'Conservatives launching ugly campaign against America's transgender troops' & other Tue midday news briefs

Conservatives Launch Full-Scale Campaign to Reinstate “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” for Transgender Troops - Using the same tactics they used in the early 90s after Bill Clinton's election to keep gay and lesbian soldiers from serving openly. It's a nasty degree of coordination which is to be expected between the right-wing media, the religious right, and other ridiculous folks. It's insulting to the the transgender soldiers who are already serving proudly in the military. I guess we will hear all sorts of nonsense about showers, close quarters, and, in this case, transgender male soldiers wanting to get pregnant.
