U.S. Reps. Mike Quigley (D-Illinois) and Katie Hill (D-California) introduced a resolution denouncing Secretary of Housing & Urban Development Ben Carson as transphobic and criticizing his policies as anti-LGBT, The Washington Blade reported.
Last month, at a San Francisco shelter, Carson made comments about "big, hairy men" seeking to enter women's homeless sheltersstatements many interpreted as anti-trans. However, the House resolution also cites a history of anti-LGBT policies and statements.
For example, according to the resolution, "In 2016, then-Presidential candidate Carson said, "Boys who say, 'I feel like a girl today, I want to go into the girl's lavatory'that is such a bunch of garbage. If we continue to cater to that, where will it lead?"
