    Study: Military is ready for transgender troops

    Three retired U.S. generals added their names Tuesday to growing calls for the U.S. military to repeal its ban on transgender service members, arguing that doing so would not harm the armed forces’ readiness or require major changes to administrative or medical policies.In a joint statement, Maj. Gen. Gale S. Pollock, former acting surgeon general of the Army; Brig. Gen. Clara Adams Ender, former chief of the U.S. Army Nurse Corps; and Brig. Gen. Thomas A. Kolditz, a professor emeritus at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, said “allowing transgender personnel to serve openly is administratively feasible and will not be burdensome or complicated.”
    “Implementation could proceed immediately and will be successful in its execution,” they added.
    The comments accompanied the release of a report by the generals for the Palm Center, a think tank at San Francisco State University’s political science department, that looked at the policies of the 18 countries that do allow transgender military service as well as U.S. studies including the Pentagon’s own guidance on lifting “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell."
    The report notes that an estimated 15,500 transgender members are already serving in the military (PDF) just not openly, and that because Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has expressed openness to reviewing the ban last May, the U.S. is likely to join countries such as Australia, Germany, Israel and the U.K. that currently do allow transgender citizens to serve.

    So more Generals signing on that the military should remove the transgender ban. What do you guys think? Should transgender troops be allowed to serve openly in the US Military.

    Transgender uniforms:

    Millions and millions of dollars.

    New administrative structures to handle transgender personnel:

    More millions and millions of dollars.

    Increase in combat effectiveness:

    None.

    Having our enemies laugh us out of the room just so the Left can indulge in yet more Politically Correct nonsense:

    Priceless.

    How many transgender people are there in the country? How many are of the appropriate age to serve? How many of those are capable of satisfactorily performing the whatever physical and mental tasks that need to be performed? How many of those actually want to join the military? I'm guessing we're talking about an insignificant number of people - a few thousand if I had to guess. If catering to them means lots of money and organizational upset it hardly seems worth the effort.

    Beyond which, the simple fact of the matter is that the military is not supposed to be about catering to individualism. To the contrary, it is built around the goal of crushing individualism in order to promote good order and fighting discipline.

    There is no good reason whatsoever why we should make an exception to that rule for a bunch of confused flibbertigibbets who want to dress up and pretend like they're something they are not.

    The proud United States Military, now turned into an organzation for the Freak Brigade.

    The military is one of the last of America's institutions to be ruined by Obama and his whackadoodle ideals. Now he can check it off of his "Things to Destroy" list.
