Transgenders Now Excused from Air Force Fitness Test. Because...Equality?!
We're living in icky times. Maybe even the strangest ever (See Govt. Creates Special Housing for Illegal… Transgenders?, and BlackLivesMatter Blasts Library…For Not Segregating Safe Spaces?!). Up is now down. In is now out. Boys are now girls. Progressives say they want equal rights and equal opportunities. What they really mean is they want special rights and special opportunities...because they're special. In that "special" way. The latest move to pervert all things normal? Transgenders in the Air Force are now exempt from fitness tests:
"Transgender airmen who are “transitioning” are now allowed to skip their physical fitness tests. Secretary of the Air Force Deborah James made it so by releasing the new “Air Force Policy Memorandum for In-Service Transition for Airmen Identifying as Transgender,” on October 6th.
Transgender Airmen who are in the middle of hormone treatment can ask to skip their physical fitness tests “during their period of transition, prior to a gender marker change in the MilPDS,” if they have already failed a test.
Deborah James said in a statement, “This is another step in allowing transgender Airmen to serve openly, receive medical care relating to gender transition and allow transgender individuals to join the Air Force…Our strengths as a military are the quality and character of our people, and those things that make us unique are the same things that make us strong.”
I'm no expert, but I always thought a military's strength was measured by its ability to blow things up better than the bad guys. Not by how many men wear dresses. Or how fabulous they look.
Fitness standards are traditionally required to ensure every man, woman, or non-binary genderqueer snowflake is able to meet any challenges they might face on the battlefield. Which, at least that I'm aware, have never included rapid lipstick deployment. Or twerking. Fake eyelash batting.
Trannies on deck.
Remember the "there's no I in Team" catchphrase? Turns out branches of the military value teamwork. Only because they tend to work in teams. So these standards are not only there for each individual's safety, but for the sake of EVERYONE ELSE. When soldiers are not up to snuff, they can get themselves and others killed. So if Samuel transitioning into Samantha has to adjust his/her bra during a mission, but lacks the proper forearm strength, then misses a key detail of said mission (hey, sometimes bras are uncomfortable), Tyrone to Tiffany might get killed. Or snag a nail. Both tragedies, yes, but avoidable. If only Sammy Snowboots had done those extra pull-ups.
And hey, what about that whole "equality" thing? I was under the impression, only because leftists lecture about it between mouthfuls of vegan cake, they wanted everyone to be "equal." Meaning "treated the same." How does exempting Jessie Von Pigtails from a fitness test as he/she recovers from a bewb job, "equal"? I'll wait.
It isn't. Leftists want the same privileges others enjoy but with none of the responsibilities that come with the them. A principle also absent in our government and everyday lives.
But hey, PROGRESS!
Let's also discuss how harmful transgenderism actually is...
