President Joe Biden, a self-described Catholic, affirmed in word and deed the mutilative practice of abusive, irreversible gender surgeries and “treatments” in an interview that aired Sunday.
During a NowThis News presidential forum at the White House, the president allowed himself to be interviewed by Dylan Mulvaney, a man who became TikTok-famous for his series called “100 Days of Girlhood” documenting his supposed “transition” to becoming a girl. (Mulvaney also did a recent podcast interview with makeup brand Ulta Beauty on “The Beauty of … Girlhood,” and the backlash contributed to Ulta’s stock value falling last week.)
The Biden interview began with Mulvaney stating “Mr. President, this is my 221st day of publicly transitioning,” to which Biden interjected in his classic Catholic-appropriating diction “God love you.” Mulvaney then asked Biden if he thought “states should have a right to ban gender-affirming health care.” (By bans on “gender-affirming health care,” Mulvaney was referring to state restrictions on health professionals administering cross-sex hormones and mutilative genital surgeries to children.)
Biden responded by saying that protecting minors from things like puberty blockers, chemical castration, and irreversible surgeries is “wrong” both legally and morally. “I don’t think any state or anybody should have the right to do that, as a moral question and as a legal question,” said Biden. “I just think it’s wrong.”
Later in the interview, Biden reiterated his belief that transgenderism possesses the moral high ground and Republican lawmakers seeking to protect children do not. “The idea that what’s going on in some states … it’s just outrageous, and I think it’s immoral. The trans part’s not immoral. What they’re trying to do to trans persons is immoral,” he stated.
The Federalist reached out to the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops and USCCB president, Archbishop José Horacio Gómez, for comment on Biden’s remarks, but did not hear back by publication time.
Historically, the Catholic Church of which Biden claims to be a part expresses a different take on human sexuality. The Church teaches that people are born either biologically male or female. Moreover, the Church instructs Catholics, like Biden, to not support and fuel gender dysphoria, which is a serious mental disorder that denounces truth and biology.
In the Vatican’s 2019 condemnation of the gender revolution and its denial of the “metaphysical roots of sexual difference,” the Church also argued the trans agenda is an attack on the family and that children must be protected from gender activists’ perverted ideology.
While Biden expressed full support of the transgender agenda in contradiction to the Church’s teachings, he couldn’t cognitively separate transgendering kids from the idea of child abuse.
At the end of the interview, Biden made a true Freudian slip and began talking about his late son Beau Biden’s foundation “for abused children,” after Mulvaney asked him an unrelated question about families accessing trans “resources.”
“[Beau] started a foundation […] for abused children. And one of the things he did is raised millions of dollars for this organization to basically educate parents as to what they should not be afraid of. And to educate the community as to what is just pure hyperbole,” said Biden.
The Beau Biden Foundation’s expressed mission is to protect children from sexual predators, particularly by educating children, parents, and child welfare professionals and also bolstering “national child protection laws.”
Indeed, the Beau Biden Foundation seems particularly relevant to the topic of chemically castrating and mutilating children for the sick pleasure of predatory trans activists. Welfare professionals, parents, and children also need to be better educated on the often irreversible damages and long-term health problems that come with “transitioning” minors whose brains are not even fully developed to consent to such “treatment.” Moreover, state and national laws should do more to protect children from these abusive and damaging hormones and procedures.
Perhaps the president intended to suggest that parents would be the potential abusers in a situation where their child rejected his biology. That accusation is terrifying — and disastrously ignores who is inflicting real pain and damage on confused kids.
Either way, Biden doesn’t seem to notice the irony in promoting Beau’s anti-child abuse foundation while simultaneously supporting the radical trans movement that specializes in abusing minors. Not only did he endorse the butchering and psychological torment of children, but he did it while invoking things like God and morality, maliciously distorting sacred and clear Catholic teachings.
