Immediately After Demise of ‘Don’t Ask,’

Activists Call for End To Military Ban On Transgenders

A well know spiritual  leader declared 30 years ago that the acceptance of homosexuality would be the end of all morality.   Acceptance of homosexuality is based on the belief that homosexuals do not choose the homosexual behavior but are born that way; thus,  the comparison by homosexuals themselves to the civil rights of the African Americans.   Basing a person's behavior on genetics rather than choice would mean that the behavior of the transgender, the cross-dressers, the   pedophile, the rapist, the alcoholic, the murderer, the thief, and any form of crime is not the responsibility of the person but of genetics - or the end of morality.

 Therefore, it is of no surprise to most conservatives that homosexuals and transgenders wanted Obama to sign an "Executive Order prohibiting discrimination in the armed services based on sexual orientation and gender identity to be effective on the date of repeal of  'Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell'" - just as President Truman did when he issued an Executive Order banning racial discrimination in the armed services. And it is of no shock to most conservatives either that the push is on to destigmatize pedophilia. Note below the article the bullet points that indicate where Arkansas stands in the homosexual and sexual revolution.

After demise of ‘don’t ask,’

activists call for end to military ban on transgenders

With homosexuals now able to serve openly in the military, the gay rights movement’s next battleground is to persuade the Obama administration to end the armed forces’ ban on “transgenders,” a group that includes transsexuals and cross-dressers ...


 The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN), which pushed to end the military’s gay ban, is urging President Obama to sign an executive order prohibiting discrimination based on “gender identity.”  It had wanted the order to happen on Sept. 20, the official date “don’t ask, don’t tell,” as the gay ban was called, ended via repeal legislation signed by Mr. Obama.


In a letter to Mr. Obama, SLDN Director Aubrey Sarvis wrote: “We ... call on you to show the leadership President Truman did when he issued an Executive Order banning racial discrimination in the armed services and to issue an Executive Order prohibiting discrimination in the armed services based on sexual orientation and gender identity to be effective on the date of repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”


The SLDN says “transgender” is commonly identified as an umbrella term for “transsexuals, cross-dressers, gender-queer people, intersex people, and other gender-variant individuals.”Transgenders are not banned by law, but rather by a Defense Department instruction, “Medical Standards for Appointment, Enlistment or Induction in the Military Service.”


It lists scores of medical conditions that make one ineligible, including: “Current or history of psychosexual conditions, including but not limited to transsexualism, exhibitionism, transvestism, voyeurism, and other paraphilias.”


Note the surprising facts about Arkansas below:


·         Arkansas ranks third in the percentage of same-sex couples who are raising children among the 41 states for which 2010 Census counts have been made public, according to an analysis of the figures released Thursday.  "State put near top in same-sex parents", Arkansas Democrat Gazette, August 12, 2011


·         Arkansas Has Become a Magnet for gay surrogacy.  Quotes below from this link:


Arkansas is one of 9 states that "allow gay surrogacy.  A growing number of gay and lesbian couples and individuals are turning to the use of surrogate mothers as a means of starting their family! ... "It's becoming quite popular," says the Lesbian & Gay Parenting Resource. [But  "trafficking in children" is a term a New York Court used in reference to surrogacy contracts like those allowed in Arkansas."]


In fact, it appears that Arkansas has become a magnet for gay surrogacy. The surrogacy law in Arkansas is among the most favorable in the United States, according to the website of Surrogacy Solutions in Sherwood, Arkansas...


"There is a quiet but thriving network of Arkansas women who have been carrying babies for couples from all over the country and Europe, where surrogacy is illegal...Melissa Brisman, a New Jersey attorney specializing in reproductive law, said about 10 percent of the surrogates her agency uses live in Arkansas," according to Arkansas Democrat Gazette article August 5, 07.


"Gary Sullivan, a Little Rock fertility lawyer, helps connect surrogates with prospective parents and makes arrangements for necessary court orders," reports the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.  Gary Sullivan is described in another article in that paper as gay and as having a daughter by a surrogate parent: "Sullivan and his domestic partner worked with two egg donors and two surrogates before Leslie-Joe was born...Both surrogates were single.)  Can we assume that the prospective parents with whom Sullivan works are probably gay? 

  • Arkansas is home to the largest concentration of sexual predators and convicts in the United States. With 5954 sex offenders per million residents,  Oddly, the Arkansas Crime Information Center only requires an offender's name and address be displayed for public scrutiny. With so many offenders, many children's rights advocates insist the state should be providing more detailed information, including an offender's current place of employment.
