Weighing in on all the hoopla concerning Donald Trump’s executive order disqualifying the transgender from serving in the military; the thesis and antithesis of who is right and who is wrong is really a subjective point of view. Even among Veterans and active duty personal there are many examples that make the case for those who are for and against the initiative to disqualify the transgender. Viewpoints from Vets like Kristin Beck the decorated Navy SEAL who transitioned from male to female after she left the Navy. Then there is J.R Salzman a wounded Vet who argues that a person who is conflicted emotional, physically and mentally is a ticking time bomb in a combat environment. The latter argument holds more water. Even when the non- transgendered are in an emotional, physical and mental turmoil it is a problem that gets compounded and endangers everyone else. But there are those who are transgendered and are not in emotional, physical and mental turmoil to the point where it will compromise their unit in a combat zone. Look at Beck; he/she was sound minded while he/she was serving as a SEAL. The military is supposed to examine all before they are deployed to ensure that they are sound minded and physical capable before they are deployed. However, depending on how bad the government wants troops on the ground the military may overlook the flaws and lower the standards that permits a service person to be deployed. I’ve heard the saying “let those who have not sinned caste the first stone.” I hope when you caste the stone you don’t hit your glass house.
When I was doing a Master degree program at one of New York City’s well-established and expensive Universities where they suck you dry for tuition money, but hey, who can put a price on education? I guess the banks can because students are stuck with paying off the tuition for years after graduation. I took some courses in the study of gender and I wrote a paper on the transgendered entitled GENDER-TRANSGENDER I got a mark of 80 for this paper. Today while looking on how GENDER-TRANSGENDER was written True_George has noted that my writing skill has since improved and if I were to have written this same paper today with my improved writing skills I would have gotten a 100. Anyway; I’ve decided to put the paper here with the hopes that it will inform and perhaps educate you on transgendered/transsexual and transvestites. Just recognize what you are reading is an academic study not a creative writing:
