Famed “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling is daring Scottish police to arrest her for violating a new law known as the “Hate Crime Act.” The edict, which went into effect Monday, outlaws “stirring up hatred against any of the protected groups covered by the Bill," according to the Scottish Parliament’s website. One of the so-called “protected groups” is the "transgender identity." 

In violation of Scotland's new speech code, Rowling posted a social media thread Monday listing transgender “women” who had been sentenced to various crimes, including sexual assault of a 10-year-old, possession of 16,000 illicit images of children, and rape.

Toward the end of the thread, Rowling wrote, "Only kidding. Obviously, the people mentioned in the above tweets aren't women at all, but men, every last one of them."

Rowling went on to condemn the “Hate Crime Act,” stating that in passing the law, “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.”

As Rowling demonstrated by the examples in her thread, the radical transgender movement puts real females in danger. “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,” Rowling continued, “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,” Rowling asserted. “Freedom of speech and belief are at an end in Scotland if the accurate description of biological sex is deemed criminal.”

Rowling ended the post by challenging the Scottish police to arrest her for standing up for truth and women. "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.
