In the past 3 days President Trump managed to really spool up the left..
That basically sums up my opinion. The same community that can't stand him and already hate him with a visceral passion....He can't ratchet the pain more to those people than he already does.
So anyway He says "No to the Transgender" crowd on serving and I and a lot of veterans and active duty people agree with the new policy. The Armed service is supposed to be an instrument to hurt people and break things, not there for social engineering policies.
Gender dysphoria is classified as a disorder under dual role
transvestism in the 2017 ICD-10 CM GID was reclassified to gender
dysphoria by the DSM-5.
Studies indicate that transgender people
have an extremely high rate of suicide attempts; one study of 6,450
transgender people in the United States found 41% had attempted suicide,
compared to a national average of 1.6%.
Transgender people are also at heightened risk for certain mental
disorders. Banning people based on mental disorders is just common
sense, these are jobs that entail exposure to extreme stress and life
and death situations and that's just in training.
Please show me where serving in the military is a constitutionally
protected right. This is not discrimination, its an employers ability to
establish minimum standards for employment. Its another disqualifying
factor for initial entry such as bad knees, poor eye sight, or diagnosed
mental conditions. Would I go to war with a transgender person, answer
depends on the person, has nothing to do with the gender identity. There
is always an exception to every situation.
