J.K. Rowling Won’t Face Action for “Misgendering” Under Scotland’s New Hate Crime Law

JK Rowling is the only woman on earth I respect.

And she cannot be stopped.

Her crusade against trannies will end in total victory.


J.K. Rowling will not face any action under Scotland’s new hate crime law after she challenged it by asserting on social media that a number of transgender women were men, police said on Tuesday.

The Harry Potter author, a prominent gender critical campaigner, made the comments on Monday, the day that the crime of “stirring up hatred” relating to age, disability, religion, sexual orientation and transgender identity came into effect.

She was backed by British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who said people should not be criminalised for saying “common sense” things about biological sex.

Police Scotland said it had received complaints in relation to Rowling’s social media post.

The comments are not assessed to be criminal and no further action will be taken,” a spokesperson said.
Scotland’s First Minister Humza Yousaf had said the bill was about “protecting people from a rising tide of hatred”.

“Unless your behaviour is threatening or abusive and intends to stir up hatred, then you have nothing to worry about in terms of the new offences being created,” he said.

If she was anyone else, she’d be in prison.

Women are not protected as a group, but the Scottish National Party-led government in Edinburgh is looking at separate reforms to target misogyny.

Scotland has been at the forefront of extending rights to the transgender community but a previous attempt to make it easier to change a legal gender was blocked by London over concerns it would impinge existing equality legislation.

The new hate crime law has also faced criticism over its impact on freedom of speech and concerns that it could be used to silence some views, including from those who advocate for women-only spaces.

Rowling tested the law by listing 10 trans women, including a convicted rapist, sex abusers and high profile activists, on X and saying they were men.

She’s also hilarious.
