In a move divorced from any sane concept of reality whatsoever, the Pentagon has released a "Sex change" manual. See here.
... the Pentagon has sent out a detailed written instruction to commanders on how a service member can change his or her sex in a step-by-step process that allows for extended time off.
The directive restricts personnel from living their “preferred gender” lifestyle, or “Real Life Experience,” on a military base among peers until the sex change transition is complete.
The Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy must set up a bureaucracy — dubbed the Service Central Coordination Cell — to guide commanders overseeing sex change transitions.
A service member’s commander plays a big role in shepherding the patient through the sex transition. This starts with approving government-funded medical treatment of genital reconstruction surgery and hormone therapy, and then recovery, and then the final phase of determining the member’s fitness to return to duty after he or she receives a new official “gender marker.”
Commanders must hold training sessions to indoctrinate troops on transgender issues and nondiscrimination.
Any flag-rank officer who does not immediately resign their commission in protest is a sycophant coward. (Of course, virtually all the senior officers with any principle whatsoever have already either left in disgust or were fired long ago.)
