President Trump Ends President Obama Transgender Military Policy…

President Donald Trump announced Wednesday he does not plan to plans to continue with President Obama’s transgender military policy.

The previous policy from President Obama, which was still under final review, would have allowed transgender individuals to openly serve in the military. Defense Secretary James Mattis announced last month he was delaying enactment during review of the plan.

    Way back when, my Social Biology Professor had announced to my class that he was retiring after the semester and that he is going to say and teach whatever he damn well pleases. About the homo issue, he stated it didn’t matter whether it was a social, genetic or some other biological cause – it is a defect because it ultimately does not result in reproduction and the furtherment of the species..

        ^^THIS^^. I’ve said it before and I’ll repeat it again. Until you can remove a Y chromosome and replace it with X, or take and X chromosome and replace it with a Y, you can never have true gender change. You cannot alter the DNA structure that determines gender. All you can do is surgically mutilate the body and live the rest of your life on synthetic hormones and expensive medical procedures and devices to keep your newly manufactured “gender” from reversing itself. It is mental illness to the nth degree.

    I’ll take the hate I’m going to get for saying this but I disagree with the blanket statement that there are no roles for transgendered in the military. Assuming they meet physical requirements, I can see plenty of roles in an all volunteer professional military. Linguists? Analysts? Drone pilots? Communications?
    I’m not saying tank gunner or sniper or infantry (unless they can do the job) so don’t put words in my mouth.
    With all due respect to the military AND MY MILITARY FAMILY MEMBERS WHOM I LOVE AND RESPECT we have guys in the military who steal naked pictures of their FELLOW SOLDIERS and pass them around and j$%k off to them so I think there is no valid argument for keeping our sainted boys in uniform pure from those awful confused folk.
    The American Military – in my humble opinion – is strong enough to handle having some different folk around.

        Maybe we should ban bright flashes of light and loud noises from the military, too. They are extremely distracting.
        Are you denying that there are guys passing around pictures of their female colleagues? Of course I don’t have names of the guys doing it I’m using it to make a point that we can respect our soldiers and they can still be imperfect humans.

    • Assuming they meet physical requirementI

      They might meet the physical requirements, but gender dysphoria is a mental illness, so they’d flunk the psych evil. Given that this group of people has a larger risk of suicide than the general population, there’s no valid reason to have mentally ill people involved with our national defense.

      As an experiment, replace transsexual with bipolar or chronic depression — which ones do you want to sign up for the military? All three are mental disabilities; drugs and therapy may help these people live semi-normal lives, but high-stress environments (bootcamp, deployment) could certainly trigger relapses.

        I suspect the suicide rate is high because eventually they realize that gender cannot be changed. Yes, men can get implants, grow hair, have hair removed, etc. but a male can never be a female and a female can never be a male. Once the game of pretend ends, and reality surfaces, depression follows and sadly, in many cases suicide. Those who have made really drastic changes (getting male genitalia removed) can’t get it back.

      Until you have actually “been there done that,” which I have, one would be best served by staying in their own field of expertise. All people cannot do all things. Transgenders do not belong in the military. Women do not belong in the infantry or anywhere near the front lines.

      There is absolutely no room for “transgender” people in the military regardless of how patriotic a person may be. “Transgender” is a mental illness. Look it up. There is no scientific basis for someone being a “transgender” person, absolutely none. There is no way a person can change their sex once they have been born with the genitalia they were born with. It is what it is. All the wishing, hormone injections, operations, and unisex bathroom signs will not change that. Deal with it. I don’t hate “transgenders”; they have a mental illness that needs to be dealt with.
      The military is not a social experiment playground. Well, it should not be anyway; there are a lot of changes that need to be made within the military since Ronald Reagan was President. The military is there to break things when that is necessary and to serve as a force for peace and a deterrent to war when not necessary. If war is then determined to be necessary, then the military should be sent to break everything that needs to be broken with extreme violence, get the job done, and then come home. The last time we did that was in WWII. Oh, and Grenada. Oh, and probably Gulf 1. Korea? Nope. Viet Nam? Nope. ME? Nope. Why? The people that serve, serve with distinction; government leadership has been the problem, not the people that serve on the ground, in the air, and on the sea.
      The USS Gerald R. Ford, when it becomes operational, will be the most powerful aircraft carrier the world has ever seen. This one ship will have more fire power and destructive capability then just about all of the aircraft carriers used by the US during WWII. Think about that. That ship and task force will be a deterrent to war and a force for peace. Why do other countries want to mess with us? I don’t know. Probably because the US military has not been utilized properly for what it is really supposed to do. But I digress. A powerful military has no room for people with “transgender” issues. The people serving must be focused on their job, be provided with all of the tools necessary to do their job, and have no distractions. “Transgender”, and all of the other social experiments have been, and are, a distraction from the military mission.

