From Iron Knee at Political Irony:

Why did Donald Trump lash out against transgendered soldiers on Twitter? After all, during the presidential campaign he made it clear that he didn’t care one way or another about transgendered issues.

  1. And for a different and very intelligent perspective on this issue:

    For me it is not about “not having the LGBTQ community’s back. It is about effective military readiness instead of worrying about social engineering and PC quackery within our armed forces.

    Okay… I know I opened the floodgates with this one so let the hate begin…

  2. That is truly an interesting website. Thanks Trey.

    As for one not precluding the other, I would respectfully disagree and for many of the very reasons that the author of the article I referenced suggests. Most transgender folks are suffering from emotional upheaval. Where this may or may not be an issue in some support roles in the military, it absolutely detracts from the morale, unit cohesion, and mission focus of front line roles.

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.
