The Supreme Court has reinstated President Trump's order to restrict transgender persons from serving in the military. The move was prompted by a concern to maintain optimum military readiness. Advocates of transgender rights said it was a human rights issue and that the military shouldn't discriminate. But opponents of transgenderism in the armed forces said the military isn't a social proving grounds and that providing hormone therapy and sex-change operations is harmful to people and the recovery time sidelines them from military duty. The purpose of the military is to create a cohesive, strong fighting force. When the military participates in someone's gender confusion, military readiness is compromised.  The Supreme Court recognized that the president's policy was reasonable and in the best interest of our nation's national security.