      Transgendered people have HUGE emotional issues and cannot be depended upon to be there when the going gets tough. They come with too much baggage to risk the lives of others around them. Granted some non trains people have baggage of their own so we don’t need to add to the problem. Our military doesn’t need to contend with more mental issues than they normally so. It’s a matter of national security. Besides, taxpayers should not be strapped with their reassignment surgery bills.

  4. Call me a skeptic, but I doubt 1,300 – 6,600 (with such a range cant they just say they have no clue) transgender people enlisted in the military since the ban was lifted by President Obama last summer. If transgender is such a minuscule micro-percentage of the population to begin with – it doesn’t seem likely large numbers of people who couldn’t figure out what their sex was were just waiting to join the military this past year. These numbers, still small that they are, are heavily inflated for political purposes.

        Let’s not forget the cost. Some transgender confused man or woman does a two year stint in the military as something easy, say a truck driver. At the end of two years, they get FREE transgender reassignment surgery. Yup, you and me, the American taxpayer will pay well in excess of $100K in medical costs just for the initial re-assignment surgery. Then there are the forever hormone drug treatments and prescriptions for the rest of that person’s life. It could end up costing into the millions of dollars for our military to have a truck driver for two short years. How many tanks could that money have built? How much money will the VA have to spend on transgender people when it can barely afford to care for normal vets?

    Beyond even the arguments for social engineering, transgenderism is simply a benign word for what is an extreme mental illness. A man who truly believes he is a woman in all ways, and further wants to mutilate his body to achieve fully female outward appearance is in desperate need of a psychiatrist. The same for a woman who wishes to physically morph into a man. The ones who claim they identify male sometimes, female sometimes, and demand to alter the rules of grammar by creating an entirely new list of pronouns, are simply activists seeking attention and are the current crop of useful idiots for the left.

    Suicide attempts are alarmingly common among transgender individuals such as Lampe; 41% try to kill themselves at some point in their lives, compared with 4.6% of the general public
    The numbers come from a study by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the Williams Institute, which analyzed results from the National Transgender Discrimination Survey. Researchers are preparing to launch another version of the online survey on Wednesday.

    President Trump’s decision to ban transgenders from serving in the U.S. military has created a firestorm across the country. J.R. Salzman, an amputee Iraq War veteran, took to Twitter to defend the decision and the thread is going viral.

    “I served in Iraq in 2006. For the first five months I was on a 12 man firebase out in the middle of nowhere in the desert.”
    — J.R. Salzman (@jrsalzman) July 26, 2017

    “Everyday was Groundhog Day. Wake up and do the same patrols, the same shifts, every single day. It was so damn hot. 150° in the gun trucks.

    “Tracer fire would go overhead occasionally at night. IED’s on the road were a daily threat. We got resupplied food every 8 days.

    “QRF was an hour away. After they made the minimum three gun truck rule after the guys got kidnapped, life got harder.

    “The stress of being out there and doing the same job every single day eats away at you. The younger guys had problems with that overtime.

    “Any tiny little personal issue they had suddenly became a mountain. And that shit came out on that fire base. And they snapped mentally.

    “After stepping on each other’s nuts living in the same can for five months, guys were at each other’s throats. The stress made it worse.

    “Guys would literally snap over a dear John letter. Their personal issues came out and they were instantly combat ineffective.

    “Now take someone confused about whether they are a man/woman. Take those psychological and emotional issues and put them in that environment

    “Take someone who is right off the bat not uniform or part of the same team. Give them special treatment because of their identity.

    “You have to be incredibly tough mentally, physically and emotionally. War is not a f*cking video game. It tests every ounce of your being.

    “You can’t teach someone to be a fearless warrior in a f*cking PowerPoint. You either have it or you don’t. You can hack it or you can’t.

    “We had guys who couldn’t. When faced with combat situations they crumbled. They had mental and emotional issues. They were a liability.

    “To be successful at war, you have to become a warrior mentally, physically, and emotionally. You can’t fake it and go through the motions.

    “In war if it comes down to kill or be killed, and you hesitate, you’re dead. It’s a simple as that. It’s not a f*cking video game.

    “War is no place for people who are mentally, emotionally, or physically confused or in turmoil. You have your shit together, or you don’t.

    “And if you don’t, you’ll just get people needlessly killed. Political correctness has absolutely no place in the military.

    “Enough for now. This one armed veteran has a business to run. Unlike Iran, the country that took my arm, Obama didn’t pay me millions.”
