In fact, John Kerry has defended it saying: “There is nothing sanctimonious in this,” emphasizing the need for “humility” in the face of the U.S.’ own racial inequality.
Stalin and Hitler used to make the same point.
From the Daily Caller:
A report issued Thursday by the Department of State repeatedly refers to sex reassignment surgery in Iran as “gender-confirmation surgery.”
Speaking at the release of the State Department’s annual human rights report, Secretary of State John Kerry said of the designation that “There is nothing sanctimonious in this,” emphasizing the need for “humility” in the face of the U.S.’ own racial inequality. The State Department did not respond to a request for clarification by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Iran has a well-documented record of coercing gay and lesbian people into having the gender reassignment surgery, that is, disrupting rather than “confirming” the gender identity of hundreds per year. Since homosexuality can be punishable by death in Iran, known homosexual men tend to accept the government-subsidized surgery to become women, and vice versa.This is state-forced mutilation that Kerry defends. He is the epitome of the rich, white, straight patrician who loves playing one group against the other to gain, retain and expand his power.
If John Kerry is on your side, watch your back.
By the way, Kerry said nothing about gay marriage in 2004. Come to think of it, Obama was silent as well in 2008.
