For the first time in history, the Israeli army has drafted a transgender female soldier, proving that a bullet is a bullet, regardless of the color of your finger nails.\n

The teenage girl arrived at an induction base near Tel Aviv.  During the checkups, she told the doctors about her gender-changing surgeries.  The army decided she was healthy enough to serve and there was no reason why she shouldn’t be wearing the sexy uniform.

In 1998 an Israeli transgender woman shocked the world by winning the Eurovision song contest.  These days another transgendered Israeli is making history.  Holy change!  Wonder if now the rest of the world’s armies will have to learn to keep up.
