Elaine Donnelly Fears Military Will 'Become A Magnet' For Transgender Service Members
Anti-LGBT activist Elaine Donnelly said yesterday that a push to end the ban on transgender military service members will create an “incentive” for people seeking sex reassignment surgery to join the Armed Forces, turning the military into a transgender “magnet.”
In an interview with Janet Mefferd, the Center for Military Readiness head criticized the Palm Center and prominent donor Jennifer Pritzker, a transgender veteran and billionaire, for its study that called for an end on the ban on transgender service.
“Why doesn’t she take her billion-plus dollars and set up a hospital there in San Francisco and they can do the transgender surgery, the very expensive hormonal treatments both before and after, instead of expecting the military to be the source of this very specialized and expensive medical treatment?” Donnelly asked.
“Now some people can see an incentive that would be created if young people who for whatever reason are confused about their sexuality — why, who knows, it baffles me — but if they decide, ‘well I know that my medical benefits are going to be covered,’ and so you join the military and if you know the military has to pay all of these medical benefits, then it becomes like a magnet.”
“The military is not there to be a magnet for people who have personal problems or medical problems or are sexually confused or whatever, it’s there to defend the country,” she added.
