Well while it does simplify bathroom construction and identification, it will surely trigger some kind of snowflake meltdown.

Finally some reason is returning. The mentally ill shouldn't be in the military anyway.

I'd like to think Jane or John Doe are serving in our military.

Not Jane who used to be John or vice versa.

Saying this in respect to trans individuals whom chosen the other side.
Stay on that side and out of the US military.
The End

The sole purpose of the military must be to protect the nation.

The sole purpose of LEO should be to protect the citizens.

Social restructuring has no place in either.

President Trump is correct. At least until another left wing judge strikes this one down.

Good. The mentally ill shouldn't be the military. People who think they are the opposite sex, dress as the opposite sex and have themselves surgically modified to look like the opposite sex are mentally ill. If someone thought he was a duck, made himself look like a duck and had him surgically modified to look like a duck then everybody would agree that person is mentally ill.But when it comes to people pretending the opposite sex the loony left somehow thinks that is normal.

Boy was that a joke.

So do transgender soldiers currently serving get discharged or what?

"Cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical cost and disruption". Agree with DJT and Generals.

Don't know. Mad Dog never thought it was a good idea. He delayed implementation. There probably won't be that many discharges.

Ahh, now then.
The ACLU are already on this, as well as Lambda Legal.

As soon as Trump made his announcement, the American Civil Liberties Union called for transgender service members to contact its lawyers for help.
