President Trump, Do Not Turn The Military Into A Federally Funded Sex Change Clinic

The military is not the place to advance a 'politically correct' experiment with cross-gender hormone therapy on troops and veterans.
The generally accepted treatment program for gender dysphoria begins with administering cross-sex hormones to feminize or masculinize appearance and to improve mental health. The trouble is, no scientifically strenuous studies have been done to assure the effectiveness and safety of this practice, and people with gender issues are being harmed.
One of these people is Jamie Shupe, retired Sergeant First Class from the U.S. Army. His story of emotional and physical trauma from cross-sex hormone treatment illustrates the sometimes unforeseen consequences of the still-experimental cross-sex hormone therapy prescribed for gender dysphoria.
In his words: “I am a transgender person that has suffered my entire life from gender dysphoria. In early 2013, I regretfully allowed the medical establishment to not only convince me that I am a female, but also to lead me to believe that I could successfully gain female appearance characteristics by taking high doses of female hormones. My four years of treatments and their side effects were paid for by the military health care system.”
For over four decades, gender experts have recommended cross-sex hormone therapy to treat those patients who feel they should be the other sex, yet rigorous studies of the effects or efficacy of using powerful hormones in this “off-label” way are lacking. Transgender individuals, adult and children, are being experimented upon, with the full involvement and consent of transgender health care providers.
