"Thought we'd put up our Transgender flag so she can look at it every time she opens her door".

"I think it's terrible what we're doing to this generation of children with these mask mandates and these shutdowns", Greene told Fox News in November past year.

"The Democrats" so-called "Equality' Act is an attack on God's creation", Greene said on Twitter, citing her House speech.

"This hate is exactly why the #EqualityAct is necessary and what we must protect [Newman's] daughter and all our LGBTQ+ loved ones against", he said in a tweet.

It'll pass the House again this year no matter how many lies Republicans spread about it - let's hope Senate moderates don't ruin it. But many Republicans - from moderates like Sen. They are also opposed to the fact that the bill trumps the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

The bill would include "gender identity" and "sexual orientation" as classes protected under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and would also attempt to remove "religious freedom" as a "license to discriminate" people on the basis of their gender identity or sexual orientation. Critics have panned those arguments as transphobic, with roots in a fringe political movement that has made some radical feminists and conservatives unlikely allies on the issue.

'Our neighbor, [Marjorie Taylor Greene], tried to block the Equality Act because she believes prohibiting discrimination against trans Americans is 'disgusting, immoral, and evil, ' Rep. Newman tweeted.

The tweet came with a video of the congresswoman showing the proximity of her office to Greene's, then the Illinois Democrat is shown placing the flag outside her office and brushing her hands together with a smirk.

During her floor speech before asking to adjourn, she referenced her past playing sports, saying she was "blessed" she only had to compete against biological women.

Evie Newman originally inspired Illinois Democrat Newman to run for office after she spoke of being bullied at school for being transgender.

"And yet, it was still the happiest day of my life, and my daughter has found her authentic self".

Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) recently relocated her Longworth office after she said Taylor Greene and her staff berated her without wearing masks. The afternoon exchange sparked a new round of harsh blowback for the Georgia Republican.

Speaking to MSNBC on Thursday, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) explained that while Greene's cruelty is sad, she's representative of a larger Republican Party.

Newman's office is directly across from Greene's, who responded to her congressional colleague by referring to Newman's daughter as her "biological son".

"There are TWO genders MALE & FEMALE", the sign reads, before adding "Trust the science!'"

"Your sign is incorrect because it's not what the science says", Lieu tweeted Wednesday evening, quoting a Scientific American column that concludes: "The science is clear and conclusive: sex is not binary, transgender people are real". Three hours later, Facebook reposted the video. "Public servants of good faith argue policy".

Despite Republican efforts to combat the bill, it is likely that the Democrat-controlled House will pass the Equality Act. Newman will certainly be among the lawmakers voting in favor of the bill.

The duo are feuding over the controversial Equality Act, which is now being debated in the House. "The best time to pass this act was decades ago".

Newman said Greene was "welcome" to put up her "goofy" sign and she had "no interest" in engaging in a "tit-for-tat". Newman has shared that her daughter, "the strongest, bravest person I know", identifies as transgender.
