Thanks for publishing my photo @OUPAcademic. It’s a good analysis by Anna Weismann from University of Florida describing the challenge of a society working to catch up with science.
Fortunately, the medical profession has caught up and is now a voice for health in the most unequivocal manner 😀
Transgender individuals are serving their country with honor, and they should be allowed to continue doing so. https://t.co/nJ9jmxnKBz pic.twitter.com/VKnd0HxERB

On 26 July, 2017, President Trump tweeted his plan to ban transgender individuals from serving in the military.
