Another day and another transphobic tweet from Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). Just a day after slamming Caitlyn Jenner as a “Man in a dress”, Greene yesterday took aim at two trans people with a less public profile.

Ahanu and Petrona, a trans couple in Washington DC, recently featured on the Emmy-nominated Facebook Watch show Nine Months with Courtney Cox. The heartwarming and inspiring documentary series followed 13 prospective parents on their pregnancy journeys.
One segment showed Ahanu and Petrona with their child, as Petrona attempts to breastfeed the child. It was shared by a Twitter user who was disgusted at the notion of two trans parents, and in particular, a trans person attempting to breastfeed.
Greene shared their disgust, re-tweeting the video and saying: “This is CHILD ABUSE!!!!! This baby is in danger! Remove this child immediately. Caring for and raising children should have nothing, absolutely NOTHING, to do with fulfilling this man’s unnatural fantasies. Men can NOT give birth or breast feed. They are mentally unstable.”
This is CHILD ABUSE!!!!!
This baby is in danger!
Remove this child immediately.
Caring for and raising children should have nothing, absolutely NOTHING, to do with fulfilling this man’s unnatural fantasies.
Men can NOT give birth or breast feed.
They are mentally unstable. https://t.co/1153hNQeyd

In fact, individuals assigned male at birth who later transition have been capable of breastfeeding, or chestfeeding, infants. It does require the use of hormones to induce lactation and is not easy, as Petrona discovered upon their first attempts.
Many of those to respond to Greene criticized her hysterical reaction.
My guess is that this child will grow up to respect his or her parents. They may not be your/mine/or anyone else’s cup of tea, but they are honest.
That is much more than I can say for you.

So, if you can not breast feed naturally, the baby should not breastfeed and should be deemed child abuse?

While their relationship is unusual, they do seem to have a lot more love in them than you seem to have.
There’s a lot of hate in the world, MTG. Can’t you just celebrate some love in its different forms?
Jesus would bless them.

For anyone interested in watching the whole episode, in which Petrona dramatically helps Ahanu to give birth to their child when the midwife fails to show up on time, you can view it below.
The episode received overwhelmingly positive comments on Facebook when it first aired, with many singling out Petrona and Ahanu.
“I am so in love with Ahanu and Petronas love 😍 their baby is so lucky to have amazing parents who will show them what love should look like!” commented one viewer.
“That birth! Hats off to Ahanu & Petrona. From the midwife not being there to the baby not crying right away (which was so emotional) & the way they handled themselves – especially Ahanu was amazing. Their support of each other is beautiful,” said another.
I thought repugnants believed in staying out of people’s business.
Yeah similar to how christians never judge people because that is up to g*d. What a disgusting and utter c*nt. UGH
She’d rather the baby be raised by pedophiles like the Duggars as long as they’re “Good Christians”.
Hopefully she gets her ass kicked out in the mid terms. Her only purpose is being a professional troll. She can’t serve on any committees and sure as hell hasn’t helped anyone in her district.
EXACTLY, why would they return her to congress when she cant DO anything to help them back in the hollow
(scratches head) The side effects of some medications is lactation. Including amongst those assigned male at birth. So yes, even men could breastfeed, if necessary or desired.
They’re sometimes prescribed to women who have trouble with milk production. As I presume is happening here. So I fail to see the problem?
MTG needs to see “Meet the Fockers” where Robert DeNiro demonstrates how to do it!
Marjorie Taylor Greene should have her children taken away because of her assholery!
You do have to admit that a man that transitioned into a woman should not expect that he would be capable of breast feeding a baby just because he took hormones and cut off his penis. Sorry to be so blunt but so many in here believe that a trans woman is the same as a biologically born woman. A trans woman may EMOTIONALLY be just as much of a woman but the BIOLOGY says otherwise.
That is OK, my mother gave me milk from a bottle because I did not like the taste of the milk from her breasts.
Don’t create a strawman, #1 Don’t confuse gender with biological sex. #2 Transwomen are assigned as male at birth, but aren’t men and were never men( they are born with transgender/female brains). #3 transwomen can breast feed if their prolactin levels are high enough. #4 transwomen aren’t “men” who have their dick cut off. #5 no transgender person believes that transwomen are the same as cis women(ie: trans, cis) these terms mean that they’re different. I thought I’d clear somethings up because your generalizations were so off.
Your agenda is to deflect the topic off the fact that a Republican, due to bigotry, wants to rip a child away from a loving family.
It is so pathetic that nobody is doing anything to get rid of the ugly cow. She should worry about her own family that keep her ugly face out of others
She is being challenged for her seat by Holly McCormack.
The GQP loves this bigotry. They love destruction and hatred. Look at Jan 6th
Talk about putting the c*nt in Republic*nts.
Follow to her twitter and report this post… twitter does protect trans people against harassment- and this is clearly harassment.
What we should be concerned about is a growing trend towards infertility. I can almost see MTG fulfilling the role of Aunt Lydia in the type of society she’s promoting.
The question popped in my head. Does MTG have children and/or was ever married? It turns out affirmative on both counts. Wow!! That totally slipped under my radar. Heaven help her children!!!
Fname Optional Lname
I guess her anger and aggression towards trans folk stems from the fact that she is constantly reminded by others how “manly” she appears. She surrounds herself with people who can only follow the “pink is for girls and blue is for boys” golden rule so being reminded all her life that she has some characteristics that stray from that “norm” just eats away at her! If she would just embrace her masculine side she may be a bit happier, probably not much happier because – well it’s her – but at least happy enough that she will stop raging against teenage victims of shooting sprees.
I have to admit all this gender blurring really makes me uncomfortable and confused but these two people are obviously in love with each other and their baby so God bless.
I don’t understand how these MTJ repugs rally for smaller government and individual freedoms but want government to encroach in people’s lives for abortion, teaching kids the real US history, gay marriage and trans freedoms.
MTG is nothing but hatred incarnate.
I try to be kind, but this woman is a c*nt and a half. Shame on her!
The only person who is mentally unstable in this story is Marjorie Taylor Greene. In the opinion of this writer, she is appallingly ignorant on most issues, especially about how government operates day to day. She is completely incompetent and should be expelled from Congress. We cannot have lunatics like her representing anyone!
