The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has enacted a new gender policy that requires employees to use the preferred pronouns of fellow employees.
The new mandate requires employees to deny the biological reality of gender and conform to the radical left ideology that anyone can change their gender whenever they feel like it.
This new mandate makes sense, considering the Biden-appointed assistant secretary for health is a transgender woman, Rachel Levine or Richard Levine.
Fox News has more on the story:
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has rolled out a new gender pronoun policy that one Heritage Foundation expert and former HHS official says violates employee rights and will result in firings for “misgendering.”
“HHS and the federal government is requiring its employees to speak falsehoods,” Roger Severino, the Heritage Foundation’s vice president for domestic policy and the former head of civil rights at HHS during the Trump administration, told Fox News Digital.
Severino first broke the story on X, formerly Twitter, last week. He wrote that HHS “imposed a transgender pronoun mandate on its employees who will now be forced to deny biological realities with their own words or face firing” and he included a screenshot of an email sent to employees at the department.
Severino told Fox News Digital that the First Amendment protects federal employees from being required to speak falsehoods, being compelled to adopt a state-approved ideology, and requiring people to deny their own faith.
“These policies would require all of those things,” said Severino, a Harvard Law School graduate.
“All employees should be addressed [by] the names and pronouns they use to describe themselves,” the email to HHS employees stated as part of its push for “Gender Identity and Non-Discrimination Guidance” that it says protects “employee rights and protections related to gender identity.”
Severino says the push began with two White House executive orders, one in January 2021 and one in June 2022, that were framed as ways to combat “gender discrimination” on the base of “gender identity.”
Democrats are testing the waters with these policies.
They’re seeing how it works in a federal agency, and soon enough, they will try to force it in more places around the country.

Here’s the HHS Pronoun Mandate more clearly. This admin really is requiring pure ideological conformity. Let’s see how tolerant this admin will be of those who will seek an opt-out out of faith or compelled speech concerns. pic.twitter.com/yhlTZIkBxc

It’s a disgusting policy that spits in the face of truth.
The House of Representatives needs to do something to keep these government agencies in check.
Are all the people in the @WhiteHouse perverts, degenerates and/or criminals?

HHS employees will now be forced to deny science to appease gender dysphoria patients. Abolish the HHS

Don’t forget that a transgender person directly advises Biden on mental health-related issues.
The irony runs deep.
Our country is doomed in the hands of Democrats.
