The Trans Military Service Ban Is Unjust
Yesterday was the day that this malignant administration, egged on by Mike Pence, Tony Perkins and the white evilgelical wing of his party, banned transgender Americans from serving in the US military.
negatively affected by this ban are Black.
There are over 15,500 transgender people already serving in our military in all of its branches. It is a bull feces laden excuse that it would 'cost too much' to cover trans medical care. It costs $86 million annually to provide Viagra to the military. Trans medical care would only cost $8 million.
This is just once again Trump kowtowing to the white evilgelicals and pushing transphobia for his own short term political gain.
And as far as the other lie goes that transgender troops would affect the 'lethality' of our military, the Israeli Defense Forces, one of the best in the Middle East, haven't had that problem and have had transgender troops serving in the IDF for over a decade. Many of our NATO allies allow their transgender citizens to serve and have done so for decades
The trans military ban is destined to go the same way. But unfortunately a lot of people will be negatively affected by it before the unjust policy dies.
