Air Force Under Secretary Threatens Texas for Protecting Kids From Trans Abuse
How long until some of the woke brass escalate to proposing bombing runs?
For now, Under Secretary of the Air Force Gina Ortiz Jones issued a wildly inappropriate official statement about laws like those of Texas, which notified social workers that they were obligated to monitor abuses, such as subjecting children to "reassignment surgeries that can cause sterilization, mastectomies, removals of otherwise healthy body parts, and administration of puberty-blocking drugs or supraphysiologic doses of testosterone or estrogen."
Notably, from AG Ken Paxton, "Generally, the age of majority is eighteen in Texas. TEX. CIV. PRAC. & REM. CODE § 129.001. With respect to consent to sterilization procedures, Medicaid sets the age threshold even higher, at twenty-one years old. Children and adolescents are promised relief and asked to “consent” to life-altering, irreversible treatment—and to do so in the midst of reported psychological distress, when they cannot weigh long-term risks the way adults do, and when they are considered by the State in most regards to be without legal capacity to consent, contract, vote, or otherwise."
Obama and Biden poisoned the military by elevating radical leftists and extremists woke, planting them deep into the system where they make policy.
And so here's the Under Secretary of the Air Force deciding to wage lawfare against Texas.
Various laws and legislation are being proposed and passed in states across America that may affect LGBTQ Airmen, Guardians, and/or their LGBTQ dependents in different ways.
The Department of the Air Force has assignment, medical, legal and other resources available to support Airmen, Guardians and their families.
“The health, care and resilience of our DAF personnel and their families is not just our top priority – it’s essential to our ability to accomplish the mission,” said Under Secretary of the Air Force Gina Ortiz Jones. “We are closely tracking state laws and legislation to ensure we prepare for and mitigate effects to our Airmen, Guardians and their families. Medical, legal resources, and various assistance are available for those who need them.”
What mission is that?
If service members or their families need help with screening, treatment, or mental health support for medical concerns, they should start with DAF medical treatment facilities, according to DAF officials. The MTFs can also assist with navigating challenging life circumstances.
The Exceptional Family Member Program is another resource available for all active component Airmen and Guardians to assist families with special needs during the PCS process to include navigating medical, legal, and educational support for dependents during relocation.
“As is the case with all of our family members, if the support a family member needs becomes unavailable, commanders can work to get the service member to an assignment where their loved ones can receive the care they need,” Jones added.
The legal resources part suggests lawfare. The rest of it seems to suggest that the Air Force would now be expected to take on the task of finding a place that will help sexually mutilate children. Also implicit in this will be leveraging the Air Force's presence in states like Texas to apply pressure the way corporations do.
Gina Ortiz Jones was a failed congressional candidate and Biden made headlines appointing her because she's gay. More problematically, she's an extremist and is politicizing the non-partisan Air Force.
