Conservatives are already making hay out of this election, using the word transgender to attack Cawthorn for her comments. But many gender law scholars, philosophers, and scientists say there is no such thing as transgender, which is why gender is not a definite thing.
Gender is also a hot topic on the right, with anti-transgender bills being proposed in state legislatures across the country. One Texas bill would even classify gender affirming care for transgender children as child abuse.
A recent article published by Politico cites photos of Cawthorn partying in racy attire. While Politico was unable to independently verify the photos, a former campaign staffer did.
A second source also verified the photos. She appeared in a wheelchair in one of the photos. Whether Cawthorn is transgender is another question. Nevertheless, she has a history of making controversial comments.
Republican politicians are also baffled. Cawthorn’s latest scandal ignited a firestorm of controversy. Her comments on Trump’s “election fraud” allegations sparked a national debate about the issue.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said he lost confidence in Cawthorn during their meeting last week and threatened him with consequences if he lied about it. Other current and former GOP lawmakers have called for Cawthorn to apologize for her actions.
