Stop Trump’s Attack on Transgender Military Troops

Target: Charles Schumer, Leader of the United States Senate

Goal: Reject President Trump’s ban on transgender troops serving in the military.

President Trump is attempting to reintroduce a ban on transgender service in the military, after his previous attempt was rejected by the courts. The White House claims that the new proposal will be set in place and has been suggested by Secretary of Defense James Mattis, but the director of LBGT military advocacy group OutServe-SLDN reports that the SoD is merely Trump’s messenger.

“Anything the Pentagon is using to justify this announcement is just window dressing created for the express purpose to acceding to the president’s demand,” says director Peter Perkowski. While the transgender community has not been attacked as strongly as women’s or immigrant rights, the Trump administration has definitely tried to make things more difficult for them. This is not the first attempt to ban transgender troops from serving, and the administration has fought for discriminatory bathroom bills as well. This particular bill regards those with a history of gender dysphoria as many would those with a criminal history.

We cannot allow Trump to push his agenda on the military after they have fought so long and so hard for the rights of transgender troops. Sign this petition to demand the courts reject Trump’s new anti-transgender proposal.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Schumer,

President Trump is attempting to reintroduce a ban on transgender troops serving in the military, using the Department of Defense and Homeland Security as a smokescreen. According to the LGBT military advocacy group OutServe-SLDN, the Secretary of Defense is merely a messenger, despite the White House’s claims that he and the Department of Defense support this bill and will push it themselves.

You cannot allow this bill to pass. The transgender community may not be one of Trump’s major targets, but he and his administration have been making things very difficult for them since day one. This bill would essentially treat a history of gender dysphoria in the same way as a criminal background, forcing disclosure from those still not “out” and refusing them the right to serve. This is a cruel and invasive bill, and we cannot allow it to destroy all the progress made in the military regarding LGBT rights. You must reject this bill as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    How on earth would they know who is transgender?????? do the troops have to show their genitals?? carry an id card?? tatoo on their forehead??
    how does that moron think LGBT would be a detriment anyway?? I am SOOOOO damn tired of his bullying and bigotry!! Why is America taking his crap? Anyone who stands up against him gets fired. Just look at all the problems within his family, his cabinet, all his hires.
    I was done with him the day he was elected. What a not so funny joke!! Watch Pence too; he’s as bad.
