Biden to Allow Military Funding for Sex Change Surgeries

President Joe Biden reversed Trump’s executive order that banned transgender people from serving in the military and prevented military funding for sex reassignment surgeries.

The Trump executive order was issued in 2017 and went into effect in 2019. Biden reversed it on Monday.

“Allowing all qualified Americans to serve their country in uniform is better for the military and better for the country because an inclusive force is a more effective force,” the White House said in a statement. “Simply put, it’s the right thing to do and is in our national interest.”

Biden’s executive order comes after the confirmation of Biden’s pick for lead of the Department of Defense, retired General Lloyd Austin. Austin is the first black man to serve as Secretary of Defense. During his confirmation hearing, Austin voiced his support for the reversal of the transgender military ban.

“If you’re fit and you’re qualified to serve and you can maintain the standards, you should be allowed to serve and you can expect that I will support that throughout,” Austin said.

Trump’s executive order required service members to identify as their biological sex assigned at birth. It also prohibited military funding from paying for sex reassignment surgeries for service members with “gender dysphoria.”

Trump made the 2017 announcement in a tweet:

“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.”

      This is crazy. Why should you allow funding for this? I want plastic surgery. Will you fund this for me. Please Mr. President don’t start this crazy stuff, we have other important policies that need to be dealt with, we have people who really need help. Don’t start with our Military. It’s hard to train our newly soldiers to be soldiers than to put this in the lives of people. We need real leaders. Something is wrong. Lord help us.

    Transgender surgeries expenses paid by taxpayers – for military transgenders – a TOTAL waste of our money. Taxpayer money! Biden is an idiot! He’s also illegitimate! What these people need is an appointment with a psychiatrist not surgery paid for by taxpayers

    We will now see what a fool the new president really is. Transgender in the military and weird boys forcing girls out of sports. I guess there are many people unhappy they wasted their vote electing this second rate team to run the country.

    “It’s the right thing to do, and it’s in our national interest.”
    It’s neither one. God does not want men to look like woman nor women to look like men. There’s no national reason why we would want a man to look like a woman or a woman to look like a man.

    China-Joe is dangerous. He is well on his way of ruining our country with his 12 EO’s. I have no doubt he comprehends what is in them. I realize his VP is a POS with no ability but her mentor, the other empty suit (BHO), will help her through the term.

    Sex changes are to my belief “ELECTIVE SURGERY”
    Ordinary people that don’t like their bodies have to pay for their own operations. THESE Sick people want to be woman or men only need join the service for free tax payer funded operations… BULL ****

    If my nose is too big, my teeth bucked or ears stick out I wouldn’t expect the people of the USA to have to pay to make me look normal.
    If you decide that you are really not the sex you were raised, save your money and pay for your own bodily changes as you would any other feature that you do not like,
