Florida Ban On Gender Transitioning For Minors Is Now In Effect

Florida’s rule to stop minors from undergoing gender transition procedures has now come into effect — and Republican state lawmakers are forging ahead with plans to strengthen the restrictions even further.

The Florida Board of Medicine’s new measure — which took effect Thursday — prohibits the use of puberty blockers, hormone therapies or surgeries to treat gender dysphoria for anyone in the Sunshine State under the age of 18.

While kids who were already receiving gender-affirming treatment prior to Thursday can continue to do so, they aren’t able to undergo sex reassignment surgeries under the new rule.

Separately, GOP lawmakers are currently advancing a bill through the Florida Senate that’ll make it a felony to provide any such gender-affirming care to minors, as well as ban state funds from being used to cover the same care for adults.

A companion bill has also been introduced in the state House. Ahead of the gender ban taking effect, Gov. Ron DeSantis defended his position after President Biden gave an interview saying Florida’s new rule was “close to sinful.”

“Only W he’s done for Florida prolly,” someone commented on the news. “Good because y’all be getting a lil too comfortable doing it,” another person wrote.

“Ion see what’s the point cause at 18 they’re gonna do it anyway soooo just a waste of time,” someone else added.
