Political correctness has now infected the U.S. Army, where female soldiers have been ordered to give “dignity and respect” to transgender men showering alongside them, according to training manuals leaked by soldiers in a mandatory class.
“Transgender Soldiers are not required or expected to modify or adjust their behavior based on the fact that they do not ‘match’ other Soldiers,” according to the slides, first leaked by The Federalist. See below:
Peter Sprigg, senior policy studies expert at the Family Research Council in Washington, said the rule "shows a lack of respect for the vast majority of service members [because] no consideration is given to their feeling about this circumstances."
This circumstance requires female soldiers to "act as if nothing has happened when some male … is all of a sudden in the shower room with them,” said Austen Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute.
“This is a flat-out humiliation of women. … Females will have their dignity and respect violated [and] they are being told this does not matter even a little bit,” he added.
Leftists quick to say the women can always cover themselves would be mistaken, because that could signal a lack of "respect," Ruse added.
This represents a broader trend among nations who have accepted transsexuals into their militaries, including Sweden, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
