The Left are “using trans as a weapon”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander
 

On Friday's show, I spoke with Gavin McInnes about President Trump's decision to ban trans people from the military.

Five years ago transgenderism was considered a mental disorder, but a single vote changed that and opened the flood gates to left-wing mania.

Now we're being lead to believe that people who want to cut off their body parts and take hormones should be sent into battle with assault weapons.

WATCH my video to see why Gavin believes trans people are the new weapon the left is using to virtue signal and attack traditionalism.

This article is two years old, still very relevant and will inform folks like Andrew what the msm media ignores. There are links to studies.
Astonishing evidence of other illness.
According to several studies, the majority of transgenders have co-existing disorders that need to be treated. This helps to explain why regret and suicide are prevalent among transgenders. The following studies provide irrefutable evidence that transgenders overwhelmingly suffer from a variety of mental disorders.
“90 percent of these diverse patients had at least one other significant form of psychopathology” reported Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, Department of Psychiatry in a 2009 study of transgender outcomes at their clinic. In other words, 90 percent of the patients were suffering from a mental illness that gender surgery did not alleviate.

“61 percent of the patients treated for cross-gender identification (359 people) had other psychiatric disorders and illnesses, notably personality, mood, dissociative, and psychotic disorders according to a 2003 Dutch survey of board-certified Dutch psychiatrists.”

“A 2013 University of Louisville, KY study of 351 transgender individuals found that the rates of depression and anxiety symptoms within the study “far surpass the rates of those for the general population.” About half had depressive symptoms and more than 40 percent had symptoms of anxiety.”

The US military has every right to deny anyone who is deemed not physically or mentally fit to serve.

Andrew, knee replacement is not the same thing as being gelded & required to take life-long hormones. I agree with Drew’s post.

Andrew Stephenson it is not paranoia and you know little of what is required for combat.
commented 2017-08-01 00:33:14 -0400
I guess, my ultimate point is that Trump’s policy represents the triumph of paranoia over reason.
commented 2017-08-01 00:31:54 -0400
I have no issue with having them wait post-transition before entering service. We would not enlist someone that just had his knees replaced either, for the same reason. Once recovered, though, what’s the problem?

It’s easy enough to find trans troops who have very positive feelings about their experience as well. One outspoken opponent… means very little in isolation. In particular the Canadian experience (open secret: there are trans individuals in the Canadian forces, and have been for some time) illustrates that most of the alarmism … is just that. People are more afraid of the idea of transgender soldiers, than they are once they see the reality.

Andrew Stephenson, you are ignoring the obvious. The Department of Defense is not obligated to meet the emotional/psychological needs of dysphoric individuals; or pay for their surgeries and hormones.

On paper, it may reasonable (discounting the costs to uphold the delusion),but, devote some time into how troops really react to gender dysphoric service people and you will see the tremendous cost this has the military as a whole. Step outside your bubble for an hour and research this.

You are a theoritical owner of an EV, and push trans agenda in the military without any real knowledge or experience. Viewing vids of former military who served with honour and distinction before the “transition” doesn’t count in my view. You are relying on “how I want it to be” instead of reality. That is a very limited view/perspective which doesn’t take into account anyone but the “transgender” person you hold up more than the rest of the military. I see that as tunnel vision.

Being “different” is not a mental illness. Dysphoria can be classified as one, but it’s treatable and ultimately not an immediate disqualification.

I know of no transgender individuals who are “waving their thing around little girls and women”. They call it ‘stealth" for a reason. Most of the time you’ll never know any better.
commented 2017-07-31 19:55:55 -0400
Andrew Stephenson trans people have a mental disorder that disqualifies them from service, they are not innocent bystanders, nor are they attacked. Sorry but diversity is not viable in every part of life. And tell the pride parade to quit shutting out cops if you value diversity. And how about you give a damn about the bystanders who do not want a man in the womans change room or bathroom waving their thing around little girls and women. Or do they not count as much as a tiny minority in your SPECIAL world?
commented 2017-07-31 13:00:00 -0400
Is there any doubt that there was an underlying reason for transgender people trying to enlist?!!!!! The surgical and pharmaceutical gravy train is no longer leaving the station, I don’t think there will be as much interest in “serving in the military” for the gender dysphoric community.

It didn’t work for Klinger but then again I’m pretty sure he didn’t show up in his wedding dress when he signed up lol.

“Drew Wakariuk commented 9 hours ago
Andrew Stephenson please tell me what INNOCENT BYSTANDERS are being attacked by Trump”

That would be transgender soldiers. The majority of whom are there to serve their country and just had their futures tossed into doubt, merely because their existence makes traditionalists uncomfortable.

I would love to see one instance where left wing progressives push this crap on Islamics.

Andrew Stephenson are you serious? They always put themselves int he damn spotlight, and demanding things form others is not quietly living your life. And validating a mental disorder is not progressive , it is regressive. Why do people like you think any kind of change is progress? And who the hell are you to decide what is diversity or not?

And what else should trans be banned from?

Um maybe working at costco, our local one should definitely be called queerco, some even have similar socks as Jihadi Justine

The pendulum had to swing following Obama’s decision, remember there was roughly six months left of his term when he mandated a social experiment on the the military. If it was such a good decision to begin with, why did Obama wait 7.5 yrs?
On so many different levels, Obama undermined the military, and, foisted this on the troops.
The taxpayer is not responsible for supporting the delusional thinking of the gender dysphoric individual or pay for hormones and genital mutilation.
This article is interesting.

The Right is also using Transgenderism as a weapon – and in Trump’s case, dog-whistle politics, attacking otherwise innocent bystanders to “virtue signal” to the Republican base. The military is more concerned about not knowing what the hell’s going on, than transgender individuals themselves, and things like the bathroom rules are unenforceable against “stealthed” individuals.

I strongly suspect they would rather just live their lives, without all the attention. That includes not being called insane at every turn just because traditionalists are afraid of diversity.
commented 2017-07-30 18:06:05 -0400
It proves the degree of mental illness when insanity becomes normal, while normality becomes insane.

Gender-Dysphoria is a mental illness. Full stop. Treat it as such. Disturbing behavior has no place in normal society.

I remember a time, long ago, when the lunatics were kept IN the asylum rather than anyplace BUT the asylum…Memories.

Space Moose said, “And what else should trans be banned from?”
Right off the bat I would say, shelters for battered women. Read up on what happened in Surrey BC

I don’t think any profession where you are issued a gun or rifle etc…to do your job.
