From Vixen Strangely at Strangely Blogged:

The thing of it is, transgender folks have been and are serving in the US military without causing any burden or disruption at all. They are patriots and dedicated, professional, trained soldiers and solid respectable and worthwhile human beings. And they have put their skin on the line in a way President Trump had avoided.

What Donald Trump might not even know is that trans people are twice as likely to serve in the armed forces as cis people. That their health concerns don’t drive up costs comparative to other soldiers. And that calling the presence of trans military members “disruptive” is nothing compared to the disruption of his rash decision.

We have a comment policy (sort of)

We often encounter extreme amounts of spam targeting more controversial posts. This tends to annoy and confuse Aunt Tildy. If your comment is accidentally omitted, please help her out by resubmitting, perhaps including a note telling us what happened. If you find comments closed, we can still put yours in its proper place. Just attach to another post with an explanation.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
