Rep Joe Kennedy Invites Trans Solider To State of the Union Address
45 is giving his first State of the Union address after not doing it last year, and Rep. Joe Kennedy III, who is giving the Democratic response to it, has invited trans soldier Staff Sgt Patricia King as his guest at the event.
Staff Sgt King is not only the first person to have her gender confirmation surgery paid for by the military, she is also there as a representative of the over 15,000 trans people currently serving in the armed forces.
She's also a reminder that Trump tried to ban people like her from openly serving in our military. simply because he was trying to appease the evangelical wing of his base.
She also points out the fallacy in the conservafool talking point about trans military service that people will be breaking down the doors trying to get in to do so.
