WASHINGTON, D.C. – Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Rachel Levine is drawing intense criticism after a video surfaced on Twitter just after Christmas featuring the transgender Biden Administration official demanding that online “misinformation” questioning the health and safety of gender-affirming care for children be subjected to censorship.
The video was originally recorded on May 27 while Levine, 65, was speaking to the Federation of State Medical Boards in New Orleans, but only recently started to gain traction amongst conservatives online. In the video, Levine – a biological man who transitioned to female in 2011 – was speaking on combating health misinformation and how it needs to be addressed “beyond COVID-19.”
Levine would then go on to say that tech and social media companies should censor content that questions the “positive value” of gender-affirming care for children.

“So, I’d like to just talk briefly about another area of substantial misinformation that is directly impacting health equity in our nation, and that is the health equity of sexual and gender minorities,” Levine said. “There is substantial misinformation about gender-affirming care for transgender and gender diverse individuals.”
The Biden Admin official insisted that any opposing views or debate on the matter should be squashed.
“The positive value of gender-affirming care for youth and adults is not in scientific or medical dispute,” Levine said. “And we need to use our clinicians voice to collectively advocate for our tech companies to create a healthier, cleaner information environment.”
Levine drew a slew of criticism from advocates of free speech, as well as those who question the idea of actively encouraging young children undergoing hormonal and surgical gender transitions, with The American Conservative senior editor Rod Dreher tweeting, “When fascism comes to America, it will be under the guises of Health and Safety.”
Rep. Warren Davidson (R-OH) tweeted to his followers, “Admiral asserts ‘need’ for Ministry of Truth. To deny this: xy ≠ xx. It takes male & female to reproduce. Every egg is x. Sperm is y or x. At conception (save exceedingly rare cases), the baby human is xy (male) or xx (female). Nothing changes reality. Embrace the science.”
Conservative journalist Ian Miles Cheong tweeted, “Admiral Rachel Levine calls for tech companies to censor all gender related so-called ‘misinformation’ to protect the “health equity of sexual and gender minorities.”
“America is in trouble,” he added.
