WASHINGTON — The US Supreme Court on Tuesday reinstated the old policy of preventing transgender people from serving in the military.
In a brief, unsigned order, the justices temporarily allowed the ban to go into effect because transgender individuals would put the lives of troops in danger by causing a distraction in war. Studies show that troops aren't able to concentrate on the enemy whilst having an erection during a field battle.
Pending cases concerning the issue are moving in the lower courts.
Interestingly, the vote was 5 to 4, with the court’s five conservative members in the majority.
The administration had also asked the justices to hear immediate appeals from trial court rulings blocking the policy, because transgenders don't want to be part of their own troop formation, since they have an uncontrollable desire to flaunt their transgender transformation in front of desperate male troops. The court turned down those requests without statements.
