The Left's campaign for gender-reassignment procedures for children has met with significant criticism, and many ask why letting minors to make a permanent choice about their gender should be a key concern. Yesterday, Dr. Rachel Levine, the first openly transgender government employee to be approved by the Senate, appeared at Connecticut Children's Medical Center's Pediatric Grand Rounds session. During her talk, Levine lauded the growing acceptance of "gender-affirming treatment" and mentioned the trend of the startling procedure, implying that the normalcy of surgically changing child's genders may soon become the 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

Conservatives, who feel that minors should not be permitted to make such a life-altering choice, have responded negatively to Levine's statements. Peggy Flanagan, the current lieutenant governor of Minnesota in the United States, issued controversial remarks about minors who are permitted to have gender reassignment surgery. Flanagan said that individuals who oppose the operation are negligent parents.

That's what it means to be a good parent." pic.twitter.com/GJsZ1CiiRZ

This is simply another instance of the Left promoting an agenda that is not in the children's best interests. It is absurd that the Left is pushing to mainstream gender reassignment surgery for minors when there are so many other things that Americans under the age of 18 are not permitted to do. Children are prohibited from voting, purchasing cigarettes or alcohol, working in dangerous jobs, getting a tattoo, purchasing guns or ammunition, and serving on juries. So why should kids be permitted to choose their gender permanently?
The Left's campaign for minors to undergo gender reassignment surgery is a dangerous goal that must not be taken lightly. Parents must be aware of what their children are exposed to and be able to make educated choices on their child's health and wellbeing. It is extremely important for conservatives to oppose this agenda and ensure that those promoting their own political agenda do not exploit children.
