eldersA controversial ex-surgeon general, fired by President Bill Clinton after recommending children be taught how to masturbate, now has released a report advocating the incorporation of transgendered people into the U.S. military, and contending that a 40 percent attempted suicide rate and 43 percent burden of “additional psychiatric diagnoses” constitute no reason to exclude them from America’s armed forces. The report comes from the Palm Center at San Francisco State University, a sex issues-oriented think tank, and concludes that as people understand more now today about sexual deviation, there “is no compelling medical reason” for the U.S. military to bar transgenders. The study also suggests Barack Obama could bypass Congress and order the change himself.
