Why the Temporary Halt on Military Transgender Ban?

There are three huge things going on right now with Trumpís stupid ban on transgender military service:

1) Possible nuclear war with North Korea has halted the ban.
A White House source recently told The Washington Blade that Trumpís official guidance on banning trans military members (a guidance known as ďA Guidance Policy for Open Transgender Service Phase OutĒ) was expected to arrive on Defense Secretary James Mattisí desk sometime around Aug. 7, 2017.

However, after Trump started trading nuclear threats with North Korea over Twitter ó sweet god, is this the world we actually live in right now? ó Mattis ďsent a message to major U.S. commands telling them that all other issues Ďwere to be temporarily sidelinedíĒ amid the rising threat of war. The message reportedly said, ďAnything that affects military strength and readiness, specifically troop numbers, will be put on hold.Ē

2) Trumpís trans military ban will cost nearly $1 billion, says a new study. A new report from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, and the Palm Center ó an organization that studies LGBT military issues ó said that Trumpís ban will cost $960 million to fully instate. The report figured that it costs $75,000 to recruit and train each of the 12,800 transgender people currently serving in the military, effectively flushing all that money down the toilet.

3) Five active trans military members are suing over the banís personal harms.The National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) and GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) have filed a lawsuit in a U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. opposing Trumpís ban. Their lawsuit represents five anonymous transgender plaintiffs: three army soldiers, one air force air-person and one member of the Coast Guard, all on active duty.

The lawsuit challenges the ban over the potential loss of professions, livelihoods and post-military and retirement benefits faced by trans military servicemembers who would be kicked out should the ban ever go into effect.

Their lawsuit follows one filed last week by the LGBTQ advocacy group Lambda Legal and the association for actively serving LGBT military personnel and veterans, OutServe-SLDN. The American Civil Liberties Union has promised to file a lawsuit as well.

Once again, our fearless and wise leader, thought long and hard before tweeting his political strategy and policies in the early morning hours.

There should be no transgender in the military.. you either are a man or woman.

Or you have had Surgery to change it.

if you have a penis you are a man in the military

if you have a vagina you are a woman.

That is what Trump's statements directed.

You *do* realize that after gender altering surgery, you're a transgendered person, right?

...not, of course, that it has anything to do with the issue of this thread.
