Who had on their 2022 Bingo Cards that the US Military would be defending its service members from the gubmints of Texas and Florida?
In an usual move, the U.S. Air Force recently informed its service members that it will support their families with medical and legal help if they are affected by dozens of new state laws restricting LGBTQ rights, including relocating families if the need arises.
The assistance was made widely public in a March 24 news release that initially attracted little attention. It announced a de facto expansion of human rights protections for these military families as states have moved to ban gender-affirming care for minors, restrict teaching about sexual orientation and gender identity in public schools, and prohibittrans athletes from playing on girls’ sports teams.
Look, when your hateful state government has gone so far around the bend (Hello Abbott! Hi, DeSantis!) that the US military has to leave to protect service members from your culture war schemes, you might want to reconsider your actions and certainly your priorities.
