Palm Center researcher counters Family Research Council's attack on Obama's advances for LGBT in military after Trump election

Aaron Belkin, of the Palm Center in Los Angeles (I visited him there in February 2002), reports that the Family Research Council has been trying to capitalize on Trump’s election (and particularly on some of his proposed opponents) by suggesting that military readiness demands rolling back the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and even return to the absolute ban, possibly in response to some abstract theories in Mattis’s book (“Warriors and Citizens”).   The FRC also has a paper criticizing the Pentagon over the transgender policy, here.

Aaron Belkin, of the Palm Center at the University of California at Santa Barbara, wrote this piece in “The Hill”, “LGBT inclusion holds all US military to same high standard”.
