Spain: Madrid Bans Catholic Group’s Anti-Trans Bus

An anti-transgender bus has been forced out of Madrid after activists, trade unionists and city council members rallied together against its message of intolerance.

The bright orange vehicle was first seen in the capital city Monday when a group of concerned citizens noticed an offensive slogan on its side: “Boys have penises, girls have vulvas. Do not be fooled. If you are born a man, you are a man. If you are a woman, you will continue to be one.”

Commissioned by Catholic group Hazte Oir (Make Yourself Heard), the bus was scheduled to go on a nationwide tour of the country’s major cities.

It’s believed that the tour was launched in response to posters put up in northern Spain promoting inclusion and acceptance of trans youth, which read: “There are girls with penises and boys with vulvas. It’s as simple as that.” Read more via NewNowNext
