WHERE is Congress on court’s (self-)mutilation of the military?

Conservative Review

Throughout our series on judicial tyranny, I’ve been trying to conjure up analogies and metaphors to describe the absurdity of judicial supremacism. Yet, no degree of absurdity or hyperbole could capture what was just promulgated from the mouth of a federal district judge.

Forget about legislating from the bench or even nullifying the Constitution; D.C. District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly issued an order Monday changing the laws of biology and ordered the Pentagon to admit anyone who decides to castrate themselves into the military by Jan. 1, 2018.

In October, Judge Kollar-Kotelly issued a shocking order hinting that plaintiffs suing President Trump’s policy on military enlistment were likely to succeed on the merits that there is a constitutional right for those to serve in the military while undergoing the mutilation process associated with the gender dysphoria illness.

The Trump administration filed an emergency motion to lift the injunction on the administration’s policies pending the outcome of the case, because the court’s order would “impose extraordinary burdens on the Department and the military services.” After all, it’s hard to deny that the logistical nightmare of dealing with “transgenderism” in the military is extremely disruptive, even beyond the issue of safety as it pertains to the mental illness.

Yet, Kollar-Kotelly dismissed their motion and legislated Jan. 1 as the day for armed forces to allow in those who engage in such self-mutilation. “[T]he court is not persuaded that defendants will be irreparably injured by allowing the accession of transgender individuals into the military beginning on January 1, 2018," wrote the Clinton-appointed judge.

The sick irony of “irreparable injury” is lost on this judge. How can any sane person think there is no irreparable harm to allowing the ultimate masochists into the military and create tremendous logistical and social problems with gender placement in units when the only irreparable injury taking place is the act of castration that she is now blessing as an inalienable right?

And make no mistake: It is a new right that she is creating, tailor-made, for the sexual identity movement. The military has disallowed masochism and mental illness among its ranks for years. Are the courts prepared to make a protected class for those who amputate their arms?

According to one survey, 41 percent of all those who identify as “transgender” in America attempted to commit suicide at least once in their lifetime. Their advocacy groups are forever decrying the need for more public sensitivity regarding the suicide problem, and their legal outlets, including the same groups suing in this case, are suing for designation status under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
