出现在 MSNBC 的 “安德里亚·米切尔报道,” 莱文, 谁是变性人, discussed an opinion piece that criticized states such as Florida for enacting limits on transgender treatments for youth. Levine emphasized that these laws, 随着 “significant harassment,” are what contribute to mental issues among trans youths.
“Trans youth are vulnerable. They suffer significant harassment and bullying, sometimes in schools or their community. They have more mental health issues, but there’s nothing inherent with being transgender or gender diverse which would predispose youth to depression or anxiety. It’s the harassment and bullying,” Levine said. “Now they are suffering politically motivated attacks through state actions against these vulnerable transgender youth. This is not based upon data. These actions are politically motivated.”
