Kellie-Jay Keen, also known as Posie Parker, has recently made headlines after making a series of threatening comments in a video broadcast on Twitter. The self-proclaimed “anti-trans activist” stated that women who stand in her way will be “annihilated” and spoke out against the fact that she was contacted by the Sussex Police. Parker claims she was being “persecuted” for “trying to stand up for women and girls”, and voiced her anger that the police officer involved was a woman.
The video also included Parker’s views on trans women, where she compared them to sexual predators and serial killers, using the incorrect term “autogynepiles” to describe them. Parker is scheduled to bring her “Let Women Speak” tour to Glasgow on Sunday, February 5th, where her events are regularly met with fierce opposition from trans rights protestors.
The controversial tour has not only sparked protests from the LGBTQ+ community, but it has also received criticism from several activists who were caught on camera quoting Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf in their speeches against trans rights. The term “big lie”, which was coined by Hitler in Mein Kampf, was used to spread horrific propaganda against Jewish people in Nazi Germany, and it is not the first time that Parker’s events have been met with opposition. At a rally in Newcastle last month, Parker’s rally was drowned out by an anti-hate cabaret group and members of the “furry” community.
