We mentioned in the news how the wives of some Montana legislators occupied a bench outside the state House of Representatives, a bench which state Representative Zooey Zephyr had been using to conduct business, since she is not allowed in the chamber. The Advocate compared the photo of state Representative Zephyr being forced to stand while conducting her business to photos of Black people being unable to sit at lunch counters in the civil rights era. In more modern times, this photo illustrates the problem with bathroom laws that allow transgender people to use a limited number of single-user restrooms–they can be occupied by others. For not realizing how these actions can illustrate the problems with the positions that they espouse, these women get a Twit Award.

Montana state Representative Kerri Seekins-Crowe said that she would rather her daughter commit suicide than change genders. She says that her daughter has been suicidal for three years, which would seem to give her some experience with a suicidal child. However, her comments, which were made in March and are being brought back into focus, are indeed callous and show a lack of concern for families caught in this situation. She gets a Twit Award. This story comes from The Advocate.

Elon Musk tweeted, “I regard cisgender as a slur,” and Lauren Boebert tweeted that she agrees. Said Boebert, “I’m a woman. I don’t need a qualifier.” The reason that they feel that the term is a slur is because they have acted in a way that makes it feel bad to be identified as cisgender. It is telling that neither Elon Musk nor Lauren Boebert explained why they feel that being called cisgender is a slur. For failing to see their own bad behavior when it is pointed out, and for blaming others for making them feel bad about what they are doing, Elon Musk and Lauren Boebert get a Twit Award to share. LGBTQ Nation has this story.
