Trump’s Decision to Ban Transgenders

Opinion:  “President Trump is correct to block trans soldiers’ attempts to emulate the opposite sex because it will not strengthen our military nor provide transgender people long-term help.” 

Why Trump Keeping Trans People From The Military Is A Good Decision

By Walt Heyer, The Federalist.com, July 27, 2017

In a stunning move, President Trump announced on Twitter that transgender individuals will not serve in the U.S. military. Despite Congress voting in late July to fund gender-reassignment surgery for military service members, Trump tweeted Wednesday: “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.”

Activist groups announced plans to sue immediately if Trump codifies this policy in an executive order, and Sen. John McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, issued a statement defending the Department of Defense’s decision under President Obama to allow transgender soldiers to remain in the armed forces. He says there’s not enough evidence that transgender people will reduce combat effectiveness or that transgender soldiers’ elective gender-change surgeries are too steep a price for taxpayers to pay.

McCain is wrong. Iraq combat veteran J.R. Salzman pointed out on Twitter the day of Trump’s announcement that in combat all emotional vulnerabilities matter and threaten soldiers’ lives and units: “War is no place for people who are mentally, emotionally, or physically confused or in turmoil. You have your sh-t 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.”

    Trumps choice was a great choice. The military discriminates every day. Contrary to popular belief, the military is not an equal opportunity employer. If you have diabetes, you can’t join. If you are overweight, you can’t join. If you’re on anti-depressants, you can’t join. If you have asthma, you can’t join. If you’re too short, you can’t join. If you’re disabled in any way, you can’t join. So if you have gender dysphoria, YOU CAN’T JOIN! The military isn’t a social experiment. Our military is about effectiveness, not virtue signaling.

    ALLOWING TRANSGENDER PERSONS INTO THE MILITARY WAS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATIONS SNEAKY WAY OF FORCING THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS TO PAY FOR GENDER REASSIGNMENT SURGERY. I CAUGHT THAT RIGHT AWAY. THE MILITARY IS ALLOWED TO PERFORM AND EXPERIMENT WITH MEDICAL PROCEDURES THAT ARENT ALLOWED IN CIVILLIAN MEDICINE. TBI, RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY BEING THE TWO MAIN PROCEDURES THE MILITARY ISEXPERT. CIVILLIAN RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY HAS BEEN GREATLY ADVANCED DUE TO MILITARY PROCEDURES ADOPTED BY PLASTIC SURGEONS. THE LEFT IS HAVING A FIELD DAY WITH THIS GENDER BENDER ISSUE. IT HAS ZERO TO WITH RELIGION, MORALS, SEX, OR IF PEOPLE WHO DONT BELIEVE IN THIS ARE STUPID BACKWARD HICKS. ITS ALL ABOUT NOT STICKING IT TO THE TAX PAYERS FOR RECONSTRUCTIVE GENDER RE-ASSIGMENT SURGERY. THANK YOU PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP. ISNT HE THE BEST

    Nobody has a “right” to serve in the Military. Nobody!!

    What makes you people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer? Very far from it.

    The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for a variety of reasons, like being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short.

    Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing fingers or toes, poor eyesight will disqualify you, poor hearing, undernourished, Drug addiction, metal implants, Criminal history, Anxiety, Phobias, Hearing voices in your head, Self-identify as a Unicorn, handicapped in anyway, Can’t run the required distance in the required time, Can’t do the required number of pushups or sit-ups, have an eating disorder, or any kind of mental disorder, have a below average IQ, can’t read or comprehend English, can’t problem solve or make quick decisive decisions.

    Are you not really a “morning person” and refuse to get out of bed before noon? You’re out!

    You have a penis but want to use the women’s restroom? You’re out!

    Don’t like the camouflage uniforms because you’d rather wear pink? You’re out!

    The Military has one job… Prepare for War against anybody who threatens the safety and sovereignty of our nation! Anything else is a distraction and a liability.

    Did someone just scream “That isn’t Fair”? War is VERY unfair. There are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful or different.

    YOU change yourself to meet Military standards. Not the other way around.

    I say again: You don’t change the Military standards… you must change yourself.

    The Military doesn’t need to accomodate anyone with special needs or emotional and mental issues. The Military needs to Win Wars.

    If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality… Then Thank you for applying and good luck in your future endeavors. Who’s next in line?

    45 % of transgenders between the ages of 18 and 24 have already tried to kill themselves. Yeah great idea, give them a gun and put them in charge of protecting the country.
