Your Ignorance Is Amazing!

Here is a state senator whose obliviousness is outstanding and he is going to be the Secretary of the Army.
Trump’s Expected Pick To Lead The Army Believes Being Transgender Is A Disease
It isn’t.

The LGBTQ community is increasingly concerned whether President Donald Trump’s expected pick for Army secretary would be able to lead and represent an Army that’s growing more diverse.

Tennessee state Sen. Mark Green (R), the president’s anticipated nominee, spoke to the Chattanooga Tea Party in September, telling a questioner that he still believes being transgender is a mental disorder. An attendee asked Green how midlevel and enlisted troops feel about the “social revolution that’s being imposed upon them by this government.”

Green replied that many service members are younger and are more than fine serving alongside openly gay men and women, which have been allowed in the military since President Barack Obama signed the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” in 2010. He said that although most millennials are comfortable with people who are transgender, it is a “disease.”
Now get a load of what he said…
If you poll the psychiatrists, they’re going to tell you that transgender is a disease. It is a part of the DSM-6, I think it is, the book of diagnostic psychological procedures or diagnoses. It’s very interesting to see what’s happening in government, or in our nation.

But you ask about how we fix it ― how we get the toothpaste back in the tube. I gotta tell you ― it’s going to start with me being the salt and the light to the people around me. I mean, if you really want to bring this back to who’s at fault, we got to look a little bit inwardly. We’ve tolerated immorality. And we’re reflecting light.
Did you get it? Did you see how totally ignorant he is?

First off the DSM is only at version 5 not 6!

Then there is “If you poll the psychiatrists, they’re going to tell you that transgender is a disease.” No senator, all the major professional associations agree that it is not a “disease.”

And it is going to get worst not only for trans people in the military but also for the gays and lesbians, we are going back to the 1930s!
 “We are deeply concerned over reports that Mark Green will be nominated as Secretary of the Army,” AMPA President Ashley Broadway-Mack said. “Green has made a shameful political career out of targeting LGBT people for discrimination. All soldiers and their families, including those who are LGBT, should have confidence that the Secretary of the Army has their back and is working for their best interest. Unfortunately, based on his vicious, anti-LGBT record, Mark Green cannot be trusted to ensure all those who serve have the support they need and deserve.”
We are under attack from ignorant, bigoted, demeaning Republicans who are using us for their stepping stones to power and domination.
