With homosexuals now able to serve openly in the military, the gay rights movements next battleground is to persuade the Obama administration to end the armed forces ban on transgenders, a group that includes transsexuals and cross-dressers.
Our position is that the military should re-examine the policy, the medical regulations, so as to allow open service for transgender people, said Vincent Paolo Villano, spokesman for the 6,000-member Center for Transgender Equality.
The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN), which pushed to end the militarys gay ban, is urging President Obama to sign an executive order prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity.
It had wanted the order to happen on Sept. 20, the official date dont ask, dont tell, as the gay ban was called, ended via repeal legislation signed by Mr. Obama.
SLDNs goal is contained on a Web page with the headline, Working toward transgender military service. The page states that a decision to remove the ban must be made at the Pentagon. Relationships between transgender organizations, medical associations, and military allies will be crucial for advancing this issue, it says.

Someone ping me when he allows polygamy in the military.
Obama introduced a cancer into the US military. And it will continue spreading.
Forget slippery slope! Like another FReeper said, they’re not even stopping to celebrate.
This is what is meant when we are told not to give into the demands of the perverse. These are the same barbarians who brought down Rome from within.
To preserve our way of life; to preserve the meaning of humanity under the scope of Christianity; to maintain the integrity of our fighting forces; and for downright common decency, we cannot let this happen to us.
Start out with something "reasonable" like "All we want is our own section in restaurants" and look where that has gone.
I’m thinking free sex-change operations in military hospitals. It gives a whole new meaning to “Be All You Can Be”.
It’s not pedophiles, it’s “intergenerational attraction”. Let’s all strive to be sensitive and inclusive and innovative and forward-thinking and progressive and blah, blah, blah.
“Klinger was decidedly not transgendered. He was spoofing, trying to get a section eight ticket out of Korea ... in the TV show.
There was an episode when a pyschiatrist was going to grant Klinger a discharge he just had to agree he was a homosexual. He never wore the dress again!
LOL.....how insensitive of me. I’ll sign myself up for some sensitivity programming......er......training, immediately!
Up next...Beasts of the Field! We can’’t leave beast-o-philes out of the party can we?
They’re all including in transgender/transsexual because even they cannot agree on how to identify what they are.
Bottom line...they’re all disfunctional and abbynormal.
Activists demand end to military ban on groups who want to blow up Pentagon with remote-controlled model airplanes
What makes anyone think the next step isn’t they’ll be asking to bring along their pet sheep? They are so predictable.
What idiocy is this?
Yep and our politicians are helping this nation to collapse.
The US is under a cloud of deception as no other time in history and it's going to get worse
Interesting is, as recorded, any time a nation has turned it's back on God they are 'invaded'...and it isn't always by a military force.
When that Texas goat roper shows up for active duty with his nanny, sorry Tiger, will he be able to get proper housing.
Same damn thing happening with pet owners, claiming that a dang pet is a comfort animal. Pure BS.
I think a Christian doctrine being part of the community discourse is critical to returning us to a nation of dominance.
Enough of this “guilt America” bullshit, too. I’m proud to be part of a nation that eschews the idea of open homosexuality in our military. We are meant to be a nation of men. Men of might, not men in tights! What’s next, replacing the military barber and clippers with a butch scissor-shaker named Todd? “The Taliban will LOVE this cut, I promise.”
Our best days are ahead of us, but we, as a nation, have to speak up against what our government is doing to us in the name of political correctness. Sit down, shut up, work, eat, play, sleep, consume. Not for me, thanks!
‘Give them an inch and they want a mile’...This was so predictable.
It’s like the destruction of traditional marriage.....What’s next? Marriage between blood relatives? Muslim men saying their religious freedom to have up to 4 wives is being violated?
The repeal of DADT opened the closet door and now they will attempt to dismantle the entire ‘house’......OMG *
