It is such a relief to know that our country is in the absolute best of hands:
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra repeatedly dodged questions Wednesday from Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., regarding particulars of the department's stance on "gender-affirming care" for children.
You can kind of understand why so many people want to "dodge questions" about transgender "gender-affirming care." It's not pretty stuff—children are mutilated for life, vulnerable adults are exploited and encouraged in their delusions, it's all very bad stuff and nobody in charge of it wants to discuss it.
Becerra, for one, was clearly prepared to not really address the matter:
Braun moved on to the issue of irreversible surgeries, which the HHS lists as a gender-affirming treatment for adolescents on a "case-by-case basis."
"I'm not going to mention the particulars here," Braun said. "It's almost grotesque to imagine what could occur. Could you explain what irreversible top and bottom sex change surgeries are and why that is on the [HHS] portal, as well?"
Saying there are "many different types of procedures that can be deployed," Becerra reiterated that "in any case, no individual, no patient will proceed forward unless his or her doctor has advised of the procedure. And it is considered by the FDA and others who have to go ahead and certify a medicine or procedure to be safe and effective."
Cutting to the chase here:
"So I'll try to distill it into a more simple form," Braun cut in. "In what case would it be appropriate to perform irreversible sex change surgery on kids?"
"Those decisions are made by that individual in consultation with physician and caregivers, and no decision would be made without having consulted appropriately," Becerra replied.
Ahhh, okay. Boys are only castrated, and girls only have their breasts surgically removed, so long as the whole matter has been "consulted appropriately."
Thank goodness these people have thought everything true and have the best interest of these vulnerable children at heart!
