Men commit suicide more frequently than women. I think we should ban men from the military. Too risky.
How many men come back from tours of duty with depression, anxiety and other mental problems?

Menstruation is a natural process of the female gender, choosing to have your genitalia mutilated and render most often than not unserviceable is not..
You need to get some basic classes on how thing works including the human body.

If has already taken place before they joined and they can get through basic and AIT then good for them. The one thing I think could influence that is if they plan to continue hormone therapy, but that is a medical issue I am not qualified to speak on.
Like I said, if they are willing and able, let them serve.

So what happens to these soldiers with PTSD? Do we let them go on more tours of duty once they are diagnosed?

Yeah it's all about hair bows and mascara .
Our military doesn't have different uniforms for men and women. There are no Wacs or Waves anymore and women aren't going in to be Clara Bartons.
You are hopelessly archaic in your thinking.
I know quite a few women who fought in the dessert and lead men.
Not all the uniforms are the same - gender neutral uniforms have still not been fully implemented.
Its not all about uniforms anyway.
More about stupid demands for medical bills for sex changes and of course the ridiculous new 'training' that was to be forced on military personal to 'understand' their transgender colleagues. It's a nonsense that has thankfully been shut down.
Common sense prevails over pc lunacy.

He absolutely can deny gays the ability to serve. You could get kicked out for being gay prior to obama.
P.s. he'll when I joined the corps, I had to sign a document saying I wasn't gay. The potus pretty much had care Blanche control over military.
