house Bill H. Res. 124

Should the House Express Opposition to Trump’s Ban on Military Service by Transgender Individuals?

Argument in favor

The Trump administration’s ban on transgender people serving in the armed forces is discriminatory, and it puts U.S. military readiness at risk. While this resolution wouldn’t stop the enactment of this policy, it would at least express the House’s disapproval of it.

Transgender soldiers have served for years. To discriminate against them now is based solely on bigotry or uneducated position.

Transgender persons have been serving in the military. Why discriminate against them and LGBTQs? As long as someone in the military can fulfill the mission and pull a trigger I don’t care what else they pull, push, grab, hug or kiss.. Society generally and the military particularly need to pay more attention to what’s in a person’s heart and between his/her ears than what’s between their legs. Oppose Trump’s (and Pence’s) bigotry and throw out this discriminatory policy.

Argument opposed

Rather than passing this toothless resolution, the House should use its time to consider legislation that would actually stop the transgender servicemember ban. Alternatively, the ban on transgender individuals serving in the military should be implemented.

No, let the military decide on who they choose to serve. There are many other individuals who are unable to serve due to physical and or mental impairments and would LOVE to be able to serve their country. Unfortunately, they aren’t able to.

The Kennedys have really lost their way since JFK. Transgenders have NO business being in the military. Taxpayers should not have to pay for their expensive hormonal treatments, sex change operations, and other enhancements required for basically living a sexual lie. The military is NOT a place for social experiments.

The problem with transgender serving in the military is most of them don’t want to serve at all. They want to join, get their gender reassignment surgery for almost free and then go on disability on the governments dime for the rest of their life. If you do your research you’d find that’s why Trump put in the ban in the first place. It was costing the government a ton of money with no benefits.

    Unless #45 or someone in his immediate family is willing to pick up a weapon and serve, he has NO business to define, require or have any say, in the U.S. military.

    If an individual has the desire to help protect their country what right does a lowlife named Trump have the right to stop it. Especially one who never served because of his lame excuse of bone spurs which he probably never suffered from.

    Serving in the military is not a right. People are rejected for many reasons, including health factors, mental and physical. The military isn’t a place for someone with gender issues to inflict their decisions on others and use taxpayer funds to pay for surgery. It’s time to come back to reality. Enough pandering to these fringe groups.

    Transgenderism is a mental illness, plain and simple. To enlist in the military you are supposed to be in peak physical and mental condition, they even do testing for it. The military shouldn’t have to lower it’s standards just because a bunch of whiny millennials don’t like the rules. People need to realize that we are born with either XX or XY, those are the only choices...deal with it.

    So many militaries around the world have managed to mature past the level of a five year old. But, because we have a mentally unstable five year old as president, we met all live like barbarians. Will we ever be free of these antiquated superstitions?
