"Anti-LGBT" Laws Threaten US Military Readiness
According to Space Force Chief, DeAnna Burt
At a pride event held this month at the Pentagon, Space Force Chief Operating Officer Lt. Gen. DeAnna Burt attacked the proliferation of over 400 state regulations which she described as "anti-LGBTQ+" and suggested that such laws were a danger to military readiness and to individual soldiers. The how and why of her claims are not as clear, though Burt appeared to insinuate that these laws would "distract" service members from their duties by preventing them from being their "true selves."
The supposed threat of anti-LGBT laws apparently extends to the children of service members, as Burt asserted in an indirect manner that soldiers who are parents might feel unsafe if their trans kids do not have access to gender affirming healthcare.
