Quote
"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"

Transgender people already serve in the military. It's not immediately clear how Trump intends to implement the ban, but the Pentagon announced Wednesday that it will defer enlistments by transgender applicants.

"Secretary [James] Mattis today approved a recommendation by the services to defer accessing transgender applicants into the military until Jan. 1, 2018," Chief Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said in a statement. "The services will review their accession plans and provide input on the impact to the readiness and lethality of our forces."

All applications by transpeople to serve in the military will be deferred until 2018 while the military "reviews" the costs. This is a remarkably shameful thing he's done here, and while I do understand the stance of not wanting to not only cover the cost of transitioning but also paying the salary and training for a person that effectively can't deploy and is in a downed medical status for months at a time, it's the sudden reversal after significant efforts have been made to welcome trans servicemembers that is embarrassing here. I'm sure Charlie and Das can attest to the same, but as someone currently serving I can guarantee you the military is barely accepting of gays, and the openness towards transpeople was an important step towards normalizing the entire LGBT community.

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
They'll just hide it like before. This really does nothing but throw out progress made towards the general acceptance of those suffering with gender dysphoria. Being non-deployable on medical for a few months is bullshit excuse. If that's gonna be used as a reason then we need to tell females that they can't get pregnant or else they'll be separated.

I don't see a problem with this. Don't ask don't tell was also a good policy in my opinion.

DADT was the governmental equivalent of holding your hands over your ears and screaming, "I CAN'T HEAR YOU LA LA LA LA LA". In practice it fostered an environment of discrimination with no possible consequence, and denied those servicemembers access to dependent benefits like healthcare, housing, pay, and moving services.

Ironically, Mattis is conveniently on vacation at the time of this announcement.

OT: It's a shitty, politicized decision that the Trump administration is throwing out for his base that only continues to show a trend where he has no interest in doing anything considered "moderate".

Though to be completely honest, this decision has Pence's stench on it far more than Trump. I'm not going to say he's supportive of LGBT rights, but he comes off as far more ambivalent than many others in his administration. He's just as shitty for going along with it.

Update: watching Trump's speech to the American Legion and someone shouted out at the end asking why Trump won't allow transgender people in the military and he looked really pissed off. The Fox host said it was extremely rude.

I'm confused.

A funding bill in the House that was set to give Trump money to build his border wall was close to failing, because of an issue over whether the Pentagon should offer money for sex reassignment surgeries.

Conveniently, the White House came to this decision shortly after

Don't ban them but don't allow them to speak about it.

Literally zero reasons to do this.

"The implication is that even in the most extreme scenario that we were able to identify … we expect only a 0.13-percent ($8.4 million out of $6.2 billion) increase in health care spending,” Rand's authors concluded."

So much for the money argument.

Tranny is a mental disorder. I don't trust them in combat roles or anything where my life depended on them.

If I'm not here, I'm doing Geology. Or I'm asleep. Or hungover. One of those three, anyway.

If you want nameplates or modified images for avatars, pm me to your heart's content. I may or may not ever get around to them, I'm lazy like that, but I'll get around to them at some point. Maybe.

A satirical take on the whole shenanigans, I think this kinda sums it up;

Quote
"Trump issued a total ban on them serving in any capacity, much to the anger of the LGBT community who stated that they were as entitled to die or get maimed for their country as the next person."

That's cool bro. Meanwhile I imagine more people echo my sentiments.  I'd have trusted a trans serviceman working on my aircraft if they knew their job.
