Interesting article, especially since the first paper on this topic took place in 1988 titled, “Transsexuals in the Military: Flight into Hypermasculinity.” This reminds me of a transwoman who was part of the Discovery Channel’s series: Changing Sexes: Male to Female. Before she came out and began her transition she was special ops with the marines. If you can find that documentary, I recommend checking it out.
Note before clicking that link: there is a lot of misgendering going on in this article. It’s a short article but it still missteps quite impressively there. Also, there are currently very few comments, but as always with news articles, exercise caution in reading them.
