'Unlawful hostile work environment': HHS employees forced to use preferred pronouns, deny biological sex under new policy

Department of Health and Human Services employees are being forced to address individuals by their preferred pronouns instead of their biological sex due to a new policy introduced this month.

Roger Severino, the vice president of domestic policy at the Heritage Foundation and former director for the HHS Office for Civil Rights, shared earlier this month that the agency initiated a "transgender pronoun mandate," requiring employees to "deny biological realities with their own words or face firing," he wrote on X.

"Those with faith objections should immediately request religious accommodation and prepare to fight for your rights," he added.
