The Army has reportedly begun enforcing a mandatory transgender sensitivity training program designed to teach soldiers transgender shower etiquette and the proper way to deal with male soldiers who become pregnant.

According to USA Today, the training is “compulsory for all officers, non-commissioned officers and civilians who work with soldiers” and stemmed from a decision made by former Defense Secretary Ash Carter “to rescind the military’s ban on transgender troops.”

“The training module specifically outlines key roles and responsibilities of commanders, transgender soldiers, military medical providers and administrative management organizations,” said Army spokeswoman Lt. Col. Jennifer Johnson in an email according to USA Today.

USA Today further reports that “the Army has planned the training for months in order to meet the July 1 deadline,” in reference to a decree by former President Barack Obama that all branches of the military implement plans for inclusion of transgender personnel by July 1.

Some officers have already completed the module, which takes 50 minutes.

According to Fox News, the training module states that “soldiers must accept living and working conditions that are often austere, primitive, and characterized by little or no privacy.”

As such, the module reportedly states, transgender individuals will not be granted a separate washroom but will use bathrooms that match their gender identity.

That reportedly includes transgender soldiers who have not undergone gender reassignment surgery.

The module also reportedly states that “transgender soldiers with a medical condition, including pregnancy, will be treated the same as any other soldier with that condition.”

Fox News further cites Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty executive director Ron Crews as calling for Defense Secretary James Mattis to put an end to the “nonsense.”

“Millions of dollars and training hours have been consumed with lectures on how to deploy transgender personnel in a war zone that has laws against that behavior,” Crews reportedly said.

“Military commanders should be focused on fighting wars, not on how to deal with transgender personnel.”

Many people online appear to agree.

Despite the speed with which things appear to be progressing, Mattis could pause the Obama-era push for acceptance of transgender soldiers.

As reported previously, the Pentagon is currently “intensely reviewing” the push, which could see the July 2017 deadline for measures to be put in place allowing transgender soldiers to enrol pushed back indefinitely.

    No amount of “training” will make me sensitive to this. Afterall, it is not me who has the problem!!!

    Male soldiers who become pregnant? Males can’t get pregnant. Sounds like the need to correct this bit of misinformation instead of rewrite and reteach simple biology to adults.

    Omg, certainly not the same Army I left 20 years ago. DJT / Mad Dog Mattis have some clean up to do! Pathetic! The only thing I clearly remember is the commanding officers telling us to go out and grab some pussy when being dismissed for time off 😉

    Since when do men get pregnant? This farce needs to stop.

  • Jim Trent

    I asked some crazy liberals just how far do they take this stupidity? I said what happens if a guy claims he is a female and then claims he is pregnant? Do you put him on light duty and other things like pregnant women are? They said no because a simple pregnancy test would reveal they are not. I said and an even cheaper test of drop your pants would reveal they are not a female. So your point is? I got called all kinds of names…

    Calling Gen. Mattis. Sir, stop the political correctness in the military. If someone needs to be treated like a princes, while everybody else acts like a soldier then that not being fair to the soldiers. That’s what they signed up for, that’s what they are expected to be and what they expect from each other.

    What a sad state of affairs. The suicide rate of transgender men is nearly 50%, even after transgender surgery. This may fly with staff and supply jobs, but putting a person highly prone to self-destruction in a kill or be killed environment surrounded by weapons and munitions is incredibly risky to them and everyone around them. And no amount of power points and memos is going to change the alpha-dominant military because they exist for one and only one reason: to close with and kill the enemy.

  • Jesus Christ

    I’ll be ok with this if and only if all the transgenders are put into a single troop and sent on the front line.

    • Helookalikaman79

      aww the front line to scary for you? You have to send people that have more strength and courage to the job for you????

  • webkilla

    On the plus side then anyone requiring constant hormone replacement therapy and whatnot aren’t likely to qualify for any kind of really important combat roles due to their “medical conditions”

  • SteveO

    There is no way anyone could go through that training without giggling at least once at the shear silliness of it all.

  • Helookalikaman79

    ah, if you do not want transgender people in the military, then take your hetero ass to a recruitment station… if every branch had so many of you macho alpha men volunteers they wouldn’t need transgendered people whom are willing to die for your right to verbally bash them… among your other freedoms… You guys are truly men, the testosterone just pours out of you all… And yes I served !
