Now isn’t she crafty.

Social media comments made by JK Rowling challenging Scotland’s new hate crime law are not being treated as criminal, Police Scotland has said. The Harry Potter author described several transgender women as men, including convicted prisoners, trans activists and other public figures.

The new law creates a new crime of “stirring up hatred” relating to protected characteristics. The force said complaints had been received but no action would be taken.

Reacting to the news, Ms Rowling posted on X: “I hope every woman in Scotland who wishes to speak up for the reality and importance of biological sex will be reassured by this announcement, and I trust that all women – irrespective of profile or financial means – will be treated equally under the law.

HaHA. See what she did? If they had taken action, there would have been an eruption. Since they didn’t take action, she’s set a precedent.


Katie Neeves, a trans woman who was appointed a UN Women UK delegate, was mentioned by Ms Rowling in a previous thread on X. The author claimed Ms Neeves “switched from straight man to lesbian at the age of 48”.

Ms Neeves told BBC News she was “very disappointed” with Police Scotland. She said: “JK Rowling is a bully and this act was designed to stop bullying, and if they’re not going to enforce it then that’s very disappointing.”

Yeeeah you’d like that, wouldn’t you, Martin. Who is the bully here? Is it really JK Rowling, who doesn’t want to see people thrown in prison for saying men are not women? Really?
