On Monday Obama’s Defense Secretary said the Pentagon’s ban on transgender individuals is outdated and the administration has ordered a study to end the practice. “The Defense Department’s current regulations regarding transgender service members are outdated and are causing uncertainty that distracts commanders from our core missions,” Ash Carter said in a statement.
“At a time when our troops have learned from experience that the most important qualification for service members should be whether they’re able and willing to do their job, our officers and enlisted personnel are faced with certain rules that tell them the opposite.”
Carter said a working group formed to study the policy will be led by his personnel undersecretary, Brad Carson. It will operate under the presumption so-called transgenders are capable of serving “without adverse impact on military effectiveness and readiness, unless and except where objective, practical impediments are identified.”
