The administration has merely required that transgender individuals meet the same requirements as all other Americans who apply for military service. Cue the usual lies and hysteria.
Bravo to President Trump and Defense Secretary James Mattis for making a common-sense decision and not being bullied into disastrous military policy by non-military voices.
No, the secretary of Defense is not leading or participating in a cabinet-level coup against the duly elected president of the United States.
If the military brass needs to cast the surgery kings and queens out to protect transgender military service for the healthy elements of our community, then I’m all for it.
Transgenders and transsexuals are every bit as human as everyone else, deserve every bit of human compassion, and shouldn’t be discriminated against. But that’s simply not the issue here.
If using the bathroom corresponding to your chromosomes while on base and paying for your own cosmetic alterations is too great of a sacrifice, the military life may not be for you.
Military service is a privilege, not a right. And the military has an obligation only to admit and retain soldiers who make it more effective at fighting wars.
I recently received a copy of the new ‘Tier Three Transgender Training’ materials that the U.S. Army is now using in mandatory training for all soldiers.
