White House is expected to send guidelines to Pentagon regarding the banning of transgender in the military soon.

The news of the Transgender ban was announced by President Donald Trump nearly a month ago, but the complete rules have just been completed recently.

Transgender Military ban in the US

According to the Wall Street Journal, the memo from the White House is a "two-and-a-half-page document," where it gives the Pentagon directing Defense Secretary Jim Mattis a full six months to implement the rules regarding the transgender ban in the military.

It also orders the Defense Department to reject transgender individuals and to stop spending on the medications necessary for those who are currently serving in the military.

The basis of the admission of the transgender to participate in the service will be based on their “deployability,” which means their capability to serve in the war zone.

According to The Tylt, "Mr. Mattis under the new policy is expected to consider “deployability”—the ability to serve in a war zone, participate in exercises or live for months on a ship—as the primary legal means to decide whether to separate service members from the military, the officials said."

On July 26, President Trump posted on Twitter that there is no way he will allow transgender to join the military, which is a reversal of the policy implemented in Pentagon by former president Barack Obama during his administration.

Transgender ban: a great favor to the United States?

President Trump said that he did Pentagon a “great favor” by prohibiting transgender people to serve in the military.

The issue is way complicated anyway, he added, and that it is confusing for the military.

In line with the White House’s declaration of the transgender ban, five transgender members of the US military, including Afghanistan and Iraq war veterans, filed a case against President Trump earlier this month.

The lawsuit says that the ban was decided without prior consultation of the senior military commanders. However, Joseph Dunford, a military commander released a memo a day after Trump’s tweet that there will be no changes in the policy until the Pentagon received an official order from the president.

In an interview with the former president of LGBT military organization, Sparta, Sue Fulton said regarding the issue of “deployability” that transgender people are as deployable and as capable to be in the military just as the other service members.

The orders to discontinue military spending on necessary medications relating to gender dysphoria is a complete reversal of what was ordered by Obama, allowing transgender people to receive medication through the military.
