What’s up Buttercup?

So, Mardi Gras has come and gone after 17 times marching in the parade, I made the decision to boycott the parade and party this year and save my holidays for later on in the year (code for “being a lazy old queen” lol). With that said I don’t think I missed out on much but saved a lot of money. Things are starting to get a little cold in Western Sydney I’m looking forward to catching up with friends and doing some things I normally wouldn’t do there’s always something to do in western Sydney. This month I will celebrate 26 years of doing drag meaning I’m technically 52 years young OMG it’s my birthday = YUCK. That means I will reduce my responsibilities and push it onto my drag daughters and other high-profile queens in the Western Sydney Community. Am I starting to feel a little clucky, do we have a new member to the Buttercup family? YASSSSS I will be a  grandmother lol grandfather in April OMG I’m feeling old  but excited.

Enough about me!

US Supreme Court Allows Trans Military Ban to go ahead

  • Published in Latest

Justices of the supreme court won’t hear arguments but block lower court orders making one of the most unpopular Presidents in US history's repeated push to ban trans people from openly serving in the armed forces.

The justices, voting 5-4 Tuesday, put on hold lower court decisions that had blocked the administration’s planned ban from taking effect. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan dissented. Neither side provided any explanation.

The court stopped short of agreeing to hear arguments on an expedited basis, as the administration sought. But by letting the ban take effect, the court gave the administration a "major victory" and hinted the justices ultimately will uphold the restrictions.

Transgender troops have been serving openly since June 2016, when President Barack Obama’s administration began lifting a longstanding prohibition. Opponents of the ban say reinstating it would violate the Constitution’s equal protection clause.

Estimates vary of how many transgender people serve in the military. A 2016 Rand study estimated that between 1,320 and 6,630 transgender people were on active duty. The Mattis report said that since June 2016, about 900 people on active duty have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria -- the medical term for a conflict between one’s physical gender and the gender with which the person identifies.

The report also said that a 2016 survey of the military found that almost 9,000 people identified as transgender.
