The left claims simply asking questions or quoting medical terms towards transgender makes you transphobic… AH NO!

Pennsylvania prepared Dr. Rachel Levine for this moment.
Not the moment when she would have to offer her medical expertise as former state health secretary and professor of pediatrics and psychiatry at Penn State University.
It was the moment when when she faced transphobia from a Republican lawmaker.
Levine is on track to become the first out transgender federal official to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate after being chosen last month by President Joe Biden to serve as the assistant secretary of health in his administration.
Levine also made history as the first transgender health secretary in Pennsylvania.
But Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, didn’t ask about her years of experience as Pennsylvania’s top health official who oversaw an opioid epidemic and coronavirus pandemic — two public health crises that continue to grip the entire nation.
Instead, he questioned her support of gender reassignment surgery and hormone therapy for minors, comparing transgender medicine to “genital mutilation.”
Rand asked Levine if she believes minors are capable of making the decision to change one’s sex.
“Transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field, with robust research and standards of care that have been developed,” Levine said.
She said, if confirmed, she looked forward to working with Rand on those standards of care.
The Kentucky senator pressed on, re-emphasizing the question was about minors and whether Levine supported the government intervening and giving rights to the child in opposition to the parents.
“If you have been around children, 14-year-olds cannot make this decision,” Paul said.
His view is shared by evangelical groups that have criticized Biden for choosing a transgender nominee.
Levine again said she would be happy to work with his office on these issues if she is confirmed.
