Petty Officer Second Class Megan Winters, a transgender sailor and litigant in Karnoski v. Trump says being able to transition in the Navy has left her personally and professionally “rejuvenated.”
Although the military cites no evidence that the presence of transgender service members jeopardizes military readiness, the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday allowing the Trump administration to ban transgender people.

Stating the obvious: The ban was never been about the military’s lethality
Transgender military service serves as a benchmark of progress by countries grappling with democratic progress.
As a news reporter, I have seen trans military service cited numerous times by media in Pakistan and India as an ideal to strive for.
It is about democracy.
Trump knows this and has focused the might of his administration to strip this option from transgender people. Trump doesn’t care anymore about democratic institutions abroad than he does in his own country. He is hell-bent on destroying these institutions with the endgame of installing himself as a dictator.
Regardless of how you feel about military service
We must unite to fight against trumps evil intentions with every breath and give him no concessions or quarter whether he feigns compromise or surrender.
