Supreme Court allows transgender military ban to go into effect.
The Supreme Court allowed President Donald Trump’s transgender military ban to go into effect on Tuesday, dealing a blow to LGBT activists who call the ban cruel and irrational.
By the government’s own numbers in 2016, there were approximately 8,980 Service members that identify as transgender. During the Obama administration, 937 members were diagnosed with gender dysphoria and began or completed their transition.
( My Opinion: This is a disturbing trend. It should not matter what gender you are or how you identify, if you are serving in the military you are serving your country and risking your life. A sad day indeed and hopefully it gets overturned! WE are all HUMAN. Respect those around you. )
