Notable Quote: “Ireland said that he was happiest to see that there won’t be a “gray area” for airmen who have finished transitioning, and that the Air Force will fully consider them members of their preferred gender.
“There won’t be any exceptions to certain policies once that gender marker is changed,” Ireland said. “We don’t want this gray area. We don’t want a third gender.”..
