Billionaire Elon Musk weighed in on the controversial topic of “gender-affirming” surgery for children, a practice that is drawing much outrage from many people while it is being championed by those at the top levels of the federal government, including President Joe Biden.
On Thursday, the SpaceX/Tesla CEO and Twitter owner took to the platform to offer up his two cents, coming out against the sexual mutilation of minors who undergo the irreversible procedures at a young age along with the potent drugs and propaganda that are fed to kids by those seeking to assimilate them into the transgender cult, remarks that will only draw more attention to the growing debate over the morality of the life-altering surgeries.
In a reply to a tweet of a video of Peggy Flanagan, the radical leftist who serves as the lieutenant governor of Minnesota and her argument that allowing young boys to have their penises chopped off and young girls to undergo double mastectomies was good parenting, Musk wrote, “Not when they’re fed propaganda by adults.”
“Moreover, every child goes through an identity crisis before their personality/identity crystallizes,” added the father of ten children.
“Therefore, we shouldn’t allow severe, irreversible surgery or sterilizing drugs that they may regret until at least age 18,” Musk added.

The reaction to the world’s richest man effectively condemning one of the most sacred rites of the “woke” left’s false religion of transgender idolatry nearly broke Twitter with the vast majority of responses being those of praise for Musk’s willingness to wade into the toxic ideological war that has upended America.
This is Elon Musk risking everything to fight the woke mind virus. https://t.co/xGmTkvXGYp

When did this just stop becoming common sense and crazy took over? We actually have to say this?

Thank you for taking a stand on this, Elon. It has to stop!

That is a rational response to an emotional question Elon. If kids aren’t allowed to make life decisions like leaving home before 16, smoking till 18 or drinking alcohol until 21 than how are children able to make a decision like I want to fight truth, nature and biology.

The fact that this view is considered controversial is so sad.

A common-sense position that only the mentally ill would oppose. Unfortunately, the inmates appear to be attempting a coup of the asylum

We need to call gender affirming care for what it is, child genital mutilation with hormone disruptors. We as adults should protect our children, they are growing and going through many changes that they are struggling to understand.

However, others weren’t pleased.

This is deeply concerning. A prominent figure who has sole ownership over a portion of the worlds media and what people hear and see online should not be making dangerous statements that indirectly incite violence and hatred against the trans community https://t.co/Y6S5MIaVNN

You are so misinformed yet again Elon Musk. This is the problem with you responding

With the pushback against sex change surgery for minors intensifying as states move to ban the barbaric procedures, the divider-in-chief blasted parental rights laws while calling for new federal legislation to punish those who seek to protect the children.
“What’s going on in Florida is, as my mother would say, close to sinful,” Biden said during a recent interview. “I mean, it’s just terrible what they’re doing.”
President Biden says that federal legislation is needed to prohibit states from restricting the medical transitioning of minors.

“And the way we do it is we make sure we pass legislation like we passed on same-sex marriage and you mess with that, you’re breaking the law, and you’re going to be held accountable,” he vowed in his latest authoritarian threat against those who resist the “woke” cultural revolution and the imposition of the ideology of a minuscule but influential demographic that is less a persecuted minority than it is a powerful political movement.
Musk’s rejection of the procedures will only further fuel the left’s hatred against him and strengthen the censorship regime’s resolve to silence him.
