Monday the Pentagon announced defeat and total surrender in the LBGT culture war. It will allow transgender members of the military to serve openly starting next year. At first I was thinking WTF. When Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter said he had directed the armed forces to devise new rules over the next six months that would allow transgender troops to serve, I thought OMG the entire military has gone batshit crazy.
Then it became clear to me, what a sneaky way to fix the problem on not enough women in the Seals, Marines, Army Rangers, etc. All they have to do to fix that problem is get enough manly men to claim to be women. If Bruce Jenner can be Katlin and we must now refer to him as a woman then so can any Navy Seal. Presto-change-o the not enough women in certain parts of the military is fixed. You can have a big strapping woman who can carry a 80 pound ruck with a log on her shoulder after 20 hours of hard labor during Hell Week, just as effectively as any man. Just because “Samantha” (formerly Sam Smith) has balls, a schlong, and no tits, being 6’2” tall, weighing 200 pounds, and bench pressing 300 pounds, and is just a girl who thinks a 10K run is a warm up, that doesn’t make her any less a woman.
Absolutely brilliant on the part of Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter. If we must accept men who claim to be women as women, then the physical requirements of certain military units do not have to be compromised to accommodate anybody, just let some men claim to be women, hell just classify 40% the current men in the seals as women, they don’t even have to know about it and the problem is solved. Sargent Alvin York now has the box next to Female under Sex: checked, and he’s labeled like the old joke goes, “A Lesbian Woman Trapped in a Man’s Body.” If the actual biology of a person doesn’t define their sex, rather how they, (or the powers that be) “feel” about their sex determines their legal sex, then the problem of enough women passing PT can be made to disappear with paperwork instead of lowering standards.
It looks like not all of the unintended consequences to the freakshow that is the current LBGT culture war will not be bad for the military. Those military types are sneaky bastards.
