Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and Twitter, stated on his social media platform on Thursday night that he believes anyone who carries out sterilization on a child to make them feel like the opposite sex deserves a life sentence in prison.
Musk’s comment came in response to an individual who highlighted the outcry from the left against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R) position that “sex change” procedures on children should be unlawful in Florida.
Musk stated, “Any parent or doctor who sterilizes a child before they are a consenting adult should go to prison for life.”

The use of the term “sterilization” may be alluding to the effects of hormone-altering medications, commonly known as puberty blockers, which can lead to infertility.
Various other “gender-affirming” medical procedures also result in sterilization as they attempt to alter a patient’s sexual organs surgically, creating an artificial resemblance to the reproductive organs of the opposite sex. These procedures are frequently referred to as “bottom surgery” by transgender advocates.
It’s worth noting that one of Musk’s children has come out as transgender and, after reaching the age of 18 last year, changed their name to distance themselves from Musk.
Musk’s acquisition of Twitter was partly motivated by an incident involving The Babylon Bee, a Christian satirical website whose account was temporarily suspended for referring to Rachel Levine, a transgender government official, as a man. After purchasing the platform, Musk promptly restored the company’s access to its account.
According to an Economist/YouGov poll, swing voters are in agreement with Republican voters on transgender-related matters, while Democratic voters appear to be more divided on the issue. This finding suggests that GOP politicians should take note in their 2024 campaigns, as most individuals do not seem to support the far-left perspective.
In contrast, celebrities, TV programs, media establishments and left-wing advocates continue to promote transgenderism, encouraging children to question their biological gender. As a result, an increasing number of young individuals are now identifying as non-binary.
Furthermore, a recent study has provided compelling evidence that social influence plays a significant role in teenagers and young adults adopting a transgender identity.
Several governments have taken measures to curb the promotion of transgender messaging within their jurisdictions.
Governor DeSantis enacted the Parental Rights in Education bill last year, which includes anti-grooming legislation. The bill prohibits teachers from discussing sexuality and transgender ideology with children in kindergarten through third grade.
