The Catholic group responsible for spreading its anti-transgender message around Spain on the side of a bright orange bus is now heading to the United States, according to New Now Next. 

Hazte Oir—which translates to ‘make yourself heard’—uses the slogan ‘“Boys have penises, girls have vulvas. Do not be fooled. If you are born a man, you are a man. If you are a woman, you will continue to be one.”

Madrid banned the bus from driving around the city—and outside schools—saying that the message was “contrary to the dignity and rights of transgender children”.

A conservative citizen group created the advertising in response to a trans awareness campaign.

The ban prompted other cities in Spain to condemn the group with the Mayor of Barcelona tweeting: “In Barcelona there is no place for LGBT-phobic buses. We want our children to grow in freedom and without hatred.”

Chelsea Clinton also tweeted earlier this month, “Please don't bring these buses to the U.S. (or anywhere).”

However, Hazte Oir has remained undeterred and plans to take its hateful message to the United States next week.

Citizen Go—a Madrid based organisation associated with Hazte Oir—tweeted back to the former first daughter saying “Don't worry, @ChelseaClinton, we'll be there soon,” and tagged President Trump.
