Transgender Soldiers Might Not Exactly Strike Fear…


Family Research Council: Trans Formers: Mattis Delays Radical Troop Makeover

July 05, 2017

Only 23 percent of America thought the military should start enlisting transgenders on July 1 — and fortunately, Defense Secretary James Mattis wasn’t one of them. With a buzzer-beating memo, the military boss made the eleventh hour decision to postpone the move for six months — to the relief of conservatives and troops across the country.

After an intense internal debate, the service chiefs can finally exhale about an Obama-era policy they worried would crumble morale, readiness, and retention. 

I’m not saying that transitioning from one gender to another makes one useless to the military. On the other hand, perhaps we should stick to individuals who are sure of their sexuality, have not taken mood-altering hormones, and who don’t imagine themselves in pretty things.

Just one ‘Merican’s opinion.

One Response to Transgender Soldiers Might Not Exactly Strike Fear…

    The pharmaceutical needs are a concern, especially for combat roles. It can be difficult to bring enough food and water to a war. Bringing meds (diabetes, blood pressure, hormones) is even more difficult and expensive. Further, given that the military has (foolishly) often had different physical performance standards based on gender, to which standard will trans soldiers have to comply?

    This isn’t the same as desegregating the armed forces. Whether black or white, a soldier has the same caloric requirements. It isn’t the same as allowing gay soldiers. Whether gay or straight, a soldier still has the same loadout in a pack.
