Current ‘Transgenders’ in the Military Can Re-Enlist for Now

This week, U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis issued interim rules governing “transgenders” in the military. These will remain in effect until Mattis and the Secretary of Homeland Security develop a plan to implement President Trump’s directive to ban them from military service, which is due by February 21, 2018.

Current service members receiving treatment for gender dysphoria will continue to serve and continue to receive treatment, and those who have finished “transitioning” can continue to serve in their preferred gender. “Transgender” service members may re-enlist during this interim period as well. The only group of “transgenders” who can’t serve are new recruits who are being treated for gender dysphoria.

Interestingly, according to Family Research Council, almost 60 percent of active-duty military isn’t happy with the decision to allow “transgender” troops to serve openly. More than half of that group said the decision was also negatively affecting morale in the military.

The Dangers of Puberty Blockers in Children

The number of pediatric gender clinics pushing puberty blocking to prevent suicides in children suffering from gender dysphoria has been expanding the past ten years, but new research by three medical experts published in The New Atlantis shows this “fix” does more harm than good.

The reality is that 80 to 95 percent of children with gender dysphoria will come to identify with and embrace their bodily sex if they are allowed to develop naturally. Children who take puberty blockers run the risk of not developing normally once puberty is allowed to resume, and are at risk for conditions such as high blood pressure, liver disease, and cardiovascular disease. The report reflects that 41 percent of those identifying as “transgender” will attempt suicide at some point in their life and those who have had transition surgery are 19 times more likely than average to die by suicide than other people. So, these trans-affirming solutions can not only cause major health issues, but can also lead to self-inflicted death, which everyone in the debate, including the liberals who advocate for this treatment, wants to prevent.

Scholar Finds Freedom in Identifying as ‘Trans-Species’ Hippo

One man has taken gender dysphoria to a new level. Beyond considering himself “transgender,” University of Arizona visiting scholar Florentin Félix Morin now wants to be identified as “trans-species” or what he calls “tranimal” by identifying, at least metaphorically, as a hippopotamus.

His hippo alter-ego allows Morin to “feel cute, confident, sexy, and safe. I discovered that another self was available for me: being a hippo means that I don’t have to be a boy or a girl, a child or an adult, normal or strange,” he says.

How sad that a human must identify with the animal world in order to feel accepted and valued.
