Naval Academy will bar transgender students in fall 2020

Transgender people will be effectively banned from attending the Naval Academy beginning in the 2020 school year, the Defense Department confirmed Monday.

Policy barring transgender people from serving in the United States military will also affect the Naval Academy, which has under previous policy accepted transgender students and retained midshipmen who want to transition during the course of their education.

Naval Academy alumna Alex Marberry became one of the first sailors to transition after former Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter under the Obama administration lifted restrictions on service in 2016. A midshipman, Regan Kibby, is one of six service members suing the Trump administration for the ban.

The Dems should love this idea. It's taking guns out of the hands of mentally ill people!

Get your education and serve. Worry about that later. I know a former Navy Seal that has since transitioned. Not only is he the ugliest women I have every seen but is a total hot mess in all other respects. I am amazed he ever made it through the psyche review for special forces. I don't pretend to understand it. There must be something to it otherwise these people would not be so tortured to go to such extremes. I don't hate or find these people revolting and out of respect for them as individuals I don't feel sorry for them. It's what they think they want and need. I just really don't understand it at all. Life is tough enough and not that long to spend it in misery and confusion. My grandmother was no dainty lady she looked and worked like a man with tits and the hands of a boxer. I don't think she thought anything of it she was too busy. She could have possibly been a lesbian or maybe " Transgender " but she just got on getting on as she was.I don't think being happy occurred to her. She was what she was getting on being a wife mother and matriarch. She did for others. I think much of this modern malaise stems from only being concerned with the self.

There is such a thing as dysphoria. People suffering this are confused about their identity and unacceptung of their bodies as they are. BUT IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING WITH THIS YOU DON'T BELONG IN THE MILITARY!!

Why didn't they bar McCain? He was an overall jerk who was responsible for killing many saliors onboard aircraft carrier.
