The Trans Ploy: Rachel Levine and the Left’s Reality Subversion Trap
A strange scene unfolded a few weeks ago on Capitol Hill. The setting was the confirmation hearing for the position of the US Assistant Secretary for Health.
The candidate put forth by the Biden administration was one Dr. Rachel Levine, who previously served as Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
The candidate, however, was not your run-of-the-mill physician. Levine is what these days is called a transgender “woman.” In other words, Levine is a biological male who says that he is a woman.
The hearing presented a sight that many people found unsettling. Those who tuned in would see Levine sitting in a citadel of American government dressed in a woman’s clothes wearing a wig and make-up. Anyone who looked more closely could immediately see that the person whose credentials were being examined by the senate committee was no woman, but a middle-aged, somewhat overweight man donning external paraphernalia of womanhood.
Dr. Rachel Levine who has been approved to be the US Assistant Secretary for Health. Dr. Levine is a biological male who says that he is now a woman.
Even a child could recognize the true sex of this person, because no amount of make-up, jewelry, female accessories or painted nails could cover up the obvious fact that Levine is a man. Born Richard Leland Levine, his maleness is encoded on the deepest level of his physical being. As is the case with all biological males, Levine’s cells carry genetic material that contains a pair of XY chromosomes which irreversibly establish his sex as male. As we have pointed out previously, it is not possible for anyone to traverse the biological gap that separates men and women.
Levine himself has, in fact, lived most of his life as a man. For many years he was married to a woman and in the course of his marriage he fathered two children.
And yet, contrary to the obvious physical reality before their eyes, the assembled senators at Levine’s confirmation hearing kept pretending that he is a woman.
By agreeing to behave in this manner, they had fallen into what could be called “The Left’s Reality-Inversion Trap.” Contrary to what some people may think, the left’s push of the transgender agenda is not some temporary embracing of a strange new fad but an essential expression of its modus operandi.
Because its ideology is based on lies, the left has to subvert people’s sense of reality in order to gain and maintain power. It is because of this that the left continually seeks to compel the public to agree to things that are not true. The further we go along this road, the greater the left’s prospects
