Col. Kristin Goodwin, an openly LGBT officer, has been appointed to become commandant of the US Air Force Academy, the first gay person and only the second woman to occupy the position. On March 21, Air Force Times reported the Goodwin appointment, one that requires Senate confirmation writes Samanatha Allen for The Daily Beast

LifeSiteNews declared a pending catastrophe with the headline Lesbian with 'wife' and two kids selected to lead U.S. Air Force Academy, while relaying complaints from the Pray in Jesus Name Project.

During his confirmation hearings, US Secy of Defense Jim Mattis said, “I have never cared much about two consenting adults and who they go to bed with.” Goodwin also has “outstanding service and leadership credentials,” as a U.S. Air Force Academy spokesperson told the Air Force Times. And Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell—the policy prohibiting open military service by gay men, lesbians, and bisexual people—was repealed well over five years ago.
