Florida recently banned the practice of "gender-affirming" treatments to protect children in the state.
Sick adults were convincing children too young to know better that they were "trapped" in the body of the wrong gender and trying to get them to have life-altering surgery as a result.
This included mutilating the children's genitals.
President Joe Biden was furious that doctors in Florida weren't going to be allowed to chop off a kid's penis at age twelve, calling it "close to sinful."
"What’s going on in Florida is, as my mother would say, close to sinful. It’s just terrible what they’re doing," Biden said. "It’s not like a kid wakes up one morning and says, ‘You know, I decided I wanted to become a man or want to become a woman or I want to change.; I mean, what are they thinking about here? They’re human beings. They love, they have feelings, they have inclinations."
Biden went on to say it was "cruel" to tell these kids we're not going to remove their private parts until they were old enough to realize the consequences. Gov. Ron DeSantis disagreed. So did the rest of America.
It is not "sinful" to prohibit the mutilation of minors.
It is not acceptable for the federal government to mandate that procedures like sex change operations be allowed for kids. https://t.co/YhPrrU5Poi
