At presidential candidate Joe Biden’s TV town hall last week, the mother of “two girls, eight and 10” whose “youngest daughter is transgender” asked if he would reverse President Trump’s supposed “dangerous and discriminatory agenda” against trans people. Biden’s response? That he will “flat-out just change the law.”
Biden continued, “The idea that an 8-year-old child or a 10-year-old child decides, you know, ‘I decided I want to be transgender. That’s what I think I’d like to be. It would make my life a lot easier.’ There should be zero discrimination.”
Greenlighting the “transition” of eight-year-olds in the name of non-discrimination to advance your political career has to be one of the most cynical political moves of this presidential contest. Biden is a supporter of the Equality Act, legislation House Democrats passed in 2019.
That bill’s form of “nondiscrimination” against transgender people would require ending sex-based privacy protections in prisons, homeless and abused women’s shelters, locker rooms, sports teams, and bathrooms, including for children in schools. It would ban all forms of therapy for confused children that do not push them to behave as the opposite sex. It would also likely allow medical professionals who profit from surgically and chemically altering children to continue to experiment on them in the name of transgender rights. That is because the bill would codify making it “discrimination” to treat people based upon their actual biology.
Eight-year-olds do not have the capacity to reasonably determine their own sugar intake, screen time, and bedtime. So why are some parents, some doctors, and now a presidential candidate advocating for their ability to choose permanent, life-altering medical treatments? That’s exactly what it means when an eight-year-old “decides to be transgender.”
We’re not talking simply about children rejecting superficial gender stereotypes. In 2020 we all know that women can be successful SCOTUS nominees, and men can be accomplished artists and bakers. Affirming the confusion of a “transgender” child is something altogether different. Something that sets children up to be lifelong customers of Big Pharma and cosmetic surgeons.
Let’s take a look at the trans activist’s prescribed path for an eight-year-old who wants to “transition,” shall we? While some trans children do not participate in all these activities, Biden’s platform makes way for all of them to be open to children, and indeed the preferred path for such children, despite their dangerous, damaging, and life-altering effects.
First, for little girls who want to “present” as boys, parents can purchase “little packers” (or crochet their own) to give their elementary-school daughters the appearance of a penis. Boys will likely visit websites offering tutorials on how to “tuck and tape” their actual penises, which can result in complications such as urinary trauma, testicular pain, and testicular torsion.
As they develop, girls will be encouraged to wear chest binders to compress their breasts, which can lead to compressed ribs and collapsed lungs. Strange how Chinese foot-binding and Victorian corsets are deemed regressive, yet “progressives” cheer when kids bind their sexual organs.
While their bodies are being shaped externally by prosthetics, tape, and binders, doctors will go to work altering trans kids’ bodies internally through puberty blockers. Puberty, a sign of healthy human development, is the great enemy of the trans movement.
Trans children are encouraged to take puberty blockers, usually Lupron, which induces a state of sickness in their healthy body. Lupron is a synthetic hormone primarily used to treat prostate cancer in men, and it has a long list of side effects. Shockingly, Lupron has not been approved for use in children. So the eight-year-old Biden encouraged to “transition” will be subjected to an experimental treatment that increases his chances of memory loss, stroke, cardiac arrest, cancer, and skeletal problems.
But wait, there’s more! It’s not enough to just “block” puberty in this healthy eight-year-old, transgender protocols drown him in cross-sex hormones as well. Girls will be prescribed (or simply pop over to their local Planned Parenthood to pick up) high levels of testosterone, and boys will be put on estrogen.
According to the American College of Pediatricians, “cross-sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to cardiac disease, high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke, diabetes, and cancer.” A “transgender” eight-year-old will need to consume these cross-sex hormones for life.
Of course, the ultimate expression of this eight-year-old’s transgender path is “gender affirmation surgery” in which doctors amputate healthy, fully-functioning organs. Despite the waves of “detransitioners” sharing their stories of how these “treatments” have not improved the mental health or suicide rates among trans-identifying individuals, double mastectomies are still being conducted on girls as young as 13.
It’s not “discriminatory” to tell a child that he doesn’t need prosthetics, tape, binders, puberty-blockers, cross-sex hormones, amputation, and cosmetic surgery to be his true self. And it’s very likely child abuse to tell him that he does.
What if, instead of encouraging an eight-year-old and his mother to mutilate his body, Biden encouraged this boy to love his body regardless of whether he plays with Barbies, prefers pink, and eschews crew cuts? After puberty, this eight-year-old would very likely embrace his maleness, as is the case with 98 percent of boys and 88 percent of girls who experience gender confusion.
Most trans children will end up being happy and secure in their authentic sex as adults if gender activists, doctors, and presidential candidates would simply allow them to develop normally.
