Up until a few years ago, the myth that is “transgenderism” was considered a mental illness.
Mental health is a serious issue and those that suffer from these problems should be cared for appropriately. That’s called being compassionate.
But thanks to the Left, instead of getting treatment, they’re celebrating the disease, and not only that, they’re calling anyone who calls it a disease (like many doctors) ignorant bigots.
Furthermore, despite being a fraction of a percent of the population, the media acts like every third person is gay or transgendered.
They even support pumping children with hormones and mutilating them, even though all evidence shows that the overwhelming majority of these confused kids gets over it with time.
Talk about science-deniers.
The Left’s propaganda aside, Trump recently banned transgenders from openly serving in the military, a wise move that surprised many.
Predictably, leftists are raged at the decision. But what is surprising is the reaction of some military officials, who seem poised to ignore the president’s order altogether.
As reported at the Independent Journal Review, at a Center for Strategic and International Studies event in DC, Adm. Paul Zukunft told attendees that U.S. Coast Guard officials have reached out to transgender service members to reaffirm their support in light of President Donald Trump’s transgender ban.
“The first thing we did is we reached out to all 13 members of the Coast Guard who have come out” as transgender, Zukunft said, according to The Hill.
Zukunft said he contacted Lt. Taylor Miller, who felt “mortified and embarrassed” after Trump’s announcement, according to a story in The Washington Post.
“If you read that story, Taylor’s family has disowned her,“ Zukunft explained.
”And I told Taylor, I will not turn my back. We have made an investment in you and you have made an investment in the Coast Guard and I will not break faith.”
Zukunft, who is also the commandant of the Coast Guard, mentioned that he has reached out to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly about the issue, and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has been involved as well.
Trump has stood by his decision, saying it was the result of consultation with “my Generals and military experts.” However, it took many by surprise, including Mattis and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford.

While Trump did announce the order, it won’t take effect until the White House sends an official directive, which hasn’t happened yet.
Hopefully, the president won’t bow to pressure and will make this official immediately. The military is for winning wars and protecting the homeland, not some social experiment for the Left to test out all their insane policies.
The mental health issues in the military are already a huge problem that hasn’t been addressed yet. Adding another layer to it won’t help anything.
Political correctness has no place in the armed forces and we’ve already heard from many armed service members who agree.
This just can’t keep happening.
