The Transgender Ban

Trump tweeted out that he was going to end the military accepting transgender people.  He cited the medical costs as the reason.  And of course, everyone lost their minds.

First, I agree whole-heartedly with this decision.  For a whole host of reasons.

1 – Even if they have a policy in place that says that we will not pay for the surgery to “transition,” this will be offered eventually.  There is no way Democrats would not offer it, but even if they don’t, the hormone replacement treatment is very expensive.  Why spend the military funds on this when you can buy jets and bombs and stuff?

2 – There are so many annoying things.  Which bathrooms do they use?  How do they fill out forms?  So forth and so forth.  It’s just annoying to have to worry about such things.

3 – Transgender people have something wrong with them.  I do not hate transgender people.  I do not have ill-wishes for them.  I do not fear them.  No, I actually care for them.  Whether or not people want to admit it, the parts that they seek to rid themselves of have a purpose.  When you get rid of them, you have to take hormones and etc.  This is not mere vanity.  This is different than someone getting plastic surgery.  Why?  Because a woman getting breasts implants doesn’t say “I was a big breasted woman born in a small breasted body.”  No.  She says “I have small breasts and I wish to have large breasts.”  In this way, she is different than the transgendered man.  He says, “I am a woman born in a man’s body.”  Now, you can quote me all kinds of chromosomes this and that and blah blah blah… but all of this is irrelevant.  Even if all that is true… you are born with a penis or a vagina.  That’s biology.  It’s anatomy.  Gender, as they used to tell me, is a social construct.  I would have a slightly different feeling if they said “I wish I were a woman because…”  Then it’s NOT a mental disorder.  They are saying that they are a man and they wish to be a woman.

It may sound like I’m splitting hairs, but I do believe that this gender dismorphia is sight of a mental illness, and I am hard pressed to support giving such a person a weapon and putting them in a high stress situation.

These people do not need “acceptance.”  They need help.  If your friend came to you and said “I am a blind man in a sighted body, so I am going to remove my eyes,” you would stop them.  How is it any different?  Merely because it has something to do with genitalia?

Long Live the Constitution!
