U.S. Air Force Airmen who want to change genders while in service will now get special treatment and can seek temporary exemptions from gender-specific physical fitness tests, uniform requirements, and bathrooms, according to a new policy issued by the Air Force.
The new political correctness transgender changes in the guidance issued by U.S. Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James and Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein, titled, “Air Force Policy Memorandum for In-Service Transition for Airmen Identifying as Transgender,” released on Oct. 6., was reported by Military.com.
“The policy and guidance is for all military personnel serving in the United States Air Force, including those serving in the Reserve and Guard components of the Air Force. This guidance also provides unit personnel, supervisors, commanders, transgender Airmen and the medical community a construct by which transgender Airmen may transition gender while serving. It further outlines policies for accessing, separating, and retaining transgender Airmen,” the memorandum stated.
The transgenders will then be allowed to use the bathrooms and showers of their choice as well as dress the opposite sex while serving.
Gays and lesbians have served for decades and sought no special favors until President Obama was elected and the military has become so politically correct to the point that one wonders if the U.S. Military can defend the United States properly.
As one USAF veteran posted, “As a former E-5 k-9 handler U.S.A.F. 1972-1976 I am incensed that from the draft dodging Bill Clinton to this current Marxist in our White House that these dolts play social games with our troops. What in the hell is a transgender anyway? The purpose of the military is to kill and break things not play liberal social games and applying their ignorant, misguided, twisted rules to de- stabilizing our military. I would be ashamed to serve in today’s military as these retards have bastardized the psyche and spirits of our airmen.”
Back in 2015, the Washington Times reported that a The Heritage Foundation report found that the military could not fight two wars at once as the U.S. military has been decimated under Obama, to only ‘marginally able’ to defend the nation, in which being able to fight two wars simultaneously was the policy for decades.
In the report, a U.S House Armed Services Committee member said the Air Force “would say we are dangerously close to no longer being able to guarantee that air dominance that we could guarantee in Kuwait.”
There are nearly 700,000 transgender individuals in the U.S., or 0.3% of the adult population based on estimates in 2011, and now, the U.S. Air Force is becoming more politically correct and will continue to weaken the morale based on favoritism.
As another USAF veteran stated, “It would be one thing for them to get an easier PT test. But, why on Earth have them not do a PT test at all? Honestly, you have a soldier who doesn’t have to adhere to standards, isn’t deployable, is more expensive than other soldiers and causes huge amounts of problems in the unit.”
“So why are we trying to retain these people?”
