The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has introduced a new gender pronoun policy, which Roger Severino, a former HHS official, believes violates employee rights and could lead to firings for “misgendering.”
The policy requires employees to use names and pronouns that individuals use to describe themselves, and it aims to protect employee rights and foster discrimination-free workplaces.
Severino argues that the policy forces employees to speak falsehoods and go against their faith, potentially impacting morale and production. (Trending: Meet The Ultra Rich Megadonors Behind Democrats)
“These policies would require all of those things,” said Severino.

“HHS and the federal government is requiring its employees to speak falsehoods,” Severino stated.
The Harvard graduate posted that HHS “imposed a transgender pronoun mandate on its employees who will now be forced to deny biological realities with their own words or face firing.”
He also suggests that employees have legal recourse against such policies and the right to dissent.
Moreover, he highlighted concerns about the impact of these policies on employees’ faith and their ability to express dissent.
“Men who identify as female have the right to get naked in front of female colleagues in the locker room,” Severino pressed.
“It used to be that if you allowed a man to get naked in front of a woman in the workplace that is instantly a violation of civil rights law,” he went on.
“That’s the quintessential hostile work environment, subjecting women to that. Now, the policy says to the women who may be uncomfortable with that situation, they’re the ones who have to leave.”
“Governments cannot compel speech and certainly cannot compel false speech,” he added, referring to West Virginia vs. Barnette.
“We protect the right of political dissent and here it’s a pledge of allegiance to the Rainbow flag that’s been essentially required.”
“They are faced with a horrible dilemma,” Severino said of employees with conflicting faith. “Do they hope that they can fly under the radar and try to avoid the issue and keep a low profile and perhaps hide their faith so they can keep their job, or do they stand up and say this policy is wrong and fight for their rights? And then see a gigantic target on their back after that.”
