New pentagon transgender policy limits service members to birth gender

Trump's War on Transgenders Marches On

With all legal hurdles cleared, the pentagon has instituted a new transgender policy that largely limits the military service of transgender persons currently in uniform to their birth gender. If they are unwilling to do so, they could be discharged.

Transgender service members currently serving in the military will only be allowed to continue to serve if they adhere to the dress and grooming standards of their biological gender. Waivers will be allowed on a case-by-case basis but only from the secretaries in charge of the military services.

  1. "Don't ask/ don't tell" all over again.

  2. I'm waiting to see if they extend this screwed up policy to those of us that are receiving care at the VA

  3. Well, the orange menace continues to be "the president" exclusively to his base supporters. Let's join with the majority of our citizens to make sure this menace serves just one term. It'll probably take the next president 2-3 years just to undo the mess he's already created.

  4. Hey. Not to be a bitch but you should say "transgender individuals" as opposed to "transgenders"
    . Transgender is an adjective. You can't pluralize an adjective. I'm really not to come down on you, but some of us find it dehumanizing.

    1. Sorry you feel dehumanized, but you're wrong! For example, take the adjective "gay," make it plural and you have the noun "gays."
