Florida Governor Ron DeSantis went ham and cheese on Democrats for their support of childhood sex changes. He compared the “transition” surgeries being performed on children to science experiments on guinea pigs.
DeSantis acknowledged ‘detransitioner’ Chloe Cole for her bravery and going against the grain to bring awareness to what she went through.
He declared, “It’s sad that we have to say this, but our children are not guinea pigs for science experimentation and we cannot allow people to make money off mutilating them. Chloe Cole is now a young adult, but she was receiving puberty blockers at age 13 and she underwent a double mastectomy at age 16.”
The Sunshine State’s governor continued, “She’s now an advocate against allowing these procedures for our children. Chloe, thank you for your bravery and the people of Florida and the legislature should heed your advice and provide protections against these procedures.”

Trending Politics News reports:
Chloe Cole is an American activist who started her transition at the age of 12 and underwent treatment, which involved puberty blockers, testosterone, and a double mastectomy, but later de-transitioned at the age of 17. Cole first gained public attention in March 2021, after testifying in front of the South Dakota legislature in support of a bill that would ban gender-affirming healthcare for minors.
She has been vocal about her own experiences with gender transition and detransition, and has stated that she believes she was not old enough to make such life-altering decisions at the time. Cole has been criticized by some members of the LGBTQ+ community for her advocacy work, with some accusing her of being used as a tool by conservative politicians to push anti-trans legislation.
In addition to her advocacy work, Cole is a student at a college in Texas.
Chloe now advocates for children and speaks out on the horrible truth of transitioning as a child.
On Wednesday, she tweeted in response to a question asking, “Name 10 cases of any children being mutilated over the last year. I bet you can’t.”
She wrote, “According to a Komodo Analysis of insurance claims, there were 56 genital surgeries performed on minors in the last 3 years. The amount of double mastectomies is in the thousands. This was all covered by insurance which is a rarity. The number out of pocket is much higher…”

How truly insane is it that you have to show an ID to buy cough syrup but it takes less than that to get life altering surgeries? Democrats are really off their rocker with this one…
