A catholic bus inscribed with an anti-transgender message has been banned and taken off the roads in Spain, after activists, Trade unions and the Madrid City council kicked against it.
The slogan on the orange coloured bus which was seen on Monday, read:
'Boy have penises, girls have vulvas. Do not be fooled.'
While another message on the side read:
'If you are born a man, you are a man. If you are a woman, you will continue to be one."
'Hazte Oir' is the Catholic group behind it and it had planned to take it on a nationwide tour in Spain. But the Madrid council who suspected hatred and banned the anti-transgender bus.
Branding the bus tour, the Equality spokeswoman for the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party, Angeles Alvarez, says it is "a hate campaign based on intolerance".
BBC reports that the bus was probably a response to posters put up by a transgender rights group, which read:
'There are girls with penises and boys with vulvas. It's as simple as that.'
Meanwhile, the president of Hazte Oir, Ignacio Arsuaga claimed the slogan on the bus states only 'a fact of biology that is studied in schools'.
