Left-wing CNN Democrat Chris Cuomo took to Twitter on Thursday to call for "tolerance" from 12-year-old girls and other minors with respect to mentally ill males suffering from gender dysphoria.
Cuomo seems to subscribe to the narrative that gender is a social construct and disconnected from biological realities. Given the general pliability of some social constructs over time, leftists believe that people can choose their gender.
Twitter activity was high around Cuomo's tweet:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), Chris Cuomo's brother, framed himself as a defender of marginalized transgender persons and denounced "hate and bigotry:"
The tweet comes during a news cycle focused on President Donald Trump's rescinding of an Obama era regulation mandating public schools open all sex-specific bathrooms to children of the opposite sex provided they claim to be transgender. Left-wing and Democrat-aligned news media outlets described the regulation as a "protection" for transgender persons.
Cuomo presents himself as an objective and non-partisan news media figure.
CNN describes itself in its marketing materials as "The Most Trusted Name In News." It also presents itself as an objective and non-partisan news outlet.
