Did you know that there’s really only one gender and that anything contradictory to that is “transgender propaganda”?
That’s what Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) is claiming in a fundraising email he sent out.
According to HuffPost:
The conservative lawmaker and running enthusiast recently sent a fundraising email that suggested teaching children about more than one gender was “transgender propaganda.” Any more than that goes “against nature, science and common sense.”
It probably won’t surprise you to learn that this isn’t the first time Hawley has made incredibly bigoted and disgusting remarks about members of the LGBTQ community.
During a Senate hearing in July, Hawley browbeat a law professor.
A UC Berkeley law professor told Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley that his line of questioning was “transphobic” during a Senate hearing related to abortion rights Tuesday.
The tense exchange began when Hawley, 42, asked Khiara Bridges, an expert in race and reproductive rights, for clarification regarding a comment she made about “people with the capacity for pregnancy.”
The Missouri Republican has also whined that masculinity is under attack in the United States:
In a keynote speech at the National Conservatism Conference last month, Hawley accused the political left of seeking to redefine traditional masculinity as toxic, and called for a “revival of strong and healthy manhood in America.”
“This is an effort that the left has been at for years now and they have had alarming success,” he said. “American men are working less, they are getting married in fewer numbers, they’re fathering fewer children, they’re suffering more anxiety and depression, they’re engaging in more substance abuse.”
For his “one gender” ignorance, Hawley was ripped all over social media.
