Rachel Levine – Deadnamed And Misgendered
Rachel Levine – Deadnamed And Misgendered
Dr. Rachel Levine, nominated by Joe Biden to be Assistant Secretary of Health, is being deadnamed and misgendered according to NBC News. In the Liberal Woke world, acknowledging that someone has a past and has changed is a transphobic sin.
Dr. Rachel Levine was born Richard Levine in Massachusetts in 1957. The doctor had a prestigious education and a good career, and in 2017 became Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Health. This is where Rachel was when the Wuhan Lung Rot/Covid-19 hit the nation. She came under fire for moving her mother out of the personal care facility where she lived to another facility when Pennsylvania senior facilities were hit hard by the Rona. Levine was unapologetic:
Dr. Levine was questioned about the move at her daily news conference on Tuesday. She noted that personal care homes are under the jurisdiction of the Department of Human Services, not under her oversight at the Department of Health.
“My mother requested, and my sister and I as her children complied, to move her to another location during the COVID-19 outbreak,” Dr. Levine said. “My mother is 95 years old, she is very intelligent, and more than competent to make her own decisions.”
Arrogant and elitist, Levine, if confirmed as Assistant Secretary of Health, will fit right in to the Biden/Harris Administration. Yes, the administration that issued a Executive order letting boys participate in girls athletics. So fair of them. You cannot question the wisdom or the ACLU will come after you.
And, woe betide anyone who deadnames or misgenders Levine. The trans lobby bullies will Twitter you upside the head:
I am not a member of the LGBTQ+ but I am a steadfast ally, and this is my stance as well. I will block every single person who even hints at that shit. pic.twitter.com/ervZdrsYG8

The talking hairdos at NBC even made a video warning us evil Conservatives against the deadnaming and misgendering practice.
In our new Totalitarian world, it is harassment to tell the truth. Here are some quotes from the NBC article related to the video above:
The far-right media outlet Breitbart deadnamed and misgendered Levine throughout an article announcing her nomination to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (deadnaming refers to the usage of a transgender person’s former name). In perhaps an attempt at irony, the article made several references to Levine’s past appeals to have people stop misgendering her and end their “intolerance and discrimination against LGBTQ individuals and specifically transgender individuals.”
“Deadnaming” is an awful term. A psychologically healthy person who truly believed that he/she was born a male but meant to be a woman would have dealt with that in therapy. For instance: “I was born a man. I believe I was born in the wrong body and have decided to present myself to the world as a woman. I honor and respect Richard for all he accomplished in his life and treasure the children I had from my marriage. On a go forward basis, I wish to be called Rachel.”
By calling using the previous name “deadnaming”, it sounds as if someone died. Do you see the difference?
Misgendering is not quite as bad, but it would be nice if Rachel Levine would admit, as a scientist, that she is still a biological man. We do not have the ability to change DNA, yet. Gender is a social construct. Biology tells us that there are two sexes.
Another paragraph from the NBC post:
“It’s really rich to see right-wing media figures pretend they’re so concerned with Dr. Levine’s record on Covid,” Brennan Suen, Media Matters’ LGBTQ program director, said. “These figures are acting like they’re taking Covid so seriously all of a sudden so they can attack Dr. Levine; at the same time, they’re relentlessly spreading misinformation about Covid, and about masks, and about gatherings.”
We really don’t give a fat rat’s backside what Media Matters thinks, but we take Covid-19 very seriously. It Dr. Levine is the right person for the job, then groovy. She can dress as a furry for all I care, if she is the best person for the job.
I will use the gender pronoun that fits what someone presents to me. I will not play pretend. A biological male dressed as woman is still a biological man in a woman’s dress. Live your best life. Love who you choose. DO NOT ask me to play pretend. We must not bow to the trans lobby bullies. The bullies who yell “SCIENCE” at us when it suits their purposes, but asks us to ignore reality when it doesn’t.
