During a White House press conference on Wednesday, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was questioned on what age Biden thinks medicalized gender transitions are appropriate for minors, to which she said that it was up to the "child and their parents to decide."
"Today Indiana just banned puberty blockers, hormone therapies, and gender transition surgeries for minors. I’m wondering what the President’s reaction is to the Indiana governor signing that bill into law and does the President have a position on at what age these kinds of therapies and surgeries are appropriate?" one reporter asked.
"That’s something for a child and their parents to decide. It’s not something that we believe should be decided by legislators, so I’ll leave it there," Jean-Pierre responded.
"But, well, you know, in the past couple of months, we have seen a record number of LGBTQI bills, anti-LGBTQI bills, more than 600 of them have been filed in state houses, and a significant number of them have been anti-trans bills and, you know, targeted at youth."
"This is a president that has said that when these — these are some of the bravest people he knows, but no one should have to be brave just to be themselves. And so this is a president that has been committed to this community and has been committed to our kids in the trans community, to trans kids, and he’s going to continue to fight for them."
"But again, I’m just gonna leave it there," she concluded.
Following the fatal shooting at a Nashville Christian school carried out by Audrey Hale last month, who identified as transgender, Jean-Pierre proclaimed that the transgender community was "under attack" by so-called "anti-trans bills" across the nation.
"We’ve been very clear about these anti-LGBTQ bills that we’re seeing in state legislatures across the country, in particular, these anti-trans bills as they attack trans kids, as they attack trans parents. It is shameful, and it is unacceptable."
