Interview with Jessica Parker for the BBC. Link below.
The interview took place after one of the fourteen founders of Stonewall, Matthew Parris, criticised the organisation. He is not along among the founders but joins Simon Fanshawe who also believes the former gay lobby group has lost its way. Here is why Parris is disillusioned. 👇
Kelley is dismissive of his concerns.
It is worth remembering that Stonewall was formed to defend Gay rights during the era of Section 28. This piece of legislation was introduced under Margaret Thatcher’s government with the intention of stopping the “promotion” of homosexuality. The legislation was repealed in the year 2000, in Scotland, and in 2003 in England and Wales. This has been very hard to live down for the Conservative party and is partly explains why there has been a slow response to the promotion of Gender Identity Ideology in schools. To neophytes it looks as if any opposition is akin to eighties style homophobia. In reality, the idea gender non-conforming children should be medicalised, via puberty blockers, followed by cross sex hormones, disproportionately affects proto-gay kids. These are the statistics on referrals to the U.K. Gender Clinic. Natal females are in blue, males in orange.
After the repeal of section 28, Stonewall still had work to do, to provide legal protection for gay couples. In 2004 legislation was passed to enable gay couples to enter a Civil Partnership; prior to this gay couples could find themselves unable to inherit their husband, or wife’s, assets or even to be in charge of funeral arrangements.. In 2010 the Equality Act was passed; which made sexual orientation a legally, protected characteristic. Finally in March 2014 the same sex marriage act passed into law. Stonewall found itself with less headline grabbing work to do. In 2015 the gay rights charity accepted $100,000 from the Arcus Foundation, money which was conditional on Stonewall adding the T to LGB.

So, when Nancy Kelley became CEO, of Stonewall, it was a very different organisation to the one her predecessor, Ruth Hunt, inherited.
Stonewall now finds itself having the defend the idea that Lesbians have a penis and it is no longer “SEXual orientation” but “same gender attraction”. Unsurprisingly many people oppose this and after trying to impose a blanket ban, arguing for #NoDebate, on discussing Gender Identity Ideology, Stonewall now find themselves opposed by many who would have been its natural supporters.
Stonewall now find themselves opposing the Equality and Human Rights Commission who, somewhat belatedly, came out in favour of women’s right to discuss this issue. (The previous Chair of the EHRC, David Isaacs, came via Stonewall, which may have coloured his views).
Stonewall were clearly rattled by the intervention of the EHRC, who also cautioned the Scottish government about their plan to allow “self-identification” as the sex you wish you were. This was a provocation too far, for the Trans Lobby group, who appealed to the United Nations to intervene. The EHRC is accredited, as a Human Rights organisation, by the United Nations and, it seems, Stonewall wished to see this removed.
Kelley’s response to the EHRC is displayed below:
Writing this in the wake of Salman Rushdie’s stabbing gives new urgency on the right to defend free speech. 👇
Nancy denies that Stonewall are giving bad advice to the members of its protection racket, oops, Diversity Schemes.
The new spin from Stonewall when they are caught lying about the law.
Here is what Akua Reindorf said in the above mentioned report: “the law as Stonewall would prefer it to be rather than the law as it is”.
The attempt to label womens rights campaigners as akin to one of the most egregious forms of racism is rather too common in Trans Supremacist circles.
It is no accident. Accusations of “transphobia” have been denuded of their power, likely through their over abundant use, hence the escalation. Here is Judith Butler comparing us to fascists. 😳
Nancy Kelley is what I call a Vichy Feminist. How any self-respecting Lesbian could be the midwife for this regressive, mysogynistic, lesbian hating ideology is beyond my underst££ding.
