Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis criticized President Joe Biden for his recent comments on state laws that limit minors’ access to certain medical treatments and procedures. During an interview on “The Daily Show,” Biden referred to such laws as “close to sinful” and called for legislation to prevent states from interfering in the issue of “gender-affirming care” for children.

During the interview, Biden commented on DeSantis’s views of children accessing hormone blockers and sex change surgeries, saying:

“Transgender kids is really a harder thing,” he said. “What’s going on in Florida is, as my mother would say, close to sinful.”

“It’s terrible what they’re doing. It’s not like 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’ or ‘I want to change,’”

“What are they thinking about here? They are human beings. They love. They have feelings. They have inclinations that are. … It just, to me, is, I don’t know is, it’s cruel.”

Governor DeSantis countering of Biden’s remarks, arguing that it is not “sinful” to prohibit the “mutilation of minors” and that the federal government should not mandate procedures like sex change operations for children, went over with controversy – as expected.

DeSantis also stated that Florida’s recent ban on transgender surgeries, puberty blockers, and cross-sex hormones for minors was necessary to protect children from irreversible harm. Statements such as these are objectively true and need to state more. Females looking to transition will often look to synthetic testosterone, which can lead to strokes, heart attacks, liver damage, and permanent infertility. Men using synthetic estrogen can have enlarged breast tissue, permanent testicular atrophy, losing the ability to function sexually, and issues with muscle mass and bone density.

Biden acknowledged that the issue of “gender-affirming care” for minors is complicated. He suggested passing legislation to prevent states from restricting access to these procedures. He argued that transgender children deserve respect for their feelings and inclinations, and denying them medical treatment is cruel. However, allowing doctors to profit from mutilating children’s bodies is even crueler, as the initial surgery can cost between $80,000 and $200,000, and doctors can continue to profit by prescribing a lifetime of hormonal drugs. According to a recent report by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the number of young people identifying as transgender in the US has almost doubled since 2017. This may be due to a growing acceptance of transgender ideology, but it can also leave many children confused and seeking a transition. Worst of all, many aspects of the transition process can begin before a child is deemed competent to drive a car.


  1. all democrats are a maxist fascist racist pedophile cult trying to put their hands on your children

  2. Leave our kids alone this is something that`s personal that takes an adult decision by themselves. Go do yourselves.

  3. I do not understand the politics of encouraging CHILDREN to make a life changing, irreversable decision before they have even reached the age that we allow them to vote, drive a car, drink, or even decide what to have for dinner or when to go to bed. Cruel to encourage this and the applause so many are giving to the trans movement encourages young, insecure children to look for that applause no matter the future risks.
