Transgender: We're 'Medically Reliant' Like Diabetic, Asthmatic; 'Should Be Disqualified' from Miltary
CNS NEWS reports from The Blaze:
"We should be disqualified at enlistment because we are medically reliant"
Reacting to President Trump's announcement preventing transgender people in the military, Edie Dixon, a transgender man who identifies as a woman, told the Blaze on July 27 that he agrees with the president's decision, saying that transgenders are "no better" than diabetics or asthmatics, and "should be disqualified" from the military.
According to the Blaze, Dixon is a Trump supporter and a resident of Oregon.
When the Blaze's Allie Stuckey asked Dixon for his reaction to Trump's announcement last week, Dixon replied, "I'm actually very satisfied. This is Trump showing that he is a president for equality, because this isn't about transgender people, this is about transgender treatment.
"And if you look at the medical disqualifying guidelines of the military that they use, we are medically reliant, and therefore disqualifies us," he continued.
"We are no better than diabetics. We are no better than asthmatics. We should be disqualified at enlistment because we are medically reliant," stated Dixon.
