Wednesday, July 25, 2017, will go down as the day the Trump Administration declared all-out war against the LGBTQ+ communities.
It started with a morning twitter from the Commander-in-Chief declaring that, “the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.”
Trump, claimed that he came to this decision “after consultation with my Generals and military experts,” and cited the “tremendous medical cost and disruption that transgender in the military will entail.”
He ends his three-tweet directive with, “Thank You,” as if we should be grateful for this anti-LGBTQ+ liar, that the President lied to all Americans when he said he’d “do everything in my power to protect our LGBT citizens,” just did to our trans brothers and sisters.
This new transgender directive caught both the Pentagon and Congress by surprise, with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, declaring that no changes will be made to the status of transgender service personnel until Trump issues a written directive on his new transgender policy. The military leadership’s response is bold as they stand up to Trump’s whim, and declared support for their transgender members.
It should be noted that in 2016 Rand was commissioned to do a study for the Department of Defense which estimated a range of between 1,320 and 6,630 transgender personnel actively serving, and anywhere from 830 to 4,160 serving in the reserves.
So, by 8:00 AM, Wednesday, Trump had declared war on the trans community for no reason except to placate the far right of his base.
But the Wednesday assault on our community continued, this time by the Justice Department, in a friend of the court brief to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan, where the Trump administration told a U.S. appeals court that federal law does not ban discrimination against gay, lesbian, and bisexual employees.
The U.S. Department of Justice told the court that Congress never intended Title VII, which bans sex discrimination in the workplace, to apply to gay, lesbian, and bisexual workers.
According to Reuters on Wednesday, the Justice Department also “said employers engage in sex discrimination only when they treat male and female workers differently. Objecting to homosexuality does not depend on sex, the department said, but on moral or religious beliefs.”
“Of course, if an employer fired only gay men but not gay women (or vice versa), that would be prohibited by Title VII,” the department wrote, “but precisely because it would be discrimination based on sex, not sexual orientation.”
On June 14, 2016, Trump tweeted, “Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs.”
People believed him, I never did! Trump is a liar, and a fraud of a President. He has shown his true colors and any self-respecting LGBTQ+ person must stand in opposition to Trump and his anti-LGBTQ Administration. Let the resistance grow!
