Tasmanian Senator Fires Back At Posie Parker: ‘Vile, Disgraceful’

Greens Tasmanian Senator Nick McKim has bestowed a brutal nickname for anti-trans activist Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull, after she went after his family with hateful comments.

Known online under the alias Posie Parker, has been touring around Australia for about a week now. And while her supporters have shown up at her rallies, they’ve been vastly outnumbered by trans rights activists.

She’s currently travelling around the country as part of her Let Women Speak campaign and has so far travelled to Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Hobart.

At her rally in Melbourne, neo-Nazis and protesters that seek violence on queer folk were in attendance. It was this rally that caused many politicians to voice their “disgust” at her campaign.

In a fiery speech in the Senate on Wednesday 22nd March, McKim called Keen-Minshull a “pathetic excuse for a human being” after Keen-Minshull reportedly called McKim’s partner and fellow Greens MP Cassy O’Connor a “groomer.”

“I say to Posie Parker, or whatever pseudonym Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull wants to go by, that what she did yesterday was vile, disgraceful, untrue and disgusting,” he said.

“It gives us a window into her dark and warped soul.”

McKim has claimed that Keen-Minshull has admitted that she “wasn’t a feminist.”

“I agree with her that she’s not a feminist. There are plenty of transphobes like her who are not feminists. We need to call Posie [and her] ilk what they actually are. That is trans-exclusionary right-wing dropkicks – T-E-R-D-S,” he said.

“They are not TERFs; they are TERDS, and that’s how we should describe them: T-E-R-D-S.”

McKim’s Family

McKim’s passionate speech denouncing Keen-Minshull comes after the latter accused O’Connor of being a “groomer.”

The two MPs are parents to O’Connor’s trans son Jasper, who attended the pro-trans counter-protest in Hobart with O’Connor.

Jasper was seen in various live streams standing behind his mother, holding a sign that promoted trans rights. He, unfortunately, became the victim of a Twitter user who posted various pictures of McKim’s son during his transition.

“Another pathetic excuse for a human being, who goes by the name of Kimberley Allen, deadnamed my stepson Jasper Lees on Twitter,” McKim said.

“Deliberately misgendered him on Twitter and said the most vile and disgusting things about him. Well, Kimberley Allen, you can get in the bin alongside Posie Parker.”

“Jasper has more humanity in his little toenail than either of you have in your entire bodies.”

  1. Please can you keep her? We don’t want her back here.
    It’s so heartening to see these comments, so different to the UK which is getting close to removing all trans rights, and no-one, not newspapers (not even left -leaning ones like the Guardian), not TV, not politicians, not even the Human Rights Commission are standing up for trans people. I imagine it was like this in Germany in 1938.

  2. It’s wonderful to see activists and politicians coming together to denounce the evil TERD but she should never have been allowed in the country in the first place to promote Hatred and transphobia…….hopefully this can be used as an example in future to take a tougher stance on these bigots and prevent them coming into the country, which we sadly weren’t successful in stopping this time!

  3. I’m sure delightful actress Parker Posey would choke to learn that an opportunistic bottle blonde who takes her styling tips from an old John Waters movie, has merely done a lazy flip of her name to become a serial pest. This is the soft target politics cultivated by the G.O.P. in the U.S. and closer to home, FNQ. It will always find an audience because, ….well…. dickheads.

  4. Agreed posy what ever go away stay away abd don’t ever come back.
    Your a troll and should be treated lije one.

  5. Well said Mr. McKim. Why is this posey woman even out here? Tell her to f**k off back to England and keep her vile, hate mongering attitudes to herself. I’m all for free speech, but not when it promotes hatred.
