The House on Thursday approved an amendment to the annual defense policy bill aimed at reversing President Trump’s policy banning most transgender people from serving in the military.

The amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) would enshrine in law that any person who meets gender-neutral occupational standards can serve in the military regardless of race, color, national origin, religion or sex, including gender identity or sexual orientation.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Over the last three years, 14,000 transgender service members have served openly and successfully,” said Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), the sponsor of the amendment. “All five service chiefs affirmed they do not hamper lethality or cohesion. Malice and ignorance cannot stop us giving medical care to those brave enough to serve. We know what transgender service members bring to the fight; let them bring it.”

The amendment passed 242-187, largely along party lines.

    Gender neutral occupation standards? That isn’t the point. They are mentally ill people in my opinion. They need medical help alright, but it shouldn’t be on the military’s dime. If there are really 14K serving already, the medical costs must be staggering.

    No! We shouldn’t have to pay their damn medical bills as they’re transitioning or deal with the bullshit that comes along with putting hormones in your body that doesn’t belong there! The point is that they will never be battle ready! They’ll be in the corner crying cuz the hormones are out of whack! This is pure bullshit! I hope it gets vetoed!
