Seemingly never tired of "struggling against reality," the Obama administration Pentagon has decided to allow "transgenders" to openly serve in the U.S. military. At a press conference today, Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter said,
I'm announcing today that we're ending the ban on transgender Americans in the United States military. Effective immediately, transgender Americans may serve openly, and they can no longer be discharged or otherwise separated from the military just for being transgender.Poor Max Klinger would've been devastated, as would have the television executives at CBS. For the first seven seasons of the legendary TV show M*A*S*H*, CBS garnered millions of laughs from Americans who watched Corporal Max Klinger dress up as a woman in a silly attempt to garner a "Section 8" and a discharge from the U.S. Army. Leave it to the Obama administration to undermine one of the greatest television shows of all time.
Oh well, at least M*A*S*H* provides us with an opportunity. In its desire to accommodate all things perverse, and in order to make transgenders feel more comfortable, I'm sure the Obama administration would not object to new military dress for soldiers who wish to carry on in the Max Klinger tradition. Thus, using Klinger as inspiration, I've come up with new uniforms for the U.S. Army. (The other branches of the military can do their own Google search.)
For a combat uniform, here are three options:
For formal affairs, there is Army Service Uniform. Fortunately, Klinger was not shy about sporting dressier outfits.
Note all ensembles come with a cover, with the center and the right option also coming with a jacket. The umbrella in the first outfit also doubles as a weapon to use against those not properly progressive enough when it comes to the practice of men dressing as women, and vice versa.
Of course, we need even our trans-troops to remain in top physical condition. (They have to be able to run in heels, right?) Thus, we must provide them with a physical training uniform.
Klinger was so diversified in his attempts to get out of the Army that he provides us with literally hundreds of additional options should the need arise. There's his maternity line:
There's the wedding line:
The patriotic line (for when important dignitaries are on base):
And lastly, the escape line, for when our trans-troops decide it's time to go AWOL:
Once airborne, it's foolproof, as from the ground one will appear as a big red bird, with fuzzy pink feet.
