A women’s rights activist claims the pro-trans lobby called her a Nazi and made sick slurs hoping her children would develop cancer.
Kellie-Jay Keen, who founded Standing For Women, told MailOnline her events were hit with a number of threats and warnings.
She spoke out after officers from Sussex Police were alerted to a number of threatening messages directed at her.
They included numerous branding Ms. Keen – also known as Posie Parker – branding a TERF and urging people to “fight her any way you see fit”.
It preceded a planned Let Women Speak event in Brighton on September 18, which is billed as a “Speakers’ Corner Tour”.
Ms Keen – a mother of four – has often drawn the ire of pro-trans activists because of her views on women’s rights.
She told MailOnline: ‘I was called a Nazi for saying I don’t think women have penises. Once you can paint someone as the most hateful person in society – a Nazi – I guess anything goes.
“I’ve had a lot of threats over the years, being told they hope my kids have cancer.
“Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for transgender activists to threaten women who want to speak out about our rights – JK Rowling is a prime example.
“We are subject to a wide range of threatening messages.
“I think anything about social media also depersonalizes people. We have been dehumanized by the term TERF. There are quite disturbed people within this group, as well as others I suppose.
“It’s a very effective campaign that we’re supposed to believe that men who want to call themselves women are the most vulnerable group in society.

A tweet from anonymous group Reclaim Pride Brighton has been accused of inciting violence
“When I was a little younger I could walk to Tesco with my kids and a man would tell me what he thought of my appearance. As women, we are unfortunately used to these regular infractions. I think the whole issue of identity politics is poison.
“The event will take place. We have sent information to Sussex Police on the number of people expected. They were actually really good.
This is the latest development in an ongoing debate about the rights of biologically born women versus those who have transitioned from a different gender.
In recent months, the discussion has seen the Globe Theater set to make Joan of Arc non-binary and a feminist removed from a gay pride march in Cardiff.
Remarks against his upcoming event included one from the Reclaim Brighton Pride account.
He said: “It is our duty to fight fascism when it tries to enter our communities.
‘Fight Posie Parker by any means you see fit. Love, rage and solidarity.’
A split appeal urged people to cover their faces and make it clear ‘she’s not welcome’
A trans activist and a woman are seen during the clash near the statue in Manchester in May
The two groups of activists clashed as they fought for position near the statue of Emmeline Pankhurt in St. Peter’s Square, Manchester, earlier this year.
Ms. Keen founded the group SFW which campaigns for gender-based rights and the protection of the word woman.
Earlier this year, one of the movement’s supporters was ‘roughed up’ by a gang of masked trans activists.
She was attacked during a Manchester Trans Rise Up (MTRU) counter-protest next to the city’s statue of Emmeline Pankhurst in St Peter’s Square in May.
Trans activists have arrived to disrupt SFW’s speaking out event outside the statue as part of an event which said it was aimed at reclaiming ‘a part of Manchester for women’s voices’.
Ms Keen was visited by police in July after a complaint about her comments about transgender issues on YouTube.

Hours after Dr Harrop’s complaint, Primesight confirmed that the billboards would be taken down that evening
A clip had been released by transgender charity Mermaids, which showed a trans woman describing the feeling of being a ‘sexual mermaid’.
Ms Keen said of the interviewees: “They’ve probably been forced to think that talking to children about their sexuality is somewhat liberating for those children because those children can then be sexual beings at an earlier and earlier age, which is linked to the queer theory, which has everything to do with pedophile apology.
Wiltshire Police said at the time the officers had come to offer “advice”.
And in 2018, a billboard with the definition of a woman written on it, funded by Ms Keen, was taken down after a Twitter activist complained he was “transphobic”.
She raised £700 for the poster to be displayed in Liverpool for a fortnight to coincide with the Labor Party Conference.
The poster, on the side of the former Gaumont cinema on Gredington Street in Toxteth, Liverpool, carried Google’s definition of a woman – “adult human woman”.
But it was removed after Dr Adrian Harrop, 31, who is not transgender, complained to billboard company Primesight that it would serve to make trans women feel unsafe.
Sussex Police said of the upcoming event: ‘Sussex Police are aware of an event to be held at the level on Saturday September 18, as well as plans for a protest.
“Officers are in contact with event organizers as well as protesters, and preparations are in place to ensure the safety of everyone involved and to minimize disruption to the wider community.”
