24 Republicans Vote To Preserve Transgender Ideology in Military

Twenty-four Republicans banded together on Thursday to defeat an amendment which would have ended former President Barack Obama’s 2016 policy of funding “gender-reassignment” surgery for soldiers who want to live as members of the opposite sex.

The amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act was offered by Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R, Mo.). It would have prohibited the use of taxpayer dollars to pay for the non-military medical task of converting healthy soldiers into “transgender” soldiers who face lifelong dependence on hormones and surgery.

The July 13 vote saw Democrats vote in lockstep to defeat the amendment, despite the national unpopularity of the transgender ideology. They were joined by 24 Republicans who broke with their party to assist the Democrats to defeat the amendment, without any visible objections by the GOP’s business-focused leadership.

The offer of free medical care to gender-confused soldiers is part of the broader effort by Obama to have the Pentagon affirm and implement the transgender ideology, which says that people can have a “gender” different from their biological sex. The ideology also says that a person’s legal sex is defined by their self-assessed gender — not by their biology — and that other Americans must agree with people who say they are a member of the opposite sex.

Many Republicans praised the Hartzler amendment and criticized the Obama transgender policy. “It makes no sense to create soldiers who are unable to fight and win our nation’s wars,” Hartzler said during debate on the bill, according to the Associated Press.

Hartzler's bill is confusing and doesn't navigate through the medical care for dependents with transgender issues.

Does this mean that these "Lopadiqoffofme's" will not fall under the female APFT scores? Or will the newly assigned "Addadicktome's" fall under the mail APFT scores? What happens when a she-he can't pass the PT test for their newly assigned gender? Is there going to be a special set of test scores for them?

It's not an ideology. It's a mental illness.

Glad I served several years ago when men were men and women were women. We always knew someone had your back.

Rebel, you are assuming females want to be males. Often times, it's the other way around. Then it would be much easier to pass the physical tests. This was previously called laziness.

Ideologies are not always well rooted in scientific proofs. It's part of the shortcomings of Mankind. Emotions all too often rule, even in the face of disqualifying, irrefutable science.

WHY are we discussing this? All it conjures is opinions that NO one can agree on, but its placed right on the hotbed.

Ideologies are inherently NOT rooted in any scientific proof.
They are systems of thought and as such are based only upon one's mental creation.
They are "ideas" spun out into a system of thought.

Get it?
