Transgender, gender dysphoria, gender fluid, or any other term one wants to give to this and related thought processes are a mental illness.
Diagnosable, certifiable, and properly treatable. Anyone who is mentally ill should not be allowed to serve in the military. To deny their service is an act of kindness and love, not one of hate or oppression.
The facts are simple. No matter how many hormones or drugs someone takes will not change one’s gender.
Cosmetic surgical mutilation cannot change one’s gender.
And no matter how one feels about their gender, this will never alter it either.
Some of these may introduce temporary and even permanent changes to outward appearance but it does not ever change the gender of the individual. Even a court order will not change the actual gender, it might change current documentation but that is only an illusion.
Gender is determined at the moment of conception. The mother’s egg provides an X sex chromosome. The father’s sperm provides the 2nd sex chromosome in the linked pair. An XX pair is female. An XY pair is male. This is basic biology and undisputed scientific fact. There are mutations to this but those are rare.
No amount of chemicals or surgery will alter this scientific based chromosomal pair. And this pairing can easily be discovered with a simple blood test no matter what documentation, feelings, surgery, or hormones have attempted to disguise.
Stop promoting and enabling this mental illness under the guise of equality. There is nothing equal about preventing someone from getting professional treatment for a mental illness. Transgender Rights, there is no such thing since being transgender is a mental illness.
