    Army Eases Ban on Transgendered Soldiers

    Army Times: http://www.armytimes.com/story/milit...iers/24529333/

    WASHINGTON — The Army issued a directive Friday that protects transgender soldiers from being dismissed by mid-level officers by requiring the decision for discharge to be made by the service's top civilian for personnel matters.

    The Army's new policy is the latest indication that the military's ban on transgender troops may be eased or even lifted.

    Last month, Defense Secretary Ash Carter told troops he was "very open-minded" about transgender troops, adding that nothing but a person's ability to serve should keep them from serving. Two days later, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said President Obama endorsed Carter's comments.

    Trade in your cock and balls for an easier PT test. Hmmm... I might have to give that one some thought...

    That's the thing though. WILL someone transgendered have to abide by Male, female or some other rules for things such as PT test, grooming standards and uniforms?

    The one thing I believe, whether transgendered or not, is that there should be separate regiments for gay and lesbian soldiers as well as for women in general . . . this for morale purposes. The army should not be a place for social experimentation.
