In response to a viral video of a transgender social media influencer going topless on the South Lawn of the White House during the Pride event on Saturday, a statement condemning the shameless acts was released by the White House on Monday. A spokesperson for the White House has said the Tik Tok influencer that posed after removing their top, Rose Montoya, and others featured in the video will be barred from attending future events.

The statement said:

This behavior is inappropriate and disrespectful for any event at the White House. It is not reflective of the event we hosted to celebrate LGBTQI+ families or the other hundreds of guests who were in attendance. Individuals in the video will not be invited to future events.

The White House has not released the names of the individuals banned from future attendance at the White House, but at least two individuals removed articles of clothing to pose in the video, including another transgender individual, a biological female who underwent surgery to have breast tissue removed. 

Montoya doesn’t offer shocked and disrespected Americans an apology or recognize the international embarrassment such behaviors cause for the country as a whole or the gays and lesbians who don’t wish to be viewed as engaging in the public debauchery associated with Pride month events. Instead, Montoya doubled down, citing legality… and joy.

Montoya responded on Tik Tok, saying:

It has recently come to my attention that conservatives are trying to use the video of me topless at the White House to try to call the community ‘groomers,’ etcetera…

Montoya says that by calling topless jiggling breasts at the national historic site inappropriate, conservatives have conceded that Montoya is a real woman, arguing that only women acting in a sexually provocative manner is deemed improper behavior:

Why is my chest now deemed inappropriate or illegal when I show it off? However, before coming out as trans it was not. All you’re doing is affirming that I am a woman. All you’re doing is saying that ‘trans women are women,’ because for some reason people like to sexualize women’s bodies and say they are inappropriate.

Just to recap, according to the Transgender exhibitionist, the reason women generally don’t remove their tops on the White House lawn is because they are oppressed and objectified.

Montoya continued:

I fully support the movement and freeing the nipple.

Montoya also states that this is a legal expression of ”joy”:

My trans masculine friends were showing off their top surgery scars and living in joy, and I wanted to join them. And because it is perfectly within the law of Washington, D.C. I decided to join them and cover my nipples just to play it safe.

Montoya added:

I had zero intention of trying to be vulgar or be profane in any way. I was simply living my joy, and my truth, and existing in my body.

During the White House Pride event on Saturday, President Joe Biden said in his remarks:

We all talk about courage. Well, I see more courage on this lawn than I’ve seen in any time in the recent past.

The President expressed that the audience members were leading by example, saying, “You set an example for the nation and, quite frankly, for the world.”
