Amazon has apparently removed the “Trans Rights…Or Else” t-shirt that was briefly made available on their site.
The news comes amid anger and hostility from the trans community after it was revealed that the gunman who killed three 9-year-old children and three staff members at The Covenant School in Nashville was a trans person.
The “Trans Rights…Or Else” shirt displays a series of assault rifles centered in the midst of the words, seeming to suggest that anyone who attempts to get in the way of trans people are at risk of being shot. This comes shortly after Tennessee Republicans have voted to ban drag shows in certain areas and prohibited sex changes for those under the age of 18.
Newsweek recently condemned Tennessee lawmakers for passing the bill without addressing a possible ban on assault rifles, seeming to conflate the two separate issues. Newsweek and other critics of Republican lawmakers are almost exclusively focused on assault rifles in the recent school shooting, appearing to evade engaging with the individual who committed the atrocity.
However, if the critics want to ban assault weapons, then they should be applying their criticism unilaterally, but they have not. These same critics have come up short in addressing the violence perpetrated by trans activists amid Tennessee’s decision to ban drag shows.
On Twitter, users appeared to threaten Tennessee lawmakers, with one user rhetorically posting: "let me know where I can get my hands on ricin then we’re in business." Ricin is a highly potent toxin naturally found in castor beans.
The Elm Fork John Brown Gun Club also took to Twitter, posting photos of a line of black-clad activists, armed with assault rifles. And the assault-rifle critics were suspiciously silent.
Fox News reported that the same group went on to suggest that they were there, fully armed, in an effort to "[promote] and [assist] marginalized communities in organizing community defense against white supremacists [and] fascism," according to its Instagram.
It was previously reported that a Trans Day of Vengeance is set for April 1 at the Supreme Court in Washington, DC. The report mentions that members of the trans community have apparently partnered with Antifa in order to bring this event about. The purpose of the event is to “stop trans genocide,” according to the organizers.
It is currently unclear what prompted Amazon to take down the shirt.
