(Headline USA) Elon Musk pointed out the incoherence of radical gender ideology this week, arguing that leftists want people to believe that gender exists on a spectrum while also advocating for experimental “gender reassignment” procedures.
Responding to a tweet from independent liberal journalist Matt Taibbi, who argued the Left is “institutionalizing stereotypes about gender in the same way academics have tried to institutionalize stereotypes about how ‘hard work,’ ‘being polite,’ ‘punctuality,’ and the ‘written word’ are ‘white culture,’” Musk said that all of transgenderism is a “dichotomy.”
“We are simultaneously being told that gender differences do not exist and that genders are so profoundly different that irreversible surgery is the only option,” he said on Twitter.

Perhaps someone wiser than me can explain this dichotomy.

Musk followed up with: “It is a better world if we are all less judgy.”
In Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton recently issued a legal opinion saying that performing “gender reassignment” procedures or administering hormone treatments to gender-confused youths constitutes abuse. Abbott also signed a directive ordering state child welfare officials to investigate reports of minor children receiving these treatments.
And in Florida, DeSantis’s Health Department moved to ban all Medicaid coverage for “gender reassignment care,” including puberty blockers, for children.
“While some professional organizations, such as the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Endocrine Society, recommend these treatments for ‘gender affirming’ care, the scientific evidence supporting these complex medical interventions is extraordinarily weak,” Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo said.
“The current standards set by numerous professional organizations appear to follow a preferred political ideology instead of the highest level of generally accepted medical science,” he continued.
“Florida must do more to protect children from politics-based medicine.”
