The Pentagon Has Shut The Democrat Push For A Transgender Military Down!
When people join the military as I did and so many others have done throughout the years they get shown that the military wants things to be the same as humanly possible.
It’s why when you go through basic training that they shave the heads of every male and cut the hair of every female to a reasonable level.
They want everything to be the same because quite frankly it’s just easier to house people according to two categories than it would be seven or eight.
That is seemingly what the push to allow transgender military personnel has been upsetting. Just the housing issue alone when it comes to letting transgenders serve would cause. Just look at the living situation aboard naval vessels for example.
There you have berthing spaces for men and women. Say you have a guy that decides he feels pretty all of a sudden and they allow that person to sleep in the women’s berthing. It puts every woman there in grave danger.
This is one of those things where people need to realize that the military should be allowed to have different rules than the rest of American society because they have to operate at a much higher level and in severely different living conditions.
Top Democrat and GOP members of the House Armed Services Committee ducked and dodged when a Pentagon official said the sex of transgender soldiers is decided by their biology, not by their claimed “gender identity.”
Service members who claim to be transgender can serve if they meet military standards — but they will be treated like other members of their biological sex, said James Stewart, the acting head of personnel at the Pentagon. The policy was set by President Donald Trump in 2018, and it reversed pro-transgender policies set by former President Barack Obama.
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) had invited five transgender service members to shame Stewart with their individual stories at the hearing:
I’m truly astonished by your presentation, I must say. You’ve just had the opportunity to listen to five transgender service members — 10, 15 years [in service], many of them leaders, many of them deployed multiples times — can you honestly tell us that their service is any less valuable than those of their peers?
Stewart responded, saying, “We have transgenders out there serving in their biological sex, meeting the [training and health] standards.”
The answer caused Speier to reveal she wanted the Pentagon to enforce the progressives’ political claim that people’s sex is determined by their “gender identity,” not by their biology:
So much like “don’t ask, don’t tell,” you could serve if you are transgender, but you only will be able to serve in your birth gender [biological sex]. So you are going to have to hide the fact that you are transgender. You’re not going to be able to transition [be recognized as an opposite-sex person]. That is a policy that belongs in the Dark Ages, not in a military of the 21st century.
“Transgender troops have the right to serve as their full selves,” she insisted.
Speier also tried to hide the core ideological dispute under simpler questions of fairness and therapy for individual people, saying Trump’s policy is unjustified and malicious.
Medical treatment should resolve any Pentagon concerns about “gender dysphoria,” she told Stewart, adding, “How could you possibly deny that individual the opportunity to serve if they want to? … [After medical treatment] they don’t have ‘gender dysphoria’ anymore; they’ve taken care of it.”
The transgender ideology demands that the federal government force Americans to accept the unscientific and risky claim that people can freely switch their male or female sex by simply declaring they have the “gender identity” of an opposite-sex person. If adopted by Congress or the Supreme Court, the policy would effectively outlaw Americans’ popular recognition in law and culture that the two sexes are different and complementary.
