CABINET/DEFENSE/JAMES MATTIS: "Mattis signaled that he doesn’t intend to reverse Obama administration decisions that opened combat positions to women, gave gay and lesbian service members protection from discrimination, and lifted bans against transgender men and women serving openly in the military.
'I've never cared much about two consenting adults and who they go to bed with,' he told the Senate Armed Services Committee."
