Right now, a recruit can be denied entry because he has flat feet and custom inserts are too much of a burden for the military medical system. But another guy who wants to turn his penis into a vagina, along with years of hormone therapy, facial reconstruction surgery, breast augmentation surgery, and assignment to non-demanding positions so that they can attend therapy and have ample time to live in the “gender of their choice” for a few hours a day is perfectly fine? We’re denying a person entry because orthotic shoe inserts make them non-deployable, but years and years of hormones, therapy, and surgeries is acceptable? And while these “war fighters” are getting their FREE medical care, the non-transgender ones are deployed at a faster rate, burning them out mentally and physically?
And imagine the stress it puts on other service members – a soldier is done with a rough assignment overseas and wants to move to a U.S. fort for a tour but can’t because that “easier” position was given to a transsexual so they can have their time to have multiple surgeries and therapy. Or a sailor has done four or five years at sea and wants to rotate to an ashore command, but there’s no openings because they’re being given to transgenders who “need them more.”
No, we are not safer at all. Considering the limited military budget, I would say it’s making us LESS safe since we’re spending the little funds our military does get to virtue signal about how much we care about LGBT issues.
How about we stop being worried about having a woke and inclusive military and instead let the military spend what little money the Democrats give it on enhancing it’s lethality?
