The House of Representatives will meet today on the House floor to vote on an amendment that will block the Pentagon from forcing female soldiers to shower with men as part of former President Obama’s ‘transgender training’.
The Rules Committee approved the amendment on Wednesday, and House members will vote on the amendment Thursday, July 13. The Hartzler amendment is named for Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.), who wrote it.
The amendment will block former President Obama’s controversial policy to build “dignity and respect” for “transgender Soldiers.”
If passed, the bill will also cut funding for expensive medical treatment “related to gender transition to a person entitled to medical care.”
Hartzler estimates that the cost of sex change surgeries alone could reach to $1.35 billion over the next 10 years.
The Army does not require gender confused men to undergo a sex change. Gender confused men must present a doctor’s note confirming they suffer from gender dysphoria. The Army then changes his “gender marker” to “female” in DEERS [the Army’s personnel system – Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System].
Gender confused men will then be allowed to shower and bunk with biological women.
Presentation slides from the Army’s PowerPoint guidance class were leaked to The Federalist blog.
The transgender training modules lowers women’s resistance to showering with naked men. Women are instructed not to expect privacy and to ignore the reality that men have penises.
One of the Training Modules states:
“Following her transition from male to female (which did not include sex reassignment surgery) and gender marker change in DEERS, a transgender Soldier begins using female barracks, bathroom, and shower facilities. Because she did not undergo a surgical change, the Soldier still has male genitalia.”
Additionally, female soldiers are cautioned not to cover themselves or turn away from gender confused men in the shower so as not to insult or humiliate them.
Obama’s transgender military policy was scheduled to go into effect on July 1st.
But on June 30, Defense Secretary James Mattis postponed full implementation of Obama’s policy for six months while the Pentagon “studies” its effect on military morale.
Currently there are 15,000 gender confused soldiers serving in the military.
