U.S. Army Forces Officers to Undergo Training on ‘Gender Identity’

In the latest revelation of far-left ideologies being forced upon the United States military, new documents show that U.S. Army officers are being ordered to undergo training sessions on how to deal with soldiers with “gender dysphoria.”

According to the Washington Free Beacon, the presentation in question is titled “Policy on the Military Service of Transgender Persons and Persons with Gender Dysphoria.” The slideshow was displayed to officers in early February, with the officers being given further instructions on how to train their subordinates on the same matter.

The slides were leaked by a whistleblower from the Army Special Forces, and their authenticity was confirmed as “mandatory training” by a spokesman for the Army. The spokesman further confirmed that everyone in the Army, from officers to supervisors to soldiers, will be forced to complete the training by September 30th.

“The Army allows transgender soldiers to serve openly,” the presentation says in one of the slides. “An otherwise qualified soldier shall not be involuntarily separated, discharged, or denied reenlistment or continuation of service on the basis of gender identity.”

In one scenario given by the presentation, so-called “transgender” soldiers who were born male but identify as female may still be treated as their biological gender while on-duty if they do not request it, even if they choose to live as a woman while off-duty. However, if such a soldier “later requests to be identified as a female during duty hours and/or experiences increased distress relating to his gender identity,” then the superior officer has to “inform [the] soldier of the Army’s transgender policy and recommend that he sees a military medical provider.”

“Gender transition in the Army begins when a soldier receives a diagnosis from a military medical provider indicating that gender transition is medically necessary,” the presentation continues.

Furthermore, the policy declares that officers in the Army “should approach a soldier’s gender transition in the same way they approach any soldier receiving any other necessary medical treatment.”

The training is part of a broader Army policy first announced in June of 2021 which allowed “transgenders” to serve openly, as part of a larger effort by the Biden Administration to force left-wing ideas on the whole of the United States military. “Transgenderism” is the false and scientifically-debunked notion that there are more than two genders, and that anyone can suddenly “change” their gender at any given time; it had previously been classified as a mental illness by such leading medical institutions as Johns Hopkins University, where it was officially named “gender dysphoria.”
