Marjorie Taylor Greene Tells Buttigieg 'Stay Out of Girls Bathrooms'

Reading now: 846

At a speech in Georgia, sitting Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene attacked U.S. Secretary of Transportation. In a rant, she told Buttigieg to stay out of girls bathrooms. "And you know what, Pete Buttigieg can take his electric vehicles and his bicycles," she said. "And he and his husband can stay out of our girls bathrooms."It's not immediately clear what Greene was referring to.

The mention seems an egregious and uninformed conflation, as if the politician — whose very status of running for reelection is under review — is conflating gay men and trans women.

The Republican party has been redoubling efforts to legislation trans folks out of existence ahead of this year's midterms. Buttigieg has never identified as a woman, nor to our knowledge, used a "girls' bathroom" or expressed a desire to. .
