Space Force Col. Bree Fram, a distinguished transgender service member, advocate, and rocket scientist, recently faced a barrage of online attacks following a derogatory post by Chaya Raichik’s Libs of TikTok account. Out of the blue, Fram became the subject of hateful, personal, and dehumanizing rhetoric after Raichik targeted her. The post, which included a photo of Fram before her transition and text that misgendered and ridiculed her, sparked widespread online harassment. On X, formerly Twitter, right-wing transphobes and extremists became enraged about Fram’s existence. Yet it did little to deter Fram’s resolve and commitment to her role and advocacy. Fram spoke with The Advocate about what happened and emphasized that her views do not necessarily reflect those of the U.S. Space Force or the Department of Defense.
