Corey Taylor‘s son, Griffin, has expressed his dissatisfaction over the law that transgender people can join U.S. army.
He posted on Instagram: “On behalf of my friend who is trans. F*CK THIS LAW STATING THAT TRANS PEOPLE CANT JOIN THE ARMY ?it’s f*cking stupid! You can’t deny someone from doing something just because they chose to become something! If you are old enough to pay taxes then you should have the option to join the army if that’s your decision. F*CK TRUMP, F*CK HIS SH*TTY TAN, AND F*CK ME FOR SAYING SOMETHING POLITICAL! ????”
