- Transgender Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine says that gender-affirming care for minors has the ‘highest support’ of the Biden administration
- Levine promised medically changing children’s gender would be normalized -praising the controversial medical intervention banned in several states
- Levine was invited to speak at the event about the Florida Parental Rights in Education law and the political implications of gender reassignment surgery
From a Buddhist POV Levine’s commitment to this is immoral, unethical, and cruel. Framing it as ‘support’ or ‘gender-affirming’ is linguistic butchery. It is anti-science to harm children, who do not have the mental development to make a decision like this. From a Buddhist POV, pretending to medically change children’s sexes confirms in them the delusion that an identity based on external or sensory factors is a very important thing about them, if not the most important. It is not. That a government official is promoting these practices illustrates how facilely the human mind can slide into criminal delusion. It also shows that delusions come from people, our own minds or those of others. There is no way surgically or chemically altering children’s bodies based on the perverse fantasies of adults can possibly be a good thing. Not a chance. ABN
