J.K. Rowling Would ‘Happily Do Two Years’ in Prison than Deny ‘Reality’ of Biological Sex

J.K. Rowling declared she’d rather go to jail than submit to “compelled speech” as the European Union steps up its censorship efforts.

The popular Harry Potter author has come under an intense barrage of hatred in recent years after her refusal to deny the biological reality that there are only two sexes: male and female. Now, as the European Union (EU) looks to crack down on free speech online with the Digital Services Act (DSA), Rowling has again tackled the issue of free speech, insisting she’d rather face a court case and potential jail than buckle to enforced narratives. 

While the UK is not part of the EU, the UK Labour Party has a plan to criminalize non-LGBTQ-approved speech. The war for free speech is intensifying in Europe.

On Oct. 17, Rowling posted on X (formerly Twitter) an image of a message projected on a wall, saying, “Repeat After Us: Trans Women Are Women.” The term “transgender women” refers to biological males. Rowling’s brief comment on the message was an emphatic, “No.”

Musician Scott Spalding responded by referring to the socialist Labour Party’s plan in the UK, where Rowling is from, to penalize “misgendering” with up to two years in prison. “Vote Labour, get a two year stretch!” he posted, replying to Rowling.

Rowling answered, “I'll happily do two years if the alternative is compelled speech and forced denial of the reality and importance of sex. Bring on the court case, I say. It'll be more fun than I've ever had on a red carpet.” She then appeared to joke with another X user about doing laundry in prison. But sadly, the war against free speech in Europe — seemingly now more than ever — is no joke.

The Harry Potter author has been targeted numerous times by the cancel culture mob over her comments dispelling the left’s radical “transgender” narrative. A number of the actors from the Harry Potter movies criticized her. Rowling’s name was even removed from places including a museum exhibit and even the Harry Potter book covers printed by one bookbinder!
