I've asked two questions today dealing with transgender people in the military and they were denied. I was respectful and honestly wanted to know what people thought What is the problem?
There is a topic tree branch for it, so the word must be okay

Perhaps you were denied because they believe the question is more appropriate for a forum. They have been cracking down on Q&A that are not being used to "inspire hubs" or something like that.
Did you ask questions that would lead to the creation of a Hub? If not, don't ask in the Q&A area. That's not what that section is for.
If your questions might have been used to create a Hub, it wouldn't surprise me if a moderator here responded to a wave of complaints against your questions from the military and religious-focused members of the site and denied them. Transpersons are not allowed to serve openly in the U.S. military and face a lot of discrimination to their existence in general.
Your questions were not moderated due to the content of the question, but to it being a discussion of opinion.
Questions are intended as a place to ask a factual question from which you can create a Hub.
For discussions of opinion, please use the forums and not QA.

Here's what it is...
You picked a hot button, newsworthy topic. As such, it will generate lots of answers, traffic, and ad revenue.
In the Q&A section, HP only gets 40% of the revenue. In the forums, HP gets 100% of the revenue.
And that is why the rules are what they are.
Me thinks I'm feeling cynical today...

There are some troubled men who regularly use forums, and they have not a single hub in their profiles. How come? How is it allowed? I do not get it--- Is HubPages a chat-website?
