Apple CEO Tim Cook has taken issue with laws passed in Florida and Texas that bans grooming children into gender ideology, and prohibits medical sterilization of minors. Additional laws, like those in Iowa, prevent biological males from competing in girls' sports. Arkansas has also banned this kind of surgery for children.

"As a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community," Cook said, "I am deeply concerned about laws being enacted across the country, particularly those focused on vulnerable youth."

Cook's Apple is one of more than 60 companies, inclusive of many tech firms, that is planning to run an ad in Texas on Tuesday to condemn the state for protecting children from dangerous surgeries and unapproved drugs to treat gender dysphoria. The White House has also taken aim at these laws, calling them discriminatory.

Apple, Google, Meta, Johnson & Johnson, Ikea, PayPal, Capitol One, Electronic Arts, and other firms will be running their ad opposing the state in the Dallas Morning News. They will be calling the practice of protecting healthy kids from taking drugs that lead to sterilization, or being given genital mutilation or breast removal surgeries, "discriminatory," according to Axios.

The Texas law also contains the provision that parents who allow their children to undergo medical gender transition through the use of surgeries or drugs that have not been FDA approved for this use, which Cook and others call "gender affirmative care," would be investigated for child abuse.

The ad will states that "The recent attempt to criminalize a parent for helping their transgender child access medically necessary, age-appropriate healthcare in the state of Texas goes against the values of our companies," going on to say "We call on public leaders — in Texas and across the country — to abandon efforts to write discrimination into law and policy."

Of the prohibition on genital mutilation surgeries and drugs that lead to sterilization with prolonged use, the ad reads "It's not just wrong, it has an impact on our employees, our customers, their families, and our work."

Pushback against the Florida law, which bans the grooming of children into gender ideology and requires schools to not keep secrets about their children's gender identity exploration at school, includes Disney CEO Bob Chapek.

Chapek weighed in on the law that prevents activist teachers from grooming K-3rd graders into adult sexuality, saying "I know that many are upset that we did not speak out against the bill. We were opposed to the bill from the outset, but we chose not to take a public position on it because we thought we could be more effective working behind the scenes, engaging directly with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle."

Disney has pledged to donate $5 million to Human Rights Watch, an organization that promotes medical gender transition in children, including puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and genital surgery.
