Jenna Ellis, an advisor for President Donald Trumps re-election campaign, referred to Pennsylvania health secretary Dr. Rachel Levine as this guy in a Tweet on Monday.
The Tweet states This guy is making decisions about your health while linking to a PennLive story about a news briefing in May where a Pittsburgh radio host repeatedly referred to Levine as sir. Levine objected to being misgendered, and the host later apologized, saying he was distracted.
The Tweet by Ellis prompted a response from the Washington, D.C.-based Human Rights Campaign, the nations largest LGBTQ rights organization.
Jenna Ellis is a bigot and Dr. Levine is a patriot - plain and simple. Dr. Levine illustrates character and patriotism while Ellis cannot even define those terms, the commission said.
The campaign further said, Despite claims of allyship, Donald Trump, Mike Pence and their staff have gone out of their way to dehumanize and attack transgender and non-binary people simply for existing. Trump and his allies have refused to acknowledge the epidemic of violence transgender and gender non-conforming people face, attempted to strip away their access to health care, and blocked these patriotic Americans from openly serving in the military.
Levine recently addressed various transphobic remarks and acts toward her which had been made in public. A member of her staff also said hateful remarks have been made to her privately, including some by people who have come to her home, which is now patrolled by state police.
Our children are watching. They are watching what we do. And they are watching how we act, and to all LGBTQ young people, it is okay to be you, and it is okay to stand up for your rights, and your freedoms, Levine said. My heart is full with a burning desire to help people, and my time is full with working towards protecting the public health of everyone in Pennsylvania from the impact of the global pandemic due to COVID-19, and I will stay laser focused on that goal.
According to her Twitter bio, Ellis is a constitutional law attorney and a senior legal adviser to Trumps campaign. She says in a pinned Tweet, If they try to cancel Christianity, if they try to force me to apologize or recant my Faith, I will not bend, I will not waver, I will not break.
The Human Rights Campaign said, Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Levine has steered Pennsylvania through this crisis leading efforts to reduce the spread of the virus and keep Pennsylvanians safe and healthy. Our nation has and should continue to laud the frontline workers and public servants confronting this pandemic, not attack them simply for living their truth.
Hate to break it to you, Dr. Dickless...
Doesn't matter how many hormones you inject,
doesn't matter how many appendages you cut off...
you will ALWAYS have a "Y" chromosome!
Please ping me with articles of interest.
FReepmail me to be added to the list.
Evidently a good reason to identify as gender-deranged is that after that no one is allowed to criticize you for anything, ever.

Isn’t the he-bitch a dead beat dad?

Stupid stuff, Jenna.
When you associate with Trump, ya keep your sh!t posting down and personal views PRIVATE or you damage your cause
Dr. Levine is a mental case, pure and simple...............
Am I a bad person if I think this is gut busting funny?
“Jenna Ellis is a bigot and Dr. Levine is a patriot - plain and simple. Dr. Levine illustrates character and patriotism while Ellis cannot even define those terms, the commission said.”
I can’t stand that guy. A quack in a dress
They want to coerce everyone to indulge the delusions of a few.
That so called health director is a pos,a disgrace, and only in that position to cause exactly this type of nonsense.
A stupid old phony in a dress.
Facts are acts and biology is biology and DNA is DNA, no matter how man mutilating operations you get and how much plastic surgery you have and how often you take hormones in amounts contrary to your body’s biological demands. You can pretend but no one else is required to.
We do not have to accept someone else’s mental health problem as a problem that should be entertained just because doing so is easier for the individual than defeating the problem.
Yes, identity dysphoria, whatever the manifestation, is the adoption of and giving into an errant mental obsession that rejects one’s actual, natural, biological identity in someway. It can be overcome with constant, sympathetic, professional counseling over some period of time, and more readily earlier than later.
It - any identity dysphoria - is nothing to “celebrate”.
