Democrat Presidential candidate Joe Biden was hit with a Twitter backlash after declaring that “transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time.”
The former Vice President of the United States was trying to make political hay after presidential competitor Senator Bernie Sanders boasted about support from comedian Joe Rogan who has previously made disparaging remarks about ‘transgender’ people.
“Let’s be clear: Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time,” tweeted Biden. “There is no room for compromise when it comes to basic human rights.”

Biden’s comments came one day after hundreds of thousands marched in Washington D.C. at the annual March for Life demanding the right to life for unborn children targeted for abortion. Pro-life advocates say that the right to life is the greatest human rights issue of the day and is the foundation of all other rights. President Donald Trump stated at the event: “We are here for a very simple reason: to defend the right of every child, born and unborn, to fulfill their God-given potential.”
Former transgender James Shupe, America’s first legally “non-binary” person who has since reclaimed his ‘male birth sex, offered a short litany about the disastrous impact transgenderism has had on society, and in particular, on women and girls.
“Men in women’s bathrooms with little girls. Males winning 1st place in female sports. Males in women’s homeless shelters. Male predators being placed in female prisons based on ‘feelings’ of being a woman,” tweeted Shupe.
“And Biden calls it the civil rights issue of our time. Women do you agree?” he asked.
