Pentagon sets limits on transgender troops

The Defense Department approved a new policy that requires most individuals to serve in their birth gender. The policy falls short of the all-out transgender ban that was initially ordered by President Trump. It, however, will force the military to eventually discharge transgender individuals who need hormone treatments or surgery. The military services must implement the new policy in 30 days.

Ok so some of you guys didnt read the articles and its sad because majority of the articles are from the right, but this isn't a ban on transgenders (left stance) and transgenders aren't getting banned because they are mentally unstable (right stance). Left stance adressed: Transgenders can still join the military with gender dysphoria, the only difference is after April 12th if you take hormone pills or are transitioning before enlisting, you cant join, meaning that if you are transgender but do not require medication or a transition you are still allowed to join the military. Out of 14000 trans soldiers in the military only 1000 of them have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria. right stance addressed: No one is being banned based on transgenders being mentally unstable, in fact transgenders can still be allowed in the military, you guys clearly didnt read the articles to make that argument, the whole time the articles never mentioned mental stability and mainly mentioned money and how much some transgenders were costing the military
