Trump Institutes Ban On Most Gender Confused In The Military

Reading all the different stories, it appears that what Team Trump is attempting to do is make sure that those who want to use the military as a way to get free medical treatment and even sex reassignment surgery, along with those with serious medical issues (who are denied under Pentagon rules to start with for all citizens), are not allowed to serve in the military

(Politico) President Donald Trump on Friday issued orders to ban transgender troops who require surgery or significant medical treatment from serving in the military except in select cases — following through on a controversial pledge last year that has been under review by the Pentagon and is being fought out in the courts.

The memorandum, which drew swift condemnation from gender rights groups, states that while the secretary of defense and other executive branch officials will have some latitude in implementing the policy, “persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria — including individuals who the policies state may require substantial medical treatment, including medications and surgery — are disqualified from military service except under limited circumstances.” (snip)

“The experts’ study sets forth a policy to enhance our military’s readiness, lethality, and effectiveness,” it continued, adding that officials “concluded that the accession or retention of individuals with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria — those who may require substantial medical treatment, including through medical drugs or surgery — presents considerable risk to military effectiveness and lethality.”

“This new policy,” the White House statement added, “will enable the military to apply well-established mental and physical health standards — including those regarding the use of medical drugs — equally to all individuals who want to join and fight for the best military force the world has ever seen.”

Getting through all the hoopla and fearmongering, the military doesn’t allow other citizens to join if they have serious medical and/or mental health issues to start. They wouldn’t let you join if you have an issue which would require surgery to fix, nor if you have a mental health issue which would make it hard for you to do the job or put the lives of other troops in danger. This is just codifying it for the gender confused.

LGBT advocates who have sought to head off such a move in the courts swiftly slammed the decision, calling it “appalling, reckless and unpatriotic.”

“Donald Trump and Mike Pence are literally wreaking havoc on the lives of our military families,” said Ashley Broadway-Mack, president of the American Military Partner Association. “This unconscionable attack on our military families cannot stand — we refuse to allow it.”

We keep being told that TGs amount to .02% of the population. What’s the big deal? You’re entitled to your views and your lunacy, but the rest of us are not required to participate.

(Breitbart) The Pentagon’s rejection of the transgender ideology pushed by Obama is a huge win for the feminist and conservative groups who want to preserve the legal and civic distinctions between the two equal, different and complementary male and female biological sexes.

The rejection of Obama’s policy prompted emotional protests from progressives who wish to outlaw and stigmatize the distinctions between women and men, and between girls and boys. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the House’s minority leader, described the revived policy as a “hateful” insult to “our brave transgender members of the military who serve with honor & dignity.”

In their immediate response, progressive advocates tried to smear Trump’s defense of sexual distinctions as “bigotry.” They did not try to make any substantial arguments why Americans should agree to the transgender demand that people can change their legal sex by simply declaring themselves to be members of the other sex.

Of course they don’t. What argument is there? If someone has a mental illness, we should be offering treatment, not condoning it. Democrats condone this particular one. They never really give a rational, cogent, adult reason for it. Just unhinged feelings based rants.

The military is here to defend the nation, not coddle people with mental issues and provide free surgery.

      60 Minutes has always been a whorehouse.

      The market went insane because of FB’s data mining scandal.

      Tax cuts didn’t help? Look at all the manufacturing jobs coming back.

      Staff is being fired, mostly for leaks.

      And who says the Demo’s cash cow is being cut?

      Quoting Maher? You are a fool.

    I was denied enlistment due to the vision on my right eye; this was after the Vietnam War was over and conscription had been ended, and the military needed recruits.

    I didn’t like it, but it made sense: while my vision was correctable with glasses, had I been thrust into a critical situation, and my glasses lost or destroyed, I would not have been able to perform my duties since I couldn’t see well enough to do them.

    Why, then, should mentally ill ‘transgendered’ troops be allowed to serve? We know, in advance, that they will require expensive surgery and a continuing pharmacological regimen and be non-deployable for an extended period of time.

    They should be removed from the United States military, period. Give them general discharges and get them out.

    • Jeffery says:

      Fortunately, US Courts will make a fair evaluation of the cases, and it’s likely that the mentally ill (tRump and his voters/supporters) will lose.

      It usually takes a while but in liberal democracies the bigots (decency confused) lose. That said, the Putin-controlled right-wingers are working hard to conquer the liberal democracies of Europe and the America. It will be interesting to see how America stands up to Putin’s efforts.

      • formwiz says:

        The mentally ill are people like you, dear.

        And this is not a liberal democracy, it’s a federal republic.

        Pick up a book.

        • Jeffery says:

          Well of course American is liberal democracy, sweetmeat.

          Pick up a book, yourself.

          Are all Con Men genetically ignorant and bigoted or is it only the new breed – the kind of man who would think Don Juan tRump is a good president?

          jesus…

            Jeff,
            You are the one consistently showing ignorance. Clean up your own house first.

          • Hoss says:

            Under a liberal democracy freedom of speech and religion are primary, and the democrat party is doing it’s very level best to shit on both freedoms.

      • Dana says:

        Serving in the armed forces is not a right, it is a privilege. The military have reasonable restrictions on who can serve, restrictions which make sense given the mission of the armed services. Should a blind man have a ‘right’ to serve, given his physical limitation?

        You have, yourself, stated that we should restrict the right to keep and bear arms from the mentally ill . . . which means, inter alia, that no ‘transgendered’ person should be able to be in the military, since he could not be allowed to have a weapon.

        Let me be clear here: if you look below your belt, and see a penis and testicles, but you think that you’re really a girl, you are delusional. Such is a denial of reality, and is a mental illness.

        With any luck, President Trump will get to replace Anthony Kennedy and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and put some people with common sense on the Supreme Court, people who will understand that the policies of the United States cannot be guided by people with think that Lola is actually a societal guide.

        • Jeffery says:

          While it makes sense to discriminate against people if it’s shown their characteristics impact their performance, e.g., blind or quadriplegic in combat, but the Conservative prohibitions against Blacks, gays and women were overturned as this will be.

          We understand your bigotry. It’s hard to live in America and not see it.

          Are you bothered by the freedoms that Blacks, gays, women, Muslims, immigrants and the transgendered have afforded you?

          • david7134 says:

            Jeff,
            The issue of accepting transgender people as normal is feeding their delusions. People like you do not understand that gender confused people are ill. I looked this up in recent medical articles and opinion and found that this is still treated as an illness.

          • Hoss says:

            Says the party of the Klan, Bull Connor, Don’t Ask – Don’t Tell, etc. You’re trying to sell historical revisionism that may work in your high school, but that’s where you should keep it.

  3. Jeffery says:

    Well someone has to fight the wars that Con Men support and encourage but are too afraid to fight.

  4. drowningpuppies says:

    And notice I don’t whine about my taxes.

    Just everything else but mostly white people.

  5. Jl says:

    So, what is Trump’s “vile ideology of hate”, now that you’ve decided that you can read someone else’s feelings?

  6. Hoss says:

    Let them serve. But, they can serve as the gender they were given at birth, and they don’t get to use the American taxpayer as the payee of their trans-ism. If they really want to serve they won’t mind, and God bless ’em. And if they find that unacceptable it’s because they want the taxpayer to pay for what should be considered an elective surgery. The bottom-line is that it’s a psychological condition that should be treated no different than asthma or any other ailment that is disqualifying.
