The friend says to the man: ‘Oh, you’re raising a little fascist’.

Miss Kavanaugh then joins in and says to the unidentified person: ‘F****** fascist… you think that’s a good idea, do you raise a kid who believes in this shit […] you are disgusting.’ At one point she comes within inches of the baby, who remains calm.

Miss Kavanaugh – a graduate of the University of Southampton who has worked as a journalist in publications including NME and The Independent – has since issued an apology, barring herself from saying sorry.

She tweeted: ‘On Saturday, I disappointed the trans community with my behavior. My desire to protect my trans friends has led me to act in a way that I shouldn’t have. I am ashamed of my actions and I am sorry.

‘It has been a difficult learning experience for me and should be a lesson for all of us. My shouting and method was wrong and now it is being used against the trans community which we all want to support. I was wrong and it will not happen again.

As social media users called for his sacking, Brighton broadcaster Simon Fanshawe – Stonewall’s former C-founder – wrote an open letter to Mr Russell-Moyle, asking him to reassure him that he was dealing with the matter.

He wrote: ‘It would be reassuring to know that you are dealing with this in an appropriate case and will go on record saying that you do not agree that your constituents who hold ‘gender critical’ views are not . Fascists’ and that, as their MP, you will listen with an open mind to their concerns and doubts about self-ID.’

She was apparently protesting against supporters of the Standing for Women organisation, which held a rally in Brighton Park on Sunday.

The group ‘Reclaim Pride Brighton’ described the Standing for Women event as part of a ‘transphobic hate tour’ and claimed that ‘fascists’ were attempting to spread hatred for trans people.

Protesters disrupted speeches by Standing for Women founder Kelly-Jay Keane and other speakers.

Keane has often attracted the ire of pro-trans activists with her views on gender rights.

The women’s rights campaigner told TODAY: ‘Screaming fascist in front of a child is a particularly visible sign of how full of madness this movement is. As far as I am concerned, transgender ideology is a quasi-religious creed and it is very dangerous.

‘It seeks to use fear and intimidation to quell resentment. I have been interviewed twice by the police and arrested once.

Responding to Miss Kavanaugh’s apology, he said: ‘This young woman was absolutely disgusting in her behavior and still does not understand what she has done wrong. She hasn’t apologized to the father, she just apologized for embarrassing her trans partners.’

Keane’s talk was interrupted by protesters at Reclaim Pride Brighton, who vowed to bring ‘flags and noisemakers’.

This sparked clashes between pro-trans and women’s rights supporters, with photographs showing police dragging two men from the scene.

A line of police officers had to separate rival groups, many of whom were wearing black masks.

Police made two arrests during clashes between rival groups after smoke bombs were dropped. Hundreds attended the program.

Harry Potter author JK Rowling, who has faced death threats from trans passion, said of the incident: ‘I see the Bee Kind brigade once again hiding behind their black masks, smoke Throwing bombs, shouting ‘scum’ at women. Sexually-based rights and howling abuses on homosexuals.’

The 57-year-old Harry Potter author mocked an online article in June 2020 that used the words ‘menstruating people’ instead of ‘women’.

She has been targeted by trolls after making critical comments about the transgender lobby – including protesters outside her home last year after her address was posted online.

Meanwhile, Keane told MailOnline earlier this month that his events were marred by multiple threats and warnings.

She spoke after Sussex Constabulary officials were alerted to a number of dangerous messages against her.

They included several branding Keane – also known as Posey Parker – a TERF and urging people to ‘fight her in any way you see fit’.

She told MailOnline: ‘I’ve been called a Nazi for saying that I don’t think women have genders. Once you can portray someone as the most heinous person in society – a Nazi – I guess anything goes.

‘I’ve received a lot of threats over the years, telling me how they hope my kids get cancer.

‘Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for trans activists to make threats about women wanting to talk about our rights – JK Rowling is a prime example.

‘We are subject to a wide range of dangerous messages.

‘I think the whole social media thing impersonates people as well. We have been dehumanized by the word TERF. There are some pretty troubled people within that group, I guess.

‘This is a very effective campaign we must believe that men who want to call themselves women are the most vulnerable group in the society.

‘When I was a little younger I could go to Tesco with my kids and have some guy tell me what they thought of my looks. We as women have sadly become used to these routine violations. I think the whole issue of identity politics is a poison.
