No Transgender for the NBA !

For those who never served in the military — the military is an organization that is a war fighting group, not a social group.
Not all discrimination is bad. There are no blind commercial airline pilots for good reason! 

Transgender is a social construct, and unmeasurable. When Bruce Jenner’s bones are discovered 1,000 years hence, those bones will be declared those of a male. How Bruce felt about his gender is unmeasurable, just like his politics, his love for his mother, and his sex life. 

Nothing that diminishes the military unit cohesion should be considered. Just because the general population doesn’t understand unit cohesion, doesn’t mean that the military — whose lives are at stake, while the general population’s are not— should suffer. Until robots take over War fighting, the psyche of the war fighters determines success. 

Trump’s decision not to further mess with our minds is the right decision. Warriors are a subset of any society, and institutional war fighting skills are something in the DNA of few. There is a difference between serving and fighting.

We should not require that the NBA enlist Transgender, nor should we require it of the military.
