Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is trolling followers of gender ideology just days after she nearly received a criminal charge for her so-called “transphobic” comments online.

“Happy Birthing Parent Day to all whose large gametes were fertilised resulting in small humans whose sex was assigned by doctors making mostly lucky guesses,” she wrote on Elon Musk’s social media platform X. In the United Kingdom, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent.

She followed this up with a post mocking the backlash she inevitably received from left-wing X users, such as Socialism Done Left and Jeff Tiedrich.

“Devastated and bewildered that my embrace of inclusive language has angered its most enthusiastic devotees,” she wrote in her follow up. “So let’s just say: Happy Mother’s Day to all females who’ve raised children.”

Last week, UK television newscaster India Willoughby reported Rowling to the police for the crime of “misgendering.”

“I have contacted Northumbria Constabulary,” Willoughby wrote. Rowling had said Willoughby “didn’t become a woman” but is “just cosplaying a misogynistic male fantasy of what a woman is.” She later elaborated that Willoughby is “just a man reveling in his misogynistic performance of what he thinks ‘woman’ means: narcissistic, shallow and exhibitionist.”

“J.K. Rowling definitely committed a crime,” Willoughby claimed to Byline TV on March 6th. “I’m legally a woman, she knows I’m a woman, and she called me a man!  It’s a protected characteristic and that is a breach of both the Equalities Act and the Gender Recognition Act. She’s tweeted that out to 14 million followers.” She confirmed that she reported the Young Adult fiction writer to the police.

“To deliberately—and that is the key word—misgender me, knowing who I am, is grossly offensive,” she continued. “It is a hate crime, and it should be treated just as somebody calling a Black person the N word.”

On March 9th, the Northumbria Police dismissed Willoughby’s claims, saying they did not meet the criteria. “While we recognise the upset this may have caused, the post was reviewed and did not meet the criminal threshold,” they wrote.

Rowling had shot back at Willoughby on X for her threats. When her lawyers warned her that Willoughby’s evidence might meet the criminal threshold, she said she “ignored this advice because I couldn’t be bothered giving India the publicity he so clearly craves … Aware as I am that it’s an offence to lie to law enforcement, I’ll simply have to explain to the police that, in my view, India is a classic example of the male narcissist who lives in a state of perpetual rage that he can’t compel women to take him at his own valuation.”
