Transgender soldier Bridget Clinch has opened up about how she fought against the Australian army after it tried to dismiss her following her gender reassignment surgery. When Clinch – who had served in the military for over a decade – told her bosses within the Australian Defence Force that she identified as a woman, she says she was given a termination notice. “I had a medical review and they said I had to leave,” she told 9news.com.au. “My fight was about getting the policy cancelled. It stated trans people have a psychiatric disorder and need to be kicked out of the military.”
