This is in no way meant to disrespect any transgender soldiers currently serving or wanting to serve in any branch of the military, but I don’t understand why you’d want to risk your life and livelihood for a country who doesn’t respect who you are as a living breathing human being. Is it that you come from a family with a history of military service? Is there some other reason I’m unable to think of? There are so many in this country, starting at the very top of the “food chain” who, quite frankly, abhor your existence, yet you’re willing to defend them. That’s pretty selfless of you, whoever you are. I hope that someday the people who hate you so much have a change of heart somehow, but I doubt it will be in my lifetime. Anyway, the good news is that you will no longer be banned from serving if you so choose.
The Trump administration must accept transgender recruits into the military by Jan. 1, a federal judge ruled Monday.
The decision prevents a ban on enlisting new transgender troops that the administration had sought to implement after an earlier injunction against the president’s order.
“The court will not stay its preliminary injunction pending defendants’ appeal,” Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia wrote Monday.
