Hate Group Leader Brian Brown To Bring Anti-Trans Bus To United Nations Commission On Status Of Women

Via press release from Christian Newswire:

A tour bus affirming biological sex and criticizing transgender ideology, known as the #FreeSpeechBus, will launch this week during the United Nations’ sixty-first session of the Commission on the Status of Women. The #FreeSpeechBus’s North American tour will begin with a press conference on Thursday, March 23 at 12:00pm Noon ET, outside the United Nations building on the steps of the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza.

The sponsors of the busβ€”including Ignacio Arsuaga, President of CitizenGO, and Brian Brown, President of the International Organization for the Familyβ€”will speak at the press conference. They will address the dangers posed by the promotion of “sexual orientation and gender identity” in education, legislation, and international instruments. An identical #FreeSpeechBus has been touring Spain over the past two weeks and has generated heated controversy for its message that “boys are boys and always will be,” and “girls are girls and always will be.”

Spanish municipalities have censored and immobilized the European bus, and the hacker group Anonymous even launched an attack against CitizenGO’s website in retaliation. Chelsea Clinton criticized the bus in a tweet, warning not to bring such as bus to the United States.

“The Spanish #FreeSpeechBus has become an international phenomenon because proponents of gender ideology refuse to allow dissenting voices to be heard,” said Ignacio Arsuaga, President of CitizenGO. “We are excited to launch this bold message of common sense in the United States on the occasion of the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women. We intend to firmly advocate for our ideals while respecting the dignity all individuals,” he added.

CitizenGO is a community of active citizens who work together, using online petitions and action alerts as a resource, to defend and promote life, family, and liberty. The #FreeSpeechBus will make stops in New York, New Haven, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. over the next two weeks.

Contrary to the claim above (and as you’ll see in the clip below), the hate bus was actually banned in Spain for violating municipal rules on outdoor advertising. Last week the State Department appointed C-FAM, a member of Brown’s recently formed hate group coalition, to the official US delegation to the UN conference.

    Free pee for me but not for thee.

    • SilasMarner

      Oooo, that gives me an idea. When the bus arrives in your town feel free to piss on it, all over it. πŸ™‚

  • T-Batwoman

    I don’t think censoring speech is a good idea no matter what opinion is stated, unless it incites violence. Their opinion of me means squat.

    • Friday

      Dehumanization of kids (and transfolk in general) like that clearly *does* incite violence.

      • T-Batwoman

        We lost the election for a reason. The left has been trying to shut down all forms of speech often resorting to violence to do so, this is unacceptable. We have not learned a damn thing.

        • Friday

          I think there’s a line between ‘free speech’ and random hate speech intended to deceive and harass, which adds nothing to any sort of dialogue, not that the haters are interested in any.

    • NancyP

      Mocking them, though – that’s the ticket.

      • T-Batwoman

        To each their own, I can only be responsible for my own speech. There is a reason LGBT became accepted, we showed our friends and family that we are good human beings and that resonated. We have become the moral arbiters of nation trying to force others, often thru violence, to see it our way. We lost the election for a reason, it’s time for us to look in the mirror and realize how we got here and take some responsibility for the election.

        If someone mocks me for being trans it means squat, I’m not that sensitive.

  • Bad Tom

    Ooooo. The fucker is coming to Boston.
    Let’s give him a New England reception.

    1) not everyone is born into one of only two sexes, let alone genders.
    2) the US is not signatory to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

    Really classy, Bri Bri.

    “We intend to firmly advocate for our ideals while respecting the dignity all individuals,” he added.”

    I would be shocked if anyone believed that these people would actually show respect for a trans-gendered individual.

    • Bj Lincoln

      That caught my eye as well. There should be an * with the following, “except anyone who thinks they are LGB ot T or supports them.”

  • Snarkaholic

    Hmm…graphics of young children…right next to a description of their genitals = creepy AF.

