Republican Politician Likes Transgender Porn; Hates Transgender Rights

Trans rights are human rights. However, Alabama State Senator Tom Whatley appears to disagree. He’s a Republican, and he votes for legislation that erodes the rights of transgender constituents. However, apparently he does enjoy transgender porn, and got himself caught clicking ‘like’ on Twitter posts that exposed him.

Senator Tom Whatley supported legislation in his state earlier this month that would criminalize providing gender-affirming medical care to young trans people. Whatley actually offered an amendment to the bill to permit counseling to continue for transgender youth, but blocking hormone therapy and puberty blockers, as well as the mythical underage surgery that the right-wing falsely claims is being done on minors. According to the Associated Press, his amendment failed, with bill sponsor Shay Shelnutt (R) saying outright that he did not want any kind of affirming therapy available to minors: “We don’t want them affirming that.”

Even without the exception for counseling, Whatley supported the bill, and it passed the Alabama Senate 23-4.

So, Whatley showed his complete lack of support for trans rights, but then LGBTQ Nation noticed something on his Twitter feed. He had hit ‘like’ on a tweet from a porn account — “an explicit tweet by the account “Bambi Hardcore TG 18+,” who describes themself as an “enbi trans girl faerie princess.”

LGBTQ Nation reached out to the Senator for comment and he responded by unliking the tweet, and sending no reply to the publication.

Whatley may not have known his Twitter likes are visible in his feed. He has at this time not responded publicly.
