Rev. Bill Owens of the Coalition of African-American Pastors told Brietbart, “There is simply no relation between the struggles that Black Americans have faced and the desire of a tiny minority group to violate the dignity and privacy of women and girls. To suggest some sort of equivalence is a gross insult to all of those who marched with Dr. King and faced fire hoses and hatred in the name of equality.”

Owens added, “Transgendered persons are not asking for equal rights — they are asking for special rights."

According to One News Now, public policy analyst Abraham Hamilton II of the American Family Association — creator of the "Boycott Target Pledge" — argued, "There has not been one individual who's been lynched for being transgender in America. There's not one person who's been pulled over for driving while transgender. I mean, that doesn't happen. There's not been one person who's had dogs 'sicced' on them by police [for being transgender]. Those things are not synonymous."

Project 21 black leadership network member Derryck Green agreed, saying, The physical and emotional abuse blacks endured under segregation, on a good day, are in no way analogous to the adulation and 'rights' that those who suffer from gender dysphoria are experiencing and receiving. For the Obama administration to say as much insults the intelligence, and brazenly disrespects the tradition of, the black civil rights movement."
