Marjorie Taylor Greene says trans Americans 'have the same rights' while pushing gender-affirming care ban
United States Representative and House Speaker Pro Tempore Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) declared on her Battleground podcast this week that transgender Americans enjoy full equality under the law. Greene also ordered private companies — the free market — to refrain from exercising their rights if they have viewpoints with which conservatives disagree.
"Let me remind everyone. As a member of Congress, I can tell you right now people that are trans have the same rights as every single other American, and we want them to have the same rights," Greene proclaimed.
Greene introduced a bill last year call the Protect Children's Innocence Act to restrict access to life-saving gender-affirming care, which Greene and other right-wing lawmakers deem "genital mutilation."
Greene on Thursday begged Congress to hold a vote, tweeting that "we must pass my bill, the Protect Children's Innocence Act, to END the genital mutilation of kids in America." She added that "my bill would charge any person who knowingly performs 'gender-affirming' care on a minor with a Class C Felony and prohibit all taxpayer funding for this barbaric surgery."
Raw Story noted that a circumcision ban is not included in Greene's legislation.
Nonetheless, Greene continued her lecture.
Transgender individuals "have the same freedom of speech. They have the same Second Amendment. They have the same ability to vote. They have the same ability to get an education. They can buy a house. They can get a job. They can identify however they please," Green pontificated. "But when it turns into a political agenda and it's run through major corporations, it's run through businesses and it's shoved in your large percentage of your customer base that doesn't agree and doesn't wanna participate, then you are not acting like a business. You are acting like a political organization, and that needs to stop."
