    Pentagon to lift ban on transgender troops on July 1 and ‘parts of the repeal will be effective immediately’

    The Pentagon plans to announce the repeal of its ban on openly serving transgender service members on July 1.
    The repeal would come five years after a 2011 decision to end Don't Ask Don't Tell, the US military's ban on gays and lesbians serving openly.
    US defense officials plan to meet as early as Monday to finalize the plan and Deputy Defense Secretary Bob Work could sign off on it as early as Wednesday, USA Today reported.

    The Pentagon plans to announce the repeal of its ban on openly serving transgender service members next month, US defense officials said

    The disclosure came the same week that the US Army formally welcomed its new secretary, Eric Fanning, who is the first openly gay leader of a military service branch in US history
    The final approval would come from US Defense Secretary Ash Carter and the announcement will be the first week of July.
    A US official said parts of the repeal would come into effect immediately.
    But the plan would also direct each branch of the armed services to implement new policies affecting everything from recruiting to housing for transgender troops, the official said.
    This week the US Army also formally welcomed its new secretary, Eric Fanning, who is the first openly gay leader of a military service branch in US history.
    Carter announced last year that the ban would be lifted unless a review showed that doing so would have 'adverse impact on military effectiveness and readiness', according to USA Today.

    But Republican Representative Mac Thornberry, chairman of the House of Representatives Armed Services Committee, said Carter had not answered the panel's questions about 'readiness challenges' for transgender service members, among others.
    'If reports are correct, I believe Secretary Carter has put the political agenda of a departing administration ahead of the military's readiness crisis,' Thornberry said in a statement.
    Supporters of transgender rights cheered the news. Ashley Broadway-Mack, president of the American Military Partner Association, said in a statement: 'Our transgender service members and their families are breathing a huge sigh of relief.'
    The National Center for Transgender Equality estimated last year that 15,000 transgender people served in the US military.

    Awesome. I'm sure that the men putting their lives on the line will feel comfort in knowing they have mentally & emotionally unstable people watching their backs. This bullshit needs to stop. One of the biggest complaints in the trans community is that they can't get jobs. The reality is most of them make their entire existence about being "trans" and that how we all have to meet every emotional need they have so that they feel alright in the world. They think "being" trans is a job. They all have bullshit lines of employment......activist, actor, artist, motivational speaker, etc. So lets put them in the military......:backlol2:

    It's probably of all time, not per year. An average of 60 something per year doesn't sound way off.

    I thought this board was just a good place to post about Stern Show stuff but I can see it's packed full of racists, homophobes and xenophobes. Have fun with your echo chamber guys.

    Why are you so upset ?
    You should be celebrating that you can serve in the military now.
