The U.S. Transgender military ban is now a reality.
The men and women who serve the country must adhere to their birth sex.
This change comes nearly two years after President Trump tweeted that he wanted a transgender ban.
Part of his statement said the country “cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption” of transgender issues.
There are some exceptions to the rule that blocks transgender people from serving, including gender dysphoria.
According to the National Center for Transgender equality there are roughly 15,000 transgender people in the military.
