Trump's Trans Military Obsession

The Trump Administration has requested a writ of certiorari from the U.S. Supreme Court in cases challenging the president's ban on transgender troops. The cases are currently before lower federal courts that are still deciding on several motions but the Trump administration wants to intervene now & implement the transgender military ban. So what could have possibly caused such an appalling maneuver by this homophobic & transphobic administration just days after the global recognition of Transgender Day of Remembrance & recent release of “TransMilitary” the groundbreaking & award-winning documentary that chronicles the lives of four transgender service members honorably protecting America on Logo TV? Jennifer Levi, GLAD Transgender Rights Project Director stated, “There is no urgency here & no reason for the Court to weigh in at this juncture. The injunctions preserve the status quo of the open service policy that was thoroughly vetted by the military itself & has been in place now for more than two years. This is simply one more attempt by a reckless Trump administration to push through a discriminatory policy. The policy flies in the face of military research & dozens of top military experts.” Sarah McBride HRC National Press Secretary concluded, "The Trump-Pence administration's desperate desire to discriminate against transgender service members knows no bounds. The administration is in a rush because they know that every day that transgender people continue to enlist & serve with distinction is another day that the courts & the public see this irrational policy for what it is. There is simply no reason to circumvent the traditional judicial process in pursuit of banning qualified, patriotic Americans from serving their country.”
