Why stop people who want to serve?

The Herald reports:

US President Donald Trump has banned transgender people from serving in the military “in any capacity”.

Trump shot off three tweets Wednesday morning, US time, to make the surprise announcement.

“After consultation with my generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the US military,” he tweeted.

I’d be grateful to any citizen who volunteers to risk their life serving the country and wouldn’t get a shit about whether their gender identity is the same as their birth gender.
