The Republican rush to oppose transgender people has taken a turn in Missouri, where Sen. Josh Hawley (R) is up for reelection in 2025.

In a fundraising email to his supporters, Hawley asked folks to give to his campaign so he could help stop schools from teaching that there's more than one gender.

"Blue states are teaching kids transgender propaganda in schools when they're as young as first graders," Hawley claims in a screen capture posted by New York Times reporter Ken Vogel. "These teachings go against nature, science, and common sense — but this is what Liberals (sic) want our children to learn."

At the bottom, he asks users to click a button to take the "survey" Option 1 is "Yes — keep transgender propaganda OUT" and the second option is "No — teach young children there is more than one gender."

The email does not go on to identify which gender it is that Hawley believes everyone will be.

The screen capture drew quick sarcasm and jokes from the web, with at least one person posting the photo of the QAnon crowd from Donald Trump's rally holding up the No. 1 finger.