  • In most cases, the statement “boys have a penis and girls have a vulva” (if I read that right) is actually a correct statement. The error that Brown, Asuaga, their organizations, and, apparently, the Trump Administration, make, is that this overly simplistic binary breaks down at the edges – biological reality does not conveniently break down to a neat sex binary – the existence and biological reality of transgender and other intersex people are inconvenient truths for those who rely on this sort of oversimplified junk science.

    • Bj Lincoln

      You look familiar. Have you done any speaking engagements in Baltimore?
      I agree with you. The “oversimplified junk science” is the only way the ignorant can understand. If it get too complicated, they get lost and confused.

      • Most of my relatively rare public speaking has been in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. I haven’t had theopportunity to speak in Baltimore, though.

    • clay

      That’s because it’s not science, at all, but Roman Catholic dogma based on the first two chapters of Genesis.

      • gary47290

        It’s actually driven more by what’s in Leviticus

        • clay

          Likely, but that’s not what they’re going to claim.

        • The worst thing is that they don’t actually “get” the two creation stories in Genesis, at least not the way some Jewish theologians have managed to understand it, with the original Adam being an “androgynous” he and she, in God’s image and likeness, only to be divided later.

          For that matter, the Hebrew version is not as complete as the Greek, where the androgynous double-human was accompanied by doble-andro and double gyne varieties, all of whom were stricken by Zeus as they tried to roll up Mt. Olympus to attack the gods – leaving each half to be in search of its other half. Those Greeks – they had enough there to be able to cover gender and sexual orientation, all rolled into one story of mythic proportions (there is a version in Plato’s Symposium).

    • Regan DuCasse

      Thank you!
      I don’t have to tell you what it’s like to talk to people like that who just can’t get their heads around how complex gender actually is. That any of us can be a bit of both, or a lot of both…it’s not something that’s so rigid in nature and never has been.
      Logic would dictate that such a reality, is a means of survival for the human race.
      Because at the extremes of enforcing gender into simple patterns that don’t exist, males and females aren’t supportive of each other.
      And the violence visited on females, or those non conforming to that narrow standard, proves that.
      Brown himself is married to a breeding machine who evidently has no other role BUT to do that.
      She’s not heard from much, if at all. And no doubt, Brown leaves her with the scut work of dealing with nine children, while he travels or goes to office to troll for more money to feed them.
      No doubt he thinks he’s doing the “man’s work”.

    • Steverino

      Junk science born of junk theology.

    • KCMC

      spanish limited here, but did not read anything in Spanish on bus with re to: manjina.

    • Robert Conner

      But…plug-and-socket is as far as their imagination can go. We’re dealing with VERY limited people here.

    • Chris Baker

      I think that bringing more intersex people into the discussion will help shed light on the fact that no, not everyone is born with either male genitalia or female genitalia. That will really blow some people’s minds.

      • Yes! Though there are a lot of different kinds of intersex development. With trans folks, brain development is an intersex component (though there are enough intersex folks who intentionally distance themselves from trans folks).

        The various androgen insensitivity syndromes – CAIS involves an “XY” person who develops as female (though usually infertile as the gonads are not ovaries), while PAIS often results in what one friend self-references as being “a mess down there.”

        Some intersex folks are not visibly “different” while others have been victimized by infant genital mutilation surgeries foisted on their parents so they could grow up “normal” in a binary sense (doctors who do this kind of surgery sometimes claim it is to avoid parents abandoning their baby at the hospital).

        The so-called “bathroom bills” and other measures can sometimes adversely impact intersex people in addition to trans folks.

  • LovesIrony

    Pretty hard to respect the dignity of individuals when you are advocating discrimination against them. and you bigots aren’t bright enough to do this.

  • romanhans

    I can’t think of anything that would protest immorality better than driving a bus with the words PENIS and VULVA on the side.

  • bkmn

    Shouldn’t that be p*n* and v*lv*?

  • mikeinftl

    Let’s hope they get a flat tire or two.

