Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull, also known as Posie Parker, has said that she is used to being accused of being transphobic, but she was not prepared for photos of her children to be harvested from “private accounts”.

Ms Keen-Minshull told talkRADIO’s Matthew Wright: “Ever since speaking up for women, I have been met with accusations of being transphobic or bigoted.

“It has been three years now so I am pretty used to that.

“What I am not used to is what has happened since.

“Somebody decided to set up an account in my husband’s name and they have obviously harvested photos of my husband, my children, and myself from private accounts.

“They must have done that some time ago because we have all really tightened our security.

“Prior to that, a chap on Twitter also published exactly where my children go to school.

“Another guy from Liverpool has published pictures of my children before too.”

The personal information of Ms Keen-Minshull was leaked including her family home address and videos of her children were posted on Sunday night from a fake social media account pretending to be her husband.

Ms Keen-Minshull’s children are aged 16, 15, 12 and 9.


‘He was being impersonated’

Ms Keen-Minshull, who runs the group Standing for Women, has reported the incident to the police.

She said: “I saw it at about 7:30on Sunday evening and immediately my husband got in touch with Twitter to say he was being impersonated.

“We had to send ID but I still think that took eight or nine hours to come down.

“When I saw the video of my boys and my husband that had already had 200 views.”

She added: “I reported it to the police but I am still waiting on them to call. They have reported it as harassment.”

A billboard in Liverpool, paid for by supporters of Standing For Women, was recently taken down by the advertising company that put it up, following a complaint from LGBT+ activist and doctor Adrian Harrop.

The poster had on it the definition of a woman on it and was organised to be up for the duration of the Labour Party Conference in late September.

'You deserve to be crushed' 

Matthew Wright also put to Ms Keen-Minshull a list of sites she has been banned from including Twitter twice for “hateful conduct” and from Mumsnet.

When asked about what she has been accused of, and whether it was true, she said “of course not”.

She said: “I just think we are in a time where the modern mentality is to try and control everything that anyone can say.

“There is no nuance. You either 100% agree with the group think or you are an outlier and you deserve to be crushed.

“Especially women with voices about what a woman is.

“We are frequently doxxed, silenced and intimidated.

“As soon as you say to someone anything about any sort of bigotry, you silence them because people feel that they can’t defend their position.”


‘It is too disturbing’

Ms Keen-Minshull went on to say she did not have "a problem" with the trans-community. 

She said: “I don’t really have a problem with the trans-community, I just don’t think men are women.”

She added: “I think it is preposterous, which bit would be born into the wrong body?

“Is it the brain? Are we then going to go down the pink and blue brain route?

“Until our hormones kick in, we are not really that different anyway and so I am not going to buy it.

“I am not going to buy it where there really is something where you can be born in the wrong body – it is too disturbing and does not make any sense.”
