Transgender veteran feels like 'political pawn' after Trump's military ban

Transgender veteran feels like 'political pawn' after Trump's military ban

"The Department of Defense is awaiting formal guidance from the White House as a follow-up to the commander-in-chief's announcement on military service by transgender personnel", Pentagon spokesman Dana White said in a statement July 27.

A transgender woman who identified herself only as Layla told the crowd she's exhausted of being told who she can or cannot be, and asked for others in the LGBT community to support trans people as they fight for respect.

"Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and can not be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail", he added.

Estimates of the number of transgender people already serving range from 1,300 to 15,000. Philadelphia transgender attorney Henry Sias told Fox News Radio, he represents a transgender army veteran, "he was pretty stunned, and I think a lot of people are pretty stunned because people in the military have been open for a year at this point". Implementation of the policy, which was still under final review, was delayed by Secretary of Defense James Mattis last month.

"Carter spoke out on Wednesday against President Trump's transgender ban in a statement to CBS Evening News".

He also went on to say: "I don't think we should be discriminating against anyone".

The reality star responded to a tweet Trump had posted in 2016 promising the LGBT community he would fight for them.

The 'American Horror Story: Cult' Teaser Is Wall-To-Wall Scary Clowns
If Peters and Paulson are in love this season, we are totally here for it and it seems like Paulson shares our sentiments. It can be recalled that season 6's official title and theme was not revealed until its premiere.

Such is the case for Sage Fox, a transgender veteran and activist from Sacramento, who said she was "devastated" by Trump's announcement Wednesday.

The Trump tweets began shortly before 9 a.m., sandwiched between tweets in which he criticized Sen.

But Rep. Duncan Hunter, who with Cheney serves on the House Armed Services Committee, said that "the president's decision was the absolute right decision" and that "it's about time that a decision is made to restore the warrior culture and allow the USA military to get back to business".

Political satire will fix us with its love, as will Lady Gaga.

"They fight for us, and we'll fight for them", she said. "There are existing military rules and regulations that allow transgender people to serve and even the commander-in-chief can not change those rules and regulations via Twitter". "The governor respects the ability of generals and military leaders to decide the force America needs".

Zabel mentions that studies on LGBT people's efficacy in the military going back as far as the 1940s have disproved the misconception that they would be a distraction or add additional risk to their units. She has a medallion from the state that recognizes her service.
