On Thursday, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced a major change in Military policy that in effect turns the entire armed forces into a giant social experiment.
Carter lifted the ban of openly transgender people serving in the military. “This is the right thing to do for our people and for the force,” Carter said. “We’re talking about talented Americans who are serving with distinction or who want the opportunity to serve. We can’t allow barriers unrelated to a person’s qualifications prevent us from recruiting and retaining those who can best accomplish the mission.”
The new change in policy is more of the same from the Obama administration. Within the past several years, Obama has made a major push to enact his LGBT agenda across the country. Only this time, his policy affects both the effectiveness of the military and the American taxpayer.
Transgender people in the military will now be eligible for gender transition surgery and according to Breitbart, the bill for the elective gender reassignment procedure will be forced onto the taxpayers.
The military is supposed to a fearsome and effective force for defending the country and eliminating our enemies, not a social safe-space. There is no word yet on how this new policy will play out in a war zone in regards to bathrooms and sleeping arrangements.
