J. K. Rowling on the Absurdity of Logging Rapists as Female | National Review


J. K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame has once again ridden valiantly into the gender wars — this time to object to Police Scotland’s policy of recording rapes as being committed by women, should the rapist identify as female. Detective Superintendent Fil Capaldi explained that “Police Scotland requires no evidence or certification as proof of biological sex or gender identity other than a person’s self-declaration.”

“War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. The Penised Individual Who Raped You Is a Woman,” Rowling wrote on Twitter, invoking George Orwell.

In Scottish law, the crime of rape requires a penis — and women don’t have penises. It’s one thing to pretend on an interpersonal basis that some poor struggling man with gender dysphoria is really a woman. But rapists? Is Police Scotland so concerned with the hurt feelings of violent criminals that they are willing to compromise accurate data? It’s by the same twisted logic that male sex offenders are being put in female prisons.
