Soldiers are supposed to be strong, not in Obama’s military, though. After the president’s final “trans-formation” of our armed forces was complete, by allowing transgenders to serve, weakness is in, apparently.
On July 1st, the Defense Department made this announcement:
Today, the Department of Defense is ending the ban on transgender Americans serving in the United States military:
Effective immediately, transgender Service members may serve openly, and they can no
longer be discharged or otherwise separated from the military solely for being
The announcement further stated that beginning October 1st, 2016:
The Military Health System will be required to provide transgender Service members
with all medically necessary care related to gender transition, based on the guidance that
Service members will be able to begin the process to officially change their gender in our
personnel management systems.
That’s right. The military will pay for sex change operations for those who deem themselves to be the opposite gender than the one they were at birth.
Here’s the kicker. Once an individual has completed their sex change, they will officially be classified as being the gender they were “changed” to.
If a man has a sex change operation to become a “woman,” the “woman” will no longer be required to take the Physical Fitness Test designed for males. The new “woman” will only be required to pass the fitness tests designed for females.
On top of that, transgenders will be required to use the bathrooms, and shower facilities for their new gender.
The Service member is responsible for meeting all applicable military
standards in the preferred gender and will use berthing, bathroom, and shower facilities
associated with their gender.
Women who were formerly “men” will be showering with… actual women.
So there you have it. In a time when Obama has weakened our military more than any other point in history, he’s making it even weaker by not requiring former “men” to pass the men’s physical fitness tests.
Hardly a motivation to “be all you can be.”
I’m not sure even R. Lee Ermey could stomach Obama’s new “modern” force! Get back in there, Ermey! We need you!
