Biden admin is pushing other countries to do sex changes on children: REPORT

The Biden administration is pressing foreign countries to crack down on forms of psychotherapy that do not automatically affirm children’s transgender identities and instead encourage children to transition, according to leaked documents obtained by the publication. City Journal of the Manhattan Institute.

An internal memo shared by Secretary of State Antony Blinken reportedly instructed embassies to “submit robust information on so-called ‘conversion therapy’ practices” in their host countries as part of their annual human rights reports. according to to the city newspaper. Blinken’s definition of conversion therapy reportedly includes “talk therapy” for children with gender dysphoria that aims to help patients feel comfortable with their natural bodies.

Conversion therapy generally refers to clinical attempts to stop patients from feeling same-sex attraction, which has historically included practices such as shock therapy, according to to Reuters. However, transgender advocates, along with the Biden administration, are increasing wearing the finished to describe health professionals who help children accept their birth sex rather than affirm their gender identities and put them on the path to medicalization, which can include puberty blockers, hormones, and surgery.

The Blinken memo puts the US on the path to potentially classifying countries that are most skeptical about sex reassignments in children, such as Sweden, Finland and the UK, as human rights violators, and the State Department will use the diplomats’ reports to create an “action.” plan to combat the practice across foreign policy and foreign assistance lines of effort,” according to City Journal.

The move comes about a year after President Joe Biden’s executive organize requiring federal agencies to crack down on conversion therapy, which the memo says includes efforts to “suppress or change an individual’s gender identity or gender expression.” The Blinken memo is an attempt to enforce that within the State Department, according to the City Journal.

The Biden administration’s interpretation of conversion therapy is similar to that of Jessica Stern, Biden’s special envoy for promoting the human rights of LGBTQI+ people and former executive director of OutRight Action International, a United Nations-affiliated group that has fueled the concept that affirmative therapy for gender dysphoria is not conversion therapy, according to City Journal.

As the Biden administration promotes sex changes in children through various agencies of the federal bureaucracy, some countries in Europe are speeding up medical interventions for young people: Finland calls the practice “experimental,” according to City Journal; the UK closed its pediatric gender clinic to replace it with smaller regional centers after reports found the clinic was rushing boys into blocking puberty; and Sweden has banned cross-sex surgeries for minors and encourages doctors to focus on talk therapy and avoid administering cross-sex drugs, according to City Journal.

Puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones are routinely prescribed to minors in the US, and many patients experiencing gender dysphoria have undergone double mastectomies as minors to present as male.
