The United States Navy has done the right thing by removing posts from its official social media pages commemorating LGBTQ+ Pride Month. The Navy’s posts, featuring a fighter jet with the LGBTQ flag colors in its wake, were finally removed due to expected backlash from critics of the LGBTQ+ agenda, who have become increasingly vocal in recent years.

According to Fox News, emails obtained by the outlet a year ago showed that Navy officials were hesitant to allow comments on social media posts due to expected backlash. Navy officials went as far as calling critics of the LGBTQ+ agenda “bigots” and “a**holes.”

At long last, the Pentagon has stopped military bases from hosting drag shows to commemorate Pride Month after criticism from some Republicans. Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL) called it a “huge victory,” and he is right.
It is good news that the Navy has reportedly removed posts from its official social media pages commemorating LGBTQ+ Pride Month. Members of the LGBTQ+ community should not be promoted or celebrated in the military, as they undermine the very values of the military. The focus in the military should be on the mission, not on promoting the LGBTQ+ agenda.
