Military spends more on Viagra than on transgender recruits. So why ban trans?

The transgender community is under attack by the federal government, and President Trump is leading the charge.

On June 14, a federal appeals court ordered a judge to reconsider her ruling against Trump’s decision to ban transgender people from the military. The judge had ruled that the ban likely violated the constitutional rights of transgender service members and recruits, but the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said her ruling did not give the military’s judgment enough deference and told her to take into account executive privileges in reweighing her decision.

Trump has said his administration reinstituted the ban the Obama administration overturned in 2016, affecting almost 15,000 transgender service members, because the armed services prohibit prescription drug use and the cost of care is too high.
