KANSAS CITY AGAINST PREZ TRUMP TRANSGENDER MILITARY BAN!!?!
Like it or not, most of the Internets, social media chatter and MSM reaction to Prez Trump's reinstatement of a Trans military ban has been overwhelmingly negative and Kansas City is no exception.
There might very well be a lot of people who support the ban but their support has been tacit and mostly quiet while the outrage has been put on blast . . .
Take a look at some of the top local reactions:
Statement from local activists:
"President Donald Trump announced transgender individuals will not be allowed to serve in the military. This is a significant shift in policy from the previous administration.
"As we are a community center (versus an advocacy organization), we can only recommend for you to express your viewpoint on this matter to your respective US Representative, Senator, or directly to the White House. Also, if you need to talk to someone about this policy change, please reach out and we can put you in touch with local counseling services.
"We are strong together."
From Kansas City's Top Ranking Congressman . . . A CNN cost analysis.
Finally, from your social media feed and the latest meme advocacy from all of your cool friends . . .
Of course, anony comments from the shadows support the Prez on this one as well . . . The most intriguing critical comparison I've read so far compares Trans people needing hormone therapy to diabetics who require insulin - Mostly precluded from service in the military. However, Sen. McCain called out the ban in no uncertain terms: “Any American who meets current medical and readiness standards should be allowed to continue serving.”
