to their sentencing for different offenses. Rape, being in possession of 16,000 explicit photos of children, and sexually assaulting a 10-year-old were among the charges.

More of Rowling's Comments

In an April Fools' Day joke, Rowling exposed her false enthusiasm after approvingly illuminating ten different "women," none of whom were criminals: "Only kidding. Obviously, the people mentioned in the above tweets aren't women at all, but men, every last one of them."

"In passing the Scottish Hate Crime Act, 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 wrote.

She continued by saying that "For several years now, Scottish women have been pressured by their government and members of the police force to deny the evidence of their eyes and ears, repudiate biological facts and embrace a neo-religious concept of gender that is unprovable and untestable.

"The re-definition of 'woman' to include every man who declares himself one has already had serious consequences for women's and girls’ rights and safety in Scotland, with the strongest impact felt, as ever, by the most vulnerable, including female prisoners and rape survivors."

"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," Rowling added.

"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," Rowling wrote.

Possible Investigation

The tweet that Rowling posted could be the subject of an investigation by the police, according to Siobhan Brown, the Minister of Community Safety in Scotland, who was quoted in "The Telegraph."

"It could be reported and it could be investigated. Whether or not the police would think it was criminal is up to Police Scotland for that," Brown said.

Rowling, who has taken a vocal stance against the invasion of women's spaces by transgender ideology, was not the only person who voiced her disapproval of Scotland's new law.

Jim Sillars, the former deputy leader of the Scottish National Party, allegedly initiated a campaign to "resist the Hate Crime Act and campaign for its repeal," as reported by "The Telegraph."

"Today on their own admission, Police Scotland will translate itself from a service into a force for one particular purpose — the pursuit of people who speak their minds," Sillars said. This law "inflicts a deep wound on the face of Scottish society."

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
