Transgender people in the military
Currently there is a ban on transgender people serving in the United States military. Many people believed that this ban should be repealed seeing as the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy was recently repealed.
The ban states that 1) all people who identify as transgender (people who have undergone genital transition surgery, people taking supplemental hormones, and people who merely identify as the opposite gender but have not challenged any physical aspect of themselves) are disqualified from the ability to serve in the US military, 2) any military service member who comes out during time will be discharged, and 3) any Individual Ready Reserve member may be disqualified upon coming out.
Should this be repealed or not?
