The U.S. military is working hard to become more “transgender-friendly.” In doing so, female soldiers will now be forced to accept gender-confused, biological men into their change rooms, showers, bathrooms, and barracks.
The new policy claims it is building “dignity and respect” for “transgender soldiers,” something that former President Barack Obama heavily pushed for.
The initial training materials were issued in September 2016.
In “Vignette 4” of an Army’s PowerPoint guidance, titled, “Policy on the Military Service of Transgender Soldiers Training Module, Tier 3: Units and Soldiers,” it states the following regarding a hypothetical “transgender Soldier” who is “transitioning” to a new “gender”:
“Following her transition from male to female (which did not include sex reassignment surgery) and gender marker change in DEERS [the Army’s personnel system – Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System], a transgender Soldier begins using female barracks, bathroom, and shower facilities. Because she did not undergo a surgical change, the Soldier still has male genitalia.”
And this is what the U.S. Army suggested female soldiers do in response.
“Understand that you may encounter individuals in barracks, bathrooms, or shower facilities with physical characteristics of the opposite sex despite having the same gender marker in DEERS,” the training material explained.
“All Soldiers should be respectful of the privacy and modesty concerns of others. However, transgender Soldiers are not required or expected to modify or adjust their behavior based on the fact that they do not ‘match’ other Soldiers,” it continued.
Conservative Tribune reports:
James Hasson, a former Army captain and Afghanistan war veteran, pointed out as much in an article for The Federalist.
“The military is normally in the business of telling soldiers to ‘modify or adjust their behavior’ all the time,” he wrote.
Never mind the fact that being in the military can already be stressful. Women soldiers don’t need the added worry that a man (because if you have male genitalia, you are a man) is watching them undress or shower. Just like male soldiers shouldn’t have to be worried about a female watching them in private places.
“Consider what these policies mean in real life: Most Army showers look like a prison cell with several showerheads on the wall,” Hasson explained.
“Anyone who has dealt with the practical challenges of funneling 30 people through them in ten minutes understands that ‘privacy’ will be incompatible with reality,” he continued.
This is pure craziness.
