WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – Biden’s transgender Assistant Health Secretary Richard “Rachel” Levine claims Americans must “empower” children to undergo “gender-affirmation” interventions, which typically include puberty blockers and “sex change” surgery.
On Monday, during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Levine responded to pushback against Biden administration policies that would allow males who identify as female to compete on female athletic teams and that promote irreversible “gender transitioning” of children.

“And so, we really want to base our treatment and affirm and to support and empower these youth, not to limit their participation activities in sports and even limit their ability to get gender-affirmation treatment in their state,” he stated.
Levine, himself a gender-confused individual who believes he is a woman, was reacting to laws banning gender-confused boys from girls’ sports.
Studies have repeatedly shown that gender-confused males massively outperform women in athletic competitions, regardless of attempts at a feminized appearance. A recent study published in Sports Medicine found that a year of transgender hormone drugs results in “very modest changes” in the inherent strength advantages of men.
Republican have recently proposed several bills to protect children from irreversible gender transition operations and drugs. Dr. Quentin Van Meter, president of the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds), told LifeSiteNews that giving hormone blockers to children with gender dysphoria is a form of child abuse.
There are countless reasons to conclude modern sex-education is less about critical thinking and more about indoctrinating and sexualizing children at as young an age as possible.
Consider these 3 questions:
- Why are politicians around the world pushing radical transgender theories on children as young as 5?
- Why is the World Health Organization calling for 4 year-olds to be taught how to masturbate?
- Why are children in schools being shown graphic images of sex and told anything goes so long as consent is established, if not to encourage our sons and daughters to become sexually active?
A sane society would try to shield impressionable children from becoming sexualized, and encourage them not to watch pornography, take puberty blockers or mutilate their genitalia, but our schools increasingly promote these behaviors.
In reality, the media, most politicians, and many education chiefs are obliterating a parent's ability to protect their child's innocence and identity.
We must realize: these elites want children to have THEIR values, not YOURS. SIGN THE PLEDGE!
The results of this explicit, inappropriate sex-saturated culture and education have been startling: there have never been more children claiming to be transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual, nor have we ever seen such high levels of sexual assaults by minors.

This nut could end up being your child’s teacher and you wouldn’t even find out the craziness they’re teaching until your kid tells you about it. If you aren’t disturbed after watching this, you’re a lunatic. School choice is the civil rights issue of our generation. pic.twitter.com/y1V3Rotx9k— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) August 17, 2021
Countless politicians, media personalities and education chiefs are too busy promoting woke trends to realize that sexualizing minors amounts to grooming, and has devastating consequences in many cases.
Children whose inhibitions are broken down risk addiction to pornography, teenage pregnancy, STDs, gender dysphoria, online shaming, and a whole host of other negative outcomes.
Parents, not the government, must be in control of what their child is taught about sex.
Just listen to the type of materials public schools in the U.S. are promoting:
That's why we are asking you to sign the Parents' Pledge that you will pull your children out of sex-education classes if your school chooses to sexualize your child.
The Parents' Pledge is our best chance of winning back our children's schools before they're entirely lost to radical sex-obsessed teachers' unions who are foisting these curricula on teachers.
Do you really want other adults deciding what your child is exposed to? Of course not.
Please share this brand new grassroots Parents' Pledge with like-minded parents and join a growing movement of mothers and fathers who are wise to the threat of their child being led into sexual activity.
“I think the steps that have been proposed in terms of making this an offense and considering it to be medically unethical should be pressed to the max,” Van Meter said. “It should be looked at in terms of licensure of physicians who do this.”
No drugs have ever been approved for gender dysphoria or evaluated in long-term clinical studies with gender-confused minors. But dozens of gender clinics and major health systems have nevertheless ramped up prescriptions of puberty blockers to children in recent years to halt their natural puberty and affirm their so-called “transgender identities.”
Up to around 100 percent of boys and 90 percent of girls with gender dysphoria come to accept their biological sex as they reach adulthood, according to the American Psychiatric Association. Virtually all those started on puberty blockers, later take cross-sex hormones. These drugs sterilize users and typically lead to devastating transgender surgeries.
