Elon Musk weighs in on debate on whether children should undergo transgender medical treatments
Billionaire Elon Musk stirred the pot on Twitter on Friday morning with his unfiltered thoughts on what should happen to parents and doctors who put children through transgender medical treatments.
His declaration came in reply to libertarian commentator Josie Glabach, a.k.a. The Redheaded Libertarian, who had shared an MSNBC op-ed that criticized Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. DeSantis and Republicans across the nation are pushing for legislation that would ban transgender medical treatments for minors,including puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgeries
Musk's comments were cheered by Republican lawmakers who oppose permitting gender dysphoric children to undergo transgender medical procedures, which is considered best practice by major medical groups, including the American Medical Association, the Children's Hospital Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
