Marjorie Taylor Greene Revives Anti-Trans Bathroom Predator Myth

The congresswoman went on an anti-trans rant at a right-wing event, where she also condemned the display of the Pride flag.

U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene revived the bathroom predator myth in a hateful anti-transgender rant over the weekend at a right-wing event.

Greene, a far-right Republican from Georgia, said that trans women are really men pretending to be women to gain access to women’s spaces and commit sexual assault — even though there has been no documented case of an assault by someone posing as trans.

They are “men, who are really a bunch of perverts, in your locker room and your bathroom because listen, they want to have sex with you – that’s why they’re in there. That’s real,” Greene told the audience at the Turning Point USA Young Women’s Leadership Summit. Video of her remarks was posted by The Independent.

“They’re not saying, ‘Oh, I identify as a woman, and I’m only attracted to men.’ That is a lie,” Greene continued. “These are sexual predators.” She urged women to “fight hard” against “sexual predators invading your space.” She likened this “fight” to women’s effort to win the right to vote.

She also touted her Protect Children’s Innocence Act, which would make it a felony to provide gender-affirming care to trans minors, and denounced the conference’s venue, the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, for flying a Pride flag.

“I’m standing in the Gaylord, and they might kick me out and never want me to come back — shame on them,” Greene said, according to Newsweek. “Shame on them for hanging that flag out there. Shame on them. Because it shouldn’t be about what people do sexually that causes us to hang a flag somewhere.”

Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA, likewise condemned the display of the Pride flag and said he asked for it to be taken down, but the venue’s management refused. “This hotel better do something or we’re going to find another hotel, because I’m not going to come back,” he said at the conference.

He called the flag “an insult to all of us, to our traditions and our customs” and said it’s part of a “social contagion that is spreading [across] the country at a rapid pace that disguises itself as ‘transgenderism,’” Newsweek reports.

Later, Greene appeared on The Charlie Kirk Show, where both denounced the flying of the Progress Pride flag at the White House, falsely claiming it was displayed more prominently than the U.S. flag. Greene said the flag has become “a symbol of aggression” and “sexualizing of children, grooming children to believe a complete lie, that they can change their gender” and that “the way they have sex … should identify them as a person.” This is “perverted,” “abhorrent,” and “evil,” she said.

The gay movement has been “hijacked” by a “sexual agenda” and isn’t about equal rights anymore, she added.
