Re: “The transgender military debate: policy versus culture

@ Rene Jax,
Obstinant, aren't you?
Ash Carter established a commission to study the effects of open transgender service on readiness. The commission included two general/flag officers. The commission came to the conclusion that that there is no reason transgender personnel cannot serve openly, and that lifting the ban would have no impact on readiness.
From the article: Since Carter's initial announcement last year, many people within the military community have spoken out against trans people serving openly in the armed forces. Their arguments have focused, like Mattis', on readiness and unit morale. Their sentiments match those of the War Department in 1940, regarding the racial integration of the U.S. military, which argued that integration would "produce situations destructive to morale and detrimental to the preparation for national defense."
The exact same arguments were used during the debate surrounding the repeal of Don't So, Don't Tell.
