every time the rights of such and such a minority come up, their military service is brought up? why? because marginalised groups are intrinsically suspect to white supremacy; participating in imperialist wars is means of proving their fundamental allegiance to it. america, a settler colony, predicates citizenship, in fact humanity, on willingness to do genocide
not ofc that even this is worth much; the lives of veterans mean absolutely nothing to the system, and no matter how many queer or muslim or w/e people make themselves into accessories to war crimes they will remain oppressed. the very requirement of proving your loyalty to the american project ensures that it's always up to question
banning trans people from the military is troublesome insofar as, in an incredibly deeply militarised society, it further licences transmisia. but i have an extremely hard time being excited about the ban being lifted
