A Madrid bus decorated with an anti-transgender message was banned and impounded in the city Wednesday in an effort to prevent a hate crime.

The orange-and-white bus used by a group campaigning against teaching schoolchildren about transgender people has several anti-transgender phrases written on it, The Associated Press reported.

One says, "If you're born a man, you're a man. If you're a woman, you will always be a woman." The vehicle created an outcry after it first appeared in public Monday.

The bus belongs to the Hazte Oir (Make Yourself Heard) organization, which previously has opposed abortion rights. The group opposes a campaign in Spanish schools last month by an association of families with transgender children that aimed to raise awareness of the issue.

The Hazte Oir organization said in a statement that it disapproved of teaching "sexual diversity," which it criticized as introducing the "dogma of the homosexual lobby in schools."

Gender identity is unrelated to sexual orientation, according to most experts.
