‘Just call things by their real names’: Christina Pushaw takes on Orwellian euphemism ‘gender-affirming care’

President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, held a Pride Month event at the White House in June, at which he issued an executive order promoting gender-affirming surgery. House Democrats also introduced a Transgender Bill of Rights to expand access to gender-affirming care. The Biden administration is all-in on gender-affirming care, but Florida is not. As we reported, Florida Department of Health press secretary Jeremy Redfern persisted in asking a reporter to explain exactly what she meant by “gender-affirming care.” And Gov. Ron DeSantis himself isn’t mincing words:

By gender-affirming care, you mean double mastectomies for minors, right?

As always, mainstream media are in lockstep with marching orders to use the Orwellian euphemism “gender-affirming care” instead of accurately describing what the Florida Medical Board is addressing.

“Affirming” to me means accepting kids as they are, assuring them that there’s nothing wrong with their body. True affirmation means helping them accept their body as they grow up, through therapy & support, as with teens who have eating disorders or body dysmorphia generally.

God bless y’all for leading yet again on a most serious, life-altering decision. Adults must have the temperance, good judgment, patience to help young people through the tempestuous years of youth to become fruitful, healthy adults.

“Affirming” in LEFT speak means being committed to supporting someone so completely that, regardless the level of self-harm the individual will experience, they can say they “supported” them…
It’s selfishness, really…

Castration is not care.

But we’ve been led to believe by then-press secretary Jen Psaki and by GLAD and Wired that gender-affirming care saves lives; all of these minors are bound to commit suicide if they don’t get the gender-affirming care they need ASAP, whether it be hormones or puberty blockers or surgery.
