A Critique of Biden Cabinet Pick Rachel Levine and Cross-Sex Hormone Treatment for Children


During the recent Senate Confirmations Hearings for President Joe Biden’s cabinet picks, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul (R) made headlines for his challenge to Biden’s nominee for Assistant Secretary of Health, Dr. Rachel Levine. Senator Paul compared child puberty blockers and cross-sex hormone treatment for young children as unethical and immoral, and categorized transgender surgery and therapy for minors to “genital mutilation.”

Dr. Paul, a former ophthalmologist, told Dr. Levine (a biological male and self-identified trans woman) that “genital mutilation is considered particularly egregious because … it is nearly always carried out on minors and is a violation of the rights of children.”

“For most of our history, we have believed that minors don’t have full rights and that parents need to be involved,” Paul said. “We should be outraged that someone’s talking to a 3-year-old about changing their sex.”

When Paul asked whether Levine agreed that these practices should be prescribed for children, Levine responded, “Transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field with robust research and standards of care that have been developed.”

Political pundit and talk show host Steven Crowder critiques Levine’s position on this controversial issue and asks whether western society is drifting into dangerous territory by normalizing such extreme medical practices. Watch:
