Bus with anti-transgender message impounded in Madrid

Bus with anti-transgender message impounded in Madrid

The Christian group had planned to take the bus to Valencia, Barcelona, Zaragoza, Pamplona, San Sebastian, Bilbao, and Vitoria. If you are born a man you are a man. "If you are a woman, you will continue to be one".

The bus is believed to be a response to posters put up in northern Spain by a transgender rights group, which read: "There are girls with penises and boys with vulvas. It's as simple as that".

The prosecutor wrote that the bus may incite hate crime, be a threat to public peace, and create feelings of insecurity and fear based on sexual orientation.

The vehicle was impounded after it was spotted in Madrid on Monday.

A magistrate in the Spanish capital on Thursday ordered the bus to stay off the road until its controversial full-length advertisement is removed.

Madrid Mayor Manuela Carmena said the City Council wants the vehicle out of the city "as soon as possible".

The regional government said Tuesday it is consulting with police over whether the bus breaks anti-discrimination laws.

What would you ask a transgender woman?




Hazte Oir has previously campaigned against abortion and lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender LGBT rights.

Pablo Iglesias, the leader of the far-left Podemos party, said in a television interview: "Those from HazteOir may have penises and vaginas, but they clearly don't have a brain, nor do they have a heart".

The group told the BBC on Wednesday it was not expecting to meet so much opposition.

One Madrid city council member branded the bus "the bus of shame".

The bus is due to visit seven other Spanish cities in coming days.

He said: "We have the right to educate our children according to our thinking, why must they impose their criteria?"

Authorities in Spain have put the brakes on a bus campaigning against the promotion of transgenderism.
