Barrack Obama’s hand-picked, homosexual, ex-Army Chief Eric Fanning is angry that the new President isn’t going to expand his “experiment” to “transgender” applicants. Another sacred cow that the left thought had been accepted carte blanche just got torpedoed. But, it’s not a civil rights issue.

While the PC elite whips itself into a frenzy, trotting out former soldiers who have “reassigned their own gender” to wail and beat their surgically implanted breasts. “We’re not a distraction or a morale breaker” claim these malcontents, “A very professional unit with great leadership wouldn’t have a problem.” Whatever that means.
The problem with this argument is that President Trump is not instating, but rather, rolling back, another Obama social experiment—reinstituting the previous ban. There’s no evidence to support allowing this mess in the first place so, why does Trump have to disprove a false narrative as our commander-in-chief?
First, the American public doesn’t support it. A mere 20 percent according to Rasmussen. Second, congressional support is lacking. The Associated Press identifies 250 troops who “want to transition to the opposite of their biological gender.” Whatever that means. But, the Daily Signal reports it’s going to cost the military at least $3.7 billion over the next decade—almost 3 dozen, sorely needed F-35C strike fighters.
Finally, what do the rank and file military think? Other than the surgically-altered traitor Chelsea Manning, not so much. In the confidential Military Times/Institute for Veterans and Military Families’ poll conducted in December, 2016, David Freddoso reports that troops oppose mixed-gender combat units by two-to-one and transgender service members by more than three-to-one. Isn’t theirs the only opinion that should matter?
Retired Marine executive officer Mark Hewitt weighs in, “One of my first duties… was to sign the separation orders for 20 Marines…clinically diagnosed with having a ‘personality disorder.’ I smelled a rat.” Comparing the double-speak to Corporal Klinger from M*A*S*H, Hewitt assumed these Marines were simply trying to get a Section 8 psychiatric discharge. Ignoring his company psychiatrist’s “diagnosis”, he confronted the malcontents, read them their rights, and offered to charge them with filing a false statement.
Nineteen lazy Marines decided to come clean on the scam with only one actually having a serious psychological problem. That’s the reality of this nonsense. Do we really want people who deny their own biology in charge of “supersonic planes, nuclear submarines, thermonuclear missiles, artillery, and hundreds of other critical positions across the Department of Defense and the U.S. Coast Guard”?
Transgenderism is the current politically correct term. But, in 2015, Dr. Paul R. McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital, labeled it a mental disorder. Why? Because the reality is that “sex change” is simply “biologically impossible”! And, follow the logic—those who back “sexual reassignment” surgery are promoting a mental disorder. Truth is not subjective folks. One cannot reassign physiology. Not even in places like California, New Jersey, and Massachusetts, where psychiatrists are barred from “even with parental permission, striving to restore natural gender feelings to a transgender minor.”
Dr. McHugh reports that these enablers ignore studies that demonstrate 70-80 percent “of children who express transgender feelings spontaneously lose those feelings over time. Sex change is biologically impossible. People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.”
But, Obama waived his wand and it’s no longer a mental disorder? It’s not an issue of civil rights, it’s one of combat readiness and morale. If it walks like a duck…or, did the left throw that one away too?
