I recently read a small book with four case studies entitled Beyond Trans: Does Gender Matter? that was interesting though probably could have been longer to deal with the somewhat absolutist position. Today, on the anniversary of desegregation in the military, Trump tweeted trans "in any capacity" cannot serve in the military. The cost reason offered is specious. It's a blatant wedge issue move. This after over twenty House Republicans joined the effort to vote down a ban on the Pentagon paying for gender transition.
