Megyn Kelly takes a bold stand in defense of JK Rowling and free speech, while she still can

Faced with ideological tyranny, a bestselling author’s bold challenge to authorities enforcing “the gender cult” echoed across oceans prompting an in-kind stand from Megyn Kelly.

Monday, a new law went into effect in Scotland seeking to silent dissent against the rainbow jihad and J.K. Rowling was having none of it. In a lengthy thread that used April Fool’s Day to make a mockery of sex offenders and deviants that hide behind their identity as a protected class, as well as their defenders, the famed author of the “Harry Potter” series concluded, “I look forward to being arrested when I return to the birthplace of the Scottish Enlightenment.”

In a show of solidarity, and as a demonstration that only the tyranny that is tolerated can be forced upon a free people, the podcast host shared Rowling’s fiery commentary with a promise to amplify the voice of any in need, while she still could.

“Hey @jk_rowling & any Scot — whatever true fact you need said about the gender cult, just shoot me a note and I will say it on the air on my show to millions,” Kelly wrote on X. “Scotland can’t imprison those of us on this side of the pond; (for now) we still have free speech in America, which is why I can say: Men cannot become women. Hes are not shes. Those surgical wounds are not vaginas. Facial feminization will never make a man female. Men who play women’s sports are vile cheaters. Men do not belong in women’s bathrooms, locker rooms, sororities, prisons or OBGYN offices. Men cannot have babies. Chest feeding is child abuse.”

For her part, Rowling’s no-nonsense defense of biological reality and women’s rights led her to post Monday, “In passing the Scottish Hate Crime Act, Scottish lawmakers seem to have placed higher value on the feelings of men performing their idea of femaleness, however misogynistically or opportunistically, than on the rights and freedoms of actual women and girls.”

“The new legislation is wide open to abuse by activists who wish to silence those of us speaking out about the dangers of eliminating women’s and girls’ single-sex spaces,” she continued, “the nonsense made of crime data if violent and sexual assaults committed by men are recorded as female crimes, the grotesque unfairness of allowing males to compete in female sports, the injustice of women’s jobs, honours and opportunities being taken by trans-identified men, and the reality and immutability of biological sex.”

“Freedom of speech and belief,” the author concluded in part after recounting the ideological minefield made of protecting the sensibilities of alphabet activists, “are at an end in Scotland if the accurate description of biological sex is deemed criminal.”

After throwing down the gauntlet, Rowling appeared to prove that Scotland was run by spineless authoritarians afraid of the PR nightmare that would come from carting away one of the world’s most beloved living children’s authors for speaking her mind.

Tuesday, she shared word from Police Scotland that her comments would not be treated as criminal and she wrote, “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.”

Still further, she offered the same promise that Kelly had as someone suggested, “Of course they won’t go after someone that has the means to defend themselves. They will target people that can’t, until it becomes common enough to target you.”

“If they go after any woman for simply calling a man a man,” said Rowling as she and Kelly were equally lauded, “I’ll repeat that woman’s words and they can charge us both at once.”
