Marking Friday’s “transgender day of visibility,” the Biden administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released a new report “affirming LGBT youth.”
The president also tweeted that those who attempt to switch genders are “made in the image of God and deserving of dignity, respect, and support.” He pledged to never cease working towards a society “where you won’t have to be brave just to be yourself.”
Biden went further on Friday, issuing an official proclamation asserting that transgender Americans “shape our nation’s soul.” He charged that “too many transgender Americans are still denied…rights and freedoms.”
The president decried the recent surge in state laws intended to protect children from both radical surgeries and adult groomers. He said these statutes are “targeting transgender youth, terrifying families, and hurting kids who are not hurting anyone.”
In typical Biden fashion, he blasted “an epidemic of violence against transgender women and girls” before adding that it is particularly harming “women and girls of color.”
Just imagine if a straight white Christian male shot up a transgender event and the Trump White House released a statement saying: "White Christian males shape our nation's soul."

The HHS report is titled “Moving Beyond Change Efforts: Evidence and Action to Support and Affirm LGBT Youth.”
It determined that these youth are strong and can succeed in conditions where they are “supported and affirmed.” It lamented, however, that discriminatory laws and actions resulted in a “nationwide mental health crisis.”
The study concluded that the most critical action is needed for transgender youth. It accused restrictive policies of blocking access to health care and school inclusion. The policies it encouraged are clear.
Using its affirmative care model, children may undergo treatments using puberty blockers, cross-gender hormones, and even radical operations that include double mastectomies and phalloplasties.
Along with the report came an announcement from HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra. “On Transgender Day of Visibility and every day, we celebrate the courage and resilience of transgender people across this country in the face of violence, hatred, and bigotry.”
The report and accompanying proclamations made no mention of the transgender shooter who killed three nine-year-olds and three adults at a Christian elementary school in Nashville last week.
The killer’s “manifesto” has not been released.
Many on the left are tying the shooter’s actions to Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee’s recenting signing of new laws concerning transgender medical procedures. Now banned in the Volunteer State are gender change operations, cross-gender hormone treatments, and puberty blockers.
Drag performances on public property and before children are also outlawed.
