harron Davies claims her children’s school has been targeted by trans activists after she shared her views on who can compete in women’s sport.
The former Olympic swimmer says she has been called “every name under the sun” after speaking out against male-born athletes competing in female categories.
“Just activists ringing every single job I have, ringing every single charity, ringing my children’s schools, abusing my kids, calling me every name under the sun,” Davies told the Off Air podcast.
“[They say] I am a bigot, I’m a homophobe, obviously a transphobe. I’m even a racist which I find hilarious because I have got mixed-race kids.
“They use these terms not to actually mean it, they use it to bully. They use it to shut you up and to stop you trying to debate and present the science.”
Davies said the abuse she has received was misogynistic and claimed a lot of male athletes have not backed her in her fight against trans women competing in sport.
She added: “I think they keep their heads down because they don’t want it to affect their revenue.
“It feels like it is totally and utterly a men’s rights movement. Historically women, get hit over the head with this “be kind” slogan.”
