Thank you for publishing my photograph, @ShoutOutJMU, the James Madison University feminist blog. I support voices from the future, especially ones who say:
The wording of the policy is shotty, to say the least. Certain transgender folk are able to serve in the military if they are at least three years “stable” after starting hormones or undergoing surgery (not sure what “stable” means, but go off, I guess), or if their gender dysphoria diagnosis does not require a “change in gender.” Judging by the language, I’m ~pretty~ sure no LGBTQ+ related individuals were involved in the creation of this policy.
A reminder that the combined nursing, medical, and allied health professions, representing over 3.6 million clinicians, have spoken (multiple times) in support for humans of all genders being respected and represented in all of society. The health system I work for has also stated that our physicians will continue to develop world class care programs in transgender person health (See: Kaiser Permanente will continue its care for transgender people even if federal requirements are removed – Permanente Medicine)
With this in mind, I want to offer an amendment to the statement also made in the piece, “We’re living in the future and it sucks.” With future leaders like this, it’s really #ThisCenturyBestCentury. Trust me.
