Army Training Mandates Soldiers Shower With Transgender Persons Of Opposite Sex

 July 8, 2022

According Breitbart News, in an Army training slide they obtained, soldiers are instructed to shower with transgender members of the opposite sex. This is despite the fact that they may have not undergone surgical “transition”. This essentially means their external bodies have not been surgically altered to suit their psyche. They may still have the natural external bodies they were born with.

In the training, this slide further instructs soldiers, using a “vignette”, on what to do if they encounter a female soldier who identifies as male, but has not surgically transitioned and still has “female genitalia.” This information is in keeping with the Department of Defense’s, personnel tracking system, known as Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS),

The slide was entitled “Soldier/Unit Training Barracks, Bathrooms, and Showers,” and reads:

(Vignette) “Following his transition from female to male (which did not include sex reassignment surgery) and gender marker change in DEERS, a transgender Soldier begins using male barracks, bathroom, and shower facilities. Because he did not undergo a surgical change, the Soldier still has female genitalia.”

The slide further instructs that-

“Soldiers must accept living and working conditions that are often austere, primitive, and characterized by little or no privacy. … Understand anyone may encounter individuals in barracks, bathrooms, or shower facilities with physical characteristics of the opposite sex despite having the same gender marker in DEERS.” Adding that they (soldiers) be “respectful of the privacy and modesty concerns of others,” but that “transgender Soldiers are not required or expected to modify or adjust their behavior based on the fact that they do not ‘match’ other Soldiers.”

As a warning to soldiers, the presentation cites that violations of Equal Opportunity (EO) policies may result in disciplinary actions under the Uniform Code of Military Justice and that EO policies-

 “apply to working, living, and recreational environment (on and off-post, during duty and non-duty hours).”

Further, soldiers are told to discuss with their chain of command, any concerns or questions they may have.

As part of this presentation, it is explained that a soldier’s gender transition is considered administratively “complete” once the soldier has completed the –

“medical care necessary to achieve stability in the self-identified gender,” but that this medical care is essentially the “medical process identified or approved by a military medical provider in a documented medical treatment plan” and “often does not include surgical treatment.” And further- “Once gender transition is complete and the Soldier’s gender marker in DEERS is changed, the Soldier is expected to adhere to all military standards associated with the Soldier’s gender marker in DEERS and use billeting, bathroom, and shower facilities in accordance with the DEERS gender marker,”.

This training presentation is now mandatory for all soldiers, following the Biden administration’s January 2021 order, to the Department of Defense, that all qualified transgender persons be allowed to join the military and serve openly. This order reversed a policy under the Trump administration that prohibited transgender persons with gender dysphoria from serving.

According to the Free Beacon, which obtained differing slides from the same training, these presentation slides represent slightly altered scenarios from those circulated in the past. Dated August 2021, this presentation was  distributed to soldiers earlier this year in March.

In a statement to Breitbart News, Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), a Navy reservist and member of the House Armed Services Committee, declared-

 “Every soldier I know just wants to spend their day working hard to keep America safe and it’s shameful that they’re being forced to sit through these pointless and partisan trainings.”


“Our adversaries aren’t wasting their time with this stuff. We need to get serious about countering the serious threats we face abroad,”

Diversity, equity and inclusion have reached new lows in the seemingly progressive pentagon, our armed services leadership and ultimately the administration. That Biden himself, has no problem putting our soldiers in this position, while pandering largely to these minorities is without question, a tragedy of epic proportion.

The collective must bend for the one, a real team building exercise that puts troops in harms way by departmental design – how brilliant of you Joe.

This kind of reorganized personal confusion adds to the psychological stressors of war. It will ultimately get our troops killed and give whatever enemy the advantage. While we are demonstrating “sensitivity” and acknowledging “gender transition completeness” during a conflict, requiring the utmost focus to win – distraction and confusion reigns. The result is that we possibly loose the battle and or those in the conflict. Unfathomable!

This circumstance, with its effects on our military, is one more huge point of failure, that we can lay squarely at the feet of the progressive administration of Joe Biden.

If we are to turn this insanity around, November needs to be more than a subtle message sent by voters. This is the armed services who collectively represent us as a nation. Does this really represent America ? – most certainly not. We already are a diverse people – we need not look for situations to divide us corporately. Our military already place themselves, in harm way for our best, must we add to their challenge just to serve?

“The soldier is the army. No army is better than its soldiers. The soldier is also a citizen. In fact, the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one’s country”.
