People are laughing at Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) for implying that he believes there is only one gender.
In an email to supporters, Hawley’s campaign wrote that “Blue states are teaching kids transgender propaganda in schools when they’re as young as first graders” and asked for help to keep “socialist lies OUT of the classroom.”
The email asks the reader to take a stance and click either “YES – Keep transgender propaganda OUT” or “No – Teach young children there is more than one gender.”

While it was probably a typo and not Hawley calling to overturn the gender binary and replace it with a new system where everyone is the same gender, people had fun mocking Hawley’s failed attempt at scaremongering his supporters.
Welp, there’s men, and then there are diluted men that were created by the Lord from one of Adam’s body parts, and so – because they’re pretty and they can give birth – we keep them around, and call them “women”. Guess that’s one and a half?!

It tracks because he doesn’t think women are people.

That’s a hell of a way to come out as non-binary
