The LGBTQ community is celebrating a recent decision made by President-elect Joe Biden.
Breitbart reports that Biden has nominated a transgender individual for a major post in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Biden, on Tuesday, announced his selection of Dr. Rachel Levin to be the assistant secretary of health for the HHS.
Levin rose to prominence as the Secretary of Health for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, coming under fire for her handling of the state’s coronavirus crisis.
In that capacity, Levin has received much criticism for her support of heavy-handed policies, including lockdowns. She has also been criticized for a policy of sending “stable” coronavirus patients to nursing homes, which, of course, only helped to spread the virus among the most vulnerable part of the population.
How did Levin respond to such criticism? By accusing her critics of transphobia and by pushing transgender justice.
Biden, nonetheless, released a statement on Tuesday, saying that Levin “is a historic and deeply qualified choice to help lead our administration’s health efforts.” He added that she has “steady leadership and essential expertise.”
If Levin is confirmed, she will be the first transgender official confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
It’s not that surprising a pick
While campaigning, Biden did his best to disguise himself as a moderate. That, of course, was a necessary ploy to get votes. But, that’s all over with now. The disguise is coming off, and, as more and more of Biden’s plans get revealed, it is becoming more and more clear that Biden will push far-left policies, including transgender rights.
We know that Biden will reinstitute the so-called “Obama-Biden guidance,” which, for the purposes of Title IX, will allow transgender people to bring lawsuits alleging discrimination.
And, we know that Biden will sign the Equality Act, which will “codify into federal law transgender bathrooms, the elimination of women-only sports, forcing preferred pronoun use, and other similar special transgender privileges.”
All of this and Biden isn’t even in office yet. What will America look like in four years’ time?
