A judge has backed Madrid’s decision to force a bright orange bus emblazoned with an anti-transgender message off its roads.
Jose Juan Escalonilla said the bus could not move until the slogans, including “if you are born a man, you are a man”, were removed.
The bus belongs to Catholic group, Hazte Oir, which had planned to take it on a nationwide tour of Spanish cities.
The public prosecutor is investigating whether it is a possible hate crime.
The bus is believed to be a response to posters put up in northern Spain by a transgender rights group, which read: “There are girls with penises and boys with vulvas. It’s as simple as that.”
Just a warning, there’s a screencapped tweet of the poster in question which features naked cartoon children in the article.
