- A trans Montana lawmaker, who lashed out at colleagues in favor of a ban on puberty blockers, hysterectomies and other medical or surgical treatments for children with gender dysphoria by hoping the next time “you bow your heads in prayer, you see blood on your hands,” is now complaining of being misgendered by Republicans calling for the official’s censure.
- In a statement Wednesday, the Montana Freedom Caucus demanded transgender Democratic Rep. Zooey Zephyr of Missoula’s House District 100 be censured by the House “for attempting to shame the Montana legislative body and using inappropriate and uncalled-for language during a floor debate over amendments concerning Senate Bill 99 – to ban sex changes of minor children.” The statement described Zephyr using he/him pronouns.
- The bill already passed Montana’s House and Senate, and a debate occurred over amendments requested by Gov. Greg Gianforte, a Republican.
