Pentagon Announces Plan Aimed at Lifting Transgender Ban

From the article:

The Pentagon’s current regulations banning transgender individuals from serving in the military are outdated, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Monday, ordering a six-month study aimed at formally ending one of the last gender- or sexuality-based barriers to military service.


Military leaders have pointed to the gradual — and ultimately successful — transition after the ban on gays serving openly in the military was lifted in 2011. Although legislation repealing that ban passed Congress in late 2010, the military services spent months conducting training and reviews before the decision actually took effect the following September.

I think I’d like to know who these so-called “military leaders” are and talk to them and then…speak to to the average “straight” person who is serving in the military. Is the lifting of the ban on gays serving openly in the military really successful?

I wonder if there’s any disconnect there?

I just thought of something…people who are transgender, never go through menopause. So, will the military / Pentagon pay for a lifetime of hormone therapy?

Lastly….when a person is trans-gender…is the body at odds with the brain or is the brain at odds with the body?  Hmm…
