Transphobes Have Really Good Idea for Once

When I first saw this ad, I thought the intent was much different from what the actual intent turned out to be.

You can probably guess which one I assumed was supposed to be the bad one.

FRCAction is the "legislative affiliate of Family Research Council," the anti-LGBTQ+ hate group according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. These are the people largely responsible for the horrific persecution of gay individuals in Uganda.

But now this tweet is being spread around progressive circles and may have the exact opposite effect that was intended, because a whole lot of us would much rather the military spend money on helping veterans become their true selves than building more death machines. So nice of them to include the number. If you're in New York especially, consider giving Representative Tom Reed a call and tell him how you want the military's bloated budget to be spent.
