President Joe Biden criticized Florida’s regulation of transgender medical care for children and ban on gender ideology in the classroom, calling the measures “close to sinful.”
Biden said in an interview with Daily Show guest host Kal Penn: “What’s going on in Florida is, as my mother would say, close to sinful. I mean it’s just terrible what they’re doing.”
Although the president did not specify which laws he was referring to, Republican lawmakers in Florida and other states have introduced bills and regulations to protect children from transgender medical interventions and restrict classroom instruction in gender ideology.
During his interview, Biden added that federal legislation might be necessary to prevent states from adopting certain bills that affect transgender policies related to children.
“It’s not like, you know, a kid wakes up one morning and says, ‘You know, I decided I want to become a man or I want to become a woman,” the president said. “I mean, what are they thinking about here? They’re human beings, they love and have feelings. … It’s cruel. We [should] make sure we pass [federal] legislation like we passed on same-sex marriage. You mess with that, you’re breaking the law and you’re going to be held accountable.”
In Florida, a ban on transgender surgeries and medications for children, issued by the state’s Board of Medicine, goes into effect March 16. Lawmakers have also proposed legislation banning transgender medical procedures.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed legislation that prevents schools from promoting gender ideology through discussions of transgenderism and sexual orientation to young children in kindergarten through third grade. The legislation requires such discussions in later grades to be age appropriate.
Other states, such as Mississippi, Utah, and South Dakota, have adopted similar legislation to ban sex change operations for children. Most states do not restrict sex change surgery for minors at this time….

Joe Biden is a disaster.
Nor is it a “good ” Catholic.
It may be cruel for some and kind for others. Like usual, schools, media and government want to treat people as if they are all the same.
Genuine transgender dysphoria is an extremely painful condition.
Treatments for it are not very good at this stage.
This is like arguing over whether every health condition should be treated with leeches.
I’m confused. Are those girls or boys?
The original caption says that the child on the right is transgender and that some of the others are.
That doesn’t answer the question. Transgender isn’t a biological nor sexual category. Are they girls or boys? Are they males or females? Not in their heads… in reality, in their bodies, in their anatomy, in their chromosomes.
The two on the left seem to have developing Adam’s Apples and the one on the right does not. They are even butchering boys and men (and that is what it is — butchering) by taking out their Adam’s Apples. They are grooming these children to think they are the opposite sex. The end game is the inability to reproduce as most will be neutered. As I said diabolical.
When I was growing up there was a saying: “The world is run by C students.”
Now I would say more like D & F students, at least as far as the virtues go. It was pretty bad when I was growing up, but at least everyone, with few exceptions, knew he or she was a man or a woman.
