The reaction of former Navy SEAL Team 6 member Kristin Beck to Donald Trump’s ban on transgender people serving in the military, could not have been simpler: “Let’s meet face to face and you tell me I’m not worthy.”

The 20-year military veteran, who became the first US Navy SEAL to come out as transgender in 2013, said a person’s gender identity made no difference to their ability to do the job.

“Being transgender doesn’t affect anyone else,” she told Business Insider. “We are liberty’s light. If you can’t defend that for everyone that’s an American citizen, that’s not right.”

1. Trump and those who support this would never dare.

Their specialty is picking on the political powerless, because one on one they would never DARE

2. Know where this came from?

Asshole saw some shit on Fox last night, and twitted out policy.

It's in the Wonkette article.


"The Washington Post reports that beyond a brief statement promising to “continue to work closely with the White House to address the new guidance provided by the Commander-in-Chief” and to “provide revised guidance to the Department in the near future,” the Pentagon is referring all questions to the White House. Translation: Donald Trump consulted with his dick and the television.

6. This type of ignorance and hate saddens me but it mostly pisses me off.

Good on, Kristin Beck!

I am so sick of the bullshit people have to go through simply to be recognized as human. It makes me so angry and in that anger I want the haters wiped off the face of the earth.

I don't care what motivated the orange blob of shit. The end result is pain - he is causing people pain and suffering. And he doesn't care.

7. Putin wants us to start a civil war here, he will roll in with his military

and take over if we do.

We are in a no win situation, but could have been avoided, but, you know, both parties are the same
