Thomas A. Blakelock High School has a GSA. Like, a pretty rad one. This blog exists primarily for our own education and reminders, but everybody in the tumblrverse is welcome to participate and enjoy.

Pentagon releases gay-inclusive, trans-exclusive human rights charter

gaywrites:

The Pentagon on Monday issued a new declaration of human rights for service members, and while it gave a nod to LGB members of the armed forces, it clearly lacked any reference to trans people, troops or civilian workers. 

Called the Department of Defense Human Goals Charter, the document is meant to create guidelines that will help achieve goals reflecting a more inclusive culture. However, it doesn’t enact any policy changes; for example, even after the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, LGBT people are not included in the DoD Non-Discrimination Policy and the Military Equal Opportunity Program.

In a section of the document that lays out the process for “attainment of these goals,” the term sexual orientation is included on both the military and civilian side.
The charter includes sexual orientation as a category in which the military will strive to be a “model of equal opportunity.” The term “sexual orientation” is also included in a section that describes ways “to provide equity in civilian employment.”
But there is no reference to gender identity. Transgender people are barred from service in the military because of medical regulations, despite growing efforts among LGBT advocates to push for openly transgender service. 

It’s unfair to consider small motions like this one as victories when they deliberately exclude such a huge part of our community. And this is especially weird to read just as the Department of Education is making huge strides for trans students. Thanks for trying, DoD friends, but next time, please pay attention to the people fighting alongside you.
