The Trans Pride event held in London recently became the center of a heated debate after a transgender activist, Sarah Jane Baker, made a controversial speech inciting violence against those critical of Trans ideology.
The Controversial Speech
Baker, who served 30 years in jail for attempted murder, used her platform to encourage physical confrontation with anyone deemed a “TERF” (trans-exclusionary radical feminist).
Addressing the crowd, Baker expressed a departure from her original intention of delivering a positive and inclusive message.
Retort to Violence?
Instead, she declared, “Nah, if you see a TERF, punch them in the face.”
There Was Backlash
The statement elicited cheers from the audience but sparked fury on social media, with users condemning the call for violence and urging Trans Pride to take a stand against such behavior.
Violent Actions Are Not Exclusive to One Side?
Labour MP Clive Lewis acknowledged the widespread anger generated by Baker’s remarks but cautioned against generalizing the issue.
Violent Language Is Inexcusable
He pointed out that violent language and actions are not exclusive to one side of the debate.
Toxic Violence Is Wrong
However, Lewis emphasized that advocating violence is unequivocally wrong and called for a collective effort to step away from the toxic rhetoric.
The Controversy Is Gendered
In response to Lewis, Alice Sullivan, a professor of sociology at University College London, highlighted the gendered aspect of the controversy.
Violence Against Women and Girls
She stated that male violence against women and girls is not a matter of “both sides” and challenged Lewis to provide examples of feminists issuing similar threats.
Women Face Abuse When Talking About Rights
Sullivan argued that every time women gather to discuss their rights, they face abuse, making it crucial to condemn such behavior unequivocally.
The Largest Pride Event
The Trans Pride event, touted as the largest-ever demonstration for Trans rights, saw thousands marching through London, culminating in speeches by activists at Hyde Park Corner.
She Had a History of Violence
Baker, who took the stage with an Antifa flag, shared her controversial views amidst the event.
Torture and Murder!
It is worth noting that Baker’s criminal history includes charges of kidnapping, torturing her stepmother’s brother, and subsequent conviction for attempted murder while in prison.
She was released in 2019.
Before Baker’s speech, the Trans activists and their supporters paraded through Piccadilly and Trafalgar Square, displaying signs celebrating worldwide Pride festivities.
The Police Are Aware of the Video
Following the outcry, the Metropolitan Police announced that they are aware of a video recording capturing the speaker’s remarks during the Trans Pride event and are reviewing it to determine if further action is necessary.
Speech Shouldn’t Be Suppressed Unless It Incites Violence
Several Twitter users expressed their views on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “The same will happen to him if I see him punching a real woman.”
Another user commented, “I believe speech shouldn’t be suppressed unless it incites physical harm. Then the right to freedom of speech is usurped by the need to safeguard others physically.”
