Objectivity 4.4 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.7

The U.S. Army is considering a policy that would allow officers to request a transfer to a different area if they feel offended by state or local laws against their gender perception.  Sex, religion, race, or pregnancy could also be cited as discriminatory by the service member looking to move.  “The policy would ostensibly sanction soldiers to declare that certain states are too racist, too homophobic, too sexist or otherwise discriminatory to be able to live there safely and comfortably,” Military.com reported.
