Transgender Soldiers

Now that practicing homosexuals are allowed in our military, what comes next? Would you believe soldiers in skirts? This is not about women in the military, but about those who practice cross-dressing—passing themselves off as members of the opposite sex.

One of the groups that led the charge for gays in the military is now asking President Obama to outlaw discrimination based on what they label as “gender-identity.” That's the term they use for transsexuals, cross-dressers, and those who have had sex-change operations.

This group, calling themselves the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, is talking about filing lawsuits if President Obama doesn't issue an order saying that cross-dressing is okay among soldiers, sailors and airmen.

Those who push the radical sexual agenda aren't letting up. Every time they're given something they want, they come right back and ask for more.
