Transgender Biden Health Official Blasted For Claiming Kids Can Go Through The ‘Wrong Puberty’
Rachel Levine, nominee for Assistant Secretary of Health and Human Services, testifies before her confirmation hearing of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions committee in Washington, DC, on February 25, 2021.

Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Assistant Secretary Rachel Levine faced backlash this week after claiming in an interview that children can go through “the wrong puberty.”

Levine, a man who claims he is a woman, made the remarks during an interview on a new ABC’s “Nightline” series “Identity Denied: Trans in America.”

“The treatment options for gender-affirming care for transgender youth really are evidence-based,” Levine claimed. “Adolescence is hard and puberty is hard. What if you’re going through the wrong puberty? What if you inside feel that you are female, but now you’re going through a male puberty?”

Levin faced widespread backlash for his false claim that a person can go through the “wrong puberty.”

Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro fired back at Levine, “What if you’re a mentally ill person given extraordinary power to say insane things.”

Republican presidential candidate and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said that Americans must “fight back” against “woke bureaucrats.”

“No one can go through ‘the wrong puberty,'” DeSantis said. “Woke bureaucrats are lying to our children and trying to destroy our country. We must fight back.”


Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) blasted Levine: “He has no business pushing these dangerous procedures—that have no basis in science—on kids.”

Daily Wire podcast host Matt Walsh tweeted, “Yes, what if you’re going through the wrong puberty?”

“Also, what if you have the wrong liver or the wrong left kneecap?” he added. “What if you have the wrong eye color? What if you have the wrong DNA? These and many other questions make sense if you’re a delusional schizophrenic.”
