Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Angela said: “The last five years of my life have been hell.

“I have been relentlessly the target of trans rights activists and their witch-hunt campaign to sow fear in anyone who does not agree with their point of view.

“I have been called ‘terf’ – a radical trans exclusionary feminist – a transphobic, hateful fanatic, a Nazi, on social media and some of my personal information has been posted online.

“My products are based on my own opinions. I do not accept the idea that anyone can have a cervix. It’s simple biology that only women do. It’s ridiculous that we can’t even say that – how is biology now considered hate speech?

“What I have experienced firsthand from trans activists has been intimidating and frightening – it should not be allowed to happen.

“No one should be subjected to the abuse that I and many other women endure on a daily basis. It’s disgusting and just not fair.

“Transgender activists are trying to stifle free speech by demolishing anyone who wishes to express critical views on gender – this is unacceptable! “

Angela, who is from France, has a range of products that she sells on her website, Wild Womyn Workshop, which includes badges that read ‘Trans Women Are Men’, ‘Protect Women’s Spaces’ and’ Female biology is not bigotry ‘to name a few.

She started her business in September 2017, but immediately faced abuse and opposition from trans activists who called her “worthless b *** h”.

She added, “I was in an abusive relationship with a man for a very long time. I had serious mental health issues and when we broke up I decided to create something that I believed in that reflected. my values.

“I started an Etsy store in 2017, but after a few months a lot of my products were repeatedly flagged. Over the years this continued until I got one last warning in 2019.

“Social media posts by trans activists sending me abuse have become the norm – but over time they have become more serious. It started to get pretty scary and I had to contact the police.

“Tired of constantly having to justify myself, I decided to create my own website and it is the best thing I have ever done. I love it!’

The single mother-of-one, who is also the co-founder of lesbian feminist activist group Get The L Out, rose to prominence when JK Rowling bought a t-shirt with the slogan “This Witch Doesn’t Burn” under a pseudonym. Last year.

The author, 56, was charged with transphobia after mocking an article online in June 2020 that used the words “people who are menstruating” instead of “women.”

Angela says, “I was lucky to always have consistent sales, but they exploded when JK Rowling posted a tweet wearing one of my t-shirts. I couldn’t believe it!

“I support her and I’m a huge fan – that was really the boost I needed. I was so grateful.

“However, this massively increased the abuse and on one occasion I received a bomb threat against my studio, followed by threats of rape and death among their masses.

“Three different suppliers refused to work with me and one of them claimed that my products incite hatred. I’ve also had people pretending to place orders and texting me trying to find my home address – it’s crazy.

“Someone wrote to me on Facebook, ‘Trans women are more of a woman than you are. Looks like you burn pretty well to me. “

“My activism and my products seem to highlight the conflict of interest between women’s rights and trans rights activists. It’s confusing to me that I’m a woman and have my right to free speech taken away because I want to express critical views on gender.

“My opinions don’t hurt anyone. We live in a democracy. Yet, along with trans rights activists, they seek to overrule you and make you feel like you are nothing.

Angela said her activism and feminist products appeared to highlight the “conflict of interest between women’s rights and trans rights activists.”

“The more we are harassed, the more we will stand up and fight. Women who criticize gender ideology are regularly accused of being on the “wrong side of history”, but enough is enough. A voice must be heard for the lesbian community.

Angela explained how the transgender lobby group Stonewall, which is paid millions of pounds to advise public bodies – including government departments, police forces and universities – called lesbians “sex racists” for speaking out. their concerns about being pressured to have sex with transgender women.

She said: “We are now under tremendous pressure within LGBT + groups to accept trans women as sexual partners, but there has to be a voice for the other side. In my opinion, trans women are men. They don’t have a cervix and don’t have periods. It’s simple biology. It is a fact. To say otherwise is ridiculous.

“Lesbians are women who are exclusively sexually attracted to women. Organizations like Stonewall and the LGBT community call us transphobic and hateful because we don’t conform to the ideology that we should be attracted to trans women.

“I believe no one can change their gender – you can identify as whoever you want, but that doesn’t make you that. Lesbians are targeted. I have spoken to a lot of people who have been harassed and it is not good.

“At the end of the day, we live in a democracy that prides itself on free speech. Trans activists have made their voices heard and are supported by charities like Stonewall, but what about women like me who speak up for the other side?

“You can’t just shut us up. We are entitled to our opinion and I will ensure that mine is heard every day.
