BINET USA STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT' TRUMP'S BAN ON TRANSGENDER SERVICE PEOPLE IN THE ARMED SERVICES
BiNet USA abhors and protests the outright bigotry, discrimination, and hostility of the new regressive action of barring transgender people from the patriotic act of serving in the armed services. This country has had the reputation of being among the most tolerant in the world, and has increasingly matured to protect the rights of ALL its residents to live freely and safely to pursue the blessings of liberty. In return, some among us wish to put our lives on the line to defend those freedoms and liberty. To have the government of our free nation reverse course is beyond insulting; it is counter to the values and needs of the nation to have such courageous people rejected outright for merely existing as their authentic selves. This shameful act will haunt this administration and nation. We hope this wrongheaded impetuous act will quickly be undone. Our nation deserves the best, and some of the best are trans members of the bi plus community and other trans people who mutually stand with us as allies.
