‘Transgender’ Protesters Storm Oklahoma Capitol

A large group of so-called “transgender” activists stormed the Oklahoma Capitol on Monday, protesting against the state’s proposed legislation that would prohibit dangerous gender reassignment surgeries for minors.

Roughly 150 activists stormed into the interior rotunda of Oklahoma’s state Capitol while state legislators convened for their first joint session of 2023, according to the Daily Mail.

The protesters chanted “Trans lives matter” and “This is our house” while advocating against proposed Senate Bills 129 and 252, which would bar adolescents from undergoing so-called “gender transition procedures.”

Oklahoma, along with ten other states, has prioritized passing legislation this term to protect minors from dangerous surgeries and hormone treatments being advocated for by the radical left.

Utah Gov. Spencer Cox (R) was the first governor this year to take action on the issue, signing legislation into law to protect minors from these dangerous procedures.

West Virginia’s House Judiciary Committee also recently followed this path, advancing legislation banning puberty blockers and gender reassignment surgeries for minors. Around 80 left-wing protesters appeared at the hearing to protest.

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) — who signed a bill into law last March to prohibit biological men from competing in women’s sports — has expressed his support for the new bills fighting against the left’s radical gender ideology.

“We must protect our most vulnerable—our children,” Stitt said in his State of the State address during Monday’s session. “After all, minors can’t vote, can’t purchase alcohol, can’t purchase cigarettes. We shouldn’t allow a minor to get a permanent gender-altering surgery in Oklahoma.”

SB129 would prohibit gender transition procedures for individuals under the age of 26, while SB252 caps the law at 18 and under.

“As governor, I will never shy away from calling out right from wrong,” the Oklahoma governor said Monday. “I will not be intimidated by partisan interest groups or make decisions based on groupthink.”

Critics called out the hypocritical lack of response on the activists storming the Oklahoma Capitol, with Christian rapper Bryson Gray questioning why they weren’t labeled insurrectionists or terrorists in the same way that the peaceful demonstrators from the January 6 Capitol protests were.

“‘Transgender’ protesters stormed the Oklahoma capitol building. Are they insurrectionists and terrorists? Or are those terms only applicable to conservatives?” Gray asked.

Matt Clark, senior editor at Patriot One News, made similar comments calling out the hypocrisy.

“Transgender protestors STORM the Oklahoma Capitol chanting ‘This Is Our House’. When do the insurrection charges begin? Certainly looks like one to me!” he wrote, sharing a video of the incident.
