Republican politicians have a vendetta against the transgender community.
Donald Trump’s call to bar all transgender individuals from service in the United States Army is a small indication of the Republican’s larger animosity towards trans people. Some physiologists now believe that the animosity comes from a deeper sense of self-loathing and identity suppression. In other words, many anti-transgender politicians are themselves somewhere on the transgender/queer spectrum, or they have deep-seated, repressed desires for intimacy in the transgender world. Of course, this is only a theory and cannot be confirmed unless one on one therapy is conducted.
Especially damning is the when politicians hide behind the veil of religion to justify their animosity. Instead, polls show, intelligent consumers of news media think that the politicians are hiding behind a shield, protecting themselves from their own guilt.
