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.

Really? Borama still has time to take this nation further down before he goes....remember last Christmas with Obamacare? and he's not done yet.
Look what Clinton followers did before they left the Whitehouse....imagine what those there will do when they leave?
I do not share your idea our best days are ahead....I have hope we come out of this but the fact America is fast becoming anything but a Christian nation does not give me much hope that this fall from grace can be stopped any time soon...short of Gods hand intervening into this nations affairs.
Yes, we have an election ahead....but Romney certainly isn't going to do the trick, he'll betray us in a heartbeat as always...Perry will hand us over to the globalist agenda....Bachmans loosing her base fast and Cain, though a good man, simply hasn't governmental experience unless he runs with Newt who could offset that...and Palin has still not determined her path.
I personally do not think any of them truly want to take the fall when this nation goes down....and it may be Obama wins again for that reason..and rightfully takes the fall for destroying this nation.
Come on people! There aren’t millions of homosexuals beating down the doors at the recruiting stations to get in. The Democrats only wanted a few who needed healthcare for life as the “spouse” of a service member. Oh, and a few more to go to the basic training units to recruit for homosexuality. They’re afraid everyone will see what a big, fat lie they’ve told about all the homosexuals just waiting to get into the military. Have to keep the ball rolling now so no one looks at the truth.
Homosexual ACTIVISTs are NEVER satisfied. Because their lifestyle is so unsatisfying, I digress.
after transgender or in tandem. The next to make the front pages is Like Chiefs Clubs, Officers Clubs, Enlisted Clubs. Now military bases will be required to have a GAY CLUB. Just a matter of time.
Na, the solution is to just not consider gender for housing or training units. Just mix them all willy nilly......I’m sure the libtard womyns groups would be all for forcing women to shower with men.
No, they want to weaken and demoralize our military. The homosexuals & transgendered are just the useful idiots.
Okay, if they need SURGERY to correct this “condition,” it’s a defect. Defects are cause for denying enlistment. Idiots.
Everyday it seems we see more depressing trends , all pointing to the downfall of the country we grew up in. Hope ‘n Change, that’s what this so called president promised, and he’s delivering that in spades. Trouble is he’s giving the dregs of society hope, because he’s changing the country to suit them.
“Na, the solution is to just not consider gender for housing or training units. Just mix them all willy nilly......Im sure the libtard womyns groups would be all for forcing women to shower with men.”
Exactly. It’s past time for the feminazis to live in the logical conclusion of their philosophy.
With the way things are going, I figure the nudists are going to start screaming for the “right” to serve in the military naked any day now. “Clothed/Unclothed Equality Now!!!!” will be their cry.
This was an obvious progression that everyone knew was coming. But, really — how many transgenderals and cross dressers are going to line up to join the service? I kind of think this is a moot point.

Yeah, sounds like someone just made a bullseye for the Taliban...
Speaking of which, have we gotten Mullah OMar yet?
Sounds like why people say never to negotiate with terrorists.
It lists scores of medical conditions that make one ineligible, including: Current or history of psychosexual conditions, including but not limited to transsexualism, exhibitionism, transvestism, voyeurism, and other paraphilias.
So I guess when the homos get that verbiage eliminated, that will open up the door to pedophiles as well.
I just wonder when they are going to ban heterosexuality.
They will probably pass a law requiring the drafting of “transgendered” persons.
