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.”

Story at a glance

  • * Twitter has suspended the official account of U.S. Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) after the congressman misgendered the first openly transgender four-star military officer.
  • “The title of first female four-star officer was taken by a man,” a screenshot of Banks’ tweet reads, referring to Health and Human Services official, Dr. Rachel Levine.
  • Banks’ account was suspended by the social media giant Saturday for violating Twitter’s hateful conduct policy, which states a person may not promote violence, threaten or harass other users due to their gender identity.



*I Really Hate To Break the news to Mr. Barnes but Dr. Levine never served One Single Day in the military.
