Twitter flexed its power of censorship on Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton after he issued a short tweet regarding the biology of Admiral Rachel Levine, Assistant Secretary for Health in the US Department of Health and Human Services.
The tweet came in response to Levine being named by USA Today as one of its “Women of the Year.” Paxton pointed out what many have felt about Levine, saying simply “Rachel Levine is a man.”
This resulted in Twitter flagging the tweet as “hate speech” that violated its terms of service, placing a notice on the tweet stating, “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about hateful conduct.” Strangely though, Twitter chose to leave it up anyway, saying “Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.”

Levine, who was born a male and has a Y chromosome, has been trotted out by the administration of President Joe Biden in order to demonstrate its commitment to trans ideology, and many on the left jumped onto the tweet to denounce Paxton as a “bigot,” such as Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL):
In case anyone still needs this cleared up:
Admiral Rachel L. Levine, MD is a woman.
Ken Paxton is a transphobic bigot and bully. pic.twitter.com/YtIgSq9osT

Keith Olbermann also came in to encourage people to mass report the tweet as well:
btw Ken Paxton is NOT a man.

Others dutifully chimed in with more of the same:
Ken, Rachel Levine is a woman – a strong, intelligent, beautiful woman who is committed to serving her country. And even at that, she’s still more a man than you’ll ever be. https://t.co/WEBXw1PfNy

Some took a more ironic approach:
If we’re going to nominate Rachel Levine for woman of the year I would like to nominate Rachel Dolezal for black woman of the year.

USA Today has named Rachel Levine one of their “Women of the Year.”

Twitter has recently come under fire for its odd choices in censorship, particularly coming on the heels of The New York Times admitting the Hunter Biden laptop scandal was legitimate after Twitter suspended the New York Post’s account for publishing the story in 2020.
