“weaker sex”

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s definition of “woman” winds clock back 100 years

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is known for her opposition to trans rights. She’s previously erected a prominent sign outside her office in Congress stating there are only two genders, and consistently misgenders prominent trans individuals, such as Dr. Rachel Levine.

She has taken several opportunities to blast the participation of trans women in women’s sports.

On the weekend, she was at it again. Addressing the Georgia Republican Assembly on Saturday, Greene gave her own definition of what it means to be a woman.

Greene was responding to the hearing for prospective SCOTUS justice Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson last month. During the hearing, Jackson was asked by Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee) to define what a woman is. Jackson declined to answer, saying she was “not a biologist.”

“She said she’s not a biologist,” said Greene. “I’m going to tell you right now what is a woman. This is an easy answer. We are a creation of God,” she says to several cries of “yes” from the crowd.

“We came from Adam’s rib … We are the weaker sex, but we are our partner’s, our husband’s wife.”

Several members of the audience clapped.

Greene’s assertion that women are the weaker sex has not gone down well with the Twitterverse.

When not defining what it means to be a woman, Greene spent yesterday congratulating Hungary’s far-right, anti-LGBTQ President Viktor Orban for his re-election and saluting his anti-LGBTQ stance.

“He’s leading Hungary the right way and we need this in America,” she tweeted. “America should also ban sexually explicit media in sex-ed and all gender change information for minors under 18 intentionally confusing children.”
