According to this Buzzfeed article, despite what everyone is saying, there’s no new policy set in stone. What people are flipping out over – and rightfully so – is the potential content of a policy that could appear.
When a federal judge in Seattle holds a hearing Tuesday over President Donald Trump’s transgender military ban, she will face an odd question: Does the Trump administration even have a policy banning transgender troops right now?
No, not in writing. Not anywhere, technically.
With all due respect to any existing transgender military officers, why would you want to defend the citizens of a country that hates your existence? I respect familial tradition, etc., but is it really worth it if your Commander in Chief doesn’t even want you “soiling” his military? Fuck ’em all. It’s disgraceful that he or anyone else would have an issue with a transgender woman or man defending their freedoms. They certainly aren’t out there on the battle lines. Historically, a king would be out there on the battlefield with his soldiers fighting side-by-side. It’s a shame that no longer happens. Maybe those motherfuckers would feel differently about war.
President Trump said he will ban transgender people from serving in the military in any capacity, a reversal of the Obama administration decision that would have allowed them to serve, he announced on social media on Wednesday.
Citing the need to focus on victory, Trump said that the military cannot accept the burden of higher medical costs and “disruption” that transgender troops would require.
It’s really sad that politicians can’t seem to let go of the lime light even when their constituents have clearly told them to go away. I’m quite sure the perceived Gay Agenda would go away if you’d only take YOUR religion our of your politics.
Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said the State Department has been pushing an “evil” gay agenda on other countries. And that, she added, could come to an end during Donald Trump’s presidency.
Speaking to Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on his “Washington Watch” radio show last week, Bachmann claimed the United States under President Barack Obama had used government money to push a pro-LGBTQ agenda.
“We’ve seen such evil come out of our State Department, unfortunately, where financial incentives are withheld from countries unless they advance, for instance, the gay agenda,” Bachmann said in comments posted online by Right Wing Watch.
True Confession: after typing that headline, the next thing that came to mind was: ‘Texas has a whorehouse in it!’ (it’s from Best Little Whorehouse in Texas if you’re unfamiliar).
Anyway, this is a road we’ve been down before, though no one in Texas has acknowledged that the same bill in NC is on the way out. I suppose the Texas Right expects everyone to carry around their birth certificates to prove which bathroom we should be entering? Those Christians need to quit bothering any of us regarding our bodily functions.
Texas could soon follow in the footsteps of Indiana and North Carolina and pass its own “bathroom bill” in the upcoming legislative session. Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has made passage of such a bill, which could require transgender Texans to use the restroom which corresponds to the gender on their birth certificate, a priority.
The proposal threatens to split the Texas Republican Party, which controls all three branches of government in Austin. Proponents include the lieutenant governor and the Senate he leads, while the Texas House of Representatives is more sympathetic to the state’s business community. The politically powerful chamber of commerce and the Texas Association of Business both strongly oppose any bathroom bill.
How the hell did this happen? This is sickening that the University of Wisconsin knowingly allowed this to happen.
University ignored warnings about far-right speaker, leaving him free to bully trans student on stage.
A university ignored multiple warnings about a speaker’s extreme views and history of abusive behaviour – leaving him free to single out a trans student and bully them on-stage.
Far-right internet troll Milo Yiannopoulos has seen his media profile rise thanks to attention-grabbing bigoted comments and support of Donald Trump, whom he refers to as ‘daddy’.
