Minnesota Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan is facing backlash on social media after a clip surfaced of her advocating for transgender rights, saying parents must “believe” their children when they “tell us who they are.”

“Because let’s be clear, this is life-affirming and life-saving health care,” Flanagan, a Democrat, said during a press conference last week.

“When our children tell us who they are, it is our job as grown-ups to listen and to believe them,” she added. “That’s what it means to be a good parent.”

Flanagan made the comments after Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz signed an executive order making Minnesota a “trans refuge state” for transgender people, including minors, seeking transition-related health care, as a growing number of state have moved to restrict it. (Excerpt from Fox News.)
