(BLP) – On Wednesday, President Biden is expected to sign an executive order at a White House event aimed at “advancing LGBTQI+ equality.” He is also expected to blast Republicans for allegedly “bullying” LGBT minors.
Per a senior administration official to Fox News: “[Biden will] forcefully condemn the discriminatory attacks on LGBTQI+ children and families that are seeing all across the country.”
“He will talk about how these bills are worsening the mental health crisis that LGBTQ youth are facing, putting them at greater risk of suicide,” he added. “President Biden always stands up to bullies, and that’s what these extreme MAGA laws and policies do. They bully kids.”
Of course, it’s not clear what “discriminatory attacks” the President is referring to. Nor is it understood what “extreme MAGA laws and policies” are responsible for this alleged attack on LGBT children and the high suicide rate amongst the community.
The expected executive order will also call on the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to ensure minors can receive gender transition surgeries. It will also “crackdown on conversion therapy”, calling on HHS to clarify that federally funded programs cannot endorse the practice.
One of the leading Republicans this executive order is likely attacking is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Who has routinely denounced transition surgeries for minors.
“I would ban the… Yeah, I would ban the sex-change… the operations,” DeSantis said in May. “I think that it’s something that you can’t get a tattoo if you’re 12 years old. When they say gender-affirming care, what they mean a lot of times is you are really – you’re castrating a young boy, you’re sterilizing a young girl, you’re doing mastectomies for these very young girls. And here’s the thing, what our guidance pointed to, and the surgeon general did a great job, for these young kids, 80% of the cases resolve themselves as they grow up. And so you’re doing things that are permanently altering them, and then they’re not gonna be able to reverse that.”
It appears as though the President is looking to double down on the left’s acceptance and promotion of LGBT themes for children. The order comes at the halfway point of Pride Month and is intended to channel the public conversation around transitioning children, in addition to puberty blockers and hormones for minors.
While the mainstream media and White House continue to push for more acceptance of trans children and athletes, everyday Americans are fighting back to reverse this damaging trend in the culture.
