A new study published in the JAMA shows that people who suffer from gender identity disorders are overrepresented in the military by 2-1 when compared to the civilian population.

Gender dysphoria is a mental condition in which the sufferer believes they were born in the wrong body.

In the JAMA: The Journal of the American Medical Association, a study found that the number of enlisted personnel suffering from gender dysphoria has risen since the Pentagon lifted its ban on transgender people serving in the military under former President Obama.

Incredibly, lead author Dr. Natasha Schivey couldn't figure out why so many transgenders are enlisting in the military for free hormones and free sex change surgeries.

She told Reuters Health that the prevalence of gender confused individuals in the military "seems to come as a surprise to people".

In 2016, Dr. Schivey and her colleagues surveyed 204 doctors at a meeting after the transgender ban was lifted.

74.3% percent of the doctors surveyed said they did not receive adequate training to care for soldiers suffering from gender dysphoria.

52.9 percent of the doctors surveyed said they would not provide hormones to treat gender dysphoria even if they received the training. This revelation would have ended their military careers under for President Obama.

    Does that mean they aren't providing viagra either?

    Come on........if this is a part of a medical regime required for their transition and they are paying the co-pay fees and are honest to the service about this......why is it a problem?

    Next they gonna say no abortions for service woman, no morning after pills. etc.

    It's interesting to me that this is free or covered by health insurance. If someone said, I feel like I was born in the wrong body. My measurements should be 36/24/36. My breasts should be bigger and my nose needs to be fixed. Their insurance is going to be like #NotMyProblem.

  • Miany

    I don't think insurance covers morning after pills or abortions tho.

  • MissyJ

    Your doctor can already refuse to write you a script or deny a service. Health insurance does not cover elective abortions or morning after pill...

  • Phillybruh

    LOL if its diagnosed while in the military it becomes a service connection and they WILL treat it at the VA's!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Most may not cover abortions, but some do cover morning after pills.

  • Elevated Soul

    Taxpayers should not be paying for the whims of these confused people.

  • Phillybruh

    Then taxpayers shouldn't enter into 2 or 3 year contracts with these individuals because for the rest of the veterans life their problems are the taxpayers and believe me they have a lot. Transgender issues is mild compared to what comes through the VA
