Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, a rather controversial political figure who has never been shy about her less than favorable opinions of the LGBT community, appeared at a rally outside the Capitol building that featured a small set of anti-transgender activists. Still, in spite of Greene’s ability to be recognized nationwide, the rally seemed to have brought in a very small number of individuals, drawing in a crowd of roughly a dozen people.
The higher-profile individuals on site were figures such as Chloe Cole, an activist who has made a name for herself on and offline, often being used as a popular example for anti-trans positions after she de-transitioned and began to speak out against left-wing stances on gender-affirming care. Tiffany Justice, an affiliate of Moms for Liberty, a group that has been very vocal about its opposition to gender education, critical race theory, and mask mandates for public schools, was also there alongside Greene and Cole.
Those in attendance at the rally brandished signs with notably anti-LGBT slogans such as “There are TWO gender: MALE & FEMALE ‘Trust The Science!’” and “Gender ideology does not belong in schools.” Other signs included “Children are never born in the wrong body” and contrived definitions of ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ that insisted the meaning of being a parent on either side was to be biologically female and male respectively and to “protect” their children from “gender ideology.”
Cole took to Twitter to share a picture of the small gathering, captioning the pictures with: “Gender ideology doesn’t stand a chance today.”
She went on to write that the group had come together to “take a stand against gender mutilation.”
Cole finished the caption off by writing: “We will end this together.”
The Heritage Foundation also took to Twitter to promote the rally, writing that those in attendance had gathered to call out public policies that “push for minors to have access to puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and sex-reassignment surgeries.”
A spokesperson for Greene has since spoken out in the wake of the gatherings lackluster performance, insisting that the event was not a “rally” and was instead a “spontaneous gathering of men and women fighting to end the horror of genital mutilation on children.”
The spokesperson for the Congresswoman also added that news outlets implying it was a rally were aiding in the spread of “fake news.”
Greene has a history of expressing anti-LGBT viewpoints, especially in regard to the topic of transgender individuals and transition, be it medical or social. She has been vocal about feeling “threatened” by the presence of transgender women in women’s spaces. Back in March, she tweeted that she, as a woman, felt “threatened” because “biological men are aggressively replacing women.”
The tweet she was responding to in the exchange, one made by conservative activist Charlie Kirk, has since been removed from Twitter on the basis of a violation of terms and conditions.
