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.

This evil idiot is what you get when you ban books.

It is genuinely baffling to me that, after 246 years in this country, educators are suddenly, without exception, and with absolutely no discernible motivation, trying to “deceive (boys) to become women.”
Look in your mirror, Marje.
The “monsters in these evil days” are you. https://t.co/39NnyNasju

My husband was a teacher as are many of my friends.NONE of them do that but encourage their students to be accepting of ALL of their fellow students.

I get it.
Your attacks on teachers are deeply personal.
You hold them responsible for not giving you the education you should’ve had, which turned you into the monster you are today.

You know what’s strange, I raised 4 men and not one teacher along the way tried to turn them into women🤷♀️Although more women is exactly what this world needs. Why do you hate women so much @RepMTG

provide evidence that a single 'teacher' has 'talked' a boy into 'becoming a woman' . Also, are you not concerned that they are talking girls into becoming a man? Or is it that you are just against drag queens reading to children. Really, your bigotry is beyond belief.

I’m a middle school teacher.
I only want your sons to wear deodorant and shower more than once a week. With soap. Thanks.

Parents raise your children to be open minded, accepting of others, loving and compassionate. Teach them not to be fearmongering bigots.

Parents raise your boys to be men who respect women, and know when someone’s trying to stir the pot for political gain.

Parents, raise your children to be curious, accepting, kind people who believe in science and facts.
The exact opposite of Marge Greene

You obsess over this so much. How about we thank teachers for their hours invested in our children. How about we encourage our children to be loving, compassionate and tolerant. How about we accept our children however they identify.
