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.

Didn’t see this one coming...
Y’know, we get laughed at about “slippery slope” theories. But every time, we get proven right.
How long before they demand pedophiles be allowed to serve ‘openly’?
Pedophiles and goat humpers too gogo!
You know just when I thought I couldn’t get any more upset about this.....here it is!!!!!!!
They don’t even stop or slow down to celebrate their victories any more.....
Max Klinger approves.
I read an article today titled, Liberals always go too far. The author said that each time the liberals won something, they demanded more, and then more. There is no end to what theyll demand.
Klinger was decidedly not transgendered. He was spoofing, trying to get a section eight ticket out of Korea ... in the TV show.
They trying to get some freak beat to death? Again?
Up next, “open service” for cross-dressers, paedophiles, folks shagging their relatives...
"Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father's model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday." --Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky
Next thing, they’ll demand that all uniforms be 100% gender-neutral, that all barracks have latrine accomodations for males, females, and those who cannot decide.... Tricare will be forced to pay for gender-changing hormones, surgeries, and psychological help....
Ok, I knew that.
Blind, cripple? "There's a place for you in the US Air Force".
Foreign natioanl? "Chinese, Ugandan, Peruvian - come aboard the US Navy - we've got a berth for you"!
It’s about time someone addressed the anguished cries of legions of transgenders just chomping at the bit to join the military.
