LGBTQ Alert: Trump Bans Transgender People Serving in the Military

The LGBTQ will be up in arms or some other body part over President Trump’s latest move.

As if the Ts of the LGBTQ want to actually fight, President Trump has banned the transgendered from joining the ranks of America’s fighting men and women.

As The Blaze reported,

In a series of tweets Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump announced a ban on transgender people serving in the U.S. military “in any capacity”:

After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you

The president’s abrupt — and unforeseen — policy shift comes after the chiefs of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines requested a six-month delaybefore instituting a policy that would have allowed transgender people to enlist in the armed services.

Under former Defense Secretary Ash Carter, the military was set to begin accepting transgender service members on July 1 as the result of an Obama-era policy established in June 2016.

When the military leaders requested the delay, they argued that more time was needed to study the issue and determine the impact such a change would have on the readiness of the forces.

Don’t think the Left won’t have a field day with a declaration that affects what, dozens of people?

Did I miss something and suddenly transsexuals no longer want to do cabarets and have become warriors?

President Trump just saved taxpayers millions of dollars. Instead of providing superior weaponry for our troops, leftists choose to squander money on nonsense LGBTQ training. And you can bet this “training” would eventually be mandated for everything else in society.

To put this legislation in perspective, let’s look at the numbers.

The projected active duty end strength in the armed forces for FY 2017 was 1,281,900 people. There are an additional 801,200 people in the seven reserve components. As it stands, there are roughly 250 service members in the process of transitioning.

So using only the active duty military numbers, this legislation impacts less than 0.02 percent of the military. Why in the hell would we even debate something so trivial?

The article continues,

It is not yet clear how Trump’s policy announcement will impact those already in the military.

The president’s shift comes not long after the Army announced that embattled transgender Pvt. Chelsea Manning will remain on active duty after being released from a federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas, on May 17.

At the time, it was reported that Manning, who was born male, would receive military benefits — including health care.

In the final days of his administration, former President Barack Obama commuted Manning’s prison sentence. The 29-year-old soldier previously served as an intelligence analyst in Iraq before being sentenced to 35 years in prison for leaking thousands of classified and sensitive documents to WikiLeaks in 2013.

Given their numbers, he can’t trust transsexuals.

Let’s face it, if you want to change your God-given gender, you have issues. And now we want these people fighting for our freedoms?! The military is difficult enough without having to learn new pronouns. Moreover, it’s time to stop the “wussification” of our military.
