Twitter suspends Rep. Banks’ account for misgendering trans health official

Rep. Jim Banks’ official Twitter account was suspended after he referred to Assistant Health Secretary Rachel Levine — the first openly transgender four-star officer in the US’s eight uniformed services — as a “man.”

The Republican lawmaker from Indiana claimed he was “posting a statement of fact” when he tweeted about Levine, the same day she was ceremonially sworn in as an admiral in the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.

“Calling someone that was born and lived as a man for 54 years the first ‘female’ four-star officer is an insult to every little girl who dreams of breaking glass ceilings one day,” Banks said in a follow-up tweet Tuesday.
