Confusion is a natural byproduct of torturing logic to conform the real world to religious doctrine.
Wolfe’s subtitle is correct. It aligns with what I previously wrote today:
The law prohibits ‘a healthcare prescriber from prescribing a course of treatment that involves hormone treatment for gender dysphoric or gender incongruent prepubertal minors.’
“These folks are baffled by transgender people to begin with. They are easily perplexed.”
Raymond Wolfe doesn’t seem to realize that the headline and the subtitle are incongruent. The prepubertal minors that Wolfe refers to are not receiving hormone treatments and are not candidates for hormones until after they enter puberty.
Yet, oh the horrors of gender-affirming care:
Tennessee’s latest move to protect children from the harms of transgenderism could save kids from life-threatening complications and other side effects associated with hormone drugs — including infertily. [sic] “Those in authority over the medical education system, and directives to practicing physicians, now recommend that all children, regardless of their age, be affirmed in their gender confusion,” Dr. Michelle Cretella, head of the American College of Pediatricians, noted at a Heritage Foundation webinar in February.
Gender expansive kids need protection from the harms created by religious crackpots like Mr. Wolfe. We are informed that Wolfe is a “Catholic Journalist.” That pretty much eliminates any medical expertise.
Quoting Michelle Cretella means one religious crackpot quoting another religious crackpot.
Wolfe actually gets it right but the idiot doesn’t understand what he is writing:
The Tennessee bill … does not explicitly ban surgeries and does not apply to children after they begin puberty.
Right. So it bans nothing.
These folks are baffled by transgender people to begin with. They are easily perplexed.
