SCOTUS To Decide Transgender ‘Rights’?

The president wants the Supreme Court to issue a final decision on transgender military ‘rights.’

The Trump administraiton is moving to have the Supreme Court issue a final ruling on supposed 'trans' military rights.

President Donald Trump’s administration is going directly to the Supreme Court to issue a decision on supposed transgender military ‘rights.

The legitimate move has been blocked by liberals on lower courts, and caused a frenzy of leftist outrage when Trump announced it in July, 2017.

“The United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the US Military.

“Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail,” the president tweeted.

The official restrictions would block most individuals (a mind-boggling minority) with “gender dysphoria” from serving alongside people in the military without the mental disorder.

It also specifies that all other individuals who serve, do so according to the sex assigned to them at birth.

The American Psychiatric Association states that not all transgender individuals necessarily suffer from gender dysphoria, however, many experts disagree.

While challenges to block the president’s policy are on-going, Solicitor General Noel Francisco filed petitions on Friday for SCOTUS to take up the case.

Francisco said the military had been forced to continue its prior policy while the courts sorted out the mess, and noted that James Mattis and a panel of experts had argued the “prior policy, adopted by [Defense Secretary Ash Carter, under Obama] posed too great a risk to military effectiveness and lethality.”

When looking at the specifics, most thinking people agree. It would allow men to live, shower, and otherwise be held to female standards.

The morale factor alone would be devastating, many agree.

The Supreme Court, now with the addition of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, does not normally consider issues until they have gone through the lower courts, yet this issue could be taken up.
