Thanks To The Trump Administration, The U.S. Military Will Not Become A Sex-Change Clinic

Bravo to President Trump and Defense Secretary James Mattis for making a common-sense decision and not being bullied into disastrous military policy by non-military voices.
The White House issued a memorandum late on March 23 authorizing Defense Secretary James Mattis to “exercise his authority to implement any appropriate policies concerning military service by transgender individuals.” Mattis has already made recommendations for what these policies will be:
Allowed: Transgender persons without a diagnosis of gender dysphoria may serve, “like all other Service members,” in their biological sex, providing they meet the usual standards for service.
Disqualified: Transgender persons who require or have undergone gender transition.
Disqualified, with exceptions: Those with gender dysphoria.
One notable exception to the last point is for those already serving. In effect, they are grandfathered in and “may continue to serve in their preferred gender and receive medically necessary treatment for gender dysphoria.” This speaks well of the administration advisory panel’s integrity to honor previously made commitments, as President Obama had allowed openly transgender soldiers to serve and required taxpayers to pay for their physical alterations.
As a former transgender person, I agree with these policies. Bravo to President Trump and Mattis for making a common-sense decision based on solid reasoning, and not being bullied into making disastrous military policy to pacify non-military voices.
