He sites the both the medical cost and the disruption they purportedly would burden the military with.
He cries about a witch hunt all the time, but couldn't he have just started one? No discussion on concerns that even some LGBTQI+ allies *might* think could be reasonable (those who take daily hormones, maybe, if they are, what, distracted and more focused on missing those meds then that they are on the front lines in the middle of a war zone?). Just straight out ban the transgendered.
Are we going to get more on this policy than three tweets?
- What about people who come to the realization that they are (or might be) transgender while in the military? Respect and treatment? (Like they do for some military with diabetes, depending on fitness to serve). Or Automatic discharge for telling someone? Honourable, dishonourable, medical?
What if a *vet* comes to such a realization? Unlike other medical treatments, will vets who are transgender not get treatment?
- If the draft ever comes up again how will the determine if a person is being honest about being transgender?
- What is the military policy on people who are intersex and how, and why, does it differ from the policy on people who are transgendered? One might be able to argue from a treatment perspective (depending on the condition), but "disruption"..., which I assume is code for gender segregation, and unit cohesion and the sensitive moral of these puported tough military types.
