Biden Slammed Over Pride Month Posts

President Biden received criticism for a Pride Month proclamation and social media posts defending medical transitions for transgender youth.

The proclamation declared June LGBTQ Pride Month and focused on protecting transgender children from state laws limiting transitions.

“During Pride Month, we celebrate the extraordinary courage and contributions of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI+) community,” the proclamation read.

“Families across the country face excruciating decisions to relocate to a different State to protect their children from dangerous and hateful anti-LGBTQI+ laws, which target transgender children, threaten families, and criminalize doctors and nurses.”

“These bills and laws attack our most basic values and freedoms as Americans: the right to be yourself, the right to make your own medical decisions, and the right to raise your own children. Some things should never be put at risk: your life, your safety, and your dignity,” the proclamation added.

“To the entire LGBTQI+ community — and especially transgender children — please know that your President and my entire Administration have your back. We see you for who you are: made in the image of God and deserving of dignity, respect, and support.”

Responses argued that puberty blockers and hormones used on children amount to mutilation, and that Biden supports men accessing women’s spaces.

Others questioned how being made in God’s image fits with altering natural bodies, suggesting kids should instead learn self-acceptance.

“I never knew God took puberty blockers,” one X user wrote.

One comment said transgender ideology seeks to replace God’s design with a human construct, thus being evil.

“Biden is making it clear that MEN are getting privileges over WOMEN. He has their back if they want to enter women’s locker rooms and women’s sports. A sadistic form of womenhatred is normalised by the president,” another added.

“Why is ‘the image of god’ putting people in the wrong body that apparently only modern medicine can fix?” another wrote.

“If you believe we are ‘made in the image of God’ why do you support drugs and surgeries to cosmetically alter kids’ natural bodies? Should we not instead work to help all children accept and love their bodies?” one user said.
