Conservatives Spew Transphobia at Already Anti-Trans Federal Agency

An agency that deals with registering American men of adult age for the draft, the Selective Service System, is getting a lot of attention from conservatives because of how the agency handles matters surrounding sex and gender identity.Earlier this month, the agency sent a tweet that sent conservatives over the edge and gave the right-wing influencers more fodder for transphobic bigotry.“Parents, if your son is an only son and the last male in your family to carry the family name, he is still required to register with SSS,” the agency tweeted. “Learn more about who needs to register,” along with a link to the system’s guidelines.Reaction to the post was mixed, from some users seemingly surprised to learn that Selective Service is still a thing to others who believe a conspiracy theory that the Biden administration is secretly preparing for nuclear war with Russia.Stephen Miller, the Trump administration figure behind some of the most hateful acts of that period, including childhood separation, tweeted, “Growing concern about Biden tumbling us into nuclear Armageddon.” But not to be outdone, ultra-MAGA influencers like Jenna Ellis, a legal advisor for former President Donald Trump's presidential campaign who pushed the false claim of election fraud and was compelled to testify before a Georgia grand jury about her involvement in the plot to influence the election, took the opportunity to target the LGBTQ+ community.“What is a male?” the former traffic lawyer tweeted on October 9, amplifying the tweet to her hundreds of thousands of followers.

Transgender softball player furious Gay Softball World Series is in Dallas
executive order that directs law enforcement officials to investigate gender affirming medical treatments for transgender youths as a crime has grown loud and intense, with many demanding LGTBQ organizations condemn the order through significant action not just words.In an op-ed posted to SB Nation’s Outsports.com on Tuesday, March 1, Brittney Miller — 11-year veteran of the Gay Softball World Series (GSWS) and manager of the Puget Sound Pronouns — called for the 2022 event to be removed from Dallas and held in another city.Citing the fact that the GSWS has an “economic impact” of $5 to 7 million, Miller stated the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA) should find a new host city in a different state to support the transgender community.Miller called the executive order cruel and explained how it criminalizes the mere existence of transgender people, but her most severe criticisms were reserved for NAGAAA itself.The organization, which Miller stated is one of the “largest governing bodies of queer athletes in America,” has yet to release a statement on the issue, a decision Miller believes is indicative of how the organization views its transgender members.“NAGAAA’s failure to release even a milquetoast statement shows we [the transgender community] are an afterthought to them,” she wrote. “If the trans community can’t count on them to stand up to bullies in the face of cruelty and intolerance, who can we count on?”She explained that the “wait and see” approach NAGAAA seems to be employing with the executive order should be abandoned, immediately.
