Joe Biden and the Marxist left are turning the US military into a woke social experiment as China promotes masculinity to their young males.
Defense officials on Wednesday said the Pentagon is reversing Trump-era policies that banned transgender people from serving in the military.
The Pentagon will also issue new rules that will broaden transgender people’s access to medical care and gender transition surgery.
How does this increase our military’s combat readiness?
Associated Press reported:
The Pentagon on Wednesday swept away Trump-era policies that largely banned transgender people from serving in the military, issuing new rules that offer them wider access to medical care and assistance with gender transition.
The new department regulations allow transgender people who meet military standards to enlist and serve openly in their self-identified gender, and they will be able to get medically necessary transition-related care authorized by law, chief Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told reporters during a briefing.
The new rules also prohibit discrimination based on gender identity. Their release Wednesday coincides with International Transgender Day of Visibility, and they will take effect in 30 days. Kirby said that will give the military services the time they need to update their policies and provide guidance to commanders.
Stephanie Miller, the director of military accession policy, told reporters “the number of service members who self-identify as transgender could range from 1,000 to 8,000, including those who may not seek treatment. Other studies have said the total could be as high as 14,700.” AP reported.
