Trans Mission Problem

This actually makes way more sense than the Left wants to admit.

Donald Trump has issued an unsubtle new policy decision on Twitter, which could pretty much be the opening line of every news story we’re likely to see over the next four years.

In this case, he announced that transsexuals would no longer be allowed to join or serve in the military, and the Left is going out of its collective mind. This is hatred! Bigotry! Some kind of blatant sexism which is admittedly hard to define!

To which we say: baloney.

We’re not going to get into debating whether or not transsexuals are good people or bad people, patriotic or not, or which latrine they should use – because none of that is germane to the argument. What is germane is whether or not transsexuals have medical conditions and special needs which are unduly burdensome when it comes to the military branches completing their missions. And the answer is: yes, they do.

This is the same rationale which keeps many, many others with chronic medical conditions out of the military. And we’ll note that this does not keep motivated individuals from finding alternate ways to serve their country or communities.

Despite attempts to make this into a broader LGBT issue, it’s worth noting that Trump hasn’t banned gays or lesbians from service. He’s not concerned about someone’s sexual orientation, he’s concerned about their physical ability to complete missions – including at times when their medical conditions can’t be treated in the field, potentially putting others at risk.
