Transgender Ban in The U.S. Military

         This ban on transgender service members in the military was introduced by the Trump administration to help cut down on the military budget... Yet his administration wants to use 5 billion dollars in emergency funding to build a wall.               According to CBS news this issue affects about 15,000 transgender troops. Blake Dremann, a transgender veteran was interviewed and had this to say about how people who are transgender are being affected, “It is restricting them to live two lives, they will have to be one person and home and one person at work. And what that does is it affects military readiness, it keeps people from bringing their whole selves to work.”(4:05) This is caused because of the stress of not being able to serve openly and get the medical procedures needed as he proves here, “We’ve told our troops that you have to pick between treatment or your job.” (3:10) and “They say we can identify as transgender openly, that negates the fact that is is partially a medical condition that requires treatment” (3:25). This is unjust because it is singling out one type of person and not allowing them to be their true selves at work. It directly affects military readiness which can make a persons fighting ability less effective.          In the Ebook THE INVISIBLE ARMY: WHY THE MILITARY NEEDS TO RESCIND ITS BAN ON TRANSGENDER SERVICE MEMBERS by Allison Ross she defines transgenderism “Transgenderism challenges the gender binary that is assumed by our society and the military. ‘Transgender’ is a broad term that encompasses persons whose “gender identity, gender expression, or behavior does not conform to that typically associated with the sex to which they were assigned at birth.”(Ross, 188) This means, since men and women are allowed to serve, that just because you change the gender you identify as through an operation you become unfit to serve. This is completely unfair and is discriminating people who change their gender for no reason seeing that both genders can serve.          This quote from the Congressional Digest shows this "As always, we treat all transgender persons with respect and dignity. (The Department of Defense's) proposed policy is NOT a ban on service by transgender persons. It is critical that DoD be permitted to implement personnel policies that it determines are necessary to ensure the most lethal and combat effective fighting force in the world. DoD's proposed policy is based on professional military judgment and will ensure that the U.S. Armed Forces remain the most lethal and combat effective fighting force in the world." This confirms that lawmakers believe that just because you change genders you become less effective at fighting. This is an outrageous claim because men and women are both effective at fighting according to the military, but a man who changes their gender to the opposite sex is not effective enough.          As you have seen this ban is absolutely ridiculous and must be overturned to restore equality in the military. The way I intend to get their attention is to make posters to put around that motivate people to get involved and come here to sign this petition. This will get lawmakers attention and will truly show how many people are care about all service members of this country, no matter their gender.
