This past Tuesday, former President Donald Trump initiated a wide-ranging proposal to try and protect the kids from what he claimed to be “left-wing gender insanity” by banning chemical and surgical procedures that have the intent to alter the sex of confused children.
As part of this declaration of war against radical gender theory, Trump went off on Biden and his administration’s “cruel policies” concerning what they call gender-affirming care and vowed to put a stop to all federal agencies from trying to promote any policies like that. Many conservatives broadly stand against the subjecting of kids suffering from gender dysphoria to chemical and surgical treatments, and a number of red states have entirely outlawed any such procedures from being carried out on any minors.
“Left-wing gender insanity being pushed on our children is an act of child abuse,” stated Trump, who has just recently kicked off his third bid to take over the Oval Office this past November and is so far the only mainstream Republican to have officially declared their intent to run for 2024. “Very simple.”
The announcement has taken place as radical gender ideology has cemented itself as a very hot-button issue. Most of the debate revolves around the actual distinction between biological sex and the social and cultural differences between the sexes — femininity and masculinity — with a number of people on the Left attempting to insist that gender is in no way linked to a person’s biological sex.
The Current Biden administration Department of Justice put forth its own letter late last year addressed to state attorney generals “reminding them” that policies and laws that block people from getting gender-affirming medical care may infringe on federal constitutional protections, which does seemingly include minors attempting to get this life-altering gender-affirming care.
“The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring that all children are able to live free from discrimination, abuse and harassment,” explained Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division via a recent press release. “Today’s letter reaffirms state and local officials’ obligation to ensure that their laws and policies do not undermine or harm the health and safety of children, regardless of a child’s gender identity.”
Trump promised that if he was successfully elected once again that his administration would quickly turn back the policies from Biden, which would include those allowing children easy access to puberty blockers, altering their physical appearance, and in a few cases actually being subjected to medical procedures and surgery such as double mastectomies for young girls.
