It seems that on one hand, the state of Wisconsin purports – via existing legislation – to protect children from body modifications that only serve a cosmetic purpose, but on the other hand openly allow children to undergo severe surgical cosmetic body modifications that pose a litany of issues for people later on in their lives.
This, of course, is in relation to Wisconsin having outlawed the tattooing of minors (regardless of parental consent) whilst also allowing girls who are under the age of 18 to undergo double mastectomies as a cosmetic surgery to appear more masculine.
According to Wisconsin’s laws falling under crimes against children, section 948.70(2) reads, “any person who tattoos or offers to tattoo a child is subject to a Class D forfeiture,” which means someone caught tattooing a child can be fined up to $200.
Albeit not the harshest punishment in the proverbial book, but the law was clearly established as a means to dissuade the tattooing of children considering a child’s inability to mentally assess the ramifications of the near-permanent nature (short of laser removal procedures) of a tattoo.
In short, a law crafted in the interest of protecting children from undergoing a body modification that, as they grow older, they may grow to regret.
But for reasons beyond comprehension, the very same state allows for children – specifically young girls – to have their breasts completely removed solely to placate the whims of a child who wants to appear different (or perhaps a child suffering from a parent afflicted by Munchausen syndrome by proxy).
What is all the more unsettling in this matter is that earlier in 2022, Republican State Senator Andre Jacque introduced a bill meant to prohibit any “physician and health care providers from providing any gender transition procedure to an individual under 18 years of age,” but the bill was shot down this past March.
So for the sake of context, a person in Wisconsin under the age of 18 can’t get a tattoo, they can’t legally consent to sex, they can’t possess tobacco or nicotine-vaping products, and persons under the age of 21 can’t even pick up a six-pack of beer – but girls under the age of 18 can have their breasts completely chopped off, destroying a pivotal part of a person’s anatomical makeup that’ll render lifelong consequences.
The irony in all this is that if, for instance, a 15 or 16-year-old consumed a few beers out of the purview of their parents or other prying eyes (in an ostensibly safe environment, of course) or snuck a cigarette at some point or another, the propensity for lifelong ramifications of said isolated acts are arguably razor-thin.
Basically, no teen has spontaneously conjured cirrhosis of the liver after a few drinks or manifested lung cancer from that singular pack of cigarettes discretely tucked away somewhere in their room.
Yet the Wisconsin legislature bore enough common sense to observe these acts as being potentially harmful for children and opted to enact legislation to prohibit the enabling of minors engaging in such behaviors.
In Wisconsin law, it doesn’t matter how much a minor ardently protests in favor of them being able to consume alcohol, buy a pack of smokes, or to get whatever tattoo they want emblazoned on their body – all of the aforementioned is 100% illegal in the interest of not intentionally having various harms befall a child.
However, if a child in Wisconsin drums up enough of a protest in favor of them having their entire breasts removed to assuage a purported form of dysphoria – a procedure that will result in the person never being able to breastfeed their child when they become a mother – then it’s suddenly game-on.
So while Wisconsin will gleefully allow for the anatomical mutilation of children under the tenets promoted via radical gender theory, at least parents can sleep safe knowing their minor children won’t be able to get a dumb tattoo.
