I corrected the title to say "sex" and not "gender." Gender refers to grammar and the constant misuse makes me crazy. Another case of everyone misusing the word, so the misused word become the norm... No doubt misused because so many people are uptight about using the word sex. Anyway:

The Pentagon has paid for an infantry soldier to undergo gender transition surgery after a federal judge blocked President Trump's ban on transgender service members last month. The soldier, who identifies as a woman, became the first active-duty service member to receive such an operation paid for by the Defense Department when she went under the knife.


Like so many things, once you open that door, it's nearly impossible to close it. I hope the ordinary military member comes around to accepting these changes.
