Friday, AOC responded to a tweet from Mondaire Jones.

I’m hearing @RogerMarshallMD has offered an amendment to the COVID relief bill to ban trans kids from playing sports.
Let me make sure I understand Senate rules here: Americans don’t deserve a $15 min wage, but it’s cool to attack and exclude trans kids in sports?
Senator Marshall had an amendment to the COVID-19 bill that would “prohibit the Secretary of Education from providing funds to institutions that allow for the participation of transgender athletes in female sports.”
Trans kids are awesome, incredible, beautiful, and wonderful. Bigotry is not. Republicans need to stop obsessing over other people’s gender identity bc frankly it’s very weird and they’re doing a lot of harm to children who are just trying to be themselves.
