J.K. Rowling is receiving a new barrage of criticism after sharing an article that objected to Police Scotland’s announced policy of classifying rapists as women if they identify as such.The policy was reported Sunday, and the Scottish government is considering various pieces of transgender-inclusive legislation, such as ending medical testing for those who want to change their gender marker on legal documents.

Rowling, best known as the author of the Harry Potter books, tweeted an article with a headline that called the rape policy an “absurdity,” and she used language invoking George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984.
