Trans Military Neutering
President Trump today in a series of mid-morning Tweets said that going forward transgender individuals will no longer be allowed to serve in the Unites States Military. The unexpected Tweets sent some members of the media into an immediate feeding frenzy as you would expect.
The estimates of the number of so-called transgendered people serving in the military vary wildly from a few hundred to over 100,000. By the way I don’t believe for a second that the number is anywhere near 100,000 and would be inclined to believe the number is in fact very small relative to the number of people who currently work in the armed forces.
One number that did seem likely to be accurate was the number of current military members seeking sex re-assignment. That number is placed at 250. Taxpayers would be on the hook for all of these costs if the policy put in place by the Obama Administration were allowed to remain. If there are 250 people seeking sexual re-assignment surgery and therapy the estimated cost would be around $15 Million dollars.
I am quite sure today there is a Federal Judge somewhere within the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals jurisdiction working on a brief to strike down the Presidents effort to take the social experimenting out of the military. It will happen fast, trust me.
