A transgender activist who served 30 years in jail for attempted murder has told the crowd at a Trans Pride march if they saw a ‘TERF’, they should punch them in the face.
Sarah Jane Baker was one of the speakers at the Trans+ Pride event in London yesterday and used her speech to call for violence against those critical of trans ideology.
She told the cheering crowd: ‘I was gonna come here and be really fluffy and be really nice and say yeah be really lovely and queer and gay… Nah, if you see a TERF, punch them in the f****** face.’
Baker’s speech incited fury on social media and users called for Trans Pride to take a stance against the violence.
Labour MP Clive Lewis shared people’s anger over the comment and wrote: ‘Advocating violence against others is wrong & this is no exception. But as you’ll be aware violent language and actions are not unique to one side on this issue.
