Before a crowd of tens of thousands of supporters Saturday night, President Donald Trump decried the Democrat Party’s “far-left gender theories” and the controversy they have sparked across the country regarding parental rights.
Speaking at a “Save America” rally in Michigan, Trump said: “America’s moms and dads must be given a veto over anyone teaching far-left gender theories to their children in school without parental consent. This week, the Biden administration released guidance endorsing hormone therapy, puberty blockers, and sex-changing surgeries for children and minor youth.
“Biden’s Department of Justice has also announced they will punish medical doctors who refuse to perform irreversible, highly controversial transgender procedures,” Trump added. “I can’t even believe it.”
Noting that children have not been the only group affected by these policies, Trump declared: “With their extremist sex and gender ideology, the Democrat Party is waging war on reality, war on science, war on children, war on women. The Republican Party is now the party of American women and American children, and we will protect women in sports […] and not allow men to enter into the women’s games.”
In response, the crowd erupted into cheers and chants of “We love Trump!”
The gender policies of the left have become a hot-button issue as of late. The driving force behind the controversy over Florida’s “Parental Rights in Education” bill, often deceptively referred to as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, the topic is shaping up to be a key issue in the 2022 midterm elections.
