Greene's comments on drag queens prove she can't tell women from men.

Not today, Marjorie Taylor Greene!

Far-right politician and conspiracy theory peddler Marjorie Taylor Greene, who represents the 14th District of Georgia in the US House of Representatives, just took another major loss on social media, this time, involving a drag queen.

Greene, who is known for saying California wildfires were caused by "space lasers" owned by Jewish businessmen, crying about the imminent "extinction" of straight people, and many other ridiculous claims, has now tried to call out a drag queen — and she's failed spectacularly.

Drag queen and artist Brigitte Bandit appeared on CNN recently to talk about how she is currently lobbying congress for LGBTQ+ protections.

Bandit was asked how she responds to former President Trump saying he wants to withdraw federal funding from any school that teaches "critical race theory" or "transgender insanity."

"We already see so many attacks on our queer community. I already don't feel safe in my own home town dressed in drag like this," Bandit said. "And it's very scary for queer people to exist in a time where we see this kind of rhetoric being pushed by our lawmakers and the people who should care about other issues that actually affect the American people, other than attacking our community. It's very disappointing and I hope for better for our country."

Greene tweeted out the clip of Bandit's appearance on CNN and said, "No, what's scary is men pretending to be women reading gender cult lying books to our children, provocatively dancing nearly nude in public spaces, and taking over our bathrooms, sports, and private spaces. Women and children need protection from them."

But Brigitte Bandit is having none of that nonsense.

The first problem with Greene's claims is that Bandit is not a man. Yes, probably to Greene's disbelief, cisgender women can (and often do) participate in the art of drag.

"Hi Marjorie! I'm Brigitte, and I'm the queen in the clip. I'm born female and not a man. You are just proving that gender is socially constructed and have no idea what you're talking about and why you should have no say in our lives."

Amen to that!
