Instead of leaving J.K. Rowling be for her differing views, alphabet activists have continually targeted the best-selling author. On Saturday, she fired back after a trans group blatantly lied about attacking Standing for Women founder Kellie-Jay Keen.
Saturday in Auckland, New Zealand, Keen, also known as Posie Parker, was a central figure at a women’s rights rally in Albert Park in opposition to the so-called “rainbow jihadists” who would see men dominate women’s spaces. At that event, protesters hoisting the white, pink and blue banners celebrating gender dysphoria were filmed knocking down barricades and physically assaulting women, including Keen.
As part of a lengthy thread on the matter, Auckland Pride consistently maintained their denial of reality and wrote, “We also reject that there was any further physical threat from our community towards Parker. This is a baseless rumour that is being perpetrated by those who feel defeated by the events of today. We urge the media not to repeat these allegations without evidence.”
Rowling did not stand idly by and instead used her considerable platform to highlight the lies to her 14 million followers tweeting, “There are multiple videos of Kellie-Jay being assaulted. Women have become used to lies, threats of violence and outright denial of reality, but if you imagine anyone feels ‘defeated’, think again. Your men’s rights activists showed the world exactly who they are. #LetWomenSpeak.”

Independent journalist Andy Ngô was among those who thanked Rowling using her “wide reach to challenge the lies and propaganda,” and later shared video from the event that showed the “harrow moment @ThePosieParker was evacuated from the Auckland women’s rights rally following violence & threats of violence from the militant #trans mob. The low-information extremists were incited to violence because Kellie-Jay Keen calls trans women men & say they should not be allowed into women’s spaces.”

In the video, it appeared at one point as though someone had their hand gripping Keen’s throat while she was surrounded by attackers. At another moment, the women’s rights activist could be seen getting doused with an unknown red substance.

Keen’s activism has taken her around the world to promote women’s rights, including last year when she attended the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) women’s swimming championship in opposition the male swimmer Lia Thomas’ participation in the race.
At the time, she was recorded having a dispute over whether or not Thomas should be allowed in the competition when the swimmer’s defender asked “Are you a biologist?”
Pointedly, Keen fired back, “Oh my God — don’t be ridiculous. I’m not a vet, but I know what a dog is. You rely on stupid arguments because you don’t have an argument. I’m not an astrophysicist but I know what space is.”
Rowling’s defense of the activist earned her many more thanks on Twitter while Auckland Pride had resorted to prohibiting replies to their post.
They turned off replies. Great symbol of this movement’s willful contempt for the voices of women.
