Mike Pence & a hate group leader are behind Trump’s new trans military ban

Mar 26, 2018

By Alex Bollinger

Multiple sources are saying that Mike Pence – along with some anti-LGBTQ activists – wrote the report behind Donald Trump‘s new transgender military ban.

The White House released a plan on Friday night to purge transgender people from the military, which revoked the previous transgender military ban that was announced last year.

Accompanying the new plan was a memo signed by Defense Secretary James Mattis and a report from the Department of Defense.

Multiple sources told Slate that Mike Pence “played a leading role in the creation of this report,” along with anti-transgender activists Ryan Anderson and Tony Perkins.

Anderson works at the right wing Heritage Foundation and recently wrote When Harry Became Sally, a book that claims that being transgender is a mental illness based on the narratives of “ex-transgender” people. Perkins works for the Family Research Council, an SPLC designated hate group.

  • @OP – Anderson works at the right wing Heritage Foundation and recently wrote When Harry Became Sally, a book that claims that being transgender is a mental illness based on the narratives of “ex-transgender” people.

    Ah! The rantings of a know-it-all biology illiterate, who has zero understanding of embryological development!

    Next book on “ex-Thalidomide people” who have willed limbs into existence perhaps?

    Perkins works for the Family Research Council, an SPLC designated hate group.

    Who are so ignorant an bigoted, that they think sticking the word “research”into the title of their organisation, in some way confers scientific investigate capabilities! –
    Or – more likely a deceptive pathetic con, of pretending they have scientific investigate capabilities where only bigoted ignorance exists!

    A self-proclaimed “research council”, which cannot carry out a few minutes investigation on an on-line medical reference library, to establish basic facts about transgender and intersex conditions!
    Laughable – but dangerously delusional!
