Biden Calls Florida Gender-Transitioning Bill “Cruel” Argues For Federal Law To Block State

The Florida Legislature on Monday moved closer to banning irreversible sex-change procedures for children.

The Senate Committee on Health Policy passed a bill, introduced by Republican Sen. Clay Yarborough of Jacksonville, that outlaws sex-reassignment prescriptions or procedures for people under 18.

“We want to let kids be kids in Florida,” Yarborough told Florida’s Voice. “The overall goal of the bill is to protect the children of our state.”

But President Joe Biden believes that — and not the actual performing of sex-change procedures on children — is “sinful.”

Not only that, he wants a federal law to stop Florida and other red states from trying to protect children by outlawing transgender procedures on kids under 18.

In an interview with Kal Penn of the left-wing “The Daily Show,” Biden, who still identifies as Catholic, first defended gay marriage before turning his comments toward efforts to protect children in Florida.

“Now, transgender kids is a really harder thing,” Biden told 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.”

“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,” Biden added. “What are they thinking about here? They’re human beings. They love. They have feelings. They have inclinations.”

“To me, it’s cruel.”

He then suggested that the entire nation needs a law to guarantee sexual transitioning for minors along the lines of how the Respect for Marriage Act, which Biden enacted in December,

As a senator, Biden, as NPR pointed out at the time, once promoted ending funding for public schools that encouraged homosexuality as a “positive lifestyle alternative,” and voted for the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as between a man and a woman.

Yet now Biden has endorsed extending to gay couples the same federal benefits and recognition given to heterosexual couples.

“The way we do it [stop anti-transitioning laws for children such as Florida’s proposed measure] is to pass legislation like we passed on same-sex marriage,” Biden told Penn.

“You mess with that, you’re breaking the law and you’re going to be held accountable.”