  • Tor

    I don’t understand why these hate groups care so much about individuals’ personal lives. I guess they have to have someone or something to hate, or they would not exist.

  • anne marie in philly

    hmmm, when it shows up in MY city…there are people who know how to deal wit dis shit…(just sayin’)…

    • Friday

      Well, you know, spaghetti sauce accidents happen, y’know?

      • anne marie in philly

        bwhahahahaha! at least that’s what cousin vinnie tells me…

  • Dale Snyder

    Because NOM is only about “marriage.”

    • Menergy

      Well they sure want to breed children ( within bounds of “holy” matrimony of course)

  • Robert Anthony

    Mind your own genitalia asshole. Everyone else’s is none of your business and doesn’t affect you.

  • Bj Lincoln

    It’s no wonder they were told to get off the street. With penis and vulva in big letters, someone was bound to complain. If your child is old enough to read then they are old enough to know the correct term for their body parts.

  • barrixines

    That bus never made it anywhere in Spain . I was just laughing with the other half about the idea of it in arriving in Barcelona. I said the trans working girls here would have had the wheels off and the whole fucking thing on fire in minutes. You do not mess with these women. Apparently though it had already been set alight in Madrid. With a head full of Trump and Brexit, I forget sometimes how brilliant the people can be here.

  • Jon Doh
  • Earl

    So, in their world, hermaphrodites don’t exist?

    I think they’re crazy.

    • The_Wretched

      That they ‘must’ teach boys to be boys and girls to be girls and must teach that parts = identity sort of cuts off their arguments off at the knees. We are who we are without having it taught to us.

  • Rex

    Dumbass bigots will be dumbass bigots and always will be.


    The Spanish satirical magazine El Jueves brought out their own message on a bus, warning of child abuse by Catholics.


  • Acronym Jim

    LOL, if OMM had designed the signage, it would have been spelled “p_ne” and “v_lva.”

    • boatboy_srq

      Makes you wonder what One Dozen Moms have against vowels…

  • Natty Enquirer

    Los idiotas tienen genitales para los cerebros.

  • Stephen Elliot Phillips

    Look! Its the grab em by the genitals bus!
    In honor of our grabber-in-chief

  • DesertSun59

    So, the irony is that trans kids come out anyway.

  • SFHarry

    What ever happened to them repeatedly saying that they were only about the sanctity of marriage and that it wasn’t about discrimination? I guess they changed their minds or was it never really about the sanctity of marriage.

  • They’re calling it the Free Speech Bus?

    Have they officially dropped any pretense about it being about God or science or whatever? Is “free speech” now just openly shorthand for “I want to be an asshole and you can’t stop me”? It used to be code, but this is just brazen.

    • boatboy_srq

      They’d get further with a Free Spinach Bus (which is how I read that at first).

    Hello, time to bring a few “boots” and throw the keys away.Then tell the local constabulary that they have a illegally parked bus at the UN.

    What have you unleashed on the world America?

    What are we going to have to do about it?

  • Robert Conner

    The “plug-and-socket” theory of human sexuality, the creation science equivalent of sex, back again. In related news, the Pope apologizes for the role of the Roman Catholic Church in the Rwandan genocide. It’s 2017 and the RCC is still apologizing for Catholic participation in genocide.

    Huh… orange. Just like our pResident.

  • 2patricius2

    Ah, yes. I remember his bus in St. Louis. Not many on the bus. Not many (other than protesters) to greet the bus. Not many at his rally. A total waste of money for whoever rents the bus.

  • boatboy_srq

    You have to wonder whether they set out to break local laws just so they can whinge about how they’re oppressed by everybody.

    Either that, or they think they’r So Very Special that no laws of men apply to them.

  • fuzzybits

    It was never just about marriage,he hates gay folk.

    Nice bus you have there, would be too bad if something happened to it ( like slashed tires…) Or sugar in the gas tank….
