Surge Summary: A prominent Biden Administration figure – who happens himself to be a “transgender female” – suggests LGBTQ-friendly officials, school staff, adults, etc. might need to replace parents in the shaping of young people facing with those issues.

“The views of Assistant Secretary for Health Richard Levine, who calls himself ‘Rachel,’ are typical of the trans movement’s assault on parents,” said Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.
While calling a Florida parental rights law a “gag rule,” Levine said it would be wonderful if parents of gender-confused children could be “replaced” as decision-makers by “a teacher, guidance counselor, or some other coach or another school personnel.”
Morse responded: “Richard Levine’s proposal that more-affirming, gay-friendly adults take over the parental role is the Sexual State at work. No normal person would accept the idea that a minor child should be allowed to try to change the sex of his or her body. So, the Sexual State steps in and replaces the parents with someone more friendly to the State’s truly radical Sexual Revolutionary agenda.”
The Florida law Levine finds objectionable prohibits discussion of so-called sexual orientation and gender identity with children through the third grade. It also requires school personnel to notify parents before discussing services that involve “gender-transitioning.”
“Jamie Reed is the type of adult Levine would definitely not want these children to talk to,” Morse said. “Reed, who worked for four years at the Washington University Transgender Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, calls transitioning children ‘morally and medically appalling.’”
Reed, who describes herself as a “queer progressive,” said it can take as little as a note from a psychologist to get the transitioning process started. She also said children usually aren’t warned of the long-term effects of hormone “treatment,” which can include sterility and diabetes.
“That’s why people like Levine are anxious to keep parents, and ultimately children, in the dark,” Morse said. “In many public schools, a nurse can’t give a child an aspirin without parental consent. But Levine would like teachers to sell gender transitioning to vulnerable children without parents knowing about it.”
