JK Rowling Says She Would 'Happily Do 2 Years' in Prison for Anti-Trans Views

Emell Adolphus READ TIME: 2 MIN.

"Harry Potter" creator J.K. Rowling says that she is willing to serve time in Azkaban (prison in the Potterverse) for her views on transgender women.

As reported by Deadline, on Sunday Rowling responded to a Daily Mail story alleging that the British Labour government could make gender identity attacks a criminal offense. To that news, Rowling said to lock her up.

"I'll happily do two years if the alternative is compelled speech and forced denial of the reality and importance of sex," wrote Rowling on X.

Although this could be Rowling throwing meat to her trolls, her history of anti-trans statements say otherwise.

Rowling has become somewhat of an outspoken leader when it comes to biological women's rights. And while some outright disagree with her views, others take issue with the way that she expresses them.

According to Rowling, a court case and prison sentence would be "more fun than I've ever had on a red carpet," she said to her followers.

Imagining her prison duties, she wrote, "Hoping for the library, obviously, but I think I could do ok in the kitchen," she said. "Laundry might be a problem. I have a tendency to shrink stuff/turn it pink accidentally. Guessing that won't be a major issue if it's mostly scrubs and sheets, though."

To Rowling's comments, one social media user quipped, "All the guys in your books are wearing dresses soo..."

What's more is Rowling's pledge to serve time came after she posted a 2018 photo from Dazed magazine which read, "Repeat after us: Trans Women are Women," onto the offices of the British Ministry of Justice.

"No," she captioned the photo. Once a Terf, always a Terf. It seems.
