After the implementation by Target to alter all their bathroom facilities to be transgender friendly, it didn’t take long for the public outcry and the threats of boycott. There were stories upon stories of female customers who were cornered while inside one of the restrooms by a large man claiming to be a woman. Children were feeling threatened as well.
This would be all fine and good if we were talking about sitting in a restaurant or a going to a movie, but when it comes to the personal hygiene and restroom visitations, Americans are relatively private about their bodily functions behind closed doors. Even public showers in community swimming pools and country clubs have enough walls and vestibules and partitions to afford a certain level of privacy for that very reason.
Enter the United States military and the special brand of regressivism known as Barack Hussein Obama. The former president in his zeal to secure a long-lasting legacy of colossal proportions, okayed the formation of a set of all-encompassing transgender/transsexual rules that would facilitate the personal restroom and shower behavior for soldiers in the presence of trans service members.
Female soldiers must give “dignity and respect” to transsexual men who join them in their shared shower rooms, according to training manuals leaked by soldiers in a mandatory class.
But this “dignity and respect” is a one-way street, according to the training slides, which were developed by officials working for former President Barack Obama. “Transgender Soldiers are not required or expected to modify or adjust their behavior based on the fact that they do not ‘match’ other Soldiers,” according to the slides, which were first leaked by TheFederalist.com.
The insistence that women remain mute when a man enters their shower room “shows a lack of respect for the vast majority of service members [because] no consideration is given to their feeling about this circumstances,” said Peter Sprigg, senior policy studies expert at the Family Research Council in Washington.
Female soldiers in showers are supposed to ignore visible biology and “act as if nothing has happened when some male … is all of a sudden in the shower room with them,” said Austen Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute. “This is a flat-out humiliation of women.
Female soldiers will not even be allowed to cover themselves because it could signal a lack of “respect” for the transsexual man in the shower, Ruse said.
The Circus of the Ridiculous…that’s what our military has been reduced to if these rules are actually instituted. For now, the article points out that Defense Secretary Mattis has suspended the implementation of these asinine rules in an effort to keep the military sane.
This, however, is a disturbing trend among Leftists who feel it is their moral imperative to force counter-culture upon the American people in an effort to advance their lop-sided, unnatural agenda. Hopefully, more objective minds will prevail and this transgender appeasement nonsense will be put to bed.
