Wednesday’s ban has nothing to do with money and everything to do with lingering prejudices.
Stating that transgender medical costs are a factor in this decision is the same ignorance being used to tear down our first comprehensive medical care act. Let’s face it, as humans, we are living longer, facing medical issues brought on by diet, environment, and genetics. And our current armed forces already struggles to get quality recruits WANTING to serve in our armed forces. And what is with “disruption that transgender in the military would entail.” This is disgusting as with any gay or straight or male-to-female, or female to male we as professionals work to perform a job and surely are not on the job to pursue any sexual desires.
When we start condoning employers to decide on who to hire based on what that candidates potential medical costs would pose to that company; then we have a serious problem indeed.
