Biden calls barring  kids’ access to puberty blockers, transgender surgeries ‘cruel’ and ‘close to sinful’

Lazy eyes listen


President Biden called Florida’s laws prohibiting chemical and surgical transgender “treatment” for children “cruel” and “nearly sinful” in an interview with Kal Penn on “The Daily Show” on Monday.

“As my mother would say, what’s going on in Florida is almost sinful. What they’re doing is terrible “Biden stated.

After telling a story about how he came to his views on same-sex marriage, Biden moved on to the topic of chemical and surgical treatment for gender-dysphoric children.

“It’s that easy,” he said. “It makes no difference whether the couples are same-sex or heterosexual. They should be allowed to marry. What exactly is the issue?”

“Transgender kids are a really difficult thing,” Biden continued.

“It’s not like a kid wakes up one morning and says, ‘You know, I’ve decided I want to become a man or a woman or I want to change,'” she says. Biden informed Penn.

“I mean, what exactly are they thinking here?” Biden inquires.

Though he did not specify which law he was referring to, the remark could have been in response to Florida’s recent actions prohibiting minor children from receiving cross-sex hormones, puberty blockers, and radical surgeries such as mastectomies and vaginoplasties.

“They are, after all, human beings. They love; they have feelings; they have inclinations “Biden couldn’t finish his sentence.

“It just is to me. I’m not sure. It’s inhumane “He added, gesticulating to emphasize.

“We do it by passing legislation like the one we passed on same-sex marriage,” Biden said, as the camera cut away from Penn, who nodded.

“If you tamper with that, you’re breaking the law, and you’ll be held accountable,” Biden said.

The president appeared to imply that the same laws that allow same-sex marriage should also allow minor children who suffer from gender dysphoria to receive chemical and surgical interventions.

In November 2022, Florida’s Boards of Medicine and Osteopathic Medicine voted to prohibit puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and transgender-related surgeries. In February, the two medical boards closed a loophole that had allowed children who were part of a clinical trial to receive the controversial “treatments,” as TheBlaze reported.
