British police interrogated a mother, under threat of arrest, after she tweeted her opinion that it’s wrong to change a person’s sex characteristics, which she said amounts to castration for males.
In a statement on the website for HandsAcrossTheAisleWomen, Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull writes she is waiting for word from the Crown Prosecution Service in the U.K. on whether she will be charged for stating her opinion.
She was reported to police by Susie Green, the CEO of the pro-transgender Mermaids UK, who took her 16-year-old son to Thailand for “sex-reassignment” surgery in 2010.
The Christian Institute explained West Yorkshire police took up the case only “after undergoing training from Green’s organization.”
Keen-Minshull’s tweets last year were blunt.
Criticizing a pro-transgender campaign by Magnum Ice Cream, she wrote: “Dear @MagnumIceCream you do know the CEO of Mermaids took her son to Thailand at 16 to be castrated right! Transing kids is abuse.”
U.K. law prohibits sex-reassignment
