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.

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.

Yeah, sounds like someone just made a bullseye for the Taliban...

Speaking of which, have we gotten Mullah OMar yet?

The author said that each time the liberals won something, they demanded more, and then more. There is no end to what they’ll demand.

Sounds like why people say never to negotiate with terrorists.

Transgenders are not banned by law, but rather by a Defense Department instruction, “Medical Standards for Appointment, Enlistment or Induction in the Military Service.”

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.
