Actor Kevin Sorbo invoked gender change and firearms into an argument about what is considered “mature enough.”
He tweeted, “If an 18-year-old isn’t ‘mature enough’ to own a firearm, then maybe 5-year-olds aren’t mature enough to change their gender.”

Earlier this week, Sorbo posted another tweet on children changing their gender.
“‘Can I drive your car.’ No you’re 5 ‘Can I have a beer?’ No you’re 5 ‘Can I have a cigarette?’ No you’re 5 ‘Can I take hormones and change my gender?’ Of course! You know what’s best,” Sorbo tweeted.

Sorbo’s tweets come as Republicans continue to push back against gender-affirming care for children.
Alabama recently passed a law “to prohibit the performance of a medical procedure or the prescription of medication, upon or to a minor child, that is intended to alter the minor child’s gender or delay puberty.”
The Department of Justice then hit the state with a lawsuit.
The department said the measure “denies necessary medical care to children based solely on who they are, and that threatens criminal prosecution and jail time to doctors, parents, and anyone else who provides or ‘causes’ that care.”
The department explained, “The United States’ complaint alleges that the new law’s felony ban on providing certain medically necessary care to transgender minors violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. The department is also asking the court to issue an immediate order to prevent the law from going into effect.”
