Today’s culture is increasingly insistent that transgender individuals are authentic representatives of whichever gender they choose to present to the public.
Ignoring obvious biological differences, many politicians and activists insist that there is no discernible distinction between men who choose to live as women and those who were born female.
This narrative continues to play out in the realm of athletics, where prominent conservatives are taking action to prevent biological males from competing against girls and women. A growing number of female athletes are also speaking out against efforts to force them to compete against transgender individuals.
Meanwhile, proponents of the trans agenda continue efforts to indoctrinate the next generation as early as possible — including in the pages of children’s books.
One recent example involves the book “She Persisted: Rachel Levine,” which includes an image of the Biden administration’s transgender U.S. Department of Health and Human Services assistant secretary and an in-depth exploration of Levine’s path to becoming the first Senate-confirmed transgender government official.
Rachel Levine is set to be celebrated in an upcoming installment of a children’s book series about women.
There are 165,000,000 women in the United States, and they chose to write about a man who pretends to be a woman.

A description of the book, which includes an introduction by 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, gushes that Levin “was born with a body body, but on the inside, in her mind and in her heart, she was a girl,” claiming that the “first time that Rachel knew for sure that she was a trans girl was when she was five years old.”
Using Levine’s life experiences as an inspiration for young children, the book lists all of Levine’s supposedly praiseworthy achievements, including the biologically inaccurate proclamation that Levin was “the first female four-star admiral in the commissioned corps.”
A glowing review of the book on Amazon claims that it is a “perfect choice for kids who love learning and teachers who want to bring inspiring women into their curriculum.”
Of course, Levine is not the only gender-bending official the Biden administration has elevated as evidence of its focus on diversity.
Sam Brinton, who identifies as “non-binary” was a senior official in the Department of Energy until mounting allegations of theft at multiple airports led to Brinton’s ouster.
As U.S. Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) said in response to that situation: “The reported details of Sam Brinton’s thievery are bizarre and disturbing. Americans deserve transparency about who and what their taxpayer dollars are funding.”
