As president and commander-in-chief, Donald Trump needs to start rolling back some of the outrageous social experimentation his predecessor tried to implement in our armed forces. And he can start by eliminating the mandate that the military begin allowing transgender soldiers to enlist without prejudice. This mandate is going to create confusion, division, and untold chaos in our armed forces at a time when we can ill afford to be distracted by the gender nonsense swamping American culture. We may have a serious war or two to prepare for in the very near future; we don’t need our men and women in uniform to be focused on anything other than the serious business of protecting and defending the country.
As it stands right now, new Army training directives are informing female soldiers that they’re going to have to get used to showering with men. Well, “men” who now think they are women. Or, as the training material puts it: Soldiers who “have physical characteristics of the opposite sex despite having the same gender marker.” In other words, men who SAY they are women despite having male genitalia. In the good old days, we would just call them “men.” Or “confused men,” at best. But now we’re to play into their delusion, pay for their sex operations, and let them go out there with their insanity and defend the U.S. with guns.
From a (very disturbing) Federalist article:
For a soldier to officially change gender requires only some paperwork. A military doctor or civilian medical professional must certify that the transgender person has achieved “stability in the preferred gender” and the soldier must change the gender designation on the soldier’s passport or birth certificate. From that point on, the transgender soldier is “expected to adhere to all military standards associated with their gender,” and “use the billeting, bathroom and shower facilities” of their new gender.
For example, “Vignette Four” of the training module presents the following scenario: “following her transition from male to female (which did not include sex reassignment surgery) and gender marker change in DEERS [DEERS is the military’s personnel database], a transgender Soldier begins using female barracks, bathroom and shower facilities. Because she did not undergo a surgical change, the Soldier still has male genitalia.”
How should troops respond? “Soldiers must accept living and working conditions that are often austere, primitive, and characterized by little or no privacy.”
This is no doubt true, but it sounds like all of the “normal” soldiers will be expected to deal with these difficult conditions while the “transgender” soldiers are entitled to an endless amount of bent-over-backwards, creative solutions to ensure that they are not offended.
It was bad enough that Obama thought American schoolchildren should have to engage in this make-believe universe where girls are boys and boys are girls according to choice; it’s nothing short of suicidal to force our military to indulge this lunacy. Transgenderism is a mental illness, and mental illness is a disqualifier for military service.
We know that President Trump has a soft spot for the LGBT community, but this is a bridge too far.
