the olympics allows transgender players.
there have also been NUMEROUS leagues formed specifically for the inclusion of trans/gay people.

When will Trump stop making the US a laughing stock of the world?!

Just think of the good that would have come out of combat trans surgery techniques.

We could trans the hell out of enemy jihadi wounded and send them home instead of gitmo. Everybody wins!

Give new meaning to field dressing.

I never liked the idea of trans in the military, seems more of a CIA thing to me.

I agree that transgender should not be in the military. It's more than personal rights - it's about how the military runs. There are many in the military that are part of a team, whose unity with his or her teammates could literally mean life or death. They don't need distractions or anything that might kill morale. Transgender have an alarmingly high suicide rate. They can have complications from surgery that are solely lifestyle based, and voluntary. I am all for personal rights. But the military isn't a place for this.

And regardless if you think "oh.. office jockey, won't be in combat.." ALL soldiers.. are soldiers first, and could end up in combat.

Haha! The sunburn was "unauthorized gear" on U.S. Military property. One would think other parts are, too.

Then they don't need to be in the military.

Should there be a tran in every garage? I don't mean a transmission.

My brother was refused by the military because of a cyst on his back, they didn't want to pay for removal.

I agree with his statement. Why should the military pay for a sex change? It was ridicilous from the start and catering to a few percent isn't worth it.
Who said anyone was paying for it except the individual?

who ever said the military should pay for a sex change

I didn't read the whole thread yet but wanted to give my opinion on the issue.

I think it is possible to want to ban transgenders from the military while not actually hating trans people. If There is solid evidence that allowing these people in hurts the military by costing a lot of money, or driving down morale, then I am all for not allowing them in.

Now admittedly, I have not seen that evidence.

But taking this stance does not mean I hate trans people, nor does it mean that Trump does.

We should probably not allow people with severe autism to serve, because the necessity to reduce sight and sound stimulus, drug and therapy treatments, etc. would be so expensive and impractical that it would hurt our military. However, I have a ton of respect for the autistic community.

I am so tired of the warm fuzzy love will conquer all people that want to make everything a social experiment.

I assume these people complaining would also suggest that anyone should be eligible for a draft, regardless of gender, age, or ability. We can't be discriminatory, right?

So that means they won't be happy until your deaf grandma in a wheel chair with alzheimers is as likely to be drafted as an able young man.

Having said all of that, it seems that Trump bungled the release of this policy, as they can't even answer what will happen to trans people in service now.

But all in all, this is just about a non issue to me when you look at all of the other problems this country and the world face.

when will it be that no one at all "needs" to be in the military
?
how about just no more military

who said there has to be a military at all to begin with and that only some people get to sign up to go get killed but others can't even have a chance to sign up to go get killed

?

Yeah, lol.

Every time we played soldier as a kid, we had a tranny in our squad.

Just like a John Wayne movie.

They can make planes like rosie the riveter.
