The Biden administration wants to censor people who oppose gender transitions for children

The next step in “misinformation” censorship is going to come with government officials attempting to silence any debate about mutilating children in the name of transgenderism.

This is the biggest takeaway from the recently leaked video of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Rachel Levine. Levine was speaking about “misinformation” and “gender-affirming care” in a May address to the Federation of State Medical Boards in New Orleans. In her comments, Levine said that “the positive value of gender-affirming care for youth and adults is not in scientific or medical dispute” and that anyone questioning it is “dangerous to the public health.”


Levine then said that “we need to use our clinician’s voice to collectively advocate for our tech companies to create a healthier, cleaner information environment.” Translated to normal English, he was calling for “experts” to pressure Big Tech companies to censor people who think it is unwise to permanently mutilate children with “gender-affirming healthcare.”

We already know that “misinformation” is the go-to excuse for Democratic politicians to dismiss their losses and for establishment media to dismiss stories they don’t want to cover. We also know now, thanks to reporting from journalist David Zweig, that the Biden administration pressured Twitter to punish users who posted “misinformation” about COVID-19.

What was “misinformation” about COVID-19? Whatever the Biden administration decided. No matter how accurate the information was, if the Biden administration wanted it censored, it was misinformation.

The same standard has already been applied to transgenderism, as the Biden administration tries to force the country to accept doctors permanently mutilating children with hormone alterations and surgeries. Biden thinks it is morally wrong that some states are preventing doctors from pushing transgenderism onto children, despite the fact that there is no evidence it helps gender-confused children and far more evidence that it will cause permanent health and psychological issues.


If the Biden administration set out to have Big Tech companies censor social media over COVID-19, there is no doubt they will be doing the same for objections to mutilating children if they haven’t been doing so already. Biden has already made it clear that it is his stance, and Levine’s comments show that there is no doubt.

“Misinformation” is a political term, and it is used by Democrats to agitate for more censorship. It was true during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it is going to be true for the coming decades as the social contagion of transgenderism rages on and the regrets of those forced down this path become clearer and louder.
