The judge is absolutely right!

As we reported, Richard Simmons sued the National Enquirer and parent company American Media, Inc. for defamation after they ran a story claiming the fitness legend was undergoing hormone treatment and is in the process of sexual reassignment.

Fast forward to this week, the 69-year-old suffered a potentially significant legal loss which could mean the end of his lawsuit!

According to the judge, calling someone transgender doesn't necessarily subject the individual to "hatred, contempt, or ridicule." He explains:

"While, as a practical matter, the characteristic may be held in contempt by a portion of the population, the court will not validate those prejudices by legally recognizing them."

Although the ruling is "tentative," Simmons' chances of winning seem slim.

We have to agree. Transgender is NOT a negative label!

This is a step in the right direction!

As we reported, last week, Donald Trump moved forward with his transgender military ban, which he originally announced in a July tweet.

Fast forward to Tuesday, United States Secretary of Defense James Mattis is putting a freeze on the policy, and will allow trans soldiers to continue serving until further orders.

Matts said in a statement:

"Once the panel reports its recommendations and following my consultation with the secretary of Homeland Security, I will provide my advice to the president concerning implementation of his policy direction… In the interim, current policy with respect to currently serving members will remain in place."

The Pentagon will determine how (and if) transgender troops can serve, whether they will receive medical treatment, and how they will be discharged.

Take that, Trump!
