A Washington DC judge has ruled Trump's transgender ban in the military is illegal. So all who want a free transgender operation can join the military and get one.
This should be interesting.
Does this apply to veterans? Or have they always had this option?
So what good is it for the POTUS to be CiC of the military if any civilian judge can overpower his decisions? Should this be a question for the military courts? Can the military court over rule the CiC?
USN, ret (and glad to be out of it now )
Does it matter on the battlefield?
It doesn't take balls to shoot a gun. And not all jobs in the military take one to the battlefield. So is this question even meaningful?
It's not the free op that worries me so much as all the pc crap that everyone else in the military is required to comply with.
Exactly, the stuff about no one can be different than anyone else or no one can have an opinion of any other that is less than wonderful gets really old, really quickly.
By the same token; if a guy wants his parts cut off or a girl wants her parts cut off, so be it, if they can perform military functions under duress, go for it.
I served with a couple guys in the 1960's when such was just BARELY tolerated in civil life who were very capable young men, good at their jobs and very discrete about their homosexuality but they were known as closet gays by more than a few, they got caught up by an ass wype who must have been jealous so they were separated from the military adminstratively (I will give the Coast Guard credit, they were not run out on a rail) and life went on.
I DO question the hatred for those not just like themselves we see so often. Most often from supposed Christians or those of lower educational status.
I hear that. Welcome to the forum.

The military is not known for saints or scholars.
