"Bring on the court case I say," she tweeted. "It'll be more fun than I've ever had on a red carpet."

The world’s most famous TERF, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, is making news with her latest anti-trans tweet, saying that she’d rather go to prison than to correctly gender a trans person.

The tweet came after Rowling tweeted an image that said “Repeat After Us: Trans Women Are Women” and added the caption “No.”

A musician named Scott Spalding, who has tweeted anti-vax and anti-trans things before, replied saying “Vote Labour, get a two year stretch,” in reference to a recent Daily Mail story that said a potential Labour government in England would result in a law making misgendering a hate crime “punishable by up to two years in prison.”

Rowling, who has shown herself to be gleeful whenever she can tear down trans people in the past, once again stood strong on her hateful beliefs.

“I’ll happily do two years if the alternative is compelled speech and forced denial of the reality and importance of sex,” she tweeted. “Bring the court case, I say. It’ll be more fun than I’ve ever had on a red carpet.”

Rowlings spelled it out simply: she’d rather go to prison than correctly gender a trans person. Her hate for the trans community has gotten so all-consuming, she’s put it above everything else in her life, including basic freedom.

Moreso, she has once again made it clear that she finds it “fun” to hate trans people and insult them publicly. Rowling, an author who has brought joy to millions of children across the world, says that a public platform for her anti-trans bullying would make her happier than her fame ever did.

Rowling should take a lesson from legendary swimmer Diana Nyad, who in 2022 wrote an opinion piece for The Washington Post in which she said trans women had an unfair advantage over cis women in sports.

Nyad now says that after listening to “clearly more educated experts” and doing a deep dive into her feelings and the science behind the issue, she is “firmly on the side of inclusion” and understands that “all women are negatively affected by the ways transgender women are targeted by discrimination and abuse in sports and elsewhere.”

While people like Nyad are actually using their hearts and minds when it comes to trans issues, sadly, others like Rowling continue to use nothing but hate.
