I have just discovered that there is a trans ban...

in our services. Trump does not want any transgender people to serve in uniform.

The military has gotten over the gay hangup and now there is question as to whether it should get over the trans hangup as well. This becomes an issue because troops have to shower together. Should men who present themselves as women be showering with biological women? Should taxpayers be burdened by any special healthcare needs of transgenders who might serve in uniform?

Though some may hate my guts here, I was just wondering about people feel about transgenders in the military.

Could transgenders still fight as good soldiers in theory? Can the service accommodate for transgenders in a practical way?

The military is not the religion or morality police nor is it a social experimentation lab: they are designed expressly to kill: destroy our enemies professionally.
