President Trump has just repealed the ban on Transgender people serving in the Military. It has caused a massive uproar in the MSM and Social Media, but everyone seems to be missing the point. They are engaged in a battle of anger and cries of “bigotry”, but the reality is that even though the economic argument doesn’t make much sense, there are very good reasons why it is not wise for transgender folk to serve.

  1. The suicide rate for veterans is around 20 souls per day…That’s high! And if you add in the fact that around 40% of transgendered people will try to commit suicide anyway, it’s a recipe for disaster. We do not want people who are suicidal on the front lines; it’s a danger to EVERYONE! And when they finish their service, what will be the suicide rate then?
  2. Hormones. Many trans people undergo hormone therapy. You do not want people with hormone imbalances making decisions in a dangerous situation. Hormones impact mood, behavior and ultimately actions.

The cost of medical treatments for transgendered people is not high in the scale of the military budget: estimates suggest less than $10 million for every single one. But there are very good, solid reasons why Trump’s ban is the right move.

President Trump announced on Wednesday that transgender people will not be allowed to serve in the US military.

“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you.”

 Secretary of Defense James Mattis called for a 6-month delay of transgender recruitment earlier in the year. The enlistment of new recruits does not affect transgender troops. Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said that Mattis make the decision on Friday.

According to the Associated Press, Mattis said the following in a memo: “After consulting with the service chiefs and secretaries, I have determined that it is necessary to defer the start of accessions for six months. We will use this additional time to evaluate more carefully the impact of such accessions on readiness and lethality.”

Of course, Hollywood has started freaking out. Check this out.

There are 15,000 patriotic transgender Americans in the US military fighting for all of us. What happened to your promise to fight for them?

Here’s George Takei AKA that-guy-that-was-on-Star-Trek-that-everyone-forgot-about-and-who-tries-so-damn-hard-to-remain-relevant.

Here’s what Ellen DeGeneres said. Blah.

We should be grateful to the people who wish to serve, not turn our backs on them. Banning transgender people is hurtful, baseless and wrong

Here’s Samantha (wanna-be-John Stewart) Bee.

After consultation with our staff, here is our current statement regarding @POTUS‘s transgender service tweets. “F*CK YOU.”

Let’s be honest. Who cares. The only thing our military should focus its money and time on his protecting this country and winning every fight put in front of it. God bless our troops.

Share this everywhere if you are so proud that Trump is removing all that crap that Obama tried to force into our military.

It’s a fighting force, not a pet project… for Christ’s sake.
