Democrat President Joe Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has enforced a mandate that all employees must use “preferred pronouns.”
The HHS, led by Biden’s transgender “Admiral” Rachel Levine, ordered all employees to acknowledge the “gender identity” of their colleagues.
An internal HHS email outlining the “streamlined” policy was obtained and made public by the Heritage Foundation’s Roger Severino.
Titled “HHS Gender Non-Discrimination and Inclusion Policy,” the email begins: “Happy National Coming Out Day!”
The email then notes:
“When individuals bring their whole selves to work, all of us at HHS thrive.
“We want to ensure that HHS continues [to be a] welcoming, supportive environment where all employees feel safe and seen, including transgender and non-binary employees.
“Today, we are proud to announce a new HHS Gender Identity Non-Discrimination and Inclusion Guidance that outlines employees rights and protections related to gender identity.”
“This policy outlines the protections in place [when] employees undergo workplace changes, such as legal name changes, and provides workplace procedures safeguard[ing] gender all employees’ gender expressions,” the email adds.
The email then introduces the pronoun mandate.
It notes that new HHS rules mean that “all employees should be addressed by the names and pronouns they use to describe themselves, clarifying that employees can wear clothing and [use] restrooms in accordance with their gender identity.”
The email was accompanied by a video from Levine and also featured Andrea Palm, Deputy Secretary at HHS.
In the video, both explain why the policy is to be enforced.
Levine states that:
“The Gender Identity Non-Discrimination and Inclusion Guidance is very important, and all supervisors and managers are responsible for helping to ensure it is fully implemented across all opdivs and staffdivs.”
In other words, higher-ups must enforce it.
Earlier this year, Biden’s State Department attempted a similar policy enforcement.
However, the department then backtracked, saying it was a mistake.
