Commission Finds ‘No Compelling Medical Reason’ To Exclude Transgender Americans From Military
CBS San Francisco ^ | 3/13/14

Posted on 03/13/2014 2:34:00 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

An independent commission led by a former U.S. surgeon general has concluded there “is no compelling medical reason” for the U.S. armed forces to prohibit transgender Americans from serving and that President Barack Obama could lift the decades-old ban without approval from Congress, according to a report being released Thursday.

The report said Department of Defense regulations designed to keep transgender people from joining or remaining in the military on the grounds of psychological and physical unfitness are based on outdated beliefs that require thousands of current service members either to leave the service or to forego the medical procedures and other changes that could align their bodies and gender identities.

I’m not about to click the link. Any chance the former Surgeon General is Jocelyn Elders?

One step toward that awakening is Operation American Spring: May 16, 2014 Washington DC.

Savage seemed to be the only host with the balls to tackle this head on. Trannies in the military. Al Qaeda are TERRIFIED!

:: no compelling medical reason ::

This means the the military ^must^ provide testosterone and estrogen injects/pharma to maintain the soldier’s personal choice of gender assignment.

Pardon me general, but I choose to ingest a quart of whisky each day. The military should supply that to me...

Wait a minute-those who have had a surgical sex change must take hormones to keep up the appearance of being the opposite gender. I really doubt that those would be readily available in Afghanistan, Iraq, or wherever else there is combat-so how in the hell are these soldiers to be considered deployable? This sounds like a crock to me...

Klinger was trying to get out of the Army by cross dressing only Col. Potter wasn’t buying & that’s what made it comedy.

Muich worse are the recent rash of gay “weddings” in full uniform on active duty. That’s the real disease.

What’s called for now is a few unsolved barracks incidents involving queers and/or trannies. Bad incidents.

We have brought this on ourselves. We have become a silly culture, society, and country. We will be severely hurt for our infantile behavior and, probably, many will die.

Unfortunately, we will have deserved it.

An “independent commission” filled with far left radicals says there is no compelling reason? Why am I skeptical that the outcome was a foregone conclusion before they ever “studied” the possibility?

Put ‘em in an interrogations unit.

Love the idea of a muzzie realizing that they are about to be questioned by a shemale.

Anyone who looks at their sex organs and thinks that they are “wrong”, is mentally ill and does NOT need to be in the military.

I wish that someone could give me just one compelling reason why a homo, cross-dresser, transvestite or transgendered individual should be allowed to serve in our military.

Just one.

No problem, they will just give them all waivers from combat and the choice of their assignments.

Does a military member no longer have to be deployable? I was not aware the rules had changed. Many physically able members are still discharged against their will for even service related injuries and illness that require drugs, devices or treatment because technically it makes them non-deployable...

Outdated? No, they’re not outdated at all. Just at this point, people lack the moral courage to say anything in unacceptable or off limits. Except being a smoker or a Judeo-Christian, that is. Soon it will be extended to people who are straight.

They’ve discovered that this is the only way they’ll ever get a “female” into a combat position.

They estimate there are >15,000 Transgenders in the armed forces. 15,000, isn’t that about 1% of active duty members. There is no way there are that many, that would mean there are over 3,000,000 transgenders nationwide. Just pushing an agenda.

For such an incident to be reported,

Somebody has to call 911 or the MP desk sergeant. The CQ notes initial details in his log.

The commander has to be notified so he can report it up the chain of command.

CID will be called in probably by the battalion commander.

If it involves a `protected class’ (faggies or trannies) the IG will get involved and the family members will no doubt request their Congressthing to investigate. The post commander & his protocol officer will soon be up to their buttplate in VIPs demanding answers.

Very messy indeed and all this will happen unless the body is emplaced somewhere other than inside the barracks. A division-sized installation has training areas, ranges, & bivouac sites with trails that have been there for generations, with soil, sand, or clay that is regularly churned during convoys or tracked vehicle movement.

Since disappearance does not always indicate death, the potential for a case to grow cold is considerable.

I don’t have a problem with the LGBTQB crowd joining the military as long as they are a separate unit in each force drilled and prepared by one of their own and always goes in first in combat situations. I think Jocelyn Elders should be the first to command this elite group and should lead the charge.
