The Internet Reacts To Trump's Transgender Military Ban

In an unexpected move, Donald Trump  announced on Twitter that transgender Americans would be banned from military service. The President claims that the motivation behind the move was fiscal - that the cost of caring for transgender soldiers is a financial burden, but netizens, journalists and politicians were all quick to challenge this notion. The outrage at Trump's tweet was heard (read) far and wide - and even inspired some memes. 

Collection of Twitter and meme reactions to the news of Donald Trump's transgender military ban.

An anonymous hacker, known only on Twitter as @WauchulaGhost, and a few of their friends hijacked several Twitter accounts that were known to be associated or in support of ISIS.  This has been going on for a few months, @WauchulaGhost is apparently affiliated with the "hacktivist" group Anonymous. After the attack in Orlando, they and some others have stared adding rainbows, messages saying "Out and Proud" and even some links to gay porn to these compromised accounts. According to Newsweek, the hacker claims to have taken over at least 200 accounts and plans to continue this campaign.

EA Games and Maxis are ending all gender restrictions in the latest version of The Sims 4. According to Associated Press, over 700 pieces of content were locked based on gender before this change. That includes hairstyles, clothing and voice options and apparently a lot more. 

Maxis worked with LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD on the update. The game mechanics as well as the cosmetics of characters will be a little more gender fluid. Now characters can look however players choose AND change gender at any time and decide whether they can reproduce with other characters or not. Gender symbols will also be removed from the game's gallery feature. 

So far, the response has been mostly positive:

Will this love story happen in the next films, maybe not. As to why this is trending, it seems like it has a lot to do with a lackluster love story in the most recent Captain America:Civil War. (WARNING: Mild spolier ahead?)

Language Warning: Some angry participants let a few choice words fly when they find out about the twist. 

The fictional Boss Quoss, an openly gay rapper, hired a bunch of extras to lend him a hand in making his latest video. They took off their shirts, danced close to each other and even participated in a choreographed dance that was obviously just the "jerk-off" motion but none of them suspected a thing. 

When the big reveal happened some people walked away from the set, others stood behind Boss Quoss. A number of extras were very nice and offered words of support before continuing with the shoot. 



Here's the actual music video for those of you waiting to see the finished product:
