When Military Service Becomes a Right

When Military Service Becomes a Right:

A planning commission on transgender military service recently concluded that it is possible to have in the armed forces “people whose sex at birth is opposite from who they know they are on the inside.”

This is the logical, if bizarre, endpoint of President Obama’s social engineering of the U.S. armed services. He has, as a practical matter, made service in uniform a right enjoyed by all, not a dangerous, but vital, role to be performed strictly by those most fit – physically and mentally – to be the warriors who protect the rest of us.

The question occurs: By the time Mr. Obama has imposed sexual identity-challenged transgender individuals, militant gays and lesbians, female ground combatants and illegal aliens on the military, will anyone we really need in it still be willing to serve?
