Law professor Khiara Bridges took Josh Hawley to school at a senate hearing yesterday, and we don’t think he’ll be graduating any time soon.In Tuesday’s hearing on “Post-Roe America”, Hawley mocked the professor for referring to those affected by the Dobbs decision as “people with a capacity for pregnancy”, asking, “Would that be women?”Bridges succinctly explained that there are women who can’t get pregnant, as well as trans men and nonbinary people who can.“We can recognize that this impacts women while also recognizing that it impacts other groups,” Bridges clearly explained. “Those things are not mutually exclusive, Senator Hawley.”Somehow, that’s just too much information for the junior senator to process.After a tense exchange where Hawley tried to imply Bridges believes Roe is not a women’s issue, she plainly said the quiet part out loud.“I want to recognize that your line of questioning is transphobic, and it opens up trans people to violence by not recognizing them.”Related: Josh Hawley wants to force women to have babies and make adoption easier… just not for gay peopleThe senator responded incredulously, as if he couldn’t fathom how denying trans folks’ existences could possibly be harmful to them.Indeed, Hawley and his state’s legislature don’t seem to want to recognize trans people if they can help it.
