Sarah Jane Baker, a convicted kidnapper and attempted murderer turned trans activist, has been arrested after telling a Trans Pride rally to punch Terfs in the face.
Initially locked up for kidnapping and torturing her stepmother’s brother, Sarah was then found guilty of attempting to murder a fellow inmate by strangulation, leading to Sarah spending 30 years behind bars.
Released in 2019 to the accolade of Britain’s longest serving transgender prisoner, Sarah has since turned her attention to trans activism.
At a Trans+ Pride rally on Saturday, Sarah told the crowd in London: “I was gonna come here and be really fluffy and be really nice and say yeah be really lovely and queer and gay... Nah, if you see a TERF, punch them in the f****** face.”

Terf is the acronym for trans-exclusionary radical feminist and is often used as a slur directed towards those critical of trans ideology.
Though the police initially informed complainants that the call for violence was ‘hypothetical’ and allowed under free speech laws, Scotland Yard later stepped in to arrest Sarah for inciting violence.
When previously in prison, Sarah has admitted becoming involved in drug dealing, phone smuggling and sex work, as well as attempting to conduct gender reconstruction surgery on herself.
Speaking to the Anything Goes with James English podcast in 2020, Baker described how in December 2017 she resorted to dramatic measures by cutting of her own testicles.

She said: “I hated my body and I reached out to the staff and said to them, ''if you don't help me, I will help myself'', and they just laughed.
“I said, 'I will remove my own testicles, that's what I'll do'... I am genuinely a person of my word, if I tell you I'm going to do something then I'm going to do it.
“I've also been diagnosed with a personality disorder and one of my risk factors is being impulsive. It was an impulsive decision that I made to take a prison razor blade at 2 o'clock in the morning and to remove my own testicles.”
After being released from prison, Sarah underwent a controversial £10,000 taxpayer-funded sex-change and released a book called Transgender Behind Prison Walls.

On her campaign trail, Sarah has announced some policies including Making gas, electric, water and transport free to those who claim benefits; Releasing all pregnant people from prison; Ring-fencing a 15 per cent pay rise for NHS staff; and ensuring free admission to Kew Gardens.
Baker also supports free non-means-tested university education for all and is passionate about rolling out lockable bins to prevent fox raids.
A Met Police spokesman told MailOnline today: “A 53-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of incitement to violence. She has been taken into custody.
“The arrest on 12 July is in connection with an incident during the Trans Pride event in Westminster on 8 July. A video was widely shared on social media.”

In the video circulating online, Sarah can be seen being escorted down stairs by an officers before addressing the camera to say: ”Trans rights are human rights.
“They won't get rid of us, our existence is our resistance, you remember that.”
Baker addressed the crowd on Saturday holding an Antifa flag and sporting a red beret.
The Trans+ Pride event saw thousands march through London in what they referred to as the 'biggest ever' call for Trans rights.
A London Trans Pride spokesman said: “Sarah and many others in our community hold a lot of rage and anger and they have the right to express that anger through their words.
“We do not condone violence, we do not back a call to arms for violence of any kind. We do condone righteous anger and the right to the free speech that was expressed yesterday. We have and will continue to march in peace.”
