Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, a veteran of 47 years in office who has tried to create a reputation for bold, tough statements, said he will “flat out change the law” to force Americans to accept and embrace transgenderism.
Asked during an ABC News town hall meeting on Oct. 15 by a woman who claimed to be the mother of a transgender child how he’d counter the Trump administration’s efforts to maintain the scientific definition of genders, Biden boasted: “I will flat out change the law.”
Mieke Haeck of State College, Pa., told Biden she’s the “proud mom” of two children, age 8 and 10, and claimed the younger is transgender, as the Washington Blade recounted it.
Saying that the Trump administration has “attacked the rights of transgender people” with a ban on transgenderism in the military, weakening of non-discrimination “protections” and banning of the word “transgender” from government websites, Haeck asked: “How will you, as president, reverse this dangerous and discriminatory agenda and ensure that the lives and rights of LGBTQ people are protected under U.S. law?”
Without any hesitation Biden made his bold promise. The Democratic presidential nominee has said he’d sign the Equality Act, which expands nondiscrimination protections under federal law, within the first 100 days of his administration.
With increasingly characteristic vagueness, bordering on incoherence, Biden went on, “The idea that a eight-year-old child or 10-year-old child decides, you know, I decided I want to be transgender. That’s what I decided I’d like to be. It would make my life a lot easier.”
“There should be zero discrimination and what’s happening is too much transgender women of color are being murdered, they’re being murdered,” Biden said. When Biden said the number was 17, Haeck pointed upward to indicate the number was in fact higher now. Biden replied, “It’s higher now? That’s just this year.”
