The Spanish Government has just approved a reform that allows transsexuals or men without a penis to join the armed forces.
The ministerial order overturns a medical restriction that has been in place for the past 20 years. I wonder how Franco handled this?
The associations of Gays and transsexuals have welcomed the decision because they say, no doubt correctly, that the law was an indignity and violated the rights of the individual.
The situation reached a head some months ago when a young transsexual of 29 years denounced the Armed Forces because it refused to allow him to enlist because he lacked the necessary male equipment.
Transsexuals who in the past have kept their penis and testicles were able to enlist, whilst those who didn’t, couldn’t.
Of course in days of old all they were interested in was that you could aim and shoot and nobody worried whether you were packing a piece or not.
However I must admit that if a kilted force – the famous ladies or in this case the lads from hell - who traditionally wear nothing under their skirts, attacked then raised their hems to reveal nothing underneath, it might, just might, have the enemy running off faster than you’d imagine.
Unless of course... no don’t go there
