Dr. Rachel Levine, the first openly transgender federal official to be confirmed by the Senate, recently spoke at the Pediatric Grand Rounds session at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford.
During her speech, Levine praised the increasing acceptance of “gender-affirming care” and discussed the trend of the shocking surgery, indicating that the normalization of medically changing children’s genders may soon become a new norm.
Remember, Rachel Levine doesn’t just want you to ACCEPT trans-ing kids, you must CELEBRATE it.
That means you too, parents. You must CELEBRATE your child wanting to cut off her healthy breasts or else you’re a hateful bigot who shouldn’t parent. That’s how this works. pic.twitter.com/2LyFdv5jxK

Many people do not support gender reassignment surgery and other forms of gender-affirming care for children and argue that children should not undergo such procedures at all.
When discussing the opposition, Levine said “But I’m a positive and optimistic person, and I choose to be positive, optimistic. And I think that the wheels will turn on this.”
Allowing gender reassignment surgery for kids has become a top priority for the Left.
Earlier this week, Peggy Flanagan, the current Lieutenant Governor of Minnesota in the United States, made controversial comments earlier around children who are allowed to have sex change surgeries.The topic of “gender reassignment” for kids has been a topic of debate lately, however, Flanagan suggested that those against the surgery are bad parents.
“When our children tell us who they are, it is our job as grown-ups to listen and to believe them. That’s what it means to be a good parent,” said Flanagan. Despite Flanagan thinking children have enough autonomy for such a permanent decision, below are several things that children under the age of 18 cannot do in the United States:
- Vote: The legal voting age in the United States is 18 years old, so children under that age are not allowed to vote in any elections.
- Purchase tobacco and related products: In the United States, it is illegal to sell cigarettes, e-cigarettes, or other tobacco products to anyone under the age of 18.
- Purchase alcohol: The legal drinking age in the United States is 21 years old, so children under that age are not allowed to purchase, consume or possess alcoholic beverages.
- Work in hazardous occupations: There are restrictions on the types of jobs that minors can have, the hours they can work, and the working conditions they can be exposed to in order to ensure their safety and well-being.
- Get a tattoo: In many states, it is illegal for a minor to get a tattoo without parental consent.
- Purchase firearms and ammunition: In most states, individuals under the age of 18 are not allowed to purchase firearms or ammunition.
- Serve on a jury: Children under the age of 18 are not typically eligible to serve on a jury in the United States.
