Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is getting mocked online for suggesting that teachers are lying to boys to turn them into transgender women.
“Parents raise your boys to be men and protect them from teachers who try to deceive them to become women,” Greene wrote. “Guard your children from such monsters in these evil days.”
Her post doesn’t seem to be a reference to any specific story, since this isn’t something that happens in the real world. Several of her supporters responded with stories about teachers using their transgender students’ pronouns, which is not what Greene was discussing.
Greene’s critics, on the other hand, mocked her for her latest conspiracy theory.
Again let me go over the facts for those that have the mistaken idea that this is happening. Boys know their gender and their sexual orientation in their preteen middle school years clearly. Teen boys know their gender and sexual orientation, ever hear the phrase “girl crazy” and teen boys trying desperately to get a girl to have sex with them. Their hormones are on over drive. Now also remember kids are desperate to fit into the majority, and the majority are straight cis kids. Trans, gay, and lesbian are really the minority. One that is frequently the victim of bullying, malicious or vicious attacks by the bigot straight cis kids. Yes more tolerance in some schools / places were happening but it is not roses and sunshine to be a kids who is different from others. It is not fun to be the odd one out. Why do you think it is so important for schools to push a message of tolerance and acceptance, to have supportive groups like the gay / straight alliances. But in many red states that is all gone now.
